Restraint - Charlotte Stein Holla! That was one scorching hot hook-up story. Loved the sexually repressed hero and the dirty-talking, sexually aggressive heroine. Stein's stream of consciousness style of first person narration really seals the deal, though. It shows how Mallory seems to be figuring all of this out as she goes along, drawing the reader into the delightful insanity that is a new romance.
