Review – Polished by Alyssa Turner

It seemed like they had everything, but they didn’t have Jack.

Without question Spencer Hartley burns hot for his girlfriend, Rory, but his other desires are hidden down deep. He might blow things up for a living and climb mountains for kicks, but the scariest thing in his life is the truth about his sexuality.

Jack Rothman works hard and plays dirty. After long, demanding days in his family's engineering firm, he indulges in the pleasures of silk restraints and fine wine. Lots of hot meaningless sex helps him forget that he's suffocating, with no one to give him a reason to breathe.

When a catastrophic accident traps Spencer in a flooded subway tunnel with Jack, they need each other to survive. But something strong stirs down there in the darkness, and it's more than their desperation to live. There's a spark between them that's impossible to ignore.

Rory Campbell would love to give Spencer the one thing he doesn't have, the freedom to explore his secret desires. But how does that fit into her picture-perfect relationship? When Jack invites the couple to his sprawling Hamptons beach house, Rory realizes that she has secret desires of her own--the kind only Jack's Dominant hand across her bare bottom can satisfy...

(Polished is book one in a series of standalone stories including Swept and Make Me)

As I mentioned in the Swept review, I read this “out of order” so to speak. Totally my mistake, but I’m extremely happy that each installment can be read as a standalone. In some ways, I think I enjoyed this one more reading it as a “prequel” so to speak since I read it second in line. Please keep in mind that I read Swept before I read Polished, so my opinion and views will be slightly different than those who read them in “order”.

After reading Polished, I already knew that Rory and Spencer are too cute together. Seriously. They’re two peas in a pod. Ok, they both have some issues that they need to work through, but you can absolutely see the love that flows from one another for each other.

So when Spencer meets Jack during an accident, that by the way is cray cray, it’s understandable how Spencer’s “feelings” start to get a little jumbled when it comes to his sexuality. Good thing Rory is in tune with making sure that Spencer explores who is he both inside and out. After a very intense beach bonfire, let’s just say that there was no turning back.

WOWZA! Ok, I had to say it. I thought that there were some awesome sex scenes written in Swept. Holy Mollie! All I have to say is, “Dang Ms. Turner”!!!! Hot hot hot doesn’t even start to express the chemistry that’s going on between each of these guys. Not just M/M, but M/F and M/F/M. I need a fan just re-thinking about it. (sigh)
