Vanilla Twist (Walk on the Wild Side #3) by C.J. Ellisson

Vanilla Twist (Walk on the Wild Side #3)
By C.J. Ellisson

Heather thinks she has it all—an interesting lover, a dream job, and a new wardrobe to match her take-charge attitude. But everyone has a past, and when Heather confronts hers at work she’ll be hard-pressed to hold onto her newfound confidence and resolve. Does she trust Tony enough to let him help her or will she tackle the issue on her own?

Still intrigued by the young woman and the multiple layers she presents to the world, Tony begins to change his life, too—for what he hopes is the better. He quit his high-powered career to find peace in a less stressful day-to-day existence. Desire for Heather still invades his every waking moment, and when trouble threatens their sexual explorations he makes the hardest choice of his life. One he may soon regret.

My Thoughts:

The title Vanilla Twist perfectly categorizes the books in the Walk on the Wild Side series. They are vanilla...with a twist. They have sex with a little exploration. I wouldn't go as far as to call the series erotica or BDSM, they do have a bit of spice to them but there's a lot more to the series than sex. 

It's hard to believe that Heather and Tony are the same people from Vanilla on Top. In fact, it took me a little to make the connection that they were the same people...perhaps it had been too long since I read Vanilla on Top. They have both grown so much and I love the people they've become. Tony is such a gem...and let me just tell you that there is a photo shoot in this book that you DO NOT want to miss! In fact, I really enjoyed the added photography angle in this book since it's an on again, off again hobby of mine.

There are (of course) bumps on the road for Heather and Tony and some pretty heavy drama...what's a book without drama afterall!? Like ususal, I can't tell you if they overcome but just know that it's definitely worth the journey to find out.
