Erotically Delicious Story of Growth and Struggle
Gale Stanley uses her talent as a writer to brilliantly describe a young woman’s upbringing under strict parents, her abuse by a counselor who was mandated to help her and then into her womanhood where she struggles with issues of physical, emotional and romantic desire against a developed backdrop of mistrust. She tries to internalize her needs for fear of being mistreated again. She never expected to meet two men that would help her shed the warm comfort of her cocoon and blossom into the beautiful butterfly she protects form the world.
Hummm, there is great sex, but more than that there is a humanity of struggle to which we can all identify in one way or another and the profound struggle and strength it requires to overcome the shackles of our past. Ms Stanley writes warm, challenged characters who develop and grow through their strife. This was indeed a great sexy story, but so intensely much more. If you have never read Ms Stanley, you will fast become a fan addicted to her talent as a wordsmith to spin an erotically delicious, yet believable, story of growth and struggle—a coming into oneself story any one of us could have lived. I loved it and highly recommend it.
