Anonymous love... one night stand... or no strings attached. You may have experienced one or all of these and can relate to the circumstances presented to Greer and Derek. As with all well intended plans, a one night stand seems like a good idea until one or both parties is emotionally more attached. Then that one night leads to lingering thoughts of more nights together.
For Greer, she believed one night, or a few, was all she needed. She thought she could move on until she realized her attraction for Derek was far greater than the sexual tension they shared.
Derek on the other hand didn't think one night would ever be enough. He could have extended their encounter, on and on, and on. But he too knew he had other issues he needed to return to, the excitement of the one night stand was a distraction from his reality but he had to return to his surreal problems.
In Higher Love, we learn that the sexual attraction that leads to a one night stand doesn't have to be the beginning and end of a love affair. A one night stand can lead to an enduring, passion-filled relationship.
Alexandria does an awesome job lacing this story with passionate love scenes and a couple who separately are successful and together make for a striking couple. She reminds us that a person isn't completed by his or her companion but better yet, enhanced by him or her.
