SUMMARY
Romance novelist Paige Sinclair has always had a crush on her old high school
classmate, Rob. Decades later they meet by chance through a social network
website. They decide to meet up for a no-strings attached day of sex in a motel
room.

These are the kinds of fantasies Paige writes for a living. She never expected
to live one herself...let alone with Rob.

After a day of romping in the proverbial hay, confessions are exposed. Can the
duo survive the truth?

ROOM 11 is short and sure to curl your toes and leave you panting for more!

I had a few minutes to spare while I was waiting at the doctor's office today. Well, that's all it took to sit and enjoy Paige and Rob as they finally found their way into each other's arms and hearts. In 27 pages, my skin was rosy and I was looking for a hand fan.

Paige Sinclair writes erotic romances, but she doesn't live them. This self-proclaimed geek has always had a crush on high school football star Rob and is thrilled when the two connect on a social network like Facebook. It's the perfect venue for a writing superstar to put her best foot forward.

Their social network posts evolve into emails, which turn into daily IMs that go from casual to very erotic. Soon, the two are talking on the phone daily and planning a "friends with benefits" rendezvous.

When they do finally meet for the first time in twenty years, it is at a motel in ‘room 11'. Not interested in wasting any time, their "fuckfest" (their term, not mine) begins the moment she clears the door. These two are hot and heavy, and boy-oh-boy, am I impressed with 38-year-old Rob. *coughs* Talk about staying power. *wiping brow*

When they finally collapse into a heap of exhaustion, Paige begins to rethink her "friends with benefits" plan and Rob finds her crying. To be honest, that is where the story lost me. I was a little surprised that the first time they met face to face, they did so at a hotel planning to have sex. But I went along with it. Yet, when Paige started crying when they have never had a decent length conversation in person before (remember they knew OF each other in high school--they didn't hang together), I was confused. Nothing had taken me to the point that this woman would be ready to demand forever from this man.

That part just didn't work for me. I would have been happier if they cut the drama and just enjoyed each other, had lunch and decided that they wanted to try something more than friends with benefits after all. That they would exclusively date. For me, that would have been a fine little respite in the doctor's waiting room.

Overall, it was a super short, hot creative and sexy read. It filled my needs of the moment just fine and I was impressed with how much was accomplished in just a few pages. If you find yourself in need of a little entertainment, but you don't have the time to commit to a longer read, this is one to check out. Enjoy!
