Review: No Reservations by Lilly Cain

No Reservations (Bad Girls Know, #1)
Lilly Cain
10/29/12 Carina Press (ebook)
Synopsis: Travis Morgan is thrilled to encounter the one woman who's never failed to get his blood pumping. Seeing Alicia Davis again brings it all back: their fierce academic rivalry, and the fact that he never followed through on his erotic fantasies about her.

Alicia can't resist Travis's smoldering sensuality—or the opportunity to finally bed the man who starred in so many of her lustful daydreams in college. Unable to avoid the temptation to best Travis one more time, Alicia plans to submit to one night of pure pleasure and then leave Travis empty-handed and craving more.

When Travis wakes up and realizes Alicia's played him, the gloves are off, and the game heats up as they each try to emerge on top—by whatever means necessary...


Review: I read this short story/novella in a day, and had to write my review right away because I know tomorrow I'll have forgotten what I read. And that pretty much sums it up for me. It was certainly pleasant, but nothing outstanding (good or bad). I think that's because it is about 90% sex and while that is smoking hot and at times unusual and varied, it's not enough for me in a book. There was such great potential in Alicia and Travis' relationship - I loved the idea of a woman (possibly unintentionally) scorned seeking out revenge, but it wasn't developed enough. A good read for someone looking for a quick, hot novella and not much else.

No Reservations: 3/5 stars
Audience Rating: R

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.
