It's time for another RT Read Along — where we ask you to join us in reading a brand new e-serial from one of our favorite authors. This week I continue with part two in Megan Hart's five-part erotic serial Every Part of You, available February 18. This installment there's tons o' sexytimes and hero Elliott wins me over! Giant SPOILER ALERT for anyone who hasn't read parts one or two yet.
Picking up exactly where part one left off, "Resists Me" starts out with Simone dragging Elliott to a goth night club (Simone used to be a bit of a wild child) after she cornered him in their office's lobby and convinced him to go out with her again. She purposely chooses a place that would annoy Elliott, and I'm amazed by how much I can love this heroine. Straight-laced Elliott is not having any of it, and sulks at the bar drinking whiskey while Simone dances her little butt off alone, until some rando dude joins her. Elliott steps in, showing that he does have feelings for Simone — and he can dance! The dancing quickly becomes too much for either of their libidos and they quickly return to Simone's place for sexytimes.
And here's where things get interesting. Elliott obviously has some issues. I mean, up until he met Simone he had been boning random women in his office so, clearly we've got a hero who can't commit and had some intimacy issues. But he likes Simone, and she lays all her cards out on the table, straight up telling Elliott she would like to have sex. There's lots of superbly written foreplay, but Elliott draws the line at intercourse. Another reluctant hero who can't commit. Instead of a traditional finish, he relieves himself all over her. Which, for this erotica reader, is always a nice change of pace. As soon as he's done he up and leaves, and Simone is kind of annoyed but not really bothered because she just had an orgasm and can't be bothered with Elliott's issues right now. Still, she likes Elliott enough to have a talk with him about it at work the next day. She even brings him food!
