**Double Review** Birthday Wishes & All Wrapped Up ~ The List Books 1 & 2 ~ Braxton Cole

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.

An erotic novella from author Braxton Cole that will have you rushing to change your panties.

Mari is ready to spice things up a bit with her 30th birthday on the horizon. She uses the internet ot setup a hook-up. After weeks of talking to Luca, setting boundaries, and making "lists", the night as come to reap the benefits of all their planning. One thing she never expected was Luca being everything she never knjew she wanted and the fireworks between them.

Braxton Cole did an amazing job with this short novella. I wsn't prepared for it to end so suddenly. Thank goodness book 2 was readily available. The erotic scenes were scorching hot with just the right amount of tenderness. In the non-erotic scenes, we got just enough information about the main characters to form a formidable connection with them. Perfect balance!

Mari and Luca continue to work through their list of sexual fantasies in All Wrapped Up, Book Two in The List Series. They’ve abandoned their original plan of no strings attached and, for the most part, Mari’s learning to be okay with it. She definitely likes Luca’s strings (and whatever else he might use to restrain her), but she’s not sure she’s ready to take the next step in their relationship. Luca, sweet, strong, commanding Luca, insists that it’s time to move in together. Mari insists it’s time to relax and enjoy what they share without complicating things.

With every moment they spend together, Luca shows Mari how good they could be together. Will Mari run away from her emotions, or does Luca have her all wrapped up?

All Wrapped Up is Book Two in The List Series and contains mature adult themes, including graphic and explicit sex.

In the 2nd novella in the List Series we follow Mari and Luca as they explore the boundaries of their new found relationship. We also get to see a bit more interaction between the two and Mari's family. I do wish we could get a little more insight in Luca's family life. 

All Wrapped Up is even hotten than Birthday Wishes and I think it has more to do with their budding relationship as opposed to the quick hookup!

Love it Braxton Cole! Can't wait for book 3!!

Braxton Cole lives in the Pacific Northwest where she spends most of her time holed up in her office writing stories. When she's not writing, she can be found riding her bike, hiking the fabulous local trails, chasing her kids, or wishing that her thumb was a little more green. She has a bad habit of killing what she tries to grow, but hasn't given up hopes of one day being a successful urban farmer.

Braxton writes erotic romance because romance is the stuff that makes life great, and sex is fun. The two belong together, both in life and in fiction.
