Misty Wilson is rich, the daughter of a famous actress, and a widow. She is lonely and sits in her apartment and uses binoculars to watch her neighbors. Her only joy is visiting the deli owned by her godfather. She was attracted to Pete Fusconi one of her godfather’s sons and friend to her deceased husband, but she married John anyway.
Pete Fusconi promised Misty’s husband John that if anything ever happened to him that he would look out for her. He knows he has not been doing a very good job of that but he means to change the status quo soon. He has been keeping an eye on her from his girlfriend’s apartment.
When Pete sees Misty holding a pill bottle, he assumes the worst and in desperation does a quick strip tease. Misty cannot believe her eyes when she spies Pete through the binoculars. Things get hot fast after that. They become close, but then Misty sees something bad through her binoculars that makes her doubt Pete. Will she listen to Pete’s explanation?
Taking It Slow is rife with subtle and explicit eroticisms making it a book to be read slowly so as not to miss anything! Misty, as the rich girl who has lost everything and is incredibly lonely, is so realistic I had tears in my eyes. Pete as the guy who cannot overcome his penchant for the bad girls that is until he sees Misty with the pill bottle, is very endearing. It was great reading about a guy who could admit, even if only deep inside himself, he was confused about women. The sex in this book is both hot and emotional, which for me is a must. Ms. Blaise has done it again, and I eagerly await her next book!
