Most people learn about sex by acquiring skills and preferences with a series of sexual partners, picking up things as they go. Not so for Cole and Tanya. High School sweethearts they've learned as a couple and harbored desires they didn't feel their partner would embrace. Boy were they wrong. While the first half of their marriage was tied up with Tanya's career, now it's Cole's turn. Problem is he's feeling unneeded and obsolete and Tanya is feeling abandoned and lonely. Can this neglected marriage be salvaged?
Timely with the Olympics featuring prominently, Tanya and Cole's story isn't a unique one. The problem with the marriage that is. The roller derby and SWAT added a little drama and flair missing from most people's lives and is what kept the story moving. Of the two main characters I have to say I connected with Tanya the most. Cole seemed kind of a quitter and closet whiner. The sexual aspects of the story were fresh and realistic for a couple dipping their toes in new areas of sexuality, and the game idea was fun. A good lesson to all who fail to communicate with their partner in life.
SWAT officer Cole Westling walks a fine line of control. If his wife knew exactly what he wanted to do to her, he’d lose the most precious thing in his life. Instead, he throws himself into work.
Tanya Westling did not leave her job as a globe-trotting humanitarian to spend her nights playing roller derby and sleeping alone. Armed with a few adult toys and a prayer, she challenges him to a sensual game that will strip away their ideas of what sex should be.
Cole’s surprised but it’s his dream come true. With each sexual encounter, the walls between them come crumbling down and each must face the truth of what their marriage has been and what it could be.
