Review: Desperate Thoughts: The Gift by Ian Dalton

On his deathbed, Victoria Wilde's husband David leaves her with a gift; a replica of the most intimate part of him and makes her promise to go on with her life and share her most cherished gifts with another. But even after fourteen months the young widow finds herself unable to enjoy his gift or share her own. When Victoria spots a man who could be her late husband's younger twin, she's reminded of a story David shared of him as an insecure college freshman, who was given the gift of self-confidence by a clandestine sexual encounter with a beautiful older woman, and Victoria relives the erotic experience with her Davidesque stranger. Afterward, she's re-awakened sexually and motivated to do the same for other deserving young men in a way that both honors her lost love's memory and satisfies her desperately unfulfilled desires. With each new encounter the risk grows along with the passion until events spiral out of control and she's forced to choose between continuing down a path of self-destruction or finally letting go of the past.  description taken from here.

This prequel to Dalton's full length Erotica called Inappropriate Thoughts.  That book will be out in the summer of 2011.

So, onward with my review!

There were a lot of sex scenes, we're talking approximately about more than half the book. But they were very well written sex scenes, and hello, this is Erotica; so if you can't handle the heat (and man is it hot!) then don't pick up the book. But I know that everyone here loves these genres or you wouldn't be reading this review. 

I had tears running down my cheeks at times because I felt so sorry for Victoria and her loss. But at the same time, Brad was such an easy and gentle character to like.  It was almost impossible not to cheer the guy on.

Though the ending was sad, I felt it ended right. And, besides, this was just the prequel (said to be of Victoria's background story) to the full length book Inappropriate Thoughts.  While in the next installment Victoria might not be playing the staring role, she will be an important player. 

As much as I would like to say more, I don't want to spoil the story for you guys, so I'll stop talking (typing) now.

At only .99 cents the book is definitely worth the time go download and read.

Heat Rating= Erotic!  Watch out here comes some book porn.

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!
