Run To You - Charlotte Stein Run To You was not what I expected. Although the premise seems simple enough, an innocent woman dissatisfied with life who meets an eccentric billionaire for a sexual tryst in a hotel room, in the hands of Charlotte Stein, it becomes something else. The term psychological foreplay comes right to mind while reading this novel. Told in the first person point of view, Alissa does not only become a relatable character but as you continue reading there was a sense that you were her. Privy to her thoughts, her feelings, her lust and yearnings, how she views herself, how she feels ridiculous when faced with all her drama, you are given a character that is fully fleshed out with all her flaws and all her humanity. Janos, as well, is given depth to his character despite the fact that its just glimpses of what Alissa sees in him. This pulls you right into the story, you are not just engaged but fully invested in the events that are unfolding. Although considered erotica, its not as sexually graphic as some novels but this only highlights the author's talent in weaving together a tale where the words seduces you to that moment. In that sense this is truly erotica, the play of feeling, the lingering touches, the sensuality in each encounter. In the end, the romance was both real life scenario subtly blended with an almost fairy tale like ending that is as unique as the talented author.
