After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed—and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth—except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B—Bondage and Breakfast—catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go.

This was very different than what I originally read. While it is about Bondage and the whole lifestyle, what's different is that this isn't a couple who are finding each other, just a couple who are trying rediscover the passion that they had. 

At first I had a difficult time finishing this book just because of the age difference that was throwing me off. The last few novels that I have read are at least somewhat closer to me in age, like within ten years, but this was not so much. 

I thought it was interesting taking a different perspective in this novel and the B and B, Bondage and Breakfast. Jess and Alex were interesting characters and I found myself really liking them.

Like the other two books that were part of the anthology, this story is the last one in the anthology, so if you make it past the first two stories, give this one a try. You'll be losing nothing. It's short and can be read in less than an hour.
