Touched in ways she never thought possible, Tania meets a man who will take her completely.
What do you hope reader’s take away from this retelling of your story?
I’ve always been one of those crazy busy kind of people. I steam-roller my way through life, giving my best, and setting myself challenging goals. I didn’t truly think of the impact it had on me. It made me selfish, too. I’m not proud of that. Those ideas I had – making time for me and finding companionship – when it came to the crunch, I ditched, because it meant exposing my weaknesses and fears. The stupid jogging machine I bought collected cobwebs in the corner of the room, the parties I skipped, the one-night stands I endured. Do I have to say more?
Life was a runaway express train and I didn’t want it to slow down, because if it had, I’d see the great big holes in my life.
What have I learnt? Make time. Keep those special to you close and don’t let them go, because nobody knows what is around the corner.
Oh, be adventurous. If you don’t try, you won’t succeed because trying is what it’s all about. You see, I would never have imagined my life would have been turned around by one man and a visit to a massage parlour. It was supposed to be a one-off.
If you could have changed one of your actions – just one – what would it be, and why?
When it comes to replaying my screw-ups, I’m just thinking about so many things that make me cringe. Yes, I made a bad judgement call at work, but the one that I would go back and change was that damn letter I wrote. I should have spoken to Adam in person, never by letter. Looking back, I’m ashamed. Not necessarily about what I wrote, but not facing him and being honest to his face. Whatever you do, when it comes to the big decisions, do it in person.
What first attracted you to your love interest?
Oh my, his hands. An easy one. It was all I knew of him at first. Of course, I could see what he looked like, heard his voice, but it was those incredible hands that reached out and plucked my silly heart strings. Men are often portrayed as having rough hands, not Adam, he’s the man with the sensual touch. He knows what they can do and he uses them to perfection. I’m not saying any more, I’m blushing.
Were you reluctant to have your story told?
Yes! Seriously, why is it a book can make you out as a heartless bitch. That’s how I feel when I think back on how I was before I met Adam. Maybe, I’m being a bit harsh on myself. I’m always generous with my best friends. I don’t want readers to see what I used to be like, how I obsessed about work and slept around, not often, but I didn’t think about relationships other than for sex.
Also, to be honest, I’m a little embarrassed about the massages. Don’t get me wrong, they’re divine, but having them described in all that detail, what he did with his hands and my responses. Crikey, my story teller didn’t hold back.
What surprises you most about your love interest?
Adam? I could simply say that it’s his job as a masseur – a tantric masseur. That would make a few people sit up. However, that isn’t what surprised me. It was what he did to me in the basement of his apartment. I remember the first time I stepped into that room. My heart pounded, my mouth went dry and, I can own up to it now, I went quite weak at the knees imagining myself in that room with Adam.
What is your favorite chapter of your story?
The basement – giggles…. Actually, I loved the shower scene. It was the first time Adam showed his true nature, the persona he kept hidden from view.
What is one moment in your love interest’s life – before you met – you wish you could have experienced?
He traveled to some amazing places, took risks perhaps, learnt to look after himself, stay positive, to see the best in people and help them to heal. I wish I’d been with him then. Maybe, if I had, I might not have made those mistakes later on, after we met.

Tania Havers has no time for sex, never mind romance or boyfriends. Life as an investment analyst in the City of London gives her plenty of stress and competition from equally ambitious work colleagues.
On the advice of a friend, Tania tries out something different—tantric massages. Meeting Adam, an erotic masseur with hands that send her into sensual oblivion, she begins a covert affair, one that takes them out of the massage parlour, into a hotel room, then to her apartment and finally his basement, where Adam shows Tania his secret passion—one he wishes to explore with her.
While their erotic pastimes bring relief, Tania’s career intrudes on their relationship. Driven by ambition, she will deal with obstacles as she sees fit. Adam is about to find out whether Tania has room in her life—and in her heart—for him or whether she will sacrifice their love to save her career.
