A Fun, Spicy Read with Representation!
“You’re the kind of Woman who should come with a warning label.”
I wish I knew where I saw “Knot My Type” by Evie Mitchell recommended so that I can send them 1000 thank yous! I have discovered that I am a sucker for illustrated covers that this one might be my favorite. I was immediately drawn in…(get it?!) and I am so glad that I was!
Frankie is a sexologist with a podcast that is dedicated to breaking down stigmas related to sex and relationships. She receives a question from a listener about safe and accessible rope play, but despite her abundant expertise that is not a subject that she is schooled in. She takes it upon herself to find a skilled Rigger to assist in her knowledge journey. That is where Jay comes in. A friend of a friend who knows his way around ropes and is willing to help Frankie get the experiences she needs to provide a response to her listener.
Once they get into their first scene together I fell in love with Jay. I’ve claimed him, he’s mine. He was so sweet with Frankie and while his considerations for her physical limitations and comfort level are to be expected in those kinds of scenarios, there was a chemistry between the two of them that pushed it from a simple demonstration to fireworks!
There was a certain scene in this book that stood out as something that I think should be normalized in romance books. Frankie is in a wheelchair and has specific needs that need to be done before and after intimacy to ensure that she stays healthy. Because of her condition she is aware of what intimacy looks like for her and she has a very open and upfront discussion with Jay about what that may look like should the two of them get to that stage. I appreciated that this scene was included because there are many people just like Frankie who have different considerations that need to be accounted for during sexy times, and having that verbalized doesn’t detract from the spice level.
Apart of from the chemistry between Frankie and Jay, I loved that while there were moments of conflict, they were not drawn out and were resolved fairly quickly. Sometimes you just want a book that that feels easy and like you are reading about sane adults and that’s exactly what this felt like. Frankie and her friends are girls that I would 100% want to hang out with and I am so excited that we will get to meet them in future books. Jay is a contender for one of my favorite book boyfriends, he is sweet, spicy and just a touch damaged, but easily put back together by his favorite sexologist podcaster.
I have already declared to any who will listen that Evie Mitchell is one of my new one-click authors if “Knot My Type” is any indication of what to expect in her other books. If you are looking for a fun spicy read with representation our romancelandia desperately needs please do yourself a favor and pick this one up immediately!
