Eighteen-year-old Liv may be a virgin, but she knows what she wants. Ex-Marine David, who is nursing scars from the wound that ended his military career, is just the man to make her a woman. Boys her own age bore Liv, and the fact that he's 16 years older just means he'll have more experience. For David, Liv is temptation itself, but he can't betray his friend by sleeping with his daughter. He has honorable intentions until Liv tells him the one thing guaranteed to smash his self-control. She wants to have David's baby....
The story is about Liv, a virgin & sexual novice, seducing David, a recently retired, injured marine who is 16 years her senior. Unlike other stories of the same ilk, Liv’s thinking seemed a bit more mature and not only about sex. And words of love weren’t tossed around quickly and easily, though their HEA was speedy.
I liked that David & Liv weren’t perfect physical specimens of humanity, and I liked that the story dealt with how Liv’s dad would likely react to his close friend being with his daughter. The setup of the story was also plausible, and sex wasn’t so easy or immediately. Liv had to work at seducing David, and David wasn’t led totally by his penis nor did he ignore what others, especially Liv’s dad, would think.
The one downside is that the author was less capable at writing a sexy and erotic description of the sex act, once it occurred. On the otherhand, the author did a great job of writing sexy material when describing the sexual desire of Liv and David, before they actually had sex together. Talking about Liv’s cervix and “ripe eggs” and David’s corona during sex or as part of the description was a bit too technical & detracted from any sexiness.
The story has an epilogue at 7 months later, so it was great to hear what happened after the sex.
