By Megan Erickson
She wanted fantasy. He's about to make it a reality...
Grant Osprey just had the hottest sex of his life. Sure, they were both in costume, and yes, it was anonymous, but he never expected her to bolt in the middle of the night without so much as a good bye, let alone exchanging numbers. Or names. All he's left with are her panties and some seriously X-rated memories...until he meets his business partner's little sister.
Only Chloe Talley isn't the bold, sexy vixen he remembers. And she wants nothing to do with him.
Cosplay is Chloe's only chance to leave her boring, socially awkward world behind. To forget that she's failing at life and can't be with anyone, let alone a single father like Grant. But the raw hunger between them is undeniable. With him, she can be a misbehaving maid. A sexy call girl for hire. Each scene pushes Chloe beyond her strict boundaries, until Grant demands a character she can't play.
Review Quickie (Sari would approve of this terminology):
Megan Erickson's writing gets two thumbs up from me. I've read 7 of her books so far and have enjoyed them all.
Grant and Chloe are H O T together. I loved the nerdy cosplay as much as the steamy bedroomplay.
Speaking of nerdy cosplay, I especially liked the Philadelphia Comic Con reference since that's where I am as you're reading this post! Woot! I can't believe I'm going to be under the same roof as Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Sebastian Stan, Stephen Amell, Christopher Lloyd, etc., etc. Here's hoping I don't make a fool of myself at any point this weekend lol!
Anyway, back to the book. Both Chloe and her brother, Ethan, have some pretty heavy baggage dragging them down. It was interesting (in a heartbreaking kind of way) to see how they have (or haven't) dealt with a past trauma. I felt for them and wanted both to get their happily ever afters...but you'll have to read this book and book 4, Leveling the Field, to find out what happens.
Now I'm going to make like a gazelle and leap on out of here. Places to go and people to see...
