Can a one night stand turn into a lifetime? Cara Addison explores this in her wonderful book Going the Distance. Brett is the hot hunky guy we all wish to meet and Austin is the strong independent woman we all hope to be. They meet by chance and it's instant attraction but how long will it last?

This book was amazing, I LOVED it. Cara's use of humorous dialog between the two main characters had me literally laughing out loud! There are struggles for these two but the drama is kept to a minimum b

I don't normally have the patience to read through erotic novels/novella's as I am very much a fan of shorter, snappier stories, but when I got hold of 'Going the Distance' by Cara Addison, my boat was certainly floated. Cara has created two amazing characters in Brett and Austin, both very attractive, successful in their chosen careers and in need of some serious TLC (and more). From the moment they first hook up, their many, varied and exciting encounters are captured with real passion. I have ...more

Hot sex and lots of it, between two very attractive people. An afternoon fling starts beside the hotel pool, quickly moves upstairs, lasts until morning and then becomes a week-long affair. They enjoy each other in every position and place imaginable. When it's time for them to leave they don't want to part.

They continue the affair alternating between her home in Toronto and his in New York. The sex is, if anything, even hotter as their time is shorter and the relationship... (Oops. Don't want t

From the first chapter, this book is SIZZLING! Brett and Austin meet in a surprising way, but they sizzle between the sheets, on the couch, at the night club, etc. I love how she inspires through her sex life with Brett through her writing and that Brett and her inspire her writing. The passion they have for each other inspires my husband and I as well.
I love Austin's boldness and how she is so comforatable with her own sexuality. This story has some very adventurous sex scenes and two very pass

This was a really interesting read; not my normal genre but I won it and the author was so nice! I just had to check it out. It starts out really hot and stays that way. At first I thought it would be plotless and just filled with steamy scenes but that isn't the case here. She manages to utilize these well developed characters in a romance plot that works well alongside the all the steamy scenes. I find myself enjoying Brett and Austin both and wanting to know more about them.

Austin is in marketing, but off hours, she writes erotica. Brett is in investment banking. They meet while on vacation. Within minutes, the are in bed together. When the vacation ends, they must decide if the distance between Toronto and New York is too much.

This is a solid book with wonderful characters and a well-developed plot. However, it is the sex that makes this book! It is packed full of sex scenes, and they are HOT! I admit to rereading several of them.

Cara Addison's "Going The Distance" is a sexy read. The sex scenes are plentiful and hot. I love the chemistry between Austin and Brett. There's hardly a page in there that doesn't have hot sex on it. There is a lot of variety and the nookie scenes never feel repetitive. I am definitely going to see what else Cara Addison has out there to read!

“Is this all based on personal experience?” he asked, tapping the book.

She reached across the table and put the book back in her purse. She sighed. “Some of it is loosely based on personal experience.” She took a long drink. “Some of it is based on stories that my friends have shared. Some of it is just…pure imagination. That’s the fun of being an author.”

“He was shaving when she stepped out of the shower. She ran a towel over her hair and body. She was generously applying lotion to her body as he splashed water on his face. “Fuck, you’ve got nice tits.”

She watched his reflection in the mirror. His eyes were focused on her chest. His dick was hard. Very hard. “Do you want to fuck them?”

He exhaled as he leaned against the vanity, lifting his eyes to meet hers. “Well, I do now.”
