Unconventional by Lucy Felthouse

Penny’s being punished for doing something stupid. But will her punishment turn out to be the best-ever reward?

Penny was caught out in the wrong place, at the wrong time. As a recently graduated law student, the brush with the law could put an end to her career before it’s even begun. But thanks to her lawyer daddy’s contacts, she’s been given a second chance. A chance to redeem herself and make her stupid behavior go away.

Which is how she ends up working in a soup kitchen, preparing and serving meals to those who are having a rough time of it. She’s not keen on the idea, and when she meets Maddox, the guy in charge, she’s even less keen. A tall, skinny, mad-haired, tattooed guy, Maddox is the sort of person Penny would normally cross the road to avoid. But once she gets to know him, she starts to see things differently. He’s had a checkered past himself, and has now put it behind him and enjoys a glittering, prosperous career as a top chef.

Maddox may have unconventional looks, but Penny quickly grows to like him, and, much to her surprise, finds herself attracted to him. He’s a lot older than her, and their lives are at completely different stages, but in spite of this, there’s an undeniable connection between them.

When Maddox makes Penny an unconventional offer, will she have the courage to take him up on it? And if she does, where will it lead?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sensation play and figging.

This is a very short story. It takes part over a day and just gives us a glimpse of two people acting on their chemistry. I am not sure that we get a good picture of the two protagonists, but for a coffee time read it has some interesting ideas to consider.

Hmmm... Normally I love Felthouse books, but this one just didn't work for me.

Penny is either incredibly naive and innocent or kind of a slut. I can't really tell. She is performing her community service because she was naive enough to let her ex-boyfriend get her in trouble. But what does she really know about Maddox?

Maddox is a strange character – he's hard to get a read on. But when he starts talking about his dominant side and Penny seems to be interested, their conversation turns towards the “Do you want to come home with me?”

Things go forward from there, but it just didn't really flow that well. It was a too fast, underdeveloped story for me.

This book was not an easy read for me. I normally enjoy BDSM books, but this one didn't flow very well for me. It was stilted and disjointed.

Both characters are hard to follow and to get a good read on.
