She doesn’t want wild and raunchy, just a little spice…
Stephanie Faulkner listens to her neighbor’s nightly sexcapades through her bedroom wall. What used to make her blush now has her reaching for her vibrator. But she’s had enough self-fulfillment and now wants the real thing.
He wants commitment and long-term, not a quick roll…
The only woman Parker Madison ever wanted for long-term was Stephanie…but she’s off-limits. He’s tried to find a substitute but there just isn’t another woman like her. Now that she’s available, if he gives her time to get over her ex-husband…will he finally get his long-desired chance?
Short-term doesn’t lead to long term. Or does it…?
But when Stephanie digs up the courage to ask Parker for something a little exciting and spicy, he nervously rejects her. Still, she sets out to get what she wants—a little sexcapade of her very own. No commitment. It’s just sex, right?
Parker knows he could never be satisfied with having Stephanie temporarily. But as she continues to tempt him and he finds it harder to resist, he begins to think short-term might be better than nothing at all. Unless he can convince her into more.
Stephanie needs to have some sex. Now. After one to many margaritas she finally has enough liquid courage to ask the one man she has wanted for a very long time. Parker. Her best friend. Her co-worker. Her neighbor. The man she hears having his own very active sex life through their shared bedroom wall on a nightly basis. If anyone can get her out of her sexual slump it’s most definitely him judging by the noises she constantly hears from over there. All she has to do is convince him that their friendship can survive a few “encounters”. That she doesn’t want more than a bit of sexual abandon. Though her heart may be screaming something totally different.
Parker can’t believe what Stephanie is proposing. Friends with benefits isn’t something he has ever said no to before so why is he thinking about doing that now? He would be crazy to say no to the perfect opportunity to live his dream…be with Stephanie. But Parker doesn’t want a wham-bam-thank-you-mam…he wants forever. Convincing Stephanie of that might take a bit more persuading. He is more than willing to accommodate.
Through The Wall is an easy, funny and incredibly hot read. Keri Ford has managed to take a novella and make me care about the characters, which doesn’t normally happen. Generally novellas, because of their length, don’t get me involved in the characters enough for anything to really radiate with me. Ford takes that and throws it right out of the window. I think this may have happened because she takes the time in the beginning to set up a back story and conversation. By the time you get to the set-your-pants-on-fire stuff, you know why the character is the way she is. What makes her tick.
Keri also writes with a completely realistic abandon and will have you giggling at the real world snafu’s that happen to the main characters. She gives new meaning to the phase…”well burn your biscuits” . Read it…you’ll understand, trust me.
The sex….oh my…the sex. Not only did Keri make me giggle but she made me daydream. The sex scenes are hot and sweet at the same time. The love between Stephanie and Parker is clearly felt…and melt your panties off hot. My only complaint is that the story wasn’t long enough. I wanted more of Parker!
I give Through The Wall by Keri Ford 4 stars!
