Elodie Parkes has given us two tales of instant attraction that can bloom into something more in Love at First Sigh. The first story is about Matt and Emma who form an instant connection on a beach holiday. After some frisky behavior in the swimming pool, Matt and Emma become inseparable over the course of the vacation, leaving Emma craving for the things he does to her. Although this is a very short story, Parkes produces amazing chemistry in just a few lines and lets us see a strong bond that developed during what was supposed to be a brief sexual fling.

The next story involves Sara and Griffen. She needs tons of work done on her house and he is the man to do it. But in Handy Hubby Hire Sara is definitely in Love at First Sigh as is Griffen from the moment they set eyes on each other. While they satisfy their lust for one another instantly, it takes time for them to get beyond the awkwardness of being strangers slaking their desire. Elodie Parkes is brilliant at illustrating the push and pull of their burgeoning feelings while continuing to succumb to their lust. In just a few short pages she was able to bring out hot love scenes, deeper emotions and insecurities to create a full story.

Love at First Sigh is a great fun day at the beach type of read. There are plenty of amazing love scenes, witty banter and enough lust to set the pages on fire. Short, sweet and to the point is what these stories are, but they are truly memorable.
