One Night in His Custody by Teri Fowler is a touching yet sex drenched erotic romance about two lovers reuniting after a devastating breakup.
Ten years before the story begins, Michael is conflicted about his sexual urges, so instead of coming clean with Olivia, he broke up with her instead of hurting her. Years later he understands that he is a sexual dominant, but is still unsure if he can handle a full relationship with Olivia. Olivia, on the other hand, knows that she wants Michael back in her life and is willing to do everything it takes to get him back, even if it means playing dirty.
I was immediately drawn to Olivia and Michael’s story after finding out that Teri Fowler wrote it. I think I said this in another review but she is fast becoming one of my go to authors for well-developed interracial erotic romances. I loved Michael and Olivia; she is feisty, intelligent, and compassionate. Michael is absolutely perfect; I loved how considerate he was, and loved even more how he took control once he realized that Olivia was being serious.
I usually don't care for maledom (I am more into femdom), but since he did not go deep into the BDSM scene, I found it enjoyable. The story focuses more on their love story and the steamy sex scenes are folded within the tale. I also liked how the difficult issue of race was dealt with; it was never an issue for the couple but was more of an external factor that they addressed and quickly moved on from.
The only nitpick that I have is that I cannot really tell where the story was set. From looking at some of the vocabulary it is either set in England or possibly Canada. Not a big deal in the slightest, it just would have helped set the mood a little more if I knew where it was set.
When Olivia Fitzgerald gets a bit tipsy on a friend's hen night, the last thing she expects is trouble with a policeman. Even worse, the policeman is her ex, Michael Williams.
Michael stops her from getting arrested and insists on seeing her home. Olivia can't resist the urge to ask the question that has haunted her since they split—why did he never have sex with her?
Michael just wants to get Olivia home without revealing that he is still in love with her. But Olivia ends up in his arms, begging him to take her to bed. He doesn't want to reject her again, even if he is on duty, but he just can't imagine a good girl like Olivia allowing him to do the dirty things he'd always longed to do with her.
Can he dare to hope she might still love him after she spends one night in his custody?
