"Tell me every dirty detail…"
Jo Hutchinson is obsessed with a man she's never seen—only heard. Her late–night calls from the office to the mysterious "Mr. D." grow increasingly intimate, until they finally become full–blown phone sex. Still, Jo doesn't dare meet him. Instead, she embarks on a series of sizzling sexual escapades with other guys, sharing every sweaty moment with Mr. D. afterward, a passion–by–proxy arrangement they both get off on. But even as she's charting brave new naughty worlds, Jo knows that it's all really for Mr. D. Every pleasure she experiences—eagerly, athletically, vocally—is to please him.
Immersed in fantasy, reality just slips away—even the chance at that elusive combination of love and lust. Her new tenant, Patrick, an Irish hunk in geek's clothing, is totally into her. And in her lucid moments, Jo knows she feels the same. Can she tear herself away from her kinky dreamworld long enough to appreciate what's right in front of her? Or has Mr. D. ruined her for real life?

My Thoughts

I really dont know where to start with this review.

Two pages in and the MC is already going down on her ex, which normally wouldn't bother me but the writing here reminded me of bad eighties pizza delivery boy porn, really cheesy and not in a good way.
And that's pretty much the way the whole book read for me unfortunately.
Truth be told, I read the whole book thinking it was going to get better and the sex a little more high class but sadly it just didn't happen. And by the time the MC Jo finally meets up with the elusive Mr.D, their sex scene is completely left out!!

I found the writing to be choppy and disjointed, and basically weak.
The relationships between the characters didn't feel real and had very little substance to them.
And as I have previously stated the sex was very low brow and had a cheap titty magazine quality to it.
If the authors aim was to produce an appealing story with exciting and erotic sex, I'm afraid she failed miserably.
1 star only :[
