Loving You Easy is a continuation of the Loving on the Edge Series by Roni Loren. This series is erotica at it's best, and is not "vanilla" as far as sexually-charged romance is concerned. Ms. Loren pushes boundaries in the romance genre, and shows readers the allure of sexual exploration and experimentation.
Cora Benning has never considered herself beautiful. She is introverted, savvy with computers, and considers herself a "tomboy geek girl." Her love life has suffered, and her ex-boyfriend said she was "like a dude with a vagina." Therefore, Cora has decided to explore her sexuality by playing a virtual game called "Hayven."
In this virtual reality she meets the powerful, sexy, and sexually dominating, "Master Dmitry" and gets to be the beautiful, confident, and sexually submissive, "Lenore." "Hayven" gives her the anonymity and freedom to explore her sexual kinks and interests in voyeurism and BDSM.
At a networking party, Cora meets the sexy Ren Muroya, when he is in a compromising position. She feels the allure of the way he dominates over his sexual partner. Ren tries to get to know Cora at the function, but then she quickly leaves the party.
When the virtual game, "Hayven" gets hacked into, and Cora is almost assaulted due to the hack, she decides to take action. She goes to the office of the game maker, and is shocked to learn that the owners are Ren Muroya and his business partner, Hayes Fox, who resembles her virtual game partner, "Master Dmitry." She has decided to join the team to try and track down the computer hacker, and make "Hayven" a safe place again. However, when the team begins to realize that the hacker might be a dangerous person out to hurt Hayes by setting him up, the three of them band together. Soon, all three of them are in the midst of danger from an obsessed madman. When business turns to pleasure, Cora, Ren and Hayes, have to decide if the menage is a temporary fun time, or if it may have the potential to turn into a meaningful lifetime love. Loving You Easy was fast-paced, and had me looking forward to turning the page. I'm not one to be in to stories that have menage, but I really enjoyed this one. Ms. Loren did an excellent job of developing the relationships between all three main characters, and found a way to give them substance. We learned about their past histories, their hopes, fears, insecurities, and desires. Cora, Ren, and Hayes made each other whole, and gave me insight in to how three people could fall in love with one another. However, my favorite aspect of the story was watching Cora empower herself. She became confident, and owned her sexuality. I loved watching her insecurities and self-doubt vanish, as she became a woman to be admired.
I give, Loving You Easy, by Roni Loren, 4 Kinky, Sexually Confident, Deranged Stalker, Menage, Love Filled Stars! If you like colorful erotica, filled with virtual gaming, BDSM, and danger filled suspense, then read this story! Roni Loren is one of my favorite erotica authors, and her stories never disappoint!
Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. After earning a master’s degree in social work from LSU, she worked in a mental health hospital, counseled birthmothers as an adoption coordinator, and did management recruiting in her PJs. But she always returned to writing. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her cooking, watching reality television, or picking up another hobby she doesn't need--in other words, procrastinating like a boss. She is a RITA Award winner and a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.
