In Too Deep (Tori Carrington) – Chapter Two

So far, Alannah has come back and Ben told her that they needed to talk.

On the way to Ben, Alannah had already feared that this would be the time that he’d say no.

She had seen it in his eyes the last time she’d left. [It always amazes me what people see in the eyes of other people. Maybe I’m just really a sucker when it comes to facial expressions, let alone ocal expressions, but what I see in other people’s faces are emotions and not something like, “you know, this has been fun for a while, but really, it can’t go on like this.”] That expression that said more than words could, but if the words could be spoken, they would have ended their long-standing spring fling forever. [bzzz-huh? I take it that he just broke up with you through his eyes and yet you still come back?] For the past 11 months she’d worried that he might find the woman who could give him what he wanted, what he needed. That elusive something that she could not provide: permanence, marriage, family. [Oh, very elusive: Didn’t you just nail it in three words?]

So, to avoid being rejected right away, because she really, really likes Ben and wants to know that he likes her, too, Alannah has waited till nightfall, undressed, crawled into Ben’s bed and hoped that his dick would do his thinking for him. [By the way, I find this a deeply disconcerting practice. I mean, okay, they’ve apparently established that it’s okay in their relationship to do that, still… for me, this is not necessarily the best way to go about things. Especially if you think that you’d get kicked out otherwise.]

In Too Deep (Tori Carrington) – Chapter One

***Trigger Warning***

Okay, let’s start right away with the magnificence that is the first sentence:

She was back. Hot, fleecy-soft, and magnificently naked in his bed.

When somebody’s fleecy, I immediately imagine a pelt. A very nice, very soft pelt, but a pelt nevertheless. I guess I have to compliment Tori for not resorting to the classic, a little clichéd “silky”.

But then again, who am I to say that she, whoever she is, doesn’t have a pelt?

In Too Deep (Tori Carrington)

In Too Deep is #24 in Harlequin’s Mini Series. It’s available here. You can also read it here, but I don’t know how legal that is.

The Description on Amazon

The book is rather short, as is the description:

Alannah has returned to Ben’s bed, just in time for spring. Can he convince her to stay for good this time, or will she break his heart again?

Just a small sidenote

I read the first sentence of this little gem and decided that I had to post it here. Seriously, people…

She was back. Hot, fleecy-soft, and magnificently naked in his bed.

Also, I’m reading this in pdf format and it has like 21 pages. And 8 chapters… Something this long probably doesn’t need any chapters at all, let alone 8…

Plus, everytime I read the name Alannah, I have to think about this one song… do you know it?

I’ve no idea what it means, but it’s a little disconcerting.
