A Librarian's Desire by Ava Delany

When an innocent preppy girl gets too drunk at his frat party, Daniel knows he has to keep her safe. Prequel to The Librarian's Love.

Erica loves her studies. Library Science, the smell of history…it intoxicates her. But when she gets drunk at a frat party and reveals a bit more than she intends to in a game of Never Have I Ever, she finds her life of books and card catalogues not quite as satisfying as the handsome man whose attention she attracts.

The mousy librarian doing drunken keg stands grabs Daniel's attention from across the room. What a fascinating study in contrasts—one he can't wait to discover what mysteries her drab blouse and glasses may hide. And after hearing her sexy answers during Never Have I Ever, he's more determined than ever to know her secrets before the game is done.

This was a fantastic read. Short, sweet and to the point, never wavering from the storyline. In such a short story, one of the smallest I’ve read, I thought Ava Delany made the characters believable and likable. I wanted to know what happened next.

A Librarian’s Desire is a small snippet in the lives of Erica and Daniel. Containing some serious chemistry, hot public sex and a guy who knows how to work his charm. I hope this is not the last I’ll hear from these characters. As I read the last sentence I found I didn’t want it to end and was hoping for more.

“And that’s not all.” His mouth hovered just over hers as he spoke the last word. “You told me all your dark secrets.”

His lips met hers, rubbing. A whimper escaped her throat.

“Voyeurism, public sex, costumes.”

An overall enjoyable quick read. My first of Breathless Press and I promise you it won’t be my last. I look forward to reading more work from this author. From a short read, the development of characters was intriguing and well worked out. This could easily be a wonderful series.
