TITLE - Sexsomnia: Sleepless in Manhattan
AUTHOR - Anya Omah
Release Date - May 20th
Jayden King is successful, charismatic, attractive—and bored to death. Especially of women, who fall at his feet by the dozens… eventually leaving him so indifferent to sex that he decides to say goodbye to the singles scene and focus all his energy on expanding his hotel empire. He’ll need a good assistant to help him, and Abigail Davis, fresh out of grad school, seems like the perfect fit for one of Manhattan’s most sought-after jobs. Until she suddenly withdraws her application.
When Jayden hears why, he can hardly believe his ears. No woman’s ever dared tell the millionaire bachelor what she really thinks of him… and Abigail isn’t one to mince words. Jayden’s not about to take no for an answer, and changing her mind is a challenge he can’t pass up.
“A quick romance, 5 stars”
Sexsomnia is a quick romance read. Not only do you read about two people who fall hard and fast but you also get a dose of education all in one.
Sexsomnia is a condition where one engages in sexual activities while asleep. Our heroine Abigail suffers from the condition. Can you imagine having such a condition? Would you be able to trust the person you share a bed with not to take advantage of you when you're asleep? I know I could trust my husband, but before him? That would be a scary thing.
Abigail trusted someone once, and got severely burned in the process. Leaving her unforgiving and untrusting. Now she’s in the process of seeing how deep her condition is and attending therapy. At the same time, Abigail finally joining the workforce after college and getting on her feet. It’s a whole lot of change in a little amount of time. To push matters, she finds herself immediately attracted to her new boss Jayden.
Jayden wants to know everything about the little spitfire who isn’t afraid to dish it right back at him. When he learns of her condition? He wants to do everything he can to help the girl out, even if that means volunteering to be her lab partner. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for the girl. Secrets will come out on both sides and lines will be drawn. Will they end up on the same side together or will long standing trust issues for both keep them separate.
Here are a couple pieces from the story that I liked;
“Charming vs. dark. Sexy laugh lines vs. deep, intense gaze. Tough call, very tough call. That’s like choosing between hot chocolate with marshmallows and my favorite burger.”
“Cold,” she mumbles. “This is assault. You sadist.”
“But the idea of sharing you, the thought of other men touching you, kissing you… of some guy getting as close to you as I had… was just intolerable.”
Writing style- 5/5
