Ravenous is actually my first book by M.S. Force/Marie Force and it was a sexy, sweet read I enjoyed. I don’t particularly LOVE tropes that have anything to do with babies, nor am I a fan of BDSM romances all that much, but I thought I’d give this a try, and it turned out better than I expected! The characters were likable and the kink was not boring – I liked Ravenous enough that I’m definitely contemplating reading the rest of the series!
Ellie Godfrey’s biological clock is ticking at thirty-five, and since she really doesn’t want anything to do with men at this point, she decides to have a baby – on her own. But right before she decides to go to a clinic for some random sperm, her brother’s best friend offers to be the donor, but only if they conceive the baby the old-fashioned way. What’s a girl to do when the guy she’s always been attracted to but could never have wants to help her have a baby? Well, she obviously says YES.
British, wicked, and gorgeous, Jasper Autry has always wanted Ellie, but being best friends with her brother has kept him from ever pursuing her. He’s not cut out for a relationship, and a secret about his own heritage has him even more against relationships. But getting to be with Ellie, awakening her to his kinkier tastes of BDSM, particularly his dominance, has him wanting her more and more – until he’s not satisfied until he owns her, body, heart, and soul. Now he has to find a way to convince he wants everything with Ellie, and fight for their chance at a HEA.
Jasper is the absolute sweetest – almost too sweet at times that it got a little cheesy, I’ll admit. But I liked that he didn’t fight that hard against loving Ellie. Ellie is tough and independent – I didn’t connect with her all that much, but I still enjoyed her character. Jasper and Ellie’s romance had a few surprises I didn’t see coming, but I found myself enjoying their developing relationship and how hard they fought for their love. I would definitely recommend this book for those who like their BDSM on the lighter side and sweet, almost cheesy, romances.
