When good girls go bad, very, very bad…
The minute Carrie meets tattooed, bad-boy bartender Dallon, her decision is made. He’s the one, her ticket to freedom and a new, independent life. She’s tired of dictates and zero dates and following the path laid out before her by her well-meaning-but-completely-out-of touch-with-her-reality religious parents.
Dallon sees the buttoned-up, full-of-curves woman outside the grocery store and feels the flames of hell licking at his heels. When she asks him for directions to the large, nearby university where she’s starting work, his gut-twisting lust for her doesn’t diminish, but those flames start to singe his tough-as-nails hide.
With Dallon’s promise of not sleeping with anyone associated with the university his father is the dean of about to go up in smoke, Carrie takes the first exit off the Heavenly Highway straight onto Sin Street. She wants Dallon to teach her all the things a good girl should never know, and she won’t take Hell no for an answer.
Reader Advisory: What Dallon does with a beer bottle may be illegal in forty-eight out of fifty states…and at least two territories.I obtained the above information from Ms. Lissa's website -->> here.
For those of you that know me and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...
This is definitely a book that will get you blood boiling the minute you start reading it. From the first to the last page, you will squirm, you will sweat, you will beg, you will be puddy in Dallon's hand. Which might not be a bad thing. Ms. Lissa will make you look at household items in a completely different light. Intrigued yet??
The title suits this story to a freaking tee. When you think of carnal, what do you think of? All things naughty, all things... sexual. And when you think of ecstasy... Oh I saw a glitter light up in those eyes and a blush creep to your checks. Oh yeah, when you think of that word, your mind goes into over drive. Coupled with naughty, sexual and ecstasy, that about wraps up this story. Ms. Lissa gives us two characters who will make your fingers burn to the last page to find out what happens to them. You immediately see the sparks fly, the hard-ons happen and you will hear... Oh wait... you must read the story to know about those parts. And believe me, Ms. Lissa was not shy about what she gave you in this story.
Now with this story, I have to say that one thing struck a cord with me and that was Carrie was kinda too innocent for a thirty year woman. Carrie lived a very sheltered life with her very strict and religious parents. But then I sat and thought about people I actually know. Families I know, have seen on tv or have heard about. I mean, I do not put anything past anyone these days. So, she is a believable character, but her innocence was a little worrisome for me. Hell, I wanted to take her myself and kinda protect her. At the same time wanted to hold her hand and give her the best damn experiences I could. So, I know where Dallon was coming from when he discovered the hidden treasures locked within Carrie. And believe me, Dallon teaches Carrie some new array of tricks. Some readers might not like his ideas of what turns him on... but you have to admit that ~ that is a man. Some men don't think conventional toys are good enough. He is a walking hard-on who thinks about having sex, or at least getting a blow job every chance he can. Blushing or giggling, I will take that to mean you are thinking of the men you know right now and Dallon is one of those men you will want to know.
This story is truly a hot read. I read it in one night and had to take a cold shower after. Okay... maybe I was not alone, Dallon was there, LMBO!!! Okay okay, in my dreams ~ maybe. But believe me after you read this story, you will want to visit this bar! Hell, I want to move to where this bar is located at... I mean the bar is owned by three.... not one... not two... three hellva walking, talking, sexy as men!!! Dallon finds Carrie and together they discover all things in Carnal Ecstasy! So... go find out what Ecstasy they engage in!!! Have a fan handy!
""You have to trust in yourself, Carrie. You have to believe in yourself, in who you want to be, in who you already are. You have the right to live your life the way you want. They can't dictate your steps anymore. And if last night and today have done anything, I hope you've learned you can stand on your own, make the choices that will make you happy and that you're not all by yourself." He hadn't planned on getting so deeply involved with her, especially when drama was not all his thing. He had wanted a good time, a hot time between the sheets, and he'd had it, intended to have more of it. He intended to have a lot more than that though. She was special. And his bachelorhood was fucked.""
