I loved it.

Review(18+; sexual innuendos included):

This novella popped my erotica cherry. Hard. Seriously. I couldn't even stomach all previous stories in this sub-genre. Thanks Jenn LeBlanc for pointing me in the right direction!

When one (aka the general public) hears the word erotica, a woman dressed in a leather bustier and lucite hooker heels (think goddess Shauna Sand) wielding a lethal looking riding crop comes to mind. And yes, for a long time I thought the same. This novella is emotionally packed along with super hot, make-you-tingle-down-there sex. I laughed, I loved and I came to see the softer side of erotica. (Don't sue me Sears. I'm watching an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as I write this review.) And I can't believe this review is coming hard and fast.

7 Things: (and not that stupid Miley Cyrus song)
  1. Daniel has been hiding out on his property for three years, five months and nine days since his wife's death from cancer. They met while she was hosting a gala at the New York Public Library and he was working alphabetizing in the Map Room. He spends seven lust filled days with Eleanor whom he ends up falling in love with. 
  2. Eleanor is one sassy submissive. She knows her place but she still tries to push the boundaries of her position. She is sent to Daniel to get him out of his funk. Seven days of sex and easy camaraderie with Daniel has her wishing for the same thing with her owner. Alas! It isn't so. 
  3. Maggie was Daniel's wife who passed away due to cancer. She was a top attorney and his older woman. By day, she was a super powerful attorney and by night, a complete submissive. 
  4. Mutual acquaintance. Eleanor's owner who loans her to Daniel. We don't get any back story as to who this mysterious acquaintance is. There is a surprise twist as to who he is. I wasn't that shocked since I read DANIEL PART TWO in which all is revealed. (Don't judge me.) 
  5. Librarians are hot. That is all. 
  6. Holy Ambiguously Gay duo, there's fisting! Don't try this at home kids er, adults unless you're absolutely prepared. Wait, there's a breathing technique? I guess if a baby can come out of there, how bad could a grown man's fist feel? 
  7. Eating. What? These people actually eat real food, converse, sort books in his library AND feel emotions? What the hell kind of erotica novella is this?! Got you there you pervert. I know what you were thinking. And yes, there's a little of that going on too. 

Favorite Quote:
'So you,' she said, meeting his eyes, 'are a librarian. What does that make me then? A seven-day loan?'
Daniel laughed as he set his books aside. He moved toward her and gripped her knees.
'Seven-day loan...I'm not sure I like the thought of giving you back.' He slid his hands up her thighs and took her by the hips.
'But what about the overdue fines?' she asked.
'I think I can afford them,' he said.
Overall: Although it's a short story, I really liked it. I don't know how Ms. Reisz put so much emotion and a sexually charged atmosphere in this too short tale, but she did. This isn't just some story that starts off with a potentially great premise and fizzles out to nothing but sex, sex, sex (although there was quite a bit of it). It gripped me from the first page until the last. I want more! Thank goodness for Daniel Part Two (featuring more Daniel and his HEA). Who knew erotica could be so much more? And why isn't it September yet? (In case you didn't know, that's when her next book The Siren is released.)
