Morris decides to take sex therapist, Dr. Takashi Nakamura,
up on his offer to for a session. After all, Dr. Nakamura
knows his stuff. Tak is her best friend and her business
partner so it’s a perfect arrangement. While lying on his
couch pouring her heart out, Tanya gets more than she
bargained for when everything explodes into an inferno of
passion. Afterwards, the beautiful physician understands
that things between them cannot progress to the next level.
What she fails to see is a very determined male intent on
claiming his woman and convincing her that he is playing for
liked Tanya and Takashi in this fiery little story.
Therapeutic Relations is sweet and spicy, while
covering various issues that trouble interracial
relationships without being preachy and long-winded. Now,
let’s move on to my ‘issues’. A good editor could do wonders
with this piece. The wording and sentence structure was
sometimes very awkward, which is very distracting and made
reading this difficult at best. I’m sure I’m not the only
person who noticed that the title is misspelled. Too much
time was spent on the sex play, and no matter how hot, it
shouldn’t be counted on to carry the bulk of the action and
plot. The romantic gestures were a bit clichéd, but cute.
This doesn’t mean this is a poor story, it just needs some
polish. The overall framework is solid and the characters
have depth and identity. These are major aspects that no
author can conceal, sex, angst, and conflict aside. Lastly,
there is resolution and a tender and conventional HEA that’s
hearts and flowers through and through.
