Twenty-seven year old Sarah finds her imperfections overwhelming. She is painfully single and hopelessly desperate for the attention of her less interested workplace crush, Alec. Despite her burning, inner passion and prepossessing intellect, Sarah feels that her only chance of landing Alec lies with a miraculous internet weight loss ad. The seller offers an expensive, however, rapid and effortless life change. Sarah's willingness to meet any cost brings a dark, intensely charged, and generously domineering stranger to her door ready to deliver the goods. He makes his pledge and Sarah reluctantly accepts the offer. Following the forceful relinquishment of Sarah's innocence, the unhallowed salesman fills her again with an implacable darkness, leaving her with a total body makeover, an unrelenting hunger, and a final choice of how it will be fed.
I'll begin by saying again how I love a strong female protagonist. There is nothing in the world to me that can match the intrigue of a strong-willed woman with the courage to make an effective move when it is necessary to get what her heart desires. Much like our beloved Sarah, Sweet boldly uses her craftiness to transform her vision into reality. She grabbed my interest with an unshakable grip using powerful foreshadowing, repeated thrusts of captivating internal dialogue, and a buxom cast of charismatic characters. A Moment on the Lips vigorously stimulates every sense and follows an original and unpredictable plot line that will keep readers at full attention right up to its explosive climax. If you are anything like me, you'll be right there with Sarah, eagerly anticipating the excitement of the final four installments in The Reluctant Succubus series that are soon to come.
I give A Moment on the Lips a rating of 5 / 5 stars!
