She wants a baby. He wants her. Simple enough, right?
Ellie Godfrey has kissed her share of frogs. So many, in fact, that she fears she won’t recognize her prince if and when he finally comes along. Tired of waiting for THE ONE, Ellie decides to have a baby on her own before it’s too late.
When Jasper Autry hears about Ellie’s plan, what else can he do but step in and offer to “contribute” to her project. Does that make him an opportunist? Whatever. He wants the perpetually out-of-reach Ellie Godfrey, and when he sees his chance, he takes it. That she’s the sister of his business partner and close friend Flynn gives him pause, but it doesn’t stop him from having what he wants.
As Jasper and Ellie embark upon their secret “project,” he makes it clear that for as long as they’re together, he’s in charge—in the bedroom anyway. After the hottest sex of her life, Ellie realizes she’s made a deal with the devil himself.
Warning: If you hate foul-mouthed heroes who like it a little rough and dirty, this might not be the book for you…Contains hot and sexy BDSM scenes among other things that might not appeal to the faint of heart. Enter at your own risk and enjoy!
Rating : 5 out of 5 Stars
Ravenous is the fifth installment in the Quantum series and it is definitely my favorite so far! It follows the friends-to-lovers relationship between Ellie Godfrey, sister of superstar actor Flynn Godfrey featured in the original Quantum trilogy, and Jasper Autry. Ellie and Jasper are amazing characters, their story was heart melting and pulled me in from the first page. I adored everything about this sexy, intense and tender erotic romance, with witty dialogues and heartfelt moments. The writing was flawless and this book was perfect of sweetness and sexiness.
Ellie Godfrey might be Hollywood royalty, she has never even come close to being in love. In her mid-thirties, she has the feeling her biological clock is ticking and has decided to resort to a sperm bank to find a biological father for her future child. Jasper Autry has been her friend for years and there is affection and trust between them. Jasper is her brother’s business partner and an Award-winning cinematographer, known for a long series of brief romantic relationships.
As the story unfolded, it was obvious that Jasper had always been into Ellie but was convinced that he was not the right man for her. However, offering “his contribution” to her baby project was a no-brainer and a perfect opportunity to finally have more with her! Although Ellie never expected his offer, she easily agrees to his terms. She is attracted to him and his sexy British accent! I loved that everything was easy between them, nothing was forced. Jasper has many secrets, he is relieved he can be himself with Ellie and discuss his kinky sexual preferences and his need for dominance. Ellie is open minded, she totally trusts Jasper and accepts to explore new frontiers with him.
Jasper is the whole package, he is sexy, lighthearted and kind, but he hides his wounds behind his smile. He knows the life he has made for himself in L.A. is on a timer. What Jasper and Ellie shared felt real. They are both more and more invested in their relationship, but are conflicted by their intense feelings and the temporary status of their arrangement. Jasper doesn’t want to burden Ellie and his not yet conceived child with his family legacy and obligations. But he didn’t count on Ellie’s decision to fight for him and convince him he can have it all.
This story was simply beautiful and tugged at my heartstrings, big time! I loved the extended family spirit with all the characters from the previous (and future, I hope) Quantum books. It can be read as a standalone and is told in Ellie and Jasper’s point of view. Definitely a favorite book by a talented author!
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
