Craving Redemption - Tracy Lorraine

Reading Challenge Category: Free ARC from Booksprout

Official Blurb:

A one-night stand I can’t get out of my mind.
Trey was only meant to be a distraction, someone I’d never see again.
Turns out the man starring in my wild fantasies, is also occupying the desk next to mine.
My experience with men tells me that he can’t be trusted, but my heart— and body, tells me something different.
His demands for more weaken my resolve, and I find myself craving a man that’s over a decade my senior.
I can’t escape the memories of our sizzling night together... I don’t want to.
He could be different, but was I willing to repeat my mistakes to find out?

My Thoughts:

I didn’t like the first 50% but then loved the last half!
Initially, I was really excited to be getting Erica’s story. We had met her briefly in the three Forbidden books about Ben and Lauren, and we had seen that she had an unfortunate time recently.
When she meets a mystery man, it is fast and furious, just as you would expect from a Tracy Lorraine book. However, when that mystery man turns up at work, Erica needs to be sensible not to make her situation worse. This is where I didn’t like the book. Trey came across as a bit of a lech; he just would not leave her alone but not in a sexy way. She was eating lasagne in a restaurant, and he was molesting her under the table in front of all her colleagues while she kept telling him to stop. I was getting frustrated with him and wanted her just to slap him and walk away. His hands seemed to be everywhere, and he made me feel claustrophobic. Just let the poor girl eat her lasagne. I told my husband about this section, and I had him in stitches.
I know she fancied hi, but she kept saying no, and he was all hands and way too forceful.
Anyway, once she relaxed a bit and he started to be a little softer, it was the half of the book I began to like. It was still erotic, but with romance and flowers thrown in. I started to root for the two of them to get together, for Erica to let down some of her barriers and let him in. To really talk to him, get to know one another and live happily ever after.
Of course, there are two books in the series, so this was never going to happen in this book, was it! And oh my goodness that ending almost knocked me off my seat I just didn’t see it coming! I mean, huh????
How long do I have to wait for the next one????
