About this ebook

She’s ironed in every sense of the word, from her slick golden hair to her white button-down and prim A-line skirt. 

The woman across the restaurant counter has flint-gray eyes, chiseled planes for cheeks, and dark hair cut like a boy’s. A key is tattooed on her forearm.

The energy between them is the same every time, electric and undeniable. Painful. But there’s nothing to be done about it. A delicate gold cross hangs heavy around her neck, an ever-present reminder of her husband’s edicts on what constitutes sin. A reminder of her obligation to purity, obedience, and conformity. A reminder that she must always follow the rules.

But, today she will defy life’s rules. Today, a gray-eyed angel will unlock the door to all the things she hides from herself, to a world she’s always seen as inaccessible—forbidden.

Today, she will discover paradise.

I love the way this story was written, inside the mind of the main character. This stylistic choice allowed a powerful connection for the reader. This story gives a detailed account of how our desires and people's opinions can create such inner turmoil. The feelings we have are greatly influenced by society and that keeps us from being true to ourselves. Although short, this story evoked a lot of raw emotion. Overall, I recommend this story if you are looking for something believable, emotional, and overall steamy

I enjoyed this story. It's short, seductive, and steamy. Deducted one star because I didn't really love the end. Just my humble opinion. Feel free to read it and draw your own conclusion. Kind regards to the author.
