Sinclair Mahoney might be far from an expert, but she could guess that much. Peacefully asleep in the gleaming four-poster, Hunter had obviously done this before. There were three brand-new toothbrushes in his en suite, along with half a dozen fresh towels and an assortment of mini toiletries in a basket on the marble counter. He had everything a woman needed if she wanted to make a simple, independent exit—which was exactly what Sinclair had in mind. Last night had been good. Okay, last night had been incredible.

First and foremost do not, under any circumstances let the fact that the hero is a virgin sway you from reading this. It is really quite erotic reading about a grown man and his first time. Hunter is a recluse, hiding away from the world. Scarred from an accident when he was young, he has kept himself closed off. Closed off from the world. Closed off from the thought that anyone would want anything to do with him when his face looked the way it did. Gretchen is a writer and one hell funny chick.
With bills piling up she takes a job offering her lead writer. The job entails writing a story based off love letters found in an old mansion. She takes it on, even with the strange request that she is to stay in said Mansion, as the letters are not to removed from the house. He became intrigued with her, and comes up with a plan to have her in his house with the hopes of getting to know her and having a friendship.
She soon realises that Hunter really is shy and she is determined to break through, even if that means coming on to him. You could feel the pull she had on him and how he would push away… Afraid. But with persistence she finally broke through. Slowly she would introduce a new level of touching or foreplay. Each time he would struggle within himself then pull away.
Soon she realises that he is a virgin. She released him from her mouth and shook her head "I like it when you touch me. Show me what you want. Please, Hunter. The look in his eyes was a mixture of frenzied longing and Something else.
She wanted to make that look go away, but it would take time. For some reason, sex made the man skittish. She had to be patient. For me it was believable and oh so right.
The build up was H. T The not quite sex was H. T The first touch was H. She moaned in response " That feels so good, Hunter. But not only does Gretchen bring Hunter out from his world he has been living in, she must fight to prove to him that hiding behind his scars is holding him back. No one who knew you could. Normally the female would have the hangups and reading it in the reverse role was strange. Especially with the virgin aspect of it all. For me it was a little more heartbreaking.
You understood his pain. You felt his hunger and need for Gretchen, being in his head at times and experiencing all the firsts with him. I never thought to have a woman in my life, ever. I thought my face would turn off any woman worth having. I never thought I would be lucky enough to meet someone like you. I have no illusions as to what this means to you, but for me. It is the world. Or can he trust himself with another person, let go and allow himself to be loved?
I really enjoyed this. I loved Stranded with the Billionaire but I must admit I loved this more. I love series where we get a little of each character that is to come.
