Review: Consent to Love by Abby Wood (18+)

Consent to Love
Published April 2nd 2012
by Carina Press
Twenty-four-year-old small-town girl Ana Reynold serves beer at the local bar, tries to keep her beater car running, and dreams of a better life as a painter. If she can learn to make a decent steak, she might get promoted to cook—and earn enough for her real heart's desire. Right now, that doesn't include romance.

But when she meets a tall, dark and sexy Native American man named Kane, Ana can't take her eyes off him—or stop thinking about him. But she'd better. Everyone knows the proud Lakota who raises horses wants nothing to do with a townie barmaid who'll bring shame to his people.

Except Kane can't get Ana off his mind. He proposes a red-hot weekend in bed, a no-strings affair to end Monday morning. Yet once Kane brings the outsider onto Lakota land, everything changes..

I enjoyed this book so much! The first part of this book was really about seduction. I know I felt seduced while I was reading this book. I also enjoyed that this book was about diversity, and excepting those who are different. I loved how this showed all people regardless of skin color should be equal. I feel like there were many lessons to learn in this story.

Ana is just a barmaid with the desire to be something more. When she sees a mysterious sexy Indian man from the reservation, she can’t help but want to get to know him. His look alone seems to promise such pleasure.

Kane knows being with a woman off of the reservation is a bad idea, but can’t deny the connection he feels once he sees Ana. Feeling he needs to just get her out of his system, he proposes a weekend of strickly sex. But once they get to spend that one weekend together everything changes.

I loved the emotional pull of the characters and how they develop. I feel like Kane helps Ana to grow up and I love how she defends him against the people in town off the reservation. In the story and through the eyes of Ana you learn the lesson that you should not look down on someone because of their race. Accept people for who they really are. This is such a valuable lesson in life. This story also shows you the meaning of if you love something set it free. Kane does that with Ana even though it tears him apart. He wants to be sure there are no regrets later on when she gets older. Understanding that right now she is young and does not really know what she wants in life. Even if she thinks that she does.

The connection to Kane is just amazing. I found I was so seduced by him in this story; I wanted to be in his bed to see what pleasures he could give me!

4 out of 5 stars
