**** 4 grinning stars ****

HOLY CRAP! See that huge grin on the star? Well, that was me in during the kinky part of this book!

Thank you, Momo! For pointing me to this book or at least uttered the words "male characters likes to be tied up".

What was I saying?

What the fuck happened! I read a MF book!

And I fucking loved it!

She’d picked up the end of an old rope that had been tangled by the side of the cottage. As she toyed with the fray, she looked pensive. She said something, but Rob didn’t hear. His entire world had shrunk small enough to fit in her fist— the same fist clasping that length of coarse hemp. She drew it through her hands, meter by meter, working out the knots.
“. . . free will,” she was saying, the words reaching Rob’s brain through a dreamlike fog, thin and watery.
“True,” he said, at a loss for anything else. All the blood had left his head, surging southward. Thank goodness he was kneeling— his cock was hard, pounding hot and angry.
Merry kept talking, but he lost the thread. She wandered closer. With the knots banished, she gripped the tail of the rope in her fist, making an L of her arm and winding the length around her elbow in uniform loops. Rough, rasping rope against that smooth, perfect skin. And Rob on his knees (...) watching as she coiled, coiled, coiled.

Put it away, put it away. If she didn’t, he’d be stuck kneeling here, scouring until he scrubbed straight through the basin. He fidgeted, the hard ground punishing his sore knees. And that rope in her hands, spooling.
A word broke through. “Rob?”
He stared at her face, avoiding her hands, willing her features and words into focus. “Sorry. What?”
As she hung up the rope and dusted her palms on her trousers, the spell broke.
Jesus fucking Christ. He gulped a breath.


Awesome awesome awesome!

I liked the writing. I loved that it was alternate POV between Merry and Rob. Getting to know Rob's thoughts and desires, and Merry's response to them.

Some of the book was a bit blah-blah-blah, but the kink was sooo good!

Cue happy dance:


I'm actually a bit flabbergasted for actually liking a MF book. It's been ages since I've actually enjoyed one, and I stopped reading them because it was all the same-the same-the same.
Well, this wasn't "the same as the rest of them". The setting and the characters were very different from a lot of MF books I've read before. Scottish highland and bit of bondage?
I'll have mine double, please.

I want my own Rob. Can I have a Rob on my own, please?
I want to be Merry. Can I be Merry? I am Merry. Kind of. Or want to be.

Don't judge. 'Cus

Whaaat? ;)
