Are you just going to stand there and watch?
Eleanor Briggs just can’t help herself. Every night, the sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she’ll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him…
Or are you going to join in?
Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible. That is until a simple night of reading at a local coffee shop becomes something far steamier when a beautiful brunette comes by and leaves a note telling him to look out his bedroom window at midnight. But when the time comes, neither of them will be truly ready for what follows…
Worldbuilding: I liked the museum setting mixing with the entrepreneurial dynamic world.
Characters: Eleanor was adorable. She was a bit of a nerd, but also had a daring side which manifested best when with Trey, ofc. Eleanor’s family and her suffering made her feel like a well-fleshed-out character, a real, authentic person. She had doubts, desires, concerns, and creative ideas, and was a delight to read about.
Trey was very cool, because he seemed like he’s the alpha-male-hottie, kind of bad boy vibe and player, but when around Eleanor he came across as a successful, considerate guy and a good man. Maybe a bit of a victim of his own success, in a way – I mean his dating life here particularly.
They were a very hot couple, with explosive chemistry and I liked their approach to getting together and staying that way xD
Plot: The romance was a very fun mix of a rapid hookup turning into a slow-burn-feel kind of romance. I liked the tempo of events, though there was a bit of drama thrown in at the end there that didn’t feel like it added much to the story, imo. But it didn’t take away anything, and the result was happy ending anyway, hehe.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, his/her POV. Liked the banter and the writing style was vivid and entertaining.
Curb Appeal: Cool cover, hooking blurb – impulsive buy material for my (admittedly rare) Contemporary Romance cravings.
I had a great time reading Looking Inside. I recommend it to fans of hot Contemporary Romance, and particularly to fans of voyeurism stories – there’s a strong element of that here. It’s fun, it’s hot, and it’s available – I say come and get it, hehe!
