Savannah Jensen’s well-planned life offers everything a woman could want except a driving passion to override self-imposed rules. At twenty-nine, the clock isn’t screaming, but it has begun to tick loudly, so when a friend convinces her to attend a bridal blow-out sale, she’s not exactly excited about the reminder that she is alone, especially when a gorgeous man sweeps her into a sensual dance that threatens everything she has ever believed in.
Gavin Ferguson doesn’t believe love exists, but when he picks up the tuxedos for his sister’s wedding, fate, lust, and the family curse throw him a curve. Suddenly, he longs to convince the beautiful woman in ivory that she should be his—at least until he can sate the sexual fire she ignites. Yet, distrust born of disappointment and betrayal insists he protect his heart from the lie of perpetual happiness shining in her eyes.
Once Savannah and Gavin dance, raw desire, too hot to ignore, sweeps them toward insanity with nothing to cling to except sweet restraint.
Sweet Restraint is a sweet read! This is a follow up book to Sweet Temptation.
Savannah is a determined, motivated strong willed woman. Once a decision is made, she sticks to it. She made a choice that she would stay a virgin until marriage. This does not mean there aren’t any really hot sexy moments in this book, there are. It simply means the intimacy is just a little more inventive. I like that aspect. It’s different from other books out there. I think with the sexual build up between both Gavin and Savannah, it makes their first time together much more explosive.
Gavin is not a believer in love at first sight or fate. His Dad and Step-mother have not been great role models in the kid, white picket fence, love and marriage scenario. Once he allows Savannah to be in his life everything he has always said he wanted is questioned. He knows that he can’t give his love to her, but he does want her in his life. He asks her to marry him as part of a business arrangement. They both want children and a family. In his mind it’s perfect.
As the passion between these two ignite. It becomes much more difficult for them to convince themselves that there are no feeling involved in their relationship.
They learn that they can’t base their happiness and their future on other people’s bad choices from the past. They learn that communication and trust is vital in a marriage. They learn that true love does exist.
I thought the story line at times was a little unbelievable. Just remember that this is a book about fate, love, and proof that there can be that magical spark between two strangers that unite them instantly. Ms. Dale did a great job writing a unique and creative erotic story that is certainly worth a read.
