I’m going. Going to New York City to be with gorgeous, mysterious, rock star Chase Delany seemed like a crazy dream, a fantasy come true. The bright lights and music, and his tight, sexy leather pants called to me… and I answered. Chase might want more and I just might give it to him, if I could only forget what I started with Jeff back in Detroit.
I thought I had my love life all figured out, I thought I knew what I wanted, and then things went and changed on me all over again…
I have to admit, after finishing the story of Chase and Jamie (Rock Stars Do It series), I think I can appreciate much more this story, because now I can see the difference between what Chase had with Anna and what he had with Jamie. The former can’t come anywhere near the latter.
I still don’t like the plot of this story, and strongly dislike Anna’s decision to come to Chase for this interlude, but as for the depiction of this kind of erotica – namely fiery chemistry, but no real romance – Big Girls Do It Wilder has its raison d’étre.
My Review – 11/06/2013
Anna arrives in New York to meet Chase. After some “Chase-chatter”, they do it like bunnies. Wait. Not after, but during. They actually start it in the taxi from the airport.
I don’t like that Anna behaves like a cat in heat, and simply can’t control herself. Literally: anywhere, anytime.
They share a fantastic natural chemistry, and are obviously having a good time. It starts to get boring, actually. Endless sex games at home alter with quickies in public. The longer erotic scenes, well, are excruciatingly boring and repetitive, and really test your patience. I prefer the quickies: first, they are quick, second, they are extremely steamy and fun.
At times Anna is doing some thinking, but not much. They have no time to talk in the intervals between concerts, parties, recording, and having sex. Besides, Anna doesn’t want to talk because she needs to think it over first.
Of course she feels that something is wrong…
Something twinged in my heart, a brief but sharp pang of some emotion I didn’t recognize. I didn’t like it, didn’t want to categorize it, and I pushed it away.
Don’t get me wrong, I like erotic stories even with not much plot or events, but I do want some emotional background, and in general, I love romance. I couldn’t find either of them here.
And there were parts where my brows arched high, really high:
*Mild spoiler alert!*
By the time we got back to Chase’s place, I was too tired to do anything but fall asleep. Chase, bless his sweet heart, curled up behind me and let me sleep. My last thought, before succumbing to sleep, was that I’d have to reward him later.
– What the hell is that? She thinks that she is allowed to sleep only after she had made him totally satisfied?
Nothing mattered. Only him, only me, only us together.
– At least, when they were naked, and groupies were nowhere in sight.
Walls and defenses and worries melted away, futures and pasts and choices had no meaning.
– See? How easy it is! All you have to do is to stay naked, and the worries will never be back.
Then one night suddenly poor, poor Chase finds himself in an alley in back of the bar, in ambiguous situation.
*Spoiler* Highlight to read! Anna storms away, in tears. Chase runs after the cab with tear-blurred eyes. Seriously. It’s almost dramatic. Even the driver pities him. But not Anna. She flies back to Detroit, crying all the way.
An awful and predictable end (?) of a superficial and sexual-based relationship.
Otherwise, if the author’s aim was to make the reader disapprove Anna and Chase’s affair, she has done a good job. Except, I was already on Team Jeff.
Two stars for the quickies, plus a half star after reading Rock Stars Do It series.
