Strangers on a Train was not at all what I was expecting.  When I read the synopsis, I was prepared for rough, hot, one night stand sex that broke all kinds of taboo barriers.  What I ended up with was a sweet, slow, emotion packed book that seeped with romance.  I can’t honestly say that I was disappointed by this, but the synopsis doesn’t match up with the actual context of the book.

That being said, I enjoyed the story.  Charlotte reminded me of a lot of women I know – over the top romantic pretending to be interested in just a physical connection with someone to get close, but desperately hoping they end up finding prince charming.  When she first meets the sexy and mysterious Mark, their sexual chemistry is instant, and you’re expecting some wild, hot sex.  But what you get instead is the teenage girl fantasy of gazing into one another’s eyes; emotion passing through your bodies like some kind of magical force is at play, and slow, tantalizing love making.  Which, don’t get me wrong, is more than appropriate and appealing to most of us.  A lot of us actually prefer that kind of sex with the person that we love.  However, when you’re meeting a complete stranger… on a train… I think most people would agree with me that HOT, shameful sex is the better route to take here.  I’m just saying.

For what the story was, I really did like it.  Erin Aislinn writes very well, and her characters were fun and interesting.  I just hope for her sake that whoever writes her next synopsis does a much better job at projecting what the story is actually about.
