From the hottest writers in Australia comes a scintillating new series. Enter the world of Sydney’s elite, and find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country…
Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?
Rugged, athletic, and absolutely enormous, Mud is aggressive on the rugby field and off. It takes a special kind of woman to tame the beast and take on all that man, but Jorja has never been anything less than exceptional.
But something is going on inside her warrior man, something that she can’t see or reach or touch. She has always been the one able to get through and bring him down, so why does she feel like everything is slipping away?
Housewife number two for this rainy Friday is Lexxie Couper’s Jorja. I’ve always known Lexxie can write the hot stuff, but this sizzling little tidbit had the heat fairly leaping from the page!
Now for my thoughts on Jorja:
You know it is the mark of a very talented erotic writer, when they can create an atmosphere of intense, almost unbearably hot sexual attraction between the hero and heroine – without them actually engaging in rampant sexytimes straight away. That is exactly what Lexxie has managed to do with Jorja and her ultra-alpha man, Daniel.
There are sexytimes, oh yes there are!! However, the chemistry between Jorja and Daniel is so electric and incendiary, that mere looks and words create heat.
I love that Jorja has complete trust in Daniel, and that she is willing and able to be that person who softens him. The overtly masculine, testosterone-fuelled world he lives and breathes has given Daniel a rough, brutal edge, however with Jorja’s strength and love at his side, that is softened and reined in.
This chemistry and the hot intimacy, coupled with a believable back story and Lexxie’s unique voice, have created one great erotic novella. Loved how it tied up at the end, too.
