Juicy, smutty, and full of feels, Explicit was an enthralling read from start to finish.
I've have always been a fan of Roxy Sloane's books. She knows how to write. She does it well. And her stories are not only nuclear in steaminess, they are down right addicting. I have never come across a novel from this author that I haven't loved. Explicit was no different! I was hooked from the first page and found it almost IMPOSSIBLE to put down.
Ellie--our female lead--is my kind of girl. I have the BIGGEST girl crush on her. Not only does she love books, but she's smart and logical, not overly dramatic. She's a sensible, sexy woman with a heart of pure gold that I just connected to in every way. When she had a thought, I agreed. When she felt something, I felt it to. She was a kindred spirit in a way, and I just found her to be the most perfect female heroine.
Jackson Ford is a temperamental, moody, and utterly sexy writer. At first I wasn't sure what to think of him other than he was giving me some serious IVG'S (Involuntary Vaginal Clenches). The man can make you feel weak-kneed and pissed off at the same time. He can take you from frustrated to completely hot and ready in a blink of an eye. He is maddening yet enticing. I wanted to hit him as much as I wanted to snuggle into his arms and let him own me. I both loved and hated the way he was with Ellie at times. I could tell he was battling himself when it came to this woman. This woman who challenged him, who opened his eyes and heart again after being so broken.
Together Jackson and Ellie make the PERFECT team. They are not only kick butt crafting books together but in the bedroom they are a cataclysmic combination. The heat, chemistry, and emotional connection are palpable right from the start! God, these two gave me chills and then they gave my chills, chills. I seriously don't know how anyone could NOT love this couple. They left me breathless.
Overall, Explicit was one intoxicating ride. The characters had me falling in love, the plot packed a punch that left me gasping in shock and then in breathy "awwwww". It's a read I highly recommended. Another winner from the über talented Roxy Sloane, a fave author of mine.
Roxy Sloane is a romance junkie with a dirty mind. She lives in Los Angeles with her hot ex-military hubby and her two kids. She loves writing sexy, complex stories about pushing the boundaries and risking it all.
