Three lovers really click in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Call on Me—
Cora has an amazing sex life. She’s beautiful, daring, and the most popular submissive in Hayven. Too bad none of it’s real...
IT specialist Cora Benning has figured out the key to her formerly disastrous love life—make it virtual. In the online world of Hayven, she’s free of her geek girl image and can indulge her most private fantasies with a sexy, mysterious master without anyone in her life discovering her secrets. Until her information is hacked and she finds herself working to fix the breach under two very powerful men—one who seems all too familiar...
Best friends and business partners Ren Muroya and Hayes Fox were once revered dominants. Then Hayes was wrongfully sent to prison and everything changed. Ren wants to get back to who they were. Hayes can’t risk it. But when they discover the new IT specialist is their online fascination, and that she’s never felt a dominant’s touch, the temptation to turn virtual into reality becomes all too great…
The Story: Loving You Easy is about Cora Benning, an incredibly smart, IT professional feeling somewhat confused about her desires. She was just getting out of a bland friends with benefits relationship when she finally accepts she is just "a bro with a vagina". Her friend drags her to a networking mixer where she scandalously meets our first hero, Ren, the sexy, exotic dominate. When he tries to confront her, she quickly leaves. She starts dabbling in an online game/community called Hayven, where BDSM is the lifestyle. It's in this fantasy world that she meets hero number two. Her information is hacked, causing her to be almost assaulted. When she storms into the office of the makers of Hayven, she ends up going down a crazy rabbit hole where virtual meets reality. MMF|MFM
The Likes: OK so WOWWWW, this is not normally my go to genre. In fact, I went into this book completely blind having NEVER read anything by Roni Loren, saw BDSM mentioned and majorly rolled my eyes. I was thinking here we go again, another BDSM book. That is SOOOO not the case though. I absolutely loved this book. I love the fact that the heroine was an independent, brilliant computer nerd. I loved that the leading men were so loyal, sexy, and mysterious. I also liked that the writing was in the third person the entire time. I loved that this is so not your typical boy meets girl romance. It's a completely outside the norm relationship that works far better than I thought it would and GOOD LAWD, Roni can write some steamy scenes.
The Dislikes: There was some predictability about this story but it wasn't an all together bad thing IMO. I would have liked to have gotten to know more about the backstories of the main characters. Possibly more into Ren and Hayes' friendship growing up.
The Rating: I'm giving "Loving You Easy" a 5 star rating because, plain and simple, I loved it. It kept my attention from the very start and had me wanting more when it ended. I will definitely be checking out the rest of the books in this series!
