Ohhh I loved this one! Marc and Becky are married and they love each other deeply <3

I asked Sarah McCarty a question about the short story just to clarify something and she replied, so kindly! *.*

It's my second interaction with an author and I'm so happy :D

10 Shades of Seduction was an awesome anthology just thought you all needed to have 5 star instead of the anthology it self so i loved every minute of this story and was just letting you know i wanted to thank you for the adventure and taking me along for the ride! Thanks Sarah!

Sexy but boring

The way this story ends is disappointing starting to hate these novellas.

My first SM read, finding Letting Go in Naughty Bits 01 anthology. The plot arch was simple: married couple away for the weekend, no kids, no interruptions, looking to have a little "adult" time. Smexy times head, right?
What the author gave us was a peek in the lives of two people who love and trust each other...a study of how a relationship can grow deeper with deeper understandings of each others needs.
A loving husband who has a dominant sexual side he's held off because he senses his wife's
"She wanted him to take her like that. To use her for his satisfaction, to let her be nothing more than what he needed this once. Not having to think, to worry, just being there to satisfy him would be so good."

If you can read that sentence without having the urge to punch the heroine in the face - then this short story will likely be for you. BDSM-lite that definitely was not for me.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Just was unable to find cohesion in this. She's dominant in the bedroom but he is a dominant with all the experience. She has little to no experience. Two years of marriage and unanswered fears still lie hidden. But this man knows his woman and says she can do it all.
I would have liked this little quickie better had it been longer and we had more back story about why the couple needed to get away and why Becky thought she needed to do this.

I've read Letting Go a few times. Love McCarty's writing style, and this story is short, sweet, and sexy.

I remember it, sort of. I know that I wished there was more than just their one coupling to the stort.
This spicy short story consists of the last bit of a trip to a cabin, one scene between a married couple (and one of the toys in the big box they brought,) and then a fade to black.

Es un libro que solo tiene sentido dentro de una antología porque lo lees es media hora. La historia es el argumento y nada más.
