On the surface, Annie seems to have it all; good times, money and plenty of men to warm her bed. But her libido and emotions take a nose dive when she meets Joel, an Orthodox Jew with a devastating body and personality to match. Unfortunately for Annie (a non-observant Jew herself), Joel is devastatingly devout, and determined to save himself for marriage even as he relentlessly pursues her.Annie must reclaim her lost faith and sacrifice her desire for immediate gratification to claim the ultimate role as Joel's life-mate. But it isn't easy; as both fall deeper in love with each other, they must fight the passionate urge to consummate physically the deep bond they share emotionally.

This is one of those stories a reader picks up, reads, puts it away and never forgets. It works on so many levels and for such a short read, it has so much going on. I was blown away by the depth of the characters,and the incredible love Annie and Joel share. Joel is very devout, yet it doesn't come across contrived but very real and passionate. The fact that he loves his faith so much he wants his life-mate to have that same passion for it is great. Better yet, the author does an awesome job of weaving the intricacies of Judaism with real life and shows how beautifully entwined the two can be. For Annie and Joel, it's a blessing to be faithful, not a burden. And the love they have as a result of their commitment to it binds them together. I've read this story many times and each time, I get something out of it. Well done, Erica DeQuaya! I can't wait to read more of your work!
