Simple Need (Simple Need #1)
I’ll go on record as saying that this was one of the most down and dirty erotic stories I’ve ever read. I’m not normally into the one-night-stand storylines, even when they end up being more than just one night, but Simple Need got my attention from the first page and held it right through to the last. Never before have I been so captivated by tattoos and piercings as I was while reading this story – and let me just tell you, Vinter has plenty of both, and the bad boy attitude to go with them. T...more
There isn't much of a plot or character development in this short story, but who cares? Just grab a
The model on the cover is pretty hot, but it doesn't hurt to have another visual aid:

I’ve never read an erotica romance before this. So some of my friends here on GR (Elena and Holly) wished to corrupt my mind further by introducing me to this genre and well... I got my erotica-romance-cherry popped, so to speak :P
This short story is HOT HOT HOT! When Elise gets dumped via text message by a douche, she does her sulking in a bar (I mean, where else is there to go?). When a hot tattooed and pierced man approaches her and offers to “take care...more

Vinter is a real bad boy and I loved his name. It's special and beautiful. Anyway, who needs a "stuffed suit" when you can have a smokin' hot guy with lots of tattoos and piercings?
Elise feels a bit down because she got dumped via text message by a jerk in a suit. She goes to a bar for a drink (or preferably more t...more
I LOVED this.
It's certainly inspiring stuff...I'm off to get myself dumped and start trawling bars for a naughty tattooed wild man.
The last line of the book blurb pretty much sums this up: Unexpected tenderness. Unimaginable lust. Being dumped has never felt so damn good.
Oh boy it was damn good. Damn, damn good. Clench your legs together, good. Molest your husband, good.
I really enjoyed Simple Need. Vinter was so damn fine. He was confident, direct and have the most wicked piercing in his nether regions...yes ladies, his jolly roger was all pimped out. On top of that, his body was perfectly covered like a canvas in...more
Thanks to my GR friend who's name I wont mention. You know who you are(Leather Lust).
This book shocked me of its contents.
Simple girl gets dumped and meets a guy who's not quite her typical choice of men.
Vin is definitely not your typical guy. He helps Elise forget her troubles, oh, in so many different ways.
I recommend this short story and find out how.
Vinter made me forget my troubles too. ;D
Simple Need alright...I simply need a sweet, smokin' HOT tattooed, pierced bad boy like Vinter!
I've read a lot of on-line erotica and this story is one of the sexiest, juiciest, and frankly dirtiest erotic stories I've read.
Holy hell, talk about scorching hot!
I loved both Vinter's and Elise's characters. Vintner (love the name) was beyond scrumptious. The black painted fingernails I could have done without. A little too gothic for me. Both Vinter's and Elise's characters felt fresh and vibrant. I was amazed at how multi-dimensional they were...more
Intimacy: Sex-citingly GOOD + DELICIOUSLY GOOD
Enjoyment: OFF THE CHARTS
Elisa is in Vinter's bar drinking her sorrows away because she was dumped by "TEXT.” Vinter has been watching Elisa the moment she stepped in his bar. What was supposed to be a friendly cheering up by Vinter turns into hours of rebound sex.
O.M.G, is it even possible to rate a book 6 out of 5 stars when it comes to erotica. If not, it does not matter; this book got a six star rating....more
Surprisingly, there were a few very tender moments. It all started as a one-night stand, and ended realistically -- Let's date! Perfect ending for a quick read.

Some just need to meet the right person to bring out the best in them. Elise just got out of a very vanilla relationship with a married man. She was unaware of his relationship status throughou...more
Elise has just been dumped – by text message – and goes to a bar to drown her sorrows. Somewhere she wouldn’t normally venture, where she can be alone. She’s on the verge of leaving when a stranger joins her at the bar, the kind of man she’d normally avoid. Tattooed. Hard looking. Gloriously hot and yummy.
Simple Need is just that--two people instantly drawn to each other without unnecessary angst. Elise is a rubenesque heroine who just got dumped by her boyfriend by text message. Worse, she discovers to...more
Since this is a pretty short story, everything is pretty much fast-paced. Vinter is the owner of the bar where Elise decides to drown her sorrows after being dumped by her current boyfriend who had done the deed via SMS, letting her know in the process that he had been a married man all along. Average looking at most with a body that is a bit fuller than what’s the rage, Elise is on her way to becoming drunk when Vinter steps in making all her hormones go...more
But ok I will say more.
The short story begins with Elise in a bar, earlier that day her boyfriend dumped her by text. Elise is surburbia, a su...more
Elise and Vintner meet in his bar, she's nursing a breakup, and he is just what she needs to get her "mojo" back. It is a very sweet story and has some sexy scenes, but its only over the course of, I think, a weekend, maybe less. They are opposites on the surface, he's all tatted and pierc...more
Picture the scene, girl dumped horribly by her married boyfriend via text, devastated that she didn't realise he was already married, after having full access to him, (when you have a guys digits and address, you assume he has nothing to hide) she hadn't even suspected. Girl is sat at a bar drowning her sorrows swearing off men for good, cue hotter than hell guy approaches, asks to buy her a drink, lust sparks fly between them, guy offers a night of wild sex to make her forget...more
Vinter was a sexy and sweet hero and Matthews definitely excels at writing sizzling chemistry and hot scenes - this part of the book I could easily give 3.5 or 4 stars to - but overall Simple Need was not a smooth or even read. It was like we're shown the two characters, then cut to sex, then we see a little more personality and depth, then cut to sex, etc. I would prefer one or the other - either make it a romance story with hot love scenes that fit with the story and characters, or m...more

Favorite Quote: "By morning you won't remember his name and you won't want to forget mine."
Elise has been dumped by text message by her boyfriend who ended up being married. She has had full access to him – phone number, address, could see him anytime, so finding out he is married is quite a shock to her. Drowning her sorrows at a bar, she meets Vinter (love his name!) who takes one look at the luscious Elise and wants to make her feel better. He offers...more
When Elisa's boyfriend breaks up with her via text, she goes out and has a couple drinks. She is in Vinter's bar and he sees her, looking despondent. Vinter goes to her, planning on just sitting to talk for a bit. The two spontaneously combust when they meet, the chemistry is so r...more
