While Naked Desires is a story about infidelity and illicit desire, what drives the affairs is what matters most, and who cheats on who may not be who you initially expect.

At its heart, this is Alisha’s story, and she’s a woman we come to admire, desire, and sympathize with. She’s stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily sexual, but all she wants is her husband – and he’s not only too busy to satisfy her desires, but he’s also too distracted to realize the toll his career is taking on their relationship. What’s so amazing about Samuel Silver’s writing is how much sensuality and erotic intensity he invests in unrequited longing and interrupted intimacy. It’s like the literary equivalent of edging . . . and it works.

There’s almost a soap opera element to the relationships, with secrets, schemes, and betrayals all layered on top of the other. It’s the women who make the story (Mac is really just a pawn between), with Stephanie the most questionable of the three and Venessa the most interesting (and likable). The relationship between Venessa and Stephanie is an exciting one, but the dynamic between Venessa and Alisha is where the story satisfies most.

Unlike most cheating erotica, there’s no single victim to feel sorry for here, no single homewrecker to blame, and that makes Naked Desires truly exciting.

My sincere thanks to the editor for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
