A Single Glance by W. Winters
February 11, 2019
Dear Mr. Hemingway,
Love is in the air this Valentine’s week!!!!!! Nothing screams Valentine’s Day more than a romance novel. You know, the paperback ones often found in grocery stores checkouts or on your Kindle for $2.99. Through the years, so many of us have plowed through these romantic delights often referred to as smutty or trashy romance novels. Call them what you will, but know that these books make up a billion-dollar industry. I have an eclectic taste in reading. With the exception of a few topics that I find unsettling, I am game for reading anything. From time to time, I like to add a little spice to my reading life and I throw in a provocative romance novel. Today I am going to share with you A Single Glance by USA Today bestselling author, W. Winters. It has it all. A hot and dangerous man, a gorgeous and troubled girl, a mystery to be solved, and a romance that is literally on fire. Here we go!
A Single Glance follows Bethany Fawn, a single nurse who is grieving the recent murder of her sister. Distraught over her sister’s drug use and sudden death, Bethany begins to investigate her death. That is when she meets Jase Cross, owner of the Red Room Club. Jase discovers that Bethany’s sister left behind a three hundred thousand dollar debt to some dangerous people. Jase decides it’s in everyone’s best interest to pay this debt for Bethany under the condition that she agrees to his terms in a written contract. After the contract is signed, Bethany and Jase begin their sultry adventure together.
So now that you have the basics, let me start by saying that Jase Cross is the ultimate “bad boy”. Powerful, demanding, strong and extremely easy on the eyes (I mean, did you see the cover of the book?). Bethany is beautiful and strong in her own right. She may come off initially as scared and innocent, but trust me…..she has her own agenda with Jase. The contract between them involves the exchange of information that is helpful to both of them. It also involves some bedroom behavior that is unrestrained and explosive. Whips and chains are a thing of the past. Knives, fire (I actually learned a few things reading this) and slow sexual torture seems to be the winning combination in this modern day erotic story. Jase and Bethany’s relationship doesn’t play out like an old school Danielle Steel novel. It is fueled by sexually arousing and explicit behavior that will have you shifting in your seat. Winters is uninhibited when writing these scenes. She gives it to you, and gives it to you straight. What I really enjoyed most of all is that in addition to all the romping around, there is a mystery to be solved. Though Jase and Bethany’s relationship is based on using one another, there is a glimmer of hope that they could actually fall in love.
I had a blast reading A Single Glance by W. Winters. Her writing is risque and bold. Her language is colorful and doesn’t skimp on any of the juicy details. You will discover early on that Jase and Bethany are quite the lovable characters. You will be yearning for them long after you finish the last page. Books are not one size fits all. If extreme sexual scenarios are triggers for you, by all means put this book aside. However, if you are game, expand your reading boundaries. Instead of overthinking, have a little fun and give this bad boy a go. Whether you are 27 or 96 years old, there is something thrilling for everyone in this book. Forget about curling up under a blanket by the fire while reading this. This story is way too hot for those comforts. Instead, turn up the A.C., pour yourself a glass of something fabulous and enjoy your time with Bethany and Jase.
Happy Steamy Reading! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day this week! Until next time Mr. H.
