It’s a guttural command.
He bends me over the arm of the couch, and my hands hit the cushion for support, to steady myself. At the sound of the condom tearing, my inner muscles contract, bracing for him. He spreads my cheeks and, slipping his whole hand between my legs, cups the trembling flesh. I’m unprepared for the swipe of his tongue. For the subtle abrasion of his beard scraping the inner skin of my thighs. For the sound of him eating me. I push back against his face, helpless, no shame. Digging my nails into the cushions, I widen my legs to give me more, to take more for myself. He grips my thighs, holding me steady for his devouring mouth until, with a sob that sails over the rooftop, over the city, I contract around his delving tongue. The orgasm hits hard, tightening the muscles in my thighs and calves. With staccato breaths, I bury my face in the couch, biting my lip to the point of pain.
“Canon,” I beg. “Stop teasing me and—”
He shoves in, and the words tumble back down my throat, recessing into the shock of this pleasure.
“Jesus.” Need shreds my voice to ribbons.
He coasts his hand up my back, gently cuffs my neck. Ass in the air, I rise up on my toes, begging for breath, petitioning for more dick. He gives it to me, pushing impossibly deeper.
“So damn good,” he grunts behind me.
I hope I never get over how perfect he feels inside me, like I was molded to his specifications. Shaped for his dimensions. I moan and reach my hand back to pull at one of my cheeks, widening the way for his cock. It feels like he goes where no dick has gone before, deeper, better. Somehow I feel each thrust in my heart. His every touch plays on my emotions, and tears sting my eyes. His hand tightens at my hip, and he slides the other hand up my arm, finds my hand on the couch and laces our fingers together. He sets a frenetic pace that sends the blood singing through my body again. The cushion absorbs my scream as I come, and I punish the soft cotton with clawing nails. With his voice strangled, his fingers fisted in my hair, he comes.
Collapsing against my back, a heavy, happy burden, his breath stilted and warm at my neck, he snakes one muscled arm around my middle, clutching me. After the urgent, feral coupling, it’s a cherishing hold. I cross my arm over his at my waist and tangle our fingers. It’s fragile and sweet, this moment, like flakes of sugar disintegrating on your tongue when you’ve barely had time to taste.

Books like Reel are some of the hardest to review. Not because I didn’t like it ( l loved it) but, because I want to tell you ALL THE THINGS. If I tell you ALL THE THINGS I risk dimming the light that comes from experiencing a book that wraps itself around you and makes walk right along it’s characters as they go through their highs and lows. So, please bear with me…. I’m going to try and tell you why you should be buying this book without giving anything away.
The key cast of Reel is fairly small and I genuinely liked them all. Neevah and Canon are both people I would be proud to hold up to my kids and say “that’s how you do it. That’s hard work and that’s getting it done”
From a story/plot perspective, there is a lot going on here and this is a LONG book. But, Ms Ryan does an excellent job of keeping things moving. Everything here feels necessary to the story and to the growth of the characters and the relationships that take center stage.
Ms Ryan is the queen of meeting where they are and moving them down the emotional road. She took what could have been a typical power imbalance romance and added layers that were both thought provoking and heart string tugging. The one thing left out here was the fate of the movie, Desi Blue. I am hoping that means we will be coming back with some of the wonderful secondary characters to see what happens next.
