Publisher Comments:

The second book in the sexy Elle Series comes alive when an impotent husband gives his loving wife the ultimate gift—a forty-eight- hour pass to fulfill any sexual fantasy of her choosing.

Aleesa is happily married and deeply in love with her second husband, and knight in shining armor, Army Reservist Walter Davis. After a two-year tour in Afghanistan, he returns home injured, impotent and struggling to keep a wartime secret that is sure to end his marriage. While Walter was away at war, Aleesa worked hard on his homecoming gift, a bound “freak book” featuring all of her delightfully decadent sexual fantasies, complete with boudoir photos taken by the talented and oh-so tempting Josiah Newman. But since his return, sex has been a nonstarter, the freak book a dismal failure, and as Walter struggles to come to terms with the ghosts of his warrior past, Aleesa finds her storybook marriage spiraling into the abyss of anger and depression.

While shes off on a girls getaway, Walter spends his days reading and getting lost in her sexual scenarios. His emotions span the gamut from anger to empathy and gratitude. Hoping it will assuage his guilt for being a failed husband, and allow them to move on, he gives his wife the ultimate anniversary gift—forty-eight hours to fulfill any sexual fantasy of her choosing. Aleesa, hurt and angry that Walt would even suggest such a thing, initially declines, but when his secret comes out and the truth is revealed, his gift becomes her ticket to ultimate revenge. But if she accepts, will it also unwrap the final bow holding together their troubled marriage?

Review:

"Davis's first of three erotic novels targeted to 'grown and sexy women' features 52-year-old Aleesa Davis, whose husband, Walt, is about to return to New Jersey after an 18-month stint with the Army in Afghanistan. Aleesa has written a book of erotic fantasies to welcome him home, and she boldly hires handsome young photographer Josiah to take nude photos of her for the book's cover. When her planned night of seduction is derailed by Walt's drunkenness and impotence, she struggles to reconcile his aloof and guilt-ridden behavior with his claim that he still loves her. Aleesa travels to California with her cousin and best friend to give herself some space, but when Walt's attempts to save their 16-year marriage push Aleesa into Josiah's arms, she must decide what she really wants. Davis's prose sometimes falters, but the tenderness and eroticism of Aleesa's stories for Walt and the raw emotion of the struggling spouses will carry the reader through.

Synopsis:

Aleesa Davis is happily married and deeply in love with her husband, a Special Forces officer serving in Afghanistan. But when Wade returns home from the war, he is psychologically injured, impotent, and struggling with the idea that he can’t satisfy the woman he loves. Aleesa still loves her husband, but she’s struggling with the loss of their once-great sex life.

While Wade was at war, Aleesa kept a journal of her secret fantasies, all featuring her husband, that she planned to give him as a gift when he returned. But since his return, their sex life has been nonexistent and Aleesa puts the journal away, hoping their marriage will go back to normal at some point.

When Aleesa heads off on a spa weekend, Wade finds the hidden diary and spends two days reading it, lost in his wife’s fantasies. His emotions run the gamut from hurt and anger to gratitude and love. To show her his love, Wade decides to give Aleesa the ultimate gift: a weekend pass for her forty-fifth birthday. She has forty-eight hours to fulfill any sexual fantasy of her choosing, outside of their marriage, no questions asked. Will Aleesa accept the gift? What would a weekend pass do to their troubled marriage?

Featuring stories for the grown and sexy, the Eden Davis series novels feature dynamic women in their forties and fifties, each dealing with life, love, and sex, working to become the confident, empowered women they were born to be.
