Author: Lorenz Font
Publication Date: October 10 2013
Summary (from Goodreads): Parker Davis has conquered three major American cities and is the new ‘it’ man in massage. He earned the nickname ‘Feather Light’ for his sensual touches, tender caresses, and soft voice eliciting an almost orgasmic release. Clients from all over clamor for his services and his clientele are growing by the minute. Business is at its peak, which makes Parker a busy man who has no time to deal with problems, let alone dwell on his blindness. With his declining vision, Parker has to accept his limitations and the changes brought forth by this disease, but he is not ready to relinquish the last control he has left. He is still the master in his bedroom.
Kelly Storm, a Hollywood actress, will do whatever it takes to get some much-deserved peace. Being famous has its perks, except the little privacy her popularity afforded her is slowly eating at her. With the paparazzi hounding her every minute of the day, and her personal life under constant scrutiny, Kelly wants a semblance of normalcy wherever she can get it. Under the urging of a close friend, she agrees give Parker a try.
Their first meeting is nothing she expected. Kelly finds comfort in his gentle probing and the spellbinding experience guaranteed to keep her coming back for more. Parker knows the woman on his table is special. He feels her vulnerability with his fingertips and her smooth curves leave a burning ache inside him.
One night of steamy passion is all it takes to know that they wanted each other in more ways than one. Kelly hides in heavy disguises, making it impossible for Parker to know her true identity. What secret is Kelly keeping and will she trust Parker enough to tell him the truth? Will Parker see beyond Kelly’s lies to show her what a future with him holds?
When asked to participate in the cover reveal for Feather Light I gladly jumped at the chance. I mean, c’mon. Have you looked at the cover? It’s hot, and sexy and completely erotic—three things I love. But I hadn’t yet read the book. A few days after the reveal I was still thinking about the smoking cover and decided to give into my curiosity and request the book.
Kelly Storm is the beautiful, pap hating actress—typical leading lady material. But then there’s our hero, Parker Davis. Handsome, successful, smart and blind. A twist to the normal, people. I love when authors throw in something to make their characters unique and Parker was just that.
The story wasn’t all that original, but you can overlook it because the characters have such great chemistry that fire up the pages that I read the book at blinding speed just to get more of them.
There were a couple of things that irked me though, as they always do in erotica. Please, Oh Goddess of the Erotic Word, stop all authors from using the word “kitty” to name their vaginas. Pussy is fine—more than fine, actually. Keep it to the P word if you can’t summon up the courage to use the C word. Just no more kitties. I’m begging.
Oh, and while we’re at what not to refer to North of the Border as. There was one line that Kelly referred to Parker’s package as his weapon. I don’t know if it was the phrasing or the whole scene but it was hilarious—and not in a good way. Sorry, just, no.
The author also liked to over use the description “his cock hanging with pride…”, in my opinion. Okay, we got it the first handful of times it was thrown around. His cock is glorious and all men would be proud to have it. We don’t need the constant reminder that he has a dick that would make a donkey envious.
Other than that Feather Light was a great little read.
