I received a copy of this book for an honest review for Amber's Reading Room.
Take one heartbroken heiress and one world famous male model, throw in a heaping helping of bedroom time with splashes of Christmas spirit and you get A Window to Love by Fifi Flowers. This erotic romance puts a new spin on boy meets girl and I dare you to not fall for the sweet and sexy leads.
For the first time in the seven years since her parent’s tragic death, Melissa Camille Bennette is braving the streets of Manhattan to try to find her holiday spirit. Checking out the glossy and gorgeous department store windows had been a long standing holiday tradition for her family, but now those windows just leave her feeling lost.
“Now I am alone with only my memories of bundling up in scarves, mittens, hats and sipping steaming cups of hot cocoa as my parents, and I stood exactly where I stand now excitedly discussing every detail of the masterfully created miniature wonderlands. There was no excitement this year; there was no one to ooh and aah with, to dream with, to share the special spirit of the holiday.”
Enter model Evan Drake. When Melissa spots a picture of Evan and makes an off-handed comment about what she’d love to do to him, he just happens to be close enough to call her on it. Heat ignites between the two and they quickly agree to spend the night together. What was meant to be one night of pleasure quickly engulfs the pair, leaving each wanting much more physically and maybe even emotionally.
“It’s crazy, but I find myself wanting to pleasure Melissa until she is completely consumed with me. I wanted her obsessed with me. I wanted her to beg me to never leave her because I didn’t want to be without her.”
The course of true love has always been a bumpy one and it only gets bumpier when it starts with a one-and-done booty call. Can Evan convince Melissa his tabloid worthy relationship history is a thing of the past? Can Melissa trust Evan with her heart after keeping it on lock-down for so long?
I don’t know what I was expecting jumping into A Window to Love, but I was pleasantly surprised with a well written erotic romance that managed to put the hot and heavy front and center and kept it balanced with just the right amount of sweetness. Melissa and Evan both have back stories that could make them seem a little larger than life, but Flower keeps them grounded and realistic. I enjoyed getting the POV of both leads and it made me cheer for them to find a happy ever after together.
One small issue keeps me from rating this higher. Both Melissa and Evan occasionally like to slip French into their conversations. Each has a legitimate reason, Melissa having some French heritage and Evan being an international model, but as I invested in the couple I found that it would pull me out of certain scenes. Some may like it, it just wasn’t my thing.
“Oh mon dieu. Please. Pleeeeease stop torturing moi. I beg you, Evan.”
All in all A Window to Love is a very original and solid steamy read that corresponds with the season, definitely worth checking out. Flowers is a first time author and the quality of A Window to Love has me impressed. I think you will be too.
