A filthy proposition.
Too much money to say no.
One dirty night in a stranger’s bed.
While my husband watches.
A full-length contemporary romance novel.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“One Too Many” for me was such an interesting and diverse read.
Whilst not my favourite of Jade’s books I still enjoyed and appreciated this very much.
This was certainly a very different read from the norm and I think that is what I found so intriguing about this.
The emotions explored here were very easy to get lost in and I found that this did manage to convey to me the deep sentiment that comes from knowing your partner inside out.
Perhaps not as much so in the beginning, But certainly later when Bret and Grace started to reconnect within there relationship.
Also, a side effect brought forth unwittingly by Thomas.
So what did I love about “One Too Many”
Well Brett and Grace’s marriage, it was like a warm welcoming hug.
There closeness and acceptance of each other but also that fact that they were flawed normal individuals, Was so refreshing to behold.
There eventual affection and support towards Thomas was also extremely endearing.
I loved that they had the ability to just accept things at face value. But also, the ability to question things when it was actually needed, does that even make sense.
The fact that this book and the story was just so normal, no tricks or gimmicks just folks trying to live there lives the best way they can, I loved that about “One Too Many”.
And OMG can I just say those bedroom antics,
HOT HOT HOT!!!!
Fanning myself here big style girls.
Joking aside the bedroom scenes here were amazing and compelling, so well written, It wasn’t just sex you could actually feel the tenderness and sentiment and also the playfulness behind the filth and corruption.
There was also perhaps a deeper message to convey here, a moral one, is it actually worth the risk to destroy something so precious as the love and trust in a union over money.
Could one night actually destroy a lifetime of affection and trust.
finally, I really liked how this jumped from each characters POV.
I felt much closer to all three from getting to play in each of their heads for a short time.
What did I have slight issues with, well it’s actually a short list and these are just my own personal observations.
So here you are,
I wasn’t really a mega fan of the ending.
(view spoiler)[the whole Polly thing, well I’m not too sure about that.
We didn’t really get to know Polly and I do understand she was like Thomas’s conscience and all.
But she just felt a tad unnecessary and like second best, at least that’s the impression I got from this, maybe that’s just me.
I would really like to know what actually occurs next for these two, this just felt a bit unresolved overall.
I’m actually hoping Thomas might get his own short novella maybe just to clarify and polish things off. (hide spoiler)]
So that’s it from me, this is a fabulously unusual read that you really should give a chance too.
I don’t think you’ll regret it.
