“Rachel Walker, I’d like you to meet David Wright.” I still tremble when I remember those words. That day changed me forever. 

Rachel is a biracial woman from Queens in the late 1970s. She aspires to write poetry, and is drawn to Manhattan for the art she finds there. She meets a man who changes her life forever. David has a dark secret. His desires draw Rachel into a world of easy indulgence, a world of lust and sex, a world where anything goes. From a simple school teacher, Rachel is transformed into someone she would never have recognized…would never have approved of. As her career grows, so do her challenges. Is she flying or falling? Sometimes it’s difficult to understand the difference. 

To this very day, I remember the first time I saw him. It sounds corny, of course, to say “my heart skipped a beat.” But it did. Several. I do believe in love at first sight…it has happened to me a few times in my life. But this was the first, and the first is always special. He set my soul on fire instantly. I would’ve done anything he wanted…and I guess I did. 

Follow You Down is an erotic romance, which explores a woman’s personal, spiritual, and sexual evolution. Rachel faces a changing world, a changing culture, and a changing sense of self. Where will she find herself? Who will she be on the other side?

Where do I even start with this one? I was totally blown away. I didn't think that this book would be something that would be of any interest to me but boy was I wrong. I truly didn't want it to end.

Follow You Down was set back in the late 1970's.  Rachel Walker was a strait-laced school teacher that loved to dabble in writing poetry. She put so much passion into her writing but being a biracial woman in that particular time period was very hard to get her feet on the ground in the writing profession. That is until she meets David. He has his connections but that is not what draws Rachel to him. He is this handsome, wild, exotic specimen that is hard to say no to.

The thing with David though is he has some unique sexual energy that Rachel finds both intriguing and scary.  Will Rachel let go of her proper ways and take a leap into the wild with David or will she stay in her sheltered world that she lives in?

"That was a leap of faith. Another jump. Another plunge into the darkness. What would I find tonight? I had the sense that my life would never be the same. Would I sprout wings and fly? Or would I dash myself on the jagged rocks below?"

Wow, I can't even express what an amazing book this was. It takes you on a journey of lust, passion, jealousy, love and sexual exploration. I really loved the characters and the chemistry between them.  The whole book will keep you panting and wanting more.
