Sabrina and Jonathan are co-owners of a commercial photography studio and they are going through a dry spell - creatively, financially and sexually. When they receive three boxes simply marked Open Me, things start looking up as they start seeing each other for the first time.

*This is a short story - 15 standard pages.

*Warning: Open Me is for ADULTS ONLY due to sexually explicit M/F scenes involving sex toys, Cup-O-Noodle and a really sturdy table.

Why I Read this Book: I was curious, I wanted had to know what was in those boxes!

What I Liked: I enjoy reading friends-to-lovers romances and that’s what Open Me is. It was a fun story to read and there were definitely some laugh out loud moments. Like the calendar Sabrina and Jonathan were working on.

November would be so much easier and a lot more fun; she was actually looking forward to recreating the cast of Twilight in kiwis and bananas.

LMAO!! This visual was hilarious! I can picture it now – Edward as a sparkly banana. LOL

Looking down at his crotch, he issued it a stern warning: […] If you can do this for me, I’ll reward you greatly tonight. Am I clear?


What I Didn’t Like: There was one scene where the transition that felt a bit disjointed. Sabrina and Jonathan are at the studio and I thought something was going to happen, but nothing did. I was fine with that but the scene ended abruptly and next thing you know, it’s the following morning. Other than that one little blip, the story flowed fluidly.

Overall Impression: Open Me was a fun, quick read. This novella is very short but there’s just enough background story to make the story come full circle and feel believable. Great novella for in between reads or a quick read before bed.
