Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Alana MacGregor craves excitement, but when her sometimes lover dumps her at a popular sex club, she wonders if she's outgrown her live-fast-and-recover-later lifestyle. The last thing she expects is to run into the nerdy guy she rebuffed in high school—or for him to rock her world in ways no other man ever has.
Hot on the trail of a story, Carter Nicholas can't believe his luck at encountering the one woman he's never forgotten. He's come a long way from being a wall-hugging geek. Now he gets all A's between the sheets. But can he convince Alana he's her sure ticket to an unforgettable night—and maybe much more?

A whirlwind ride of steam and romance that left me breathless and panting for more. REVEAL ME proves good things come in small packages. This "Quickie" got right to the heart (and the heat) and left one heck of a smile on my face and sigh in my heart. I just love when the geek grows up into one heck of a man and returns to claim his woman. "Mine!" *swoons*
If chocolate isn't on your diet anymore, this just might be the perfect quick pick-me-up you need to revive and energize. REVEAL ME is one of Ellora's Cave's shorts called "Quickies". It was a two-hour escape that left me smiling and energized. (Ok, and maybe a little hot and bothered)
I'm not the fan of short stories but this one worked for me. The fact that Alana and Carter "Nick" Nicholas, had known each other and been on a date in high school gave them the history that helped me to find their attraction far more believable. It's "the one that got away" tale. With the relationship already established, Ms Quinn was able to demonstrate character growth through the different choices the characters made this time around.
Alana is pretty much your popular bad girl who has grown up to regret the selfish diva that she had been. Nick was the geeky guy she used who grew up to be a buff successful reporter. He still has a little of his inner geek in him. As on top of the world as he is, she still brings him to his knees and then takes him to the edge.
He isn't one for public play. He's only at Kink, a sex club, to write a story. But for her, the barstool, the lawn, heck anywhere is the right place for him to ‘be' with her.
She'd just been dumped by her jerk of a lover for Candy with the plastic boobs. Alana knows she isn't good enough for Nick, that he deserves better, but it's really hard to tell that to her heart and her libido when he looks at her the way he does. Like she hung the moon.
Their fire has been smoldering for years and it only takes one touch for it to combust. And combust. And combust again. All. Night. Long.
This one could certainly make the time on the treadmill fly by. No one would know it was the book that was causing you to sweat either. So if you have a quick break to fill, need to put the pep back into your step or just want to treat yourself right, this Quickie may be just what you are looking for. Enjoy!
