Synopsis from Goodreads

Asking pro football player Jack Rider to teach me everything he knows about sex might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I’m not so sure I can handle a guy like him. I thought he’d just straight up do me, ridding me of my pesky virginity sooner rather than later. But no, he had his own ideas about bringing me up to speed on sex. His two weeks of slow seduction might just be the death of me, but since he’s the one in charge, I have to play the game his way. Not that I’m not enjoying it. I am. Who wouldn’t, right? I guess I just can’t help but wonder how I’ll ever let another man touch me after him.

This is the second of a three-part series full of mind-blowing sex, featuring a dirty-mouthed football player who knows the score and an inexperienced therapist who needs to learn it. BODY CONTACT is sure to leave readers begging for more. The next installment comes September 2016.

REVIEW 

Please bear in mind this is the second part of a three-part serial and may, therefore, contain spoilers to part one – Hands On.

Embarking on an education of intimacy to help Danielle understand the real life aspects of sexuality before she has to teach a course at the college. I fell in love with Danielle and Jack in Hands On, and only grew to love them more in Body Contact. 

Body Contact finds Jack and Danielle growing closer and not just in the physical sense. They seem to understand each other on an intrinsic level. with all of Danielle’s issues stemming from her foster care and abandonment

Danielle’s issues stemming from her abandonment by her mother and subsequent time in foster care , my heart quite literally hurt for her emotional barriers and the way in which she feels almost unworthy of someone wanting to be part of her life. As if she can easily be discarded, it is due to her emotional damage Danielle is unable to see when someone is reaching out to her.

Jack has to be the sweetest alpha on the planet, the way in which he takes care of Danielle, emotionally as well as physically, only served to make me love him more. While Jack is a big shot sportsman, he truly loves his chosen sport but not the trappings that go alongside it. He has a few issues himself stemming from people either trying to latch onto his fame or undermine him because of his success. He has never come across anyone as selfless as Danielle before; she takes him completely by surprise, and he doesn’t know how to deal with his growing feelings because of his career situation.

I was a little concerned with the inclusion of a ‘special’ club within the plot but should have known Jack’s alpha tendencies would ensure it was perfectly safe for Danielle. The insight the club provided via the voyeuristic look at sexuality and fetishes was very interesting, a completely unique perspective giving a new level of understanding to the psychology behind certain kinks.

As their time together gets closer to ending Jack and Danielle have to deal with the knowledge that the connection between them isn’t purely physical.

What will happen with Jack’s sports career?

Will Jack be able to break through Danielle’s emotional barriers?

I cannot wait to read Full Exposure to find out.
