How far can you fall? Caspar had once shone brighter than any star in the sky. He led an exciting life, had a good job and the love of his family. Now he barely survives in a village where he's shunned by everyone, even his parents. Unemployed, unemployable, he consoles himself with stringless sex-lots of it. How hard can you land? Ally escapes death by a whisker when she falls in front of a train. Not an accident, someone pushed her, and she doesn't hang around to give them another shot. But she finds herself falling in a different way when she meets Caspar, and she plummets hard and fast. He's dark, he's brooding, he's hotter than any man she's ever met, and she wants him-bad. How high can they soar? With Ally's adversary closing in, plus Caspar's tendency to screw things up, if they don't open their arms and catch each other, they'll burn up in an atmosphere determined to keep them apart.
Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock-your-socks-off erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with.
Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can’t forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the most beautiful man, Ally, the heroine, has ever seen and there is an instant connection when they see each other.Ally is on the run. She hides away at her brother’s house in the country because she has had a series of mishaps, the last one could have killed her. Now she thinks maybe someone is out to get her so she is looking to start over. Ally is so likable and the scene stealer from the book. She has so many funny lines that she had me smiling throughout. What I really enjoyed was that eventually after she broke through Caspar’s grouchy demeanor he started to smile and laugh and added some of his own sarcastic comebacks.
I really enjoyed the story, it was a fast read, yet a lot of things were happening. I loved the bachelorette party they had for Ally’s friend, everyone should have one that is that creative. The sex scenes were phenomenal and plentiful, there was an oral sex scene that was probably the best I have ever read- it makes me blush just thinking back on it.
I would highly recommend this book! I love the authors writing style. The two books I have read by her had similar patterns which I just loved in a book; wild, bad boys with bad reputations that are good, decent, protective and possessive when they meet their “one”, jealousy because there are other women/men involved (no cheating just misunderstandings), spicy sexual connections, comfortable dialog and some tender, choke-up moments. My only disappointment I had was a few unanswered questions about the final conflict and Ally’s father. Also, there was a real exciting character introduced in the last few pages and I would have loved to learn more about him.
Karla says: 4.5 Stars!! Oh, how I love this author!
Another engaging, heartwarming, funny and very erotic book by Barbara Elsborg. You just get drawn into her stories from the first page, they grab you and don’t let go. She has a way of writing about lost souls, and uses humor and passion to weave a compelling story. This one had a little more of a suspenseful feel as someone one was trying to kill the quirky, delightful, good-to-the bone Ally. I wanted to reach into the pages of the book and wrap my arms around the pitiful, but scrumptious Caspar. Not to worry, Ally did a great job of consoling him by wrapping her arms, legs, lips…oh just her entire body around him. HOT STUFF!! So much fun dialogue, terrific secondary characters, a plot filled with the author’s trademark craziness, and of course passion galore!
My reason for detracting a half a star was that the ending was a bit too abrupt for me and I wish there was some more closure where some of the characters were concerned. Still in all a great read by one of my favorite authors. You can’t go wrong with a Barbara Elsborg book!
