Getting away seems to be just what the doctor ordered when Laura finds herself saddled with a worrisome case of writer’s block, but her budget argues otherwise.  When her best friend offers a cousin’s remote Colorado cabin as a destination, Laura jumps at the chance.  Once there, however, the words still aren’t flowing, and she is at her wit’s end.

To relieve some of her tension, she gives in to a secret fantasy when she discovers the webcam set up in the living room.  Pretending someone might be watching, she indulges the long-denied exhibitionist within her, playing to the camera with no real belief that she has an audience.  Then the instant messages start.  His name is Flyboy and he more than liked what he saw.  In fact, he wants more.  He pushes her limits, and takes her further than she ever dreamed she would be willing to go.  Strangely enough, the experiences serve to release her block, and her story starts to unravel itself, albeit in ways she never expected.

But when Flyboy wants to take things to the next level and actually meet, Laura’s world tilts on its axis and her life will never be the same again!

I am not usually drawn to stories with voyeurism and exhibitionism as a theme, but something about VOYEUR by Lacey Alexander intrigued me.  I have not read Ms. Alexander’s work before, but I was captivated from page one!  Her characters felt like friends from the very beginning, and I was easily caught up in their lives, reading as fast as I could turn the pages.

Laura Watkins is a character I identified with – a woman who has reached a point in her life where she feels stale, needs a change, but does not know exactly what kind of change.  When an opportunity to break her own boundaries arises, she seizes it, even if she harbors a little trepidation along the way.

Flyboy, aka Braden, is – in a word – HOT.  Decidedly dominant, yet with a smooth gentleness that seduces far more effectively than any command would.  It is no wonder that Laura so easily submits to his sexual whims, even before she has met him.  He is the kind of man that recognizes what a woman needs, what her secret desires are, and knows exactly how to make them a reality for her.  When Laura’s own needs coincide so well with his own, the results are combustible!

The sex in VOYEUR was undeniably scorching, but through it all, Alexander weaves a tender yet unconventional romantic tale that is guaranteed to sweep readers off their feet as easily as Braden did Laura!
