What starts as a crush can become one’s love of a lifetime. It is the fantasy that transcends all others—
the one perfect love.

Tomboy Josie Hynes has admired Nick Markovich from afar for years, but it isn’t until her senior year in high school do they finally meet. At first Josie is put off by Nick’s brutal honesty and his offbeat sense of humor, but it is their physical attraction she cannot deny. Nick and Josie stumble into a passionate love affair with a connection so strong, separation is unbearable. Throughout the years, Together become one—one with the good times and the bad, one with happiness and sadness, one with laughter and tears, one with sickness and health — one with the wind.

Josie studied the menu, noting all the exotic fishes and fruits. Her stomach rumbled in demand. When Kitaek returned she said, “I'll have to coconut mahi-mahi.” She handed him the menu and took a sip of her wine.

“Tell me,” said Nick, “is the unicorn fish served with rainbows?”

Josie coughed and spat out her wine, spraying it on Nick’s shirt and face. She choked, reaching for her glass of water. She took a big gulp and tried to ignore some of the other couples who were now staring at her.

“Sweetheart,” Nick remarked, embarrassed by her behavior.

“Are you okay, Madame?” asked Kitaek.

Josie nodded. “Yes, fine.”

Kitaek addressed Nick, “Sir, the unicorn fish is freshly prepared by fairies, seared on a rainbow, glazed in a delicate lollipop sauce, and drizzled with a touch of stardust.”

Nick looked at Josie sternly. “That sounds divine. I will take that.”

“Very good,” said Kitaek. “I will be back with more bread and more wine for the lady.”

Josie watched Kitaek traipse back through the water. She then turned her attention to Nick, who grinned mischievously. “That was surreal.”

Both were curious to see Nick’s unicorn fish served. It was grilled with a tropical fruit salsa and dressed with coconut shavings. It almost resembled a rainbow. Josie reclined in her seat, feeling the effects of the wine and the water at her feet. It was a very good night to become fully intoxicated, not just by alcohol, but by romance. Even Nick’s obnoxious tropical shirt and silly jokes couldn’t ruin her amorous mood.

My Review:

Although quite well written, there’s just something about Livingston’s writing style that I couldn’t get into. The storyline itself was solid enough. It also gets better and better the further into the story you get. It’s a raw look at high school and the peer pressure and self-pressure that come with it. Livingston paints a picture of the world that the characters live in. You can visualise their homes and high school.

The characters themselves are also quite well developed. You get to know the main character as a friend you went to school with. The supporting cast is developed on a range of sophistication based on their role in the novel.

About the Author:

“One with the Wind” is the first erotic novel I have published. I have read several others, but the standout for me was Anais Nin’s “Little Birds.” Personally, i wanted to do something different; I wanted to explore one couple’s intimacy throughout the stages of their life and how they kept the fire going through good times and bad times. I fell deeply in love iwth both characters and don’t be surprised if you find more of them someday.
