Product Description

Diane and Zeke have one tragic thing in common—they’ve both lost their spouses. Despite years of group therapy, neither has been able to move on with their life. So when Zeke suggests a one-night, no-strings fling, Diane decides she has nothing to lose. It will take a passionate evening to reawaken desires, fantasies and sexual pleasures they’ve long forgotten. And before the sun rises, they’ll discover letting go isn’t as bad as it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a mighty fine man 25 Nov 2011
By S. Richards TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
No Strings is a short read, about thirty pages, but was it hot and sexy. And more than that, it had so much feeling and emotion behind it. For such a short read, I became really invested in this couple. Zeke and Diane are two lost souls, striving to recover from the loss of a loved one, just two people hurting and in need of love and comfort. And while I liked Diane very much, Zeke was the one who demanded all my attention and the one I fell in love with.

Zeke is that tatted, rough around the edges bad boy that gets me every time. His dirty talk and rough exterior mask a very vulnerable man so full of longing and hurt. Along with the incredibly hot sex and that take control attitude in the bedroom, it is Zeke's vulnerability that pulls me in, and it is what haunts me. He is just so unhappy, living this life of limbo, with bitterness and resentment as companions. Then along comes Diane, and he takes this one chance to feel alive and connected to something besides pain.

I was expecting to read a quick bite of erotica and to get hot and bothered by it, but I wasn't expecting to meet one unforgettable hero. I only hope the author gives Zeke a longer story. Zeke deserves one, and I personally feel that he requires it. There is so much more here to explore with this special hero- his story, his torment, the decisions he will have to make.

There is a certain bittersweetness at the ending of this short story, but given the very solid connection these two characters made, I feel there is a real hope for them. I really want that for them, and I especially want a devoted love for Zeke, a love that makes him whole. I actually can't get him off my mind. I'm wondering what will happen to him, wondering what his story will be after that final page.

What a man Zeke is.

Diane and Zeke have one thing in common-they have both lost their spouses. Despite going to group therapy, neither has been able to move on with their life. So when Zeke suggests a one-night, no-strings fling, Diane decides she has nothing to lose. It takes a passionate evening to reawaken desires, fantasies and sexual pleasures they have long forgotten. When morning comes, they discover letting go isn't as bad as it seems. Zeke hopes that maybe in the future he can take his fantasy with Diane and make it into reality and discover that the important thing for both of them is to live.

Not often that a short story can grab my interest so fast but this one did. A great read, powerful writing and a terrific story. I am looking forward to reading Aline Hunter's next book Make Me Shiver.

Good book cover!

Well worth 5 stars.

What a man Zeke is. Like a diamond in the rough, very much flawed and gritty and unpolished but still intrinsically beautiful and special. I loved this short story and this hero. Both are completely hot, sexy and raw with emotion and feeling. I warn you that after you've read this story, you'll be left thinking of Zeke, wanting to know more about him, and wanting him to have the happiness he deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot, quick read! 29 Nov 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Just like it says it's a quickie and I for you enjoyed it. I really felt for the characters in this story because they have lost loved ones and are having a hard time moving on. Zeke however feels that Diane needs a little something to get her in the right mindset to try to live her life and straight out lets her know what he thinks she needs. Yeah I think you know what I'm talking about. He doesn't hold back and I love a dirty talker. Diane is a little shocked at first but once she realizes that this is what she needs, she really begins to enjoy herself.

Aline Hunter does a great job of conveying the characters emotions into words. I was very satisfied with the storyline at the conclusion of this story and felt that the characters had reached the same type of conclusion with their lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Strings delivers everything I want in a quickie! 2 Nov 2011

Format:Kindle Edition
A very hot, emotional read that definitely leaves you wanting more from this engaging couple. Ms. Hunter succeeds at giving us a quick taste of strong yet emotionally flawed characters and how they take the first step toward embracing life after tragedy. I look forward to the author revisiting their lives in a full length novel next year! 4.5/5 stars

I enjoyed the story. Very romantic but extremely short and very bitter sweet. Wanted more of HEA, didn't get it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Tease... 29 Oct 2013

This is a very good short story. Aline Hunter gives us a very tantalizing tease of Zeke and Diane' s story. A full length novel is on the way. Very recommended. Happy reading!
