    2. Lust is such an interesting and captivating story. I really enjoyed the passion between Meela and Reed, even when Meela refused to let go of her issue and Reed refused to let go of his arrogance. The first scene was one that I really liked. How often does a complete stranger seek to offer comfort to another in a situation like that without any nefarious intent to take complete advantage? I don’t consider the kiss taking advantage. Reed’s last line just prompts that happy sigh for HEA.Overall [...]
