Shelly’s Naughty Book Review: Sextricity, by Author, Amy Redwood



The book’s blurb:

Jillian has a five-octave voice, a singing gig at a diamond exhibition in Hong Kong and a nonexistent sex life. During the flight to Hong Kong, she meets an electrifyingly sexy stranger. She’s never experienced sexual energy so intense. She falls deeply into a charged affair with many firsts—first orgasm, first-time sex in a bathroom stall, first time throwing all caution to the wind. He’s the best lover she’s ever had—and unbeknownst to Jillian, he’s also the most deadly.
Parker can control and harness electricity. It makes him a talented thief. Until he meets Jillian. His ability goes haywire and sparks are flying, literally. Seducing her out of her clothes while trying not to kill her is a challenge he’s willing to take. Jolt by sensual jolt, he breaks through her sexual inhibitions. Lust, not love, is his goal. He plans to steal diamonds, not her heart.
But with sex so powerfully addicting, even the best-laid plans can change.

First, I want to thank Ju Dimello @ The girl is a regular at giving books away. You should go check her out. And, it was a surprise I won an  e-book by Amy Redwood, Sextricity. Of course, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Wow! And, more wow!

Let me tell you what I liked about this novella. It was an easy read. No bumps. The plot was well thought out and written. Ms. Redwood immediately sucked me into the two characters' world. Two strangers on a plane on the way to China make eye contact. There’s chemistry and not long into the first chapter they’re in the bathroom doing chitty-chitty-bang-bang. Yup. Right away we know where this is heading.

These two characters had more wild-nasty moments than I do in a month with Sweetman. To be honest, I look for ways not to…you know(don’t take it personally, Sweetman, you’re my snuggle bear). But, I couldn’t escape from it in this novella. It was everywhere like dead people in The Sixth Sense.

OMG. Lots of sucking (not vampire-kind-of-sucking),stuffing, moaning and groaning, and blowing up lights and televisions. These two had me blushing. They had me thinking, ‘People really do this kind of stuff? Really? Ewwe.’

Well done, Ms. Redwood. You had me blushing like my mom did when she told me about the birds and the bees, and what boys do to girls and vise versa. She also, had me wondering are they going to fall in love? Is Parker going to get caught with his hand in the cookie jar-Jillian’s or the jewels? Is someone going to walk in on Jillian and Parker while they’re doing the twisted pretzel together? Will someone notice if Jillian’s not wearing panties? These things kept me on the edge of my seat and I had to read more.

Shelly gives the plot and the writing twenty stars. The sex part, well, that gets two hot cheeks, and a WOW!

Happy blogging, reading, and writing!

  4. @Shelly. Woof! Somebody turn on the fan. Sounds like this book is right up my alley. Allow me to embarrass everyone and say "hurray for sucking."

    @Beth. Just read it to you hubby. The worse he can do is run away.

  5. Lol sounds like one hell of a hot read. ^_^ Not sure I'd want to put myself into the heroine's shoes, though. Imagine what the static would do to my hair...


  6. @Beth: I agree with Laila. Read it to your hubby.

  10. Oh, dear. I've heard the old expression of "ears burning," but, umm, wow. I think my eyes are burning now. I can see why you might blush. I agree with the others, this sounds like an interesting premise.

    Thanks for stopping by my place today! Nice to see you. (And I do so like your template and the Kansas, Wizard of Oz, slant.

  11. @Bryce: Yes. Electricity and chitty-chitty-bang-bang together. Very interesting.
