Review: 30 Days by Christine D’Abo

30 Days Series #1

30 Days - Harrison Kemp and Alyssa Barrow

30 Days

From Goodreads:
For years, Alyssa has been going to bed with a memory. Is she ready to wake up with a fantasy?

Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mate, but not Alyssa Barrow. She met Rob at nineteen, and they were set to live happily ever after—until he became ill. In his final days, Rob urged his beautiful, young wife not to abandon happiness—or pleasure. He even left her a special gift, a sexy game plan to help her move on: Thirty cards with instructions for thirty days of passion. You’ll know when the time is right, he’d said. Now it’s two years later, and when Alyssa meets her hot new neighbor, Harrison Kemp, she begins to think the right time is right now…

From his sculpted thighs to his devilish grin, Harrison is the kind of man women want. Before she can lose her nerve, Alyssa tells Harrison about her long-ignored cards…and asks him to help her fulfill them. It’s a favor he’s more than happy to, um, perform. With his skillful touch, and the hot press of his lips against her skin, Alyssa finds herself re-awakening to life—and a host of other sensations. But what began as not-so-innocent fun soon grows into true intimacy, and Alyssa realizes she’s opening herself up not just to sex…but to love. When it comes to a future with Harrison, what’s really in the cards?

Saucy, heartwarming, and insightful, 30 Days explores the agony—and the ecstasy—of starting over, and how a little encouragement, and a little courage, can go a long way…

I really enjoyed this book. It’s like an erotic P.S. I Love you. The beginning of the book had me in full tears and close to tears throughout the book. D'Abo grabs you right away with the story. Both characters were fun and supportive. The internal struggles of both Alyssa and Harrison were believable. Alyssa may have gotten in a bit too deep too fast for my tastes but given her inexperience with men and relationships it was pretty believable. I liked how D'Abo worked in the cards in a fun and legitimate way so it didn't seem as creepy as it could have. The cards took us on Alyssa’s sexu-cation and like a voyeur we got to watch as Alyssa got to explore some of her deepest fantasies, some of which she didn’t even know she had for herself. Harrison is an excellent guide who is both patient and demanding. If I was to have a sexual guide I’d want him to be like Harrison. The six pack wouldn’t hurt either! LOL
I've always enjoyed D'Abo's erotica novels and this one was no exception. I would totally read it again and even read the next in the series tho I was really hoping for Alyssa's sister HEA. She is a great side character that you really want to find love.
