Review: Birthday Wishes by Braxton Cole

Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.

But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari's impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he's her ultimate birthday wish come true?

Mari was done with dating, after her marriage failed she figures she can live with some no relationship required sex with the guy she meets online.  I can understand where she is coming from, once you get burned you sure as hell don’t want to risk your heart being broken again.  She and Luca have shared their sexual bucket list with each other and plan on scratching off each item together.  Luca, is hotter than Mari ever imagined and when he shows up at her birthday party he begins to fulfill some of those sexual wishes that night. 
Holy shit Luca is hot. He can’t wait to start working on both of their wishes.  When it’s his turn I was like holy hot damn boy is not holding back is he?  Mari, I think, needed someone like Luca to show her the way sex with the right person can be more than just sex or positions, but it can be healing both sexually and emotionally as well. 
Braxton Cole made me think what would be some of my sexual wishes if I were to make a list, to share with my husband of course, or maybe Channing Tatum if he is ever available.  Birthday Wishes is the first book in the series The List and is a great start to what I hope will be a series that I will want to continue to read more of.
