Bell, Serena. Loveswept: Random. Nov. 2018. 211p. ebk. ISBN 9780425284308. $4.99. EROTICA
Elle Dunning, aspiring writer and mother of Madden, is recently divorced and gobsmacked by the audacity of her ex-husband to invite her to his wedding eight weeks after their split. She's been trying to process her feelings and get over her ex in myriad ways, one of which included an incredibly hot one-night stand with a broody stranger at a bar. She is shocked to discover that this stranger is not only her new next-door neighbor but the father of her son's new best friend Jonah. Sawyer Paulson hadn't forgotten Elle or the incredible night they'd shared, but he hasn't been able to let any woman in emotionally since the death of his wife two years ago. Still, their proximity ramps up the undeniable attraction between them, complicating their intentions to remain wholesome, platonic neighbors. Bell (Hold on Tight) deftly crafts a lust-to-love tale with unconventional elements; Elle and Sawyer's trysts take place as they navigate single parenthood and incredible sorrow. Readers will be rooting for the pair as they find deliciously naughty ways of reclaiming their desire.
VERDICT An enjoyable hybrid of sugar and spice for those seeking erotica with substance. Recommended.
