He promises to indulge her secret fantasies, if only she dares to accept.
Socialite Janine Bartolino has always been in the public eye. Managing her late father's philanthropic interests, she keeps her pastimes above reproach. But when a surprise thirtieth birthday celebration at a private club opens her eyes to wicked pleasures, and an intriguing man offers her the chance of a lifetime to indulge her every secret fantasy, Janine takes a leap of faith…at great personal risk.
Phillipe "Del" Delacroix knows what Janine wants, even if she isn't aware of it herself—a chance to explore the world of voyeurs and exhibitionists. Soon, the once staid and reserved woman transforms into a daring and passionate lover, giving Del everything he could ask for in a partner. But when something happens that puts Janine's reputation, her career, all she's worked for, in jeopardy…Del must prove that loving him is worth the risk.
See Watch Me by Shelley Bradley for the first story in the Sneak Peek Duet.

An honest look at how the world's morality views can impede an individual from finding her own happiness, SHOW ME is the novella length story of Janine and her journey into voyeurism, exhibitionism…and love.
Janine is a woman with fantasies, like us all. She just happens to fantasize about being watched while she has hot monkey love. On her thirtieth birthday, her best friends take her to a voyeur/exhibitionist club. I loved her honest reaction. She didn't hem and haw and then get dragged into the action.
I'm with Janine. She is a girl whose face is regularly in the society page. She is the CEO of her family's foundation. Marring her image will destroy the foundation's as well. A thirty-year-old executive should know better than to jump into a potential PR nightmare.
And she does.
What I enjoyed the most was the reality of the character's attitude. It is a concern for people, maybe of all walks of life, but especially those who frequent the society pages, to worry about their sexual proclivities becoming public knowledge and damaging their career. That concern does impede the involvement of many who would otherwise participate.
Making the choice to participate would be slow and full of trepidation. It would have to have some intensely satisfying moments that made it irresistible when your sense of dread reared its ugly head. Janine walked through all of that with the help of Del.
Del owns the sex club Janine visits, but to her surprise she learns that he is also the CEO of Delacroix Motors, and faces the same concerns and judgments she must endure. He is respectful and caring and knows how to draw out her inner sex kitten in a safe and satisfying way. Del does grow a little on his own, but it isn't well developed. We don't climb into his skin and feel the changes happening as we do with Janine. This journey is definitely more about Janine than Del and their happily ever after.
SHOW ME is an erotic novella about the journey into the exhibition lifestyle. Outside of the voyeur/exhibitionism, the sex is pretty vanilla and tame (although absolutely satisfying!). Jaci Burton is always going to deliver plenty of steam, with this one you also get a great personal journey. Enjoy!
