My Review: Stefanie Simpson has made me a new lover of contemporary and erotic romance!
I laughed, cried, blushed, and clapped throughout the adorably aggravating relationship that is Effie and Stuart. I could not put this book down and didn’t want it to end.
Simpson makes the every day events of Effie’s and Stuart’s life unique and captivating; I mean, Stuart calls Effie his “duvet” for heavens sake (haha! I love it). Their intimacy ranges anywhere from heartwarming moments where I flat out AWWwwed the whole time, to steamy role play where I was smiling so hard my blushing hurt. And, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard and been turned on all at once during a role play sex scene.
I’ve found my new favorite romance author, and I plan on reading everything she’s written and everything she intends on publishing. Sign me up for beta-reading, Stef, because I’m hooked!
