HEELS TOGETHER, KNEES APART
From Alex Grayson comes the first book in a brand new series
Today on Okie Dreams, we have a book review and release blitz for Alex Grayson‘s new release, Heels Together, Knees Apart. Heels Together, Knees Apart is the first book in the author’s Itty-Bitty Delights series and features a doctor/patient relationship. Heels Together, Knees Apart is a short novella and can be read in a couple of hours. Bryan and Charlotte were first introduced in the Take Me To Bed Anthology, but it has been revised and expanded.
I received an advanced reading copy (ARC) of this book from the author, publisher, or publicist. The receipt of this ARC did not influence my choice to review the book on this site. It also did not influence how I felt about the book or its characters, storyline, and overall feel. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. As such, they only deal with what is written on the pages of the book and how what is written and otherwise presented made me feel during and after my reading of the book.

He knew it was wrong, but he did it anyway….
Charlotte was his patient. He was meant to help her overcome her dirty need to flash unsuspecting men what she hides beneath her skirts.
He tried. He really did.
But then she started taunting him during their sessions. She'd sit with her heels together and her knees apart, giving him naughty glimpses of what he secretly craved.
It wasn't long before he was one of the men she was giving a peepshow to.
She just didn't know it.
This is a quick, dirty, one-sitting romance read. It features a doctor and patient relationship and more than few fetishes. It’s my first time reading this author and I found their work to be well-written and well-structured. The story drew me right in, too, and kept me engaged all the way to the end. It’s got that dirty-bad-wrong feel to it that lovers of taboo tales crave, and the characters are so well developed that a reader can’t help but root for them, despite the “wrongness” of it all.
Temptation. Obsession. This story deals with both, and then some. Charlotte does everything she can to tempt Bryan, to the point he becomes obsessed with her, and the desire she ignites in him. Yet, he struggles not to show his true feelings for fear of losing his medical license and her as his client. But Bryan’s struggle grows each time they see each other, and so does the temptation to give in to their wants and desires. And Charlotte certainly doesn’t make it easy on him. On either of them.
If you’re looking for a quick, dirty tale you can read in a couple of hours’ time, this might just be the book for you. The author knows how to build a story, and how to show you the darker side of human nature and human weakness.
I enjoyed this read a lot and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
“What about you, Doctor? Do you have any dark secret cravings?”
Her question catches me off guard. I do have a dark craving. A secret I’ve had for the past couple of months. One she can never know about, because I could lose my medical license. Not to mention it could end with a big fat restraining order against me.
I look back at Charlotte, and my mouth goes dry. Her skirt has ridden up way too much, showing the black strap to her garter belt. Did she lift it higher on purpose, or does she not realize she’s damn near flashing me?
I laugh internally at the irony of that thought.
Fuck my life.
I clear my throat and meet her eyes. “We all have secret desires.”
She lifts a brow. “Have you ever acted on them?”
I incline my head. “Yes.” Too many times to count, I silently add in my head.
“Hmm… interesting.” She props her elbow on the arm of the chair, one of her slender fingers rubbing along her bottom lip. “Care to tell me what those desires are?”
One side of my mouth tips up. “Have we reversed roles here, Charlotte? Are you now the doctor and I the patient?”
Charlotte looks gorgeous no matter what expression is on her face, but when she flashes me one of her flirtatious smiles, I swear to Christ the world around us ceases to exist. All I see is the curve of her luscious lips, and my only thought is how sweet they would taste.
“Maybe I’m just trying to get to know you better. Find out what makes you tick.” She drops her hand to her thigh, and my question from a moment ago is answered when her eyes stay locked on mine as she not so subtly slides her skirt up an inch. I try to keep my eyes away, I really fucking do, but it’s no use. “You know so much about me, but I hardly know anything about you.” She licks her bottom lip, teasing my control. “I’m curious what secrets you hold. What your desires are. What tempts you.”
She’s all of those things. She’s my dirty little secret, my naughtiest temptation, and my desire for her grows every fucking week she walks into my office. I often wonder how much longer I’ll be able to hide my attraction to her.
I move my notepad to the center of my lap, hiding my growing erection. From the smirk tipping up her lips, I have no doubt she knows the state she’s putting me in.
“You’re not paying me to know my secrets,” I tell her, the rough edge to my voice just another clue giving away my state of arousal. Charlotte’s always been a bit of a flirt during our sessions, but she’s upped her game today. “Why don’t you tell me about your most recent experience?”
I should be shot in the goddamn head for asking that.
What in the hell are you doing, I ask myself? Apparently, I’m really into self-torture.
