Overheard * Maya Banks

Overheard by Maya Banks

Gracie Evans is a woman tired of the men in her life not satisfying her in bed. She’s had a string of boyfriends, but none of them have come close to satisfying the vivid fantasies she has. 

Two weeks before Valentine’s Day, she breaks up with her latest boyfriend after a night of lackluster sex. 

Gracie Evans isn't afraid to say what's on her mind, or of the consequences after she's opened her mouth and said a few words. So when she splits up with her boyfriend because the sex wasn't up to standards, she isn't surprised when he hits the roof and nearly her. 

Luke Forsythe has known Gracie for as long has he can remember. They we're in school together, college together and now they don't live that far away from each other. So when Luke bumps into the argument brewing up outside, he couldn't help but interject. But something is on the tip of his tongue that he wants to ask her, something he knows she will be angry about.

See, Luke overheard Gracie talking, talking about her wildest fantasies and what she wishes to do with whoever gets with her. And Luke just can't wait to tell Wes, cause he knows he will be up for it as much as he is, and also Gracie. 

So the weekend of Valentine's day, Gracie is in for a treat. After going on a date with Luke and enjoying it, a weekend at the cabin filled with love and passion will be a great thing for her, and a change from the usual boring sex in her life. 

But things aren't what they seem when she walks in on Luke and Wes having a conversation, about her fantasies and what they wish to do to her and for her. Half of her is downright annoyed that they planned this and didn't tell her. The other half is over the moon and aroused.  

Going with the flow and daring to try a new experience is frightful and nerve-racking, but Gracie has excepted the challenged and she cannot wait to get started. 

Overheard by Maya Banks, is the second installment in the Unbroken Series. In this novel, we follow the life of the main character Gracie Evans, a young woman who likes a challenge, new experiences and isn't afraid to speak what's on her mind. A girl after my own heart! 

Gracie has a secret that her best friend Luke overheard (hence the name of the book itself) and decides to jump to to the task, whilst dragging his friend Wes along with him. I thought this book was quite good and well thought out. Even though it was a bit like Not until You Risk ~ Part Two - Roni Loren (which you can find the review here to get a jist of this book that I'm reviewing now)

I thought it was better on a whole than the book by Roni Loren. 

The book series is quite short but the actual stories themselves aren't quite bad. I love the fact that they have an actual storyline and not just about sex which is great as it starts to get a bit boring with it just being about it. To put it quite frank, to me if it doesn't have a storyline to go with it, you may as well just watch porn. 

Now I know that some people may find me prude for saying that, I assure you I'm not, otherwise I wouldn't read books of the sort. I think there better when they have a story to go with it, it makes it, lets say "thicker" It is sexy as hell though! Scorching infact! 

All in all there is one more book in this series that I am currently reading and a new book review shall be up soon. Once again I am sorry that this book review is so late. I have been trying to update my cake page :) 

Thank you to everyone who is reading the reviews!

I will give this book 6.5 out of 10
