Travis Morgan is thrilled to encounter the one woman who’s never failed to get his blood pumping. Seeing Alicia Davis again brings it all back: their fierce academic rivalry, and the fact that he never followed through on his erotic fantasies about her.
Alicia can’t resist Travis’s smoldering sensuality–or the opportunity to finally bed the man who starred in so many of her lustful daydreams in college. Unable to avoid the temptation to best Travis one more time, Alicia plans to submit to one night of pure pleasure and then leave Travis empty-handed and craving more.
When Travis wakes up and realizes Alicia’s played him, the gloves are off, and the game heats up as they each try to emerge on top–by whatever means necessary…
The sparks fly between former college rivals Travis Morgan and Alicia Davis in No Reservations. It might be a quick read, but Lilly Cain turns up the heat right from the beginning as Travis and Alicia act on their mutual attraction.
No Reservations has excellent character development and an interesting plot. The fact that they knew one another in college makes the storyline plausible and the sexual tension is high right from their first meeting. Both characters have ulterior motives for hooking up and they bring their emotional baggage from their previous relationships which provides added conflict. Lack of communication becomes a factor at different times throughout the story, but their issues are resolved fairly quickly.
The sex scenes between Alicia and Travis are frequent, varied and erotic. The BDSM aspect is pretty tame, so if you are curious about the genre, No Reservations is a good introduction.
If you are looking for a short but deliciously steamy read, then you should pick up a copy of Lilly Cain’s No Reservations. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment of the Bad Girls Know series.
