Now, how to tell Grant? I feel as if I’m in the middle of a transition; a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. I’m not quite ready to fly, but I want to break out of this cocoon. The sex goddess within me has been awakened. I have daily thoughts of making love to Grant. I find myself thinking of ways to sexually surprise him or trying to think of what we can do that will be exciting, even at work. I think of what I can buy to wear under winter outfits that will drive him crazy as we sit at the kids’ games or at dinner.
Yet with all that going on in my head, I’m still too shy to tell him it’s there. I want to break that habit. I am almost forty years old, and I have been married for twenty years. There’s nothing to hide from him; this is it, and this is us! It’s official. I am breaking free of my cocoon and flying like the beautiful butterfly I know I can be. 
I make some calls and arrange for the kids to spend Saturday night away from home. I make reservations at Ruby Reds, a historic steak house, in New Orleans. This place is a small hole in the wall with the best steaks around. I requested a booth so we would be able to sit very close without others hearing our conversation. They also have long white tablecloths. Yep, no one can see what's going on under the table.

Sunny's Review:
This book was hard for me. I am that person that thinks certain things are black and white, there is no grey. This book hit the "grey" area. Now, having said that, this book will probably be very enjoyable to people that aren't me.
 
I like that Shelby was willing to change and do what she felt like she needed to do for herself. It was a little bit interesting to watch the feelings and emotions that the characters felt while going through the changes. I think that Monica May did an amazing job of making you feel what the characters were feeling.
 
I am giving this book 4 stars out of 5. You don't have to read this one before Hidden but I would recommend it.

The sun shines through the curtains while I watch the rays dance on her face. I have not slept yet since getting back from Mississippi. My adrenaline is through the roof, and the thought of losing her has me so worked up I don’t want to take my eyes off her. 

The events from last night play over and over in my mind. After getting home, I had bathed her and checked over her body again to ensure he didn’t touch her. I knew from training not to ask her questions right away and that fucking killed me. I wanted to know if he had touched what was mine. Did he put his filthy hands where she didn’t want him to? Once I had her cleaned up and wrapped tightly in my arms lying in bed, she had whispered to me, “He put his hands and mouth on me, but he didn’t get a chance to do what he wanted to me, Jackson.”

“Shh, it’s okay, babe, we don’t need to go over this now.” 

Turning in my arms, she kissed my tattoo. “I just want to let you know I’m still yours and he didn’t …” 

I put my finger on her lips. “It doesn’t matter what he did. I love you no matter what.” 

She kissed my finger, sucking it into her mouth and releasing when I growled, “Then make love to me, Jackson, I need to feel you still want me. That his hands on me don’t matter because I didn’t want them there.”

Sunny's Review:
I really love the guys in this book. You have Parke who is just straight up honest with Samantha, well kind of. Then you have Jackson who is basically a Knight in Shining Armor. He was protective of Sunny from day 1. I liked the girls too. Samantha is unapologetic about her life and does what she wants. I love it and I wish I was a little bit more like that.
 
At first reading the synopsis I was mad that one of the characters was named Sunny. I have yet to figure out why my name is associated with strippers or hookers in most books. So I was not planning on liking Sunny. Now, after reading it, I liked Sunny. I like the reason for her name.
 
This book has a pretty good storyline and again I liked the characters. I would recommend this book. You have romance with a little bit of drama. 
 
I am giving this book 4 stars! Go get it!
