This is the first of a series of books ( a total of four have been announced) that follow the life of Dr. Malcom Colson, couples and sex therapist. In this book, we see how he helps Sean and Becky, but we also see the start of his relationship with Ava, a woman he craves and with whom he knows he's walking a slippery slope.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it, it's a great introduction to Malcolm and what makes him tick. He prides himself in his control and how great he is at helping others, but he also discovers his cravings have put him in a vulnerable position. I like this concept: it's different and not exclusively based on the main couple.
I found myself pulled out of the story with the repetition of a certain phrase. This is a very common occurrence in the romance genre, and it happens to a lot of authors. I am just one of those "lucky" readers with a brain that grinds to a halt when that happens.
The writing is straightforward, so don't expect flowery descriptions. However, I don't feel that the writing style detracts from the story, you just need to be prepared for it. All in all, a solid read, and I definitely want to know what happens with Dr. Colson and Ava and how their relationship evolves.
