“Looking Inside” by Beth Kery is a deliciously steamy story that reminds us of the importance of living each day to its fullest. It is remarkable to reconcile the self-effacing and careful woman with the hedonistic vixen who sets out to grab the attention of wildly successful Trey Riordan in an unlikely setting. I love the contrast between Eleanor’s past persona and her present, even as I sympathize for the events that have brought her to this point. The gradual stoking of the incandescent fire that will burn between the two main characters is entrancing, and even though some of escapades are a little startling to me in light of her ostensible persona, I can understand the premise of becoming brave for that one special person. I thought that there was a little awkwardness given the emphasis Trey put on honesty and expected a much more significant repercussion but I still enjoyed watching this relationship blossom. I thought this was a lovely addition to this author’s works, and it reaffirms my admiration of her ability to combine heat and emotion in a compelling story.
This erotic romance follows librarian Eleanor Briggs as she finds the courage to release the sensual woman inside in order to seduce the man who has captured her imagination and her libido. Trey Riordan has become used to women falling at his feet and recent events have made him look for a more meaningful relationship, but his self-imposed isolation is challenged by a woman who seems to know more about him than he is comfortable with. Each of them must step outside their comfort zone, but the payoff may far exceed the risks if they can muster the courage to be vulnerable.
The New York Times bestselling author who brought you Glow, Glimmer, and The Affair is back with a new novel that will have you leaving the curtains open.
