Olivia Gage is a mainstream novelist who wants to spice things up by writing erotica. Having no real life experience in the subject, she develops an online friendship with a man whose sexual exploits would make any woman's toes curl. Jack Geary has a taste for BDSM and is more than willing to fill Olivia's head with tales of his conquests. He is graphic in his descriptions and that sets her imagination ablaze. If she comes to see him, he'll show her that he's very experienced in all things sexual, which will give her enough material to write those erotic stories.

What starts as innocent banter quickly turns into a wicked flirtation. Jack wants to meet Olivia in the flesh to see if she lives up to the images that have been running through his head. Though they play a cat and mouse game for over a year, a meeting is finally set. Sparks fly and their attraction is undeniable, but Olivia aims to keep Jack at arm's length. It's her intent to keep this meeting strictly professional. Jack adheres to her rules and sets out to educate his apt pupil, giving Olivia a front row seat to his sexual prowess. But all this looking but not touching is driving them both crazy, and their resolves are beginning to crumble. Will Olivia and Jack break the rules and succumb to their desires or will the secrets they each hold cause them to walk away without ever knowing if it could've been real?

This story was cute, sexy and then it became so steamy it may fog up your windows. The sex scenes were well written and HOT, HOT, HOT! I loved Jack and Olivia. Their progression from the friend zone into maybe something more was interesting to watch. Jack wasn't the cookie cutter elusive, brooding, male billionaire. The author took a flawed male character and actually made him likeable. I also loved that Olivia stuck to her guns, no matter how hard Jack persuade her to do otherwise. The only part I didn't totally get was when Olivia cut all ties with Jack after she returned home. Though I'm sure the author had her reasons, it didn't seem like something Olivia would do. That aside, this book was awesome and I highly recommend it.
