Amber Grayson has spent the years after graduation comparing the men she dates to Brian Matthers, the boy she longed for in high school.  Unwilling to give up her ideal, Amber continues to search for anyone to compete with her memory of Brian.  It is while in between boyfriends that Amber sees Brian waiting for a train. They begin talking and decide to get together for dinner. The chemistry is almost too good to be true and Amber just knows that she will wake up and discover that Brian is only a dream.  Amber’s instincts turn out to be devastatingly accurate.  With one misguided statement from Amber’s old boyfriend, Brian is gone.

Brian Matthers can’t believe how immediately attracted he is to Amber Grayson.  The two nights they spend together are two of the most erotic experiences of his life.  Envisioning many such nights to come, Brian is taken aback when he meets the current man in Amber’s life.  Brian assumes that he was just a lustful substitute for Amber.  Blowing up at Amber and ignoring her heart wrenching reaction, Brian stonily departs.

 

CONSUMED by Moira McTark almost broke my heart.  Totally engulfed in the story, I cried with Amber and got angry with Brian.  Both characters were so real to me that I had to remember I was reading a book.  Feeling the realistic emotions and pain that radiated from these strong characters, I CONSUMED this book, cover to cover, in one sitting.  It was just that outstanding. 

 

CONSUMED released from Samhain Publishing on December 26, 2006.
