#BookReview – ‘Birthday Wishes: The List’ by Braxton Cole


Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.

But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?


Mari and Luca met on an online sex site. They created a list of dirty things they wanted to do with each other without the messiness of dating. It was strictly sex between them, nothing else. The night they agreed to meet in person was on Mari’s birthday, but she gets sidetracked at a surprise party. Luca shows up and now her family and friends thinks he’s her boyfriend, not her booty call. That’s so funny!
I really liked Luca. He’s a sexy and decent man, and he wants more than just a booty call. Mari, on the other hand, only cares about sex for the longest time. She’s pretty rude and hypocritical, but that’s understandable because she doesn’t really know what she wants or how to feel. There’s not a lot of conversation between the H/h, and since the story is an erotic romance, there’s lots of sex.  
The story is told in first person POV in only Mari’s perspective, and I really wished I could’ve learned more about Luca.
