Book Review: Whiter Than White by G.G. Carver

Elena White is quietly moving through her mundane life, stuck in the perpetual London rat race. Her job is meh, her boss is a mega bitch and she has no social life whatsoever. But a chance meeting with an old school acquaintance starts to change everything. Jasmine suggests she does something completely out of her comfort zone and join a ridiculous online dating service. While her first dating experience is a complete disaster, it leads her to Conrad Bailey. Conrad is gorgeous, sweet and sexy but has his own slew of issues he is dealing with. Can a few nights of passion turn into something more between them?

I love books that are set in London. Perhaps because I have never been there and I like to imagine the city in my mind. And I do adore those delicious British accents. Whiter than White sucked me in from the get go. Let me explain what happened:
  • 8:00am - I start reading at the bus stop
  • 8:15am - My boys get on the bus and I head back to the house. Once the car is off and I am all alone in the cool, quiet garage, I decide to sit and read for a few minutes. 
  • 10:45am - That's right, I said 10:45!! I spent 2.5 hours completely immersed in Elena's story and totally oblivious to time or the rest of the world. Or the fact that I was still sitting in my minivan.
While Elena is meek and mild at the start of the story, as her love affair with Conrad continues we see her grow stronger. More confident in herself, she starts to stand up for herself more at work and she meets Conrad head on in the bedroom. I loved reading her journey of self discovering and to watch her finally come out of her shell. And the love scenes between these two were hot and steamy - Conrad can have quite the filthy mouth when he wants to!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish and I am looking forward to more from new author G.G. Carver in the future!

Favorite Quotes

"You have such a dirty mouth. I'm not sure if I shouldn't give it a damn good fucking just to teach it a lesson"

"I don't care how  you do it - hand, mouth, pussy, or that succulent arse of yours - just make that thing go to sleep."

Marianna's Rating:

**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Title: Whiter than White
Author: G.G. Carver
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica
Life is a rat race, and Elena White is stuck on the treadmill. She's been living on autopilot, a slave to the 9-5 routine - until a chance meeting with an old school friend serves as the catalyst that changes Elena's life in a way she could never have imagined.

Dazzled by her friends self assured confidence, Elena makes an innocent attempt to break from the monotony, and the repercussions send her on a roller coaster of emotions, smashing predictability to pieces, leaving her life anything but predictable.
