Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch…
When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself. But their playful conversation turns into a scorching one-night stand that reveals the shy beauty gets off on the idea of being seen, even if she’s a little scared of it, too. And Wolf loves to watch.
In the wake of discovering her fiancé’s infidelity, florist Olivia Foster never expected to find someone who not only understood her wildest, darkest fantasies, but would bring them to life. As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.
But Wolf is a master of getting what he wants—and he’s got his eyes set on her…
Laura Kaye is such a master storyteller that even when I’m outside my comfort zone she makes me feel welcome. Eyes on You gives the reader a look into voyeurism (Wolf) and exhibitionism (Liv) and this is maybe one of the more understandable kinks for readers outside of the BDSM lifestyle. But I wouldn’t call Wolf and Liv’s scenes vanilla in any way because they’re on fire together and their public intimacies at Blasphemy and outside of it…I can’t even *fans face*. Being a novella, things develop quickly but I also believed in Wolf and Liv’s love story because they’re both so open with each other about what they want.
“Something in you calls to something in me so strongly that you make me realize that my life hasn’t been as complete as I thought.”
For me, the best part was seeing a relationship develop for someone who’s not in the lifestyle. The previous two books have characters that meet at Blasphemy but that doesn’t happen here. Liv has had public sex fantasies but she was shamed by her ex-fiancee when she shared them so she’s still working on accepting that she’s normal and it’s ok to want what she wants. Wolf plays a big part in showing her that she has nothing to be ashamed of; he recognizes the submissive in Liv and he introduces her to more BSDM play at Blasphemy that helps her finally feel complete in a way she wasn’t before. Liv was such a sweet heroine with just enough spice to keep her interesting and though Wolf might be a dominant I found him to be a bit of a marshmallow, in all the best ways. The scene towards the end was handled perfectly by Wolf and I love the way he truly adores Liv. This was a quick, but enjoyable addition to the series!
