I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

What a delightful story! I loved it. The characters were wonderful. I fell in love with them especially Otto and Gertrude. Lou meets Al at the bar. Both decide they do not want to talk about work when together. For Lou she just wants to get away from the downward spiral of her life. For Al he figures he won't be in town long so why spoil their time together. Lou's co-workers and friends, Sue and Harley, are interesting and a little light diversion along the way. Al's co-worker John becomes his friend and confidant as he learns his role in Lou's loss. There is even a hiss-worthy villain in Devlin and not just because he seemingly cheated on Lou.

I could not put this book down. I read it in one sitting it was so good. I laughed. I cried. I fell in love. This is a keeper.
