On the flap: She fell willingly, seduced by the erotic foreignness of all that he was.
Words can be more powerful than touch. Stimulate and engage the senses, then watch what happens...
They began a daring affair a few weeks ago, baring skin, sensual secrets—their very souls—before their bedroom windows, situated across the street from one another. Now they've taken it to the next level. The laptop screen has added sound to their intimate liaisons, and his voice, that delicious French accent, is oh, so sexy. His laughter teases good shivers across her skin, and his sensual commands seduce her deeper into a world of erotic play. Fantasies lure them into a new intimacy and a surprising trust that the two strangers who have never touched welcome.
Yet frustrations grow as she pines for his touch. They must meet. Soon. But a secret is revealed that will challenge their desires and the trust both have earned.
Return to the heroine's Parisian apartment as she continues her relationship with Monsieur Sexy, and they explore the delicious intricacies of cyber-sex.
Book #2 in the Paris Secrets trilogy begins with a bang...
If you haven’t read the first book in the trilogy, Window, you will definitely want to start there. This is a progressive journey and to fully appreciate the changes and nuances, you need to go to the beginning.
You’ll remember in Window it is all about the sense of sight. The two characters are only able to see each other through their bedroom windows and communicate with written signs on a notepad. This second outing builds on the unique ideals of the first. In Screen, we pick up with the man going to Berlin for business. He has left our heroine a note with his Skype address where they can further their inimitable connection. Fortunately, as neurotic as she was in the first, she has grown in a short period of time and takes a chance on Monsieur Sexy. They expand on their relationship by adding sound and eventually smell. It’s truly a sensuous expedition.
As they embark on their cyber relationship, she quickly discovers her Monsieur Sexy is indeed a Frenchman. It seems kismet for her fantasies of wanting a French lover while in Paris. They continue to satisfying their sexual needs with their flirty, teasing, and most importantly the steamy Jack and Jill sessions. More than that, they begin to learn about each other; their parents, their jobs, their dreams, and a possibility of a future. It begins to grow organically into a real relationship and not something based only on their physical attractions to each other. Towards the end we are thrown a bit of a curveball when a secret is revealed. Will this be their end?
As a reader we have yet to learn her name, but we do get his. I will leave you to read Screen if you’d like to learn it. When reading the trilogy, you’ll realize this is a huge step forward in amplifying their intimacy.
Much like the first installment, this is erotic rollercoaster of growing emotions and scintillating fantasies. It’s sheer perfection in ingenuity in a genre that can become stale.
