Jocelyn Pearson is determined to spend her last month as a twenty-something doing everything she’s too busy or scared to try. Her imagination runs wild and then fixates on Ian Baird. He’ll be working at the Langston Museum for a short stint as a consulting curator. He’s Scottish. He believes sex is fun to be had. He’s the perfect choice for a fling. She only has to get him break his rule about sleeping with co-workers. Seducing a man was on her bucket list…
Ian is no one’s fool and knows exactly what Jocelyn wants—him. If she didn’t work for the Langston Museum, he’d be more than happy to oblige any and every fantasy she desired, but she’s the curator. She’s sweet, inexperienced and well liked by everyone including the museum owner and director. Ian can’t risk losing such an important contact for his consulting business. Not even when everything within in him craves a taste of her.
When Jocelyn sets her sights on him, there’s no way Ian can deny her. They agree their affair will end in thirty days. No emotions, no entanglements, just sex. The closer the end date looms, they start to question if it’s possible to walk away. They’ll either have to come to terms of what they’ve become or stick to their original agreement.
Ok so, I usually tend to avoid novellas, they normally don’t ‘do it’ for me, they leave me unsatisfied! But that didn’t happen with Under His Kilt, no way!
It was everything an erotic novella should be; short, sweet, and insanely sexy. I mean, seriously, Ian – the dude is HOT!
But also, both of the main characters; Ian and Jocelyn, are well-rounded, really likeable people.
Although the story is about an erotic fantasy, it’s a not a fantasy that seems unrealistic or out of reach.
I think a lot of single women (and even a few taken ones!) – at any age, not just Jocelyn’s late 20s – could relate to the situation, a bit bored, needing some excitement. A time stamped ‘friends with benefits’ deal with a hunky co-worker could definitely get the juices flowing for the best of us!
And get the juices flowing he did! Ian is a total ladies man, confident, full of swagger and banter. But, not only is he the cad and the man-candy, he also has his incredibly sweet, thoughtful, romantic moments and I totally fell for him!
Although Under His Kilt is packed full of hot, steamy, sexy moments, you also really get to feel the romance unfold. The situation could happen to anyone and is totally believable every step of the way, that’s part of the reason I enjoyed it so much!
I didn’t know it was possible to feel such wide range of emotions over a short period of time, but Under His Kilt had me hating, loving and feeling sorry for Joce and Ian, as well as sighing and swooning, hot and bothered and panting and fanning myself!
I wouldn’t class this as a ‘hardcore’ erotic read but it is definitely XX rated and isn’t for anyone even slightly prudish!
4.5 stars from me, and I will definitely be looking out for more of Melissa’s work in the future!
