Jo Hutchinson is obsessed with a man she’s never seen—only heard. Her late–night calls from the office to the mysterious “Mr. D.” grow increasingly intimate, until they finally become full–blown phone sex. Still, Jo doesn’t dare meet him. Instead, she embarks on a series of sizzling sexual escapades with other guys, sharing every sweaty moment with Mr. D. afterward, a passion–by–proxy arrangement they both get off on. But even as she’s charting brave new naughty worlds, Jo knows that it’s all really for Mr. D. Every pleasure she experiences—eagerly, athletically, vocally—is to please him.
Immersed in fantasy, reality just slips away—even the chance at that elusive combination of love and lust. Her new tenant, Patrick, an Irish hunk in geek’s clothing, is totally into her. And in her lucid moments, Jo knows she feels the same. Can she tear herself away from her kinky dreamworld long enough to appreciate what’s right in front of her? Or has Mr. D. ruined her for real life?
I started Tell Me More and really liking it, but when the moment came Jo can finally have closure with Mr. D., I found myself disgusted with her. I thought this erotica novel has a little substance in story, but that moment completely ruined it. That being said, Jo does not deserve even the smallest affection from Patrick. Ugh.
Jo went into sexual experiments but Mullany barely bother to explain Jo’s past so I as a reader can sympathize with Jo. Patrick could’ve have been a great male lead if not for his lax acceptance for Jo’s transgressions and secrets. Jo & Patrick’s relationship develop only in the middle of the book (i was impatient on where the story will lead me because Jo’s sexcapades is starting to bore me). The ending was kinda cute, perhaps too cute for an erotica book but it suits me fine.
I could’ve given this a 3 star-rating but the Mr. D.-Jo closure scene definitely irritated me.
