The blurb reads,
“No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety.
Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.
One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?”
So I am here taking a bit of a risk, writing such a bland review for such a popular author’s book. But I really can’t help it, there were deficiencies in the book that I just could not ignore.
Heath is the second brother to be written about in the Wild Boys After Dark series.
I was completely taken over by Logan. Read my review for it here!
And then I wanted to devour on the other brothers and their tales. Heath starts off great, steamy and sexy. And believe me, the book is filled with sex scenes. So much so, that someone can enjoy a session, reading it with their special one because it will leave you feeling turned on and wanting to do something more.
I like that Melissa constructs stories around large families with each member spanning a book. It gives the reader a lot more interaction with a particular character.
I absolutely loved Logan. And the story was fast paced too. So I had to request for stories of the other Wild Boys. And the second book in the series is Heath.
To be very fair, I shouldn’t have expected Heath’s story to be something similar to Logan’s but then I did expect a lot more than what I got. I got a lot of sex, barely any interaction with the characters or who they were as persons and also the whole story.
I found it defective that this book did not focus on Heath or Ally. You ended up knowing about Heath because you read Logan and knew where he came from. I didn’t know who Heath was as a person, what made him choose his profession, what characteristics described him and what his dreams were. These were more transparent in Logan. And i loved Logan for that.
This book was a bit of a let down that way. It’s singular focus on how Heath and Ally fell in love felt good to read but it didn’t give me that story I look for in a Romance. Sure Ally and Heath felt for each other and found that they loved each others company. But there wasn’t anything beyond that. Which is why my ire.
I looooved the sex scenes!! They were absolutely HOT! SMOKIN HOT! And seeing how Ally and Heath fell in love was great and it reminded me of how love tended to open all your boundaries and how letting a person inside somehow made you feel more complete.
I was so glad Ally was smart. I’m tired of heroines being Damsels in Distress. I mean they do need to have some spine and Ally sure did.
I loved how Ally seemed to integrate into Heath’s life. It is something every woman aspires to do and she was great.
I just wish the book focused on the characters rather than their story. It would have earned me a full 5 stars. I’m disappointed that the book made its sole focus SEX. I would have thought that Melissa would have described the character but then, I’m wary of her books now, if these are the sort of books that come up, I don’t want to be invested in series where I only read about two people having sex with each other.
Let’s hope Jackson and Cooper live up to the high bar that Logan set.
My Rating: 2.5/5
