Thin Love by Eden Butler

OUT OF 5 STARS

Shameless Recommendation

Marissa Not So PNR Mini Banner This story will have you reaching for tissues, yet smiling through the tears. It will have you gasping with indignation and fury, yet cheering at the end. It will have your heart beating faster during poignant moments and the bedroom scenes. Kona and Keira’s journey from college sweethearts to bitter ex-lovers to second-chance lovers is one worth taking a dozen times over, because there is always some nuance missed in the story and writing. The prose will stun you, sweep you up and make you think, then set you down on your feet again. I will admit to a book hangover after this story, because of all the emotions I was feeling while reading the beginning of their story in college, the heartbreak during and after they part ways, and then their second chance 16 years later as jaded adults.

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding.

Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.

She sacrificed everything for him.

It wasn't enough.

But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been.

Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.

When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.

Excerpt

‰ÛÏWhat‰Ûªs the matter, Wildcat?‰Û Kona lay on top of her, held her hip with his long fingers. ‰ÛÏYou
nervous?‰Û She could only manage a nod and Kona smiled, moving his mouth to her neck, down
her shoulder, kissing lightly. ‰ÛÏWe don‰Ûªt have to do this. I can wait.‰Û
‰ÛÏNo!‰Û She panicked at the thought. He laughed at her excitement and that touch on her hip got
tighter. ‰ÛÏNo,‰Û she said, voice a bit calmer. ‰ÛÏI want you, Kona.‰Û He looked at her, smile gone,
expression relaxed. ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve wanted you for weeks and weeks.‰Û Keira exhaled, moving the hair off
her forehead. ‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs just been a while and you‰Ûªre so‰Û_‰Û She flicked her eyes down then quickly
back up again. ‰ÛÏYou‰Ûªre a lot bigger than I expected.‰Û
‰ÛÏHa, sweetheart, you‰Ûªre good for my ego, but it‰Ûªs just me.‰Û Kona kissed her again, slipping just
the tip of his tongue into her mouth before he pulled away. ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªll be easy with you, Wildcat. I‰Ûªll
be so slow and good, but maybe this will help.‰Û
Kona‰Ûªs hand left her hip, slipped between her thighs easily and he coaxed more wetness from
her, teasing her lips, taking his time to touch her clit. Keira shuddered, held her hand against his
wrist as he continued and Kona took her lead, rubbed once more over her clit before he slipped
two fingers inside her. He‰Ûªd learned her body in the past few weeks and Keira had been grateful
that she didn‰Ûªt have to tell him what she wanted, what felt best. He always seemed to know.
His mouth was warm, tongue eager as he kissed her, as those large fingers curled and his knuckles
touched the spot that sent her mind swimming. He never had to touch her for long, always knew
exactly how to read the lift of her voice, the collection of sounds that gave away just how good
she felt when he touched her. That night was no exception. Just a few sure rubs of his knuckles
against her G-spot and Keira was flying, hips off the mattress as her body chased that orgasm.
‰ÛÏBeautiful. Every time, Wildcat. So beautiful.‰Û Another kiss against her neck, with Keira still
spinning on the crest of her orgasm and Kona slipped inside of her. ‰ÛÏGod‰Û_‰Û Kona moved his
hips slow, barely moved an inch and already Keira felt full, felt she couldn‰Ûªt be stretched any
further. When he slid deeper, she hissed, not from the pain but from how sensitive she already
was. ‰ÛÏYou okay? You want me to stop?‰Û
‰ÛÏNo,‰Û she told him, opening her eyes so he‰Ûªd know she wasn‰Ûªt hurting. ‰ÛÏGod, no, please keep
going. You just fill me up. It‰Ûªs so good, bebe.‰Û
Kona stilled inside her and a small quirk of his mouth told Keira he was pleased. ‰ÛÏThat‰Ûªs the first
time you‰Ûªve ever called me that.‰Û
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªll say it again just to keep that smile on your face.‰Û
Then Keira lifted her legs, wrapped them around Kona‰Ûªs hips and she let herself be filled as he
worked inside her. Everything about Kona was huge; his body, his cock, his voice, his presence
and all of it filled Keira‰Ûªs room as well as her body, moved around them and through them and
she felt high, so high on him, on the sensation of him moving inside of her, his hands on her
breasts, his fingers clasped with hers as he lifted her hands above her head on the pillow and
pinned them there. Sweat pooled over their skin, met together in the twist of their bodies and when Kona stared
down at her, kissed her like her lips would give him breath, Keira shuddered, squeezed against
him. The light was thin and Keira could only make out the outline of his features, the small glint
in his eyes and it was too much, too overwhelming, but she would not run this time, she
wouldn‰Ûªt tell herself she could do without this. Not again. Not anymore. She belonged to him.
Her body, her heart, no matter how beaten and worn it was, belonged to Kona Hale.
Keira squeezed against him again and Kona stilled, stared down at her with a smile that told her
he wanted to control this, lead her. ‰ÛÏDon‰Ûªt squeeze,‰Û he said, pulling her hips up, hitting inside
her deeper. ‰ÛÏIf you open up, baby, go wide for me, relax, I can make you come hard, I can make
it last for you.‰Û A slow thrust, deeper, harder and Keira arched against him, relaxed her inner
muscles even as she throbbed against him. ‰ÛÏPerfect, so perfect.‰Û
This was deeper, freer somehow, letting Kona move them, letting him control the moment and
Keira held onto Kona like he would anchor her, keep her from floating above herself.
‰ÛÏCome for me, baby. Give it to me completely and I‰Ûªll make it so, so good for you. I‰Ûªll take care
of you when you shatter against me.‰Û And Keira listened, guessed that this is what Kona
needed‰ÛÓthat slip of control she gave to him. She let go, pushed out, relinquishing herself, giving
her body to Kona, rather than closing off, pulling in, and the effect was substantial. He moved in
closer, worked faster and Keira let herself open, relax until that heavenly sensation came upon
her, urged on by Kona‰Ûªs strong hands on her hips, his wide dick touching all the way inside her
and when the orgasm came, it mirrored her heart‰ÛÓfree, unyielding, explosive.
‰ÛÏGod‰Û_ ,‰Û Kona said, voice rising higher and higher with each grunt he made, hips slamming into
her hard, fast, faster, and Keira knew he was hitting his crest. Shoulders shaking, hips pumping
faster and faster, Kona released a groan, filling her, throbbing inside her as he came.
Then he pulled his hand from hers and held the back of her neck, stared down at her with his
thumb on her cheek. ‰ÛÏThis is always, Wildcat. You‰Û_ you‰Ûªre my always.‰Û

GENRE

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
