‘Ravenous’ is the fifth installment in M.S. Force’s erotic series entitled Quantum’ and like its predecessors it was gripping, tastefully erotically done and wonderfully written. As usual, Mrs. Force’s effortless story-telling made me devour this read in one sitting. ‘Ravenous’ like the previous installments in the series was a great mix of sexiness and sweetness with just a little pinch of drama. It was heartwarming and emotional at times with some perfectly blended funny moments. Needless to say ‘Ravenous’ had a little bit of everything to keep every reader hoked from the beginning until the end.
“I collapse onto the bed, a quivering wreck of a woman who used to have control over her life, until she let a sexy, charming Brit into her bed and found out what it’s like to completely lose control.”
Ellie Godfrey knows for sure the time to settle down has come. But she has one little problem – she’s single. Over the years she tried dating, but obviously the dating thing was a total failure. Wanting desperately to have a baby, Ellie plans to visit a sperm bank. She knows what she wants and she doesn’t care she would be a single mother. When Ellie shares with Jasper her plans the sexy British playboy makes her an offer – he will father the baby, but with a single condition, to make him in the old fashioned way. Ellie will have full custody since Jasper doesn’t plan to change nappies anytime soon, so the whole situation is a win-win for both of them.
Jasper is Finn’s (Ellie’s brother) friend and business partner. He had known Ellie for many years since she works for the production company he co-owns with Flynn and other several friends. Jasper always admired Ellie and secretly lusted for her. However, he knows they could never be a couple since she’s his friend’s sister and since she’s too sweet and far too vanilla for him. Jasper not only he likes hot, dirty, kinky sex, he needs it and he knows Ellie would never submit to him in bed.
“I own your pleasure, sweet Ellie. You come when I say you can, understood?”
The dynamic between them changes when Ellie accepts Jasper’s offer agreeing to keep it between them since their “relationship” will come to an end in a very short time. Neither of them expect the connection between them to be so strong, to be so great in and out of bed or to fall for each other in such a short time.
“Stay,” I whisper. “Stay with me tonight. Stay with me every night for as long as you can.”
I really enjoyed this one! Ellie and Jasper’s story was so swoony and definitely my favorite installment in the series so far. ‘Ravenous’ was fast-paced, intense at times with a very addictive story-line and like the previous installment in the series it can be read as a standalone. IMO this installment was the most romantic in the series so far. The romance between Ellie and Jasper was beautiful and I smiled and grinned so many times reading their story. I loved how everything between them progressed, the friendship between them and also their witty dialogue. I also loved how honest and comfortable they were with each other.
“I’ve never wanted anything more than I want to be free to love you, Ellie.”
The connection/chemistry between them was palpable and so very well done. Mrs. Force did a wonderful job with this aspect of the story. The two were so damn sweet together, but they were also hot as hell. Like in the previous installment in the series, the BDSM aspect was not too heavy which I liked. The sex scenes were well written, detailed and very passionate.
I loved these two characters – together, but also individually. Ellie was a fantastic heroine. Strong and determined she was so very easy to like. I liked the relationship she has with her brother, Flynn and also with her group of friends. As the story unfolded she proved that she’s perfect for Jasper in every way and that she’s everything he needs. The way she supported him at times was really heartwarming.
“I’m at home in her arms, and I never want to leave. I’ll do whatever it takes to have her, to have this. It’s everything. Nothing else matters.”
Jasper was such a swoon-worthy hero. I loved him from the very beginning. He was so charming with his sexy British accent, so considerate, sweet and caring. He was really a wonderful hero and perfect for Ellie!
Overall, a fantastic addition to the series! Can’t wait to read more about these characters and about the beautiful, heartwarming dynamic between them.
