Review: Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed Something Borrowed by Eve Dangerfield
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another delicious erotic feast with angst, frustration and hawt sexual chemistry! Ms. Dangerfield is now one of my go to authors when it comes to excellent character development combined with fantastic erotica. In this latest story, Elle Sahlstrom is reunited with a man who completely screwed her over and she can't stand, Jackson. Jackson is a playboy who sluts around. He is someone who Elle can not trust nor does she ever want to see again. However, Jackson is the best man in her best friend's wedding. She can skip the wedding, right? A best friend would understand, right?

This story starts out a little slow as we learn exactly what Jackson did to Elle. He is pretty much an jerk and when he gets his ass handed to him, he thinks he can move on. But he can't. This is the problem with people who slut around with one-night stands and are completely indiscreet with their sexual partners. When the right one comes along, the slut may be damaged goods that no one is willing to commit to.

I like the conflict in this story and how Jackson tried to redeem himself. It is telling how a person's childhood can impact their decisions whether they think it does or not. Jackson isn't a bad guy. He's just that "guy" no one believes can keep his dick in his pants. This kind of reputation, be it a male or female, is hard to overcome. When finding the "one" who is not so slutty, it is quite the challenge. The way Jackson is designed it interesting because he is so flawed yet he has a good heart. His interactions with Elle are telling and I enjoyed reading every mess up and cheered when he did something right. Usually, I can't stand a character like Jackson, but Ms. Dangerfield made him relate-able. Elle definitely has the patience of a saint.

From an erotic standpoint, this story is smoking and so good. When the two characters hit the sheets or any place they can, it is delicious to read. The story is well balanced between the sexual interludes and Jackson's redemption. I wasn't sure Jackson was going to pull it off, but he did. This happily ever after romance is recommended to erotica lovers who enjoy lovers reunited themes.
