Book Review - One Final Attempt by Emma Hillman

One Final Attempt

Simon said some really hurtful things to his wife, and now she won’t forgive him. She’s even asking for a divorce. A divorce! She won’t talk to him, so he can’t even apologize properly. So, what’s a husband to do?

Reese wakes up the next day to find herself handcuffed to the bed. She has no choice but to listen to him.

Intent on proving to her that he really does love her and her curves, Simon pulls out all the stops. But will it be enough to capture his wife’s heart yet again?

My Thoughts:

I won this book on a comment contest at Coffee Fueled Erotica, but it's not the first I've read from this talented author! I love Emma Hillman's Curve Happy series. It's so refreshing to read about voluptuous women having great sex.

Of course, that's not how things start out.

Let's face it, marriage is never a walk in the park. Once the romance is gone, life becomes very ordinary and routine, we tend to take our partners for granted. That's exactly what Simon does. When a little fight between him and his wife Reese blows up out of proportion, things are said that may never be taken back.

Just like in real life, it's the small thing that become the straw that breaks the camels back. Now Reese wants a divorce!

Simon's not letting go without a fight and he plans to use every weapon in his arsenal to win her back. He'll prove to his wife that he not only loves every inch of her curvaceous body, but he also adores her for all she's done in their relationship.

She handles their fight and resolution beautifully, mixing steamy sex with tender romantic gestures. I love Emma's use of flashbacks as well to show us the important progression in their relationship and why Simon calls on specific knowledge of his wife's "likes" as he quests to win back his her affection.

This story is a perfect "warm up" before bed. It will make you want to grab your significant other and have a little makeup sex of your own.

I can't wait to read more from Emma Hillman!
