Wanton by Erica Chilson

Orbiting one another’s lives, yet never intersecting, a clandestine meeting finally pushes Opal Fischer within Ginny Jamison’s path.

In the past, in the present, and in the future, both women make a major impact on the lives of the Blended Family. They worry more about their loved ones than themselves, pushing their needs and wants to the back-burner. They themselves are the only ones in their own path to true happiness, by holding onto the debilitating wounds of the past and refusing to let go of their visions of the future.

Opal’s lifelong adage: the sin isn’t in the wanting; it’s in the taking. Will Ginny be able to make Opal realize the sin is actually in the regret of never taking what you want, what you so rightfully deserve?

Wanton is a full-length Contemporary Romance novel featuring the slowly budding relationship between two females.

Warning: a glimpse into future Blended Series books, with sensually erotic scenes featuring f/f & f/f/m.

This installment of the Blended series was sweet, touching, insightful, and overall a necessary addition to the series!

We've met both characters, Ginny and Opal, in previous books, but this story is dedicated to them.

I have to admit, I'm not much for f/f erotica – but this transcends just erotica! This is a beautiful story about overcoming obstacles – mostly self-imposed – finding yourself, and being comfortable in your own skin. Together these women are able to appreciate each other while learning to accept themselves. (PS: the erotic scenes are HOT!)

A few of the other characters' storylines were touched upon, and advanced – while others were just "toyed" with to keep our anticipation ramped up (in true Erica Chilson fashion).

One of the many things I love about the Blended series is the diversity. Wanton gives the story of Opal and Ginny, two women in their early 40s. Opal is a divorced mother and a lesbian with no experience with a woman. Ginny, on the other hand, has plenty of experience but has had no luck finding long term love. This is a romance with two adults who have life experience but aren't perfect. Even though they have issues to work through, their connection is strong and it felt like they could handle whatever came their way.

Part of the fun of this series is the cast of characters and getting to see them grow and learning about them all through the series. Ginny's thirst for gossip helps us learn more about what is going on in Fairport. Opal's friendship with Robin gives us more juice about what is going on between him, Auggie, and Isis and left me hanging for more.

I'll confess, however, that the highlight of this book for me is Sage Fischer, Opal's teenage son. Sage is openly gay, outspoken, intelligent, and strong. Sage's friendship with Weston Mason is fraught with difficulties because of their age difference, even if West looks like a full-grown adult, he is too young for Sage. I soaked up every word about Sage and West. I just couldn't get enough. I'm dying to read more about them and know I'll have a wait before we get the full story.

Sweet, emotional, funny, and at times very hot, Wanton is great book. If you haven't started the Blended series you are missing out. I can't recommend these books highly enough.

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.
