Blog Tour Review: Birthday Wishes (The List #1) by Braxton Cole

Book Title:Birthday Wishes (The List, #1)
Author:Braxton Cole
Genre: Erotic Romance

Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.

But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?

Birthday Wishes is Book 1 in The List Series is intended for an adult audience only and contains mature themes, including graphic and explicit sex.


Our Review:
3.5 Stars

What do you do when you are turning 30, you are not only single but divorced, and you haven’t had sex in what feels like forever? Well if you are Mari, you set up a meeting with the sexy booty call you met online.

Birthday Wishes introduces us to Mari, a strong independent business owner whose only problem is her need for sexual release and disinterest in the dating world. Though she does not want to place herself back into the world of dating her needs as a woman overpower her and she finds herself turning to the online world to find someone who is only looking for a sexual relationship and who will fulfill her sexual fantasies without the awkwardness of having to date.

She is on her way to her tryst when she is sidetracked with a surprise birthday party by her best friend and entire family. A twist of fate results in Luca her tall and absolutely gorgeous booty call coming to her party her thoughts race with what they could do (more like what he could do to her) then she is brought back to the present the picture she is seeing was never supposed to happen. Their relationship was supposed to be just sex and now here he stands surrounded by her family being questioned by her mother.  When they are finally able to leave they continue with their plans and she is rewarded with the most amazing sex of her life.

Mari and Luca continue their sexual relationship but things become complicated when the need for more than just sex is brought up. Can Mari handle dating again? Can she give up Luca? Or can she continue their arrangement knowing one wants more? Although Birthday Wishes progresses somewhat slowly and some of the plot seems a little familiar you will find yourself captivated with the relationship between Luca and Mari and just when you think they’re headed somewhere good you read the words THE END!!!!!  You are left with a need for more of them and a need to know more about our Luca. I am looking forward to reading more about their relationship, and more importantly more about Luca.
