The Redemption of River (Sex in Seattle #4) by Eli Easton 5*
BLURB: River Larsen is a world traveler, truth-seeker, and tantric healer. He’s a master of loving all—and no one. Both his past and his spiritual path warn him against attachment. When he falls for his surrogacy client and coffee magnate, Brent McKay, River tells himself it’s a temporary idyll, a beautiful encounter they’ll both enjoy and move on from like two ships passing in the stream of life. Except his heart misses that memo.
Brent McKay hasn’t been interested in sex since his wife died two years ago. When he goes to Expanded Horizons sex clinic in Seattle for help, he meets River Larsen, a sex surrogate specializing in reiki massage and tantric sex therapy. Brent never expected to be interested in a man, but River’s light-filled spirit, inner peace, and electric touch bring him back to life. Brent’s loyal heart is ready to commit again. But how can he convince River that love can last forever—if you just have faith?
My Review: “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy.” This book delivered everything I expect from an Eli Easton story. I don't want to give away spoilers, and if you've read any of the previous Sex In Seattle stories, you already know that the relationship grows in an easy organic way and Eli has the knack of taking her readers along for the ride, She gives us Great Characters, Heart-warming Romance, and a chance to learn something new. In this case it was a better understanding of Chakras and Tantric Sexual Healing and the philosophy behind them. I knew some small amount, but the way it was presented in the story made it so much more interesting and understandable to me. I think you don't need to read the first three stories but it will help your understanding of the work River does if you do, besides you get to meet all the other characters again in this one so it's all good. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed previous Eli Easton books and to anyone who wants to read a new to them author with a varied and interesting back-list of m/m romances. I warn you now you will want to get hold of that back-list and indulge in some really great writing.
