Hunger by Willsin Rowe - Review
I finally got the Kindle I’ve been dreaming of and my first purchase was Hunger, by the very talented Willsin Rowe.
Contemporary Erotica Rubenesque
Christmas time in Brisbane is always so hot and muggy you could drink it from a bowl.
Brett Freeman feels the heat like anyone, but for more than 15 years it’s been nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with Corinne. Only one thing stands between Brett and his perfect woman: her husband, Darren.
Brett is in a bit of a pickle. He’s known Corinne for the last 15 years but never made a move. Sure he’s been the shoulder to cry on, he’s cleaned her up after drunken escapades, and daydreamed about all the things he’d love to do to/with her, but he never had the courage to make a move. You snooze, you lose...
Now she’s happily married and he lives in daily turmoil seeing her loving another man, his best friend. Though he should, he can't seem to move on.
He should have taken his chance when he had it. Poor Bret. He hungers for her but she will never be his.
Or will she?
There is a lot to be said for the power of friendship.
I loved this story. It’s the perfect length for a quickie bedtime read.
You can really feel the desperation of Brett in every stolen glance. Willsin’s appreciative description of Corinne’s female form is erotic poetry. And when he finally gets his chance, though you worry for the consequences, you cheer him on.
He brings to life each sensual detail of their union and leaves you satisfied, not just with the sex, but the nice little twist at the end.
Kudos Willsin. I can’t wait to read more of your work.
