Molly Reviews: Melbourne Heat by Elizabeth Lapthorne

In the steamy Melbourne summer nights, two men meet by chance in the Botanical Gardens.

Spencer, against his better judgment, agrees to meet a new client in the Botanical Gardens. While waiting, he bumps into Charles, who is out paintballing with some mates. Spencer agrees to have a quick bite to eat with Charles, not knowing the sequence of events that will unfold from such a simple action.

Charles is a shifter with plenty of secrets and Spencer has unwittingly brought someone else into the mix—another shifter, eager to stake his claim. Even after such a short time, Charles can’t imagine giving Spencer up. He’s willing to fight for what’s his. Spencer has also found himself falling in love with Charles, despite the secrets that surround him. Passion and danger collide and soon both men will have decisions to make. Ones with serious consequences.

This was a fun little escape erotica store that I enjoyed reading. This was my first book by this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Plus I wanted something short to read quickly. This definitely fit the bill and I’m glad I read it. I liked the slightly different spin on mates in this book. It wasn’t all fate says so therefore we are perfect together and you get no say. There was more free will involved which was a refreshing change. The book was light on details and character development. However the sex was steamy and I liked the power games Charles and Spencer played. I’d classify them as BDSM light, but it might be too much for others. Definitely worth a read for fun and light enjoyment.
