Birthday Wishes Review

Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.
But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?
Birthday Wishes is Book 1 in The List Series is intended for an adult audience only and contains mature themes, including graphic and explicit sex.

~Jodie Rae's Review~
I rated Birthday Wishes by Braxton Cole Four Leaves! This book is a very sexy, quick read. The story is about Mari, who meets Luca on an adult website on the day of her birthday. Mari is only interested in one thing with Luca - sex, with no strings attached. Mari and Luca make a "sexual fantasy list" and plan on marking each fantasy off of the list.
Mari is an independent woman, and Luca is a mouthwatering, sweet, domineering man. I enjoyed Mari and Luca's story and wished it didn't have to end so soon. The storyline was great, but I still had this feeling like something was missing. The book was filled with steamy, sex scenes. Just enough to tease you ;-) I wish we could have had more time to get to know the characters. In life, women are the ones who strive to move a relationship to the next level, but in Birthday Wishes, it's the man who makes that move. This made my heart melt a little bit more for Luca. I cannot wait to find out happens in All Wrapped Up (The List #2) for Mari and Luca!

Look for my review of All Wrapped Up on July 17 when Falling In Fall hosts a blog stop for The Book Enthusiast Promotions.
