Review: Carrot and Coriander by Ashe Barker

Old habits die hard. Her sexy young lover can make her body hum, but can she ignore the secrets of his past?

Rachel is drawn to the sexy young gardener offering to do odd jobs around her neighbourhood, no reasonable offer refused. She soon dreams up something for him to do at the bottom of her garden, and the view from her window is much improved as he works outside.

Callum can feel her gaze on him, can sense her fascination, but he has very particular requirements and he’s not at all sure his taste runs to middle aged freelance accountants, and a single mother at that.

However their attraction to each other is powerful, and as Callum starts to recognise the signals of willing submission which Rachel unconsciously gives off, he knows he must have her. Their passionate encounters liberate Rachel, unlocking her desires and demanding her surrender, while challenging all her inhibitions.

But when she learns the secrets of her sexy young lover’s misspent youth, can she get past her pre-conceived certainties to find a way for them to move on – together. Or was their new-found happiness doomed from the start?

Opposites attract, but are some differences just too deep to overcome?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of dominance and submission, including sex toys, pain play, anal play, oral sex, nipple clamps, restraints and spanking.

Usually I’m not much into May-December romances, but in the case of Carrot and Coriander, I’ll make an exception. This is one fun hot read.

Hello Callum! He’s no dummy, with what Rachel is asking him to do in her backyard. I like how the attraction she feels for him come out very natural. As a (AHEM) slightly older woman myself, I can completely understand why Rachel would be checking out the goods in her backyard. We the reader know he is, I mean, was a bad boy. A nice reformed gardener with a perchance of being a Dom is exactly what Rachel needs. Their connection is sweet and hot. And, of course, bumpy. It wouldn’t be a interesting book if there wasn’t some angst to go with it. I won’t go into details on how it ends except if you could see the smile on my face, you would be able to tell it was most satisfactory.

Two things I’d like to mention. 1). As an American Yank, I found myself challenged a few times on the English slang used thorough the book. This isn’t a bad thing. I definitely felt for a change I am reading a book with true British character. 2). That has to be one of the strangest safe words I have ever seen. I’m not giving any details but I must say it certainly had me thinking WTH!

Another great book by Ms. Barker. Seriously, in my book, this woman can’t write anything bad. As funny as the title is, Carrot and Coriander is a great book to lull around the afternoon reading. Pick it up now.
