    Is there such a thing as “feel good” erotica? Wait. Scratch that. (tongue in cheek. grinning) What I really meant to say is that Cherrie Lynn’s Rock Me makes you feel good inside. As in warm fuzzy feelings.

    Lynn challenges the current erotic template in such a distinctive way that will have you heading for your eReader and downloading more right after you finished the last book.

    Don't get me wrong, her bad boy/good girl tryst is HAWT but surprising sweet and tasteful. It is also very naughty but in a good way, touching a cord that will expose a readers most heartfelt fantasies and wrapping its tender tale around your heart.

    Her characters Brian Ross and Candace Andrews are the unlikeliest couple and not the atypical template found in erotic romance. The strength of his character, depth of his feelings just telegraph louder than other stories. Brian Ross comes from an affluent family but he went his own way.  There was no way he was going to be molded into a doctor or a lawyer.  Now the black sheep of the family, he owns his own tattoo parlour. He has his life under control. He even quit smoking. But when his ex-girlfriend’s cousin Candace waltzes into his ink shop, nothing will ever be the same again.

    Candace is the type of girl that his family would have wanted him to be with if he hadn’t been in juvie, if he hadn’t had piercings and tats. But he’s drawn to her like to a flame and he can’t figure out why-she’s too sweet. She’s too good for him. He wants to protect her and well…do other things to her as well. But her family and his will not stand for such a relationship between the two of them. They each have to overcome quite a few obstacles and the conflicts are just as swoonworthy as the saucy bits. 

    The overwhelming theme throughout Lynn’s story is love. It is in plentiful supply here and Rock Me feels like a hepped up romance novel with rock solid substance through and through (and all the good bits thrown in for good measure).  Flynn delivers the goods. Does she ever deliver the goods!  

    I loved Rock Me because it was a delicate balance of erotic romance, independence, sexual curiosity, tenderness, and plenty of warm fuzzies. The romance, the estrangements between Brian and Candace and their warring families is out of the box, believable, heartfelt, and when resolved, triumphant and shining. Highly recommended. Ms. Lynn has a new fan girl.

    A Fiendishly Bookish Review and one grumpy cat!
