Ella is in love with her best friend Kade. But her love has not been returned, and when bisexual Kade shows no signs of becoming romantic towards her, she decides to call a halt on her unrequited love and accept an invitation to a celebrated Melbourne sex club.
Kade is distressed when the woman he is beginning to see as more than a friend decides to visit Secrets before he can tell her how he feels. He follows her into the club and witnesses her at play with the enigmatic Anteros, a sexy god-like man who seems to know exactly how to satisfy her innermost cravings. But Anteros also feeds the hidden desires within Kade. How can he admit his feelings for Ella when he's not sure he can commit with his whole heart?
Anteros is one of the erotes, an aspect of Eros and the ancient Greek god of requited and unrequited love. He has heard the call of these would-be lovers and intends to show them that friendship can sometimes be the best place to kick start a lasting romantic relationship.
But love cannot flourish unless it is returned, and how will he convince Kade – a man who occasionally enjoys other men – that he can be true to the woman he loves? What will happen to this couple when the night ends and they return to the real world outside the door of Secrets?
Has one of the gods of love finally taken on a challenge he cannot fulfill?
This was one of the sexiest reads I've had the pleasure of seeing in awhile. Between the stunning sex scenes and the emotional dynamics of the characters, I was hooked. Each individual felt like a real person, with real needs and hang ups, not just a character on paper. I became emotionally invested in the relationship and by the time everyone got their happy ending, I was smiling.
I also liked that though I've read the previous book in the series, I was able to follow along without feeling like I was missing out. Each book works just as well as a stand alone as it does a part of the series. This is very important to me as with my memory issues, I'm not always able to remember important things from previous books and I can become lost. Not so with these.
The end of the book makes it more than evident another book is coming along in the series, and I'll admit it, I squee'd just a little. That makes this a Must Read! ~ D. F. Krieger
