No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety.

Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.

One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?

The fear of falling is shared by many. Taking that first step requires trust and faith in the equipment you're in, in the person you're with, or both.

Heath and Ally's story starts with a bang. Literally. The sex is hot, intense, wild, and freeing. But it isn't enough for either of them. Their initial promise of first names only and no other information is broken as their thoughts and longings for one another intensify. A chance run-in brings their once separated worlds together and, suddenly, New York City isn't so big anymore.

I liked this story more than Logan. The intensity of Heath and Ally's connection was heart and soul deep, maybe due in part to the similar way their past relationship with others ended. It doesn't take long for Heath to know that Ally is more than an amazing bed partner. She's everything he could ever want, need, and hope for in a life partner.

The attraction between Heath and Ally is undeniable. Ms. Foster does a great job making that aspect of their relationship front-and-center. But then she builds on it, grows the physical need into an emotional one that overshadows the former. It enables them to fall, though Ally did it with hesitation. But Heath waits patiently with the promise to catch her when she does.

She does, and so does he.

Like Logan, this story moves quickly. Unlike Logan, for whatever reason, the leap from lust to love didn't seem so instant to me. Heath isn't angsty, suspenseful or action packed. It's a simple story about two people who weren't looking for anything yet found everything in each other.
