Toni Lyons is no stranger to hard work and determination. Abandoned by her high school sweetheart after the birth of their daughter, Toni is left alone to raise their autistic daughter, Twyla. Hurt and devastated by the abandonment, Toni submerges her life around giving love and care to the special needs of Twyla, and keeping her business, a car maintenance service afloat. There's no room for any other relationships in her life, however, a change is in the midst.
Nicholas Benson returns home from the war to find that his parents turned their home into a duplex. He will live in the vacant half of the house and Toni leases the other half of the house. Nick is fighting his own demons, grieving the death of his girlfriend who also served in the military. Nick begins renovating the house when he realizes he has to tear down the wall that separates him from Toni. However, from the sexual attraction that ignites in them, more than walls will come tumbling down.
Eileen, a mutual friend of both Nick and Toni, starts an online erotic-fantasy matchmaking website, Orchid Soul, and since Nick is a computer programmer, she asks him to help with any glitches. Eileen asks Toni to become a member of the site and test its matchmaking abilities. However, the site gets a major glitch and Nick and Toni are matched as an erotic-fantasy couple, and soon their nights are filled with hot steamy sex.
BETTER ON TOP, is a fast-paced, romantic, sensual read. The story has a smooth flow, the subplot is well incorporated, and the hot and steamy sex scenes will blow your mind. The characters are well-rounded and believable. I am looking forward to reading more of Dawson's books.
