Are you just going to stand there and watch?
Eleanor Briggs just can’t help herself. Every night, the sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she’ll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him…
Or are you going to join in?
Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible. That is until a simple night of reading at a local coffee shop becomes something far steamier when a beautiful brunette comes by and leaves a note telling him to look out his bedroom window at midnight. But when the time comes, neither of them will be truly ready for what follows…
Have you ever passed someone on the street or seen them from afar and yearn instantly to know them? To find out what makes them tick? Perhaps find out if that body you know is hidden under that suit is something that can set your sheets on fire at night? Eleanor sure does. She promised her dying sister she would live. That she would love. That she’d have no regrets. Fulfilling that promise starts with finding out if the man in the building across from hers, the one who leaves his curtains open, can make her feel like the other women he has brought home. Because Eleanor watched and she loved every minute of it.
Trey never expected his sex hiatus to take such a drastic turn. One minute he’s trying to enjoy Pride and Prejudice and the next an extremely hot woman reading an erotic romance at a highbrow coffee shop is offering him a glimpse into her bedroom from across the street, Eleanor is everything Trey has ever wanted on the surface, but past that, can he accept the true woman underneath?
If voyeurism is your thing, Looking Inside by Beth Kery is most definitely for you. From Eleanor being a peeping tom, to putting on a show herself from afar, this entire book was hot, hot, hot! What I enjoyed most though was being witness to Eleanor coming out of her shell in the wake of her sisters death, and learning to embrace life with the vigor it deserves. Putting herself out there took a lot of courage, especially with a man like Trey who was self assured and knew what he wanted from the get go. Cracking that impenetrable shell with her sexy striptease and bringing a man like that to his knees is something she never thought herself capable of until now.
Both Trey and Eleanor were looking for something casual. A few sexy romps and then done. But Trey was fascinated by the different sides of Eleanor he witnessed and went about trying to figure her out. Was she the sexy woman in the coffee shop or the shy woman who seemed unsure where to go once her play acting was over? Their emotional connection surpasses the physical quickly as both realized something casual wasn’t going to work this time.
Eleanor spends a lot of the book worrying over the fact that Trey might find out she’s not the persona she’s portraying. She’s got a job in a museum, her clothes are all leftovers from her sister, even the apartment wasn’t hers. What she fails to see is that both of those personas make up the whole. I really enjoyed watching as that realization happened in smart bits throughout the book. It definitely made her feel more real to the reader. Aside from the high rise striptease, I also loved how wonderfully real the story line was too.
Beth Kery weaves her tales with heart and lots of hot sauce! Looking Inside is a voyeuristic love story sure to leave you wanting to peek inside just one more time!
I give Looking Inside by Beth Kery 4 stars!
