I love M.B.'s books and this one was is no exception - it had everything you would expect from one of her books namely passion, pleasure, plenty of hot sex all wrapped up in a great story with sensative characters.
Whilst I'm not into bdsm I get that some are, and this book treats it as part of a loving willing and giving partnership that is her fantasy - which is what the story is all about and how it backfires on her. She soon realises that it's not at all what she wants with heartbreaking consequences. This book was touching as the two lovers became drawn to each other and it took you along with them as their passions journeyed to it's final heartwarming conclusion.
Worth a credit? Oh that would be a big fat YES I 'm loving this series and I'm downloading the rest of them now. This could be a stand alone book but why miss a single book in this brilliant series.
Great, funny and interesting characters all get involved in this very touching and very sexy steamy romance and I thought the descriptions of the band, tour, groupies etc., was brilliantly written.
Worth a credit? Oh yes.
Anyone who listens to Maya Banks know that she is a very talented author when it comes to this genre and her books, rather than becoming stale, thankfully seem to be getting better and better as she skilfully handles the character's temperaments rather than just the temperature that can be reached.
This one focuses more on the emotional side of the ménage as the once childhood best friends each come to terms with the impact on their lives a ménage will make but the alternative is just too unbearable to contemplate and we then see the doubts slowly turn into deeds. Not quite so much sex - in fact it isn't until chapter 19 that there's M/F action and that continues until there's a M/F/M incident and only twice is there any full F/M/M/M action which is dealt with in such a touching, emotional, loving way that it's a tender act of love and never thought of as a sleazy act.
There's also the tension as the threats and incidents mount up by the stalker which puts added pressure on the blossoming feelings of the four lovers which eventually caused unnecessary misgivings, misunderstandings and added stress. Even when the identity of the stalker is eventually uncovered it was the emotion of sadness and regret that overwhelmed everyone and was the catalyst to a perfect ending.
Would have liked a 'happily ever after' epilogue 10/20 years later with a ceremony, kids and parenthood - but hey that's just me being needy and greedy I guess and we can all dream!
Worth a credit? Well Maya if you keep writing to this standard then I'll keep buying - so my answer is a HELL YEAH.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I usually do the romance thing...but after 50, and then bared to you I was curious, so since there is a category for Erotica why not try it. I REALLY was not disappointed! I was very concerned that this book would be some weak plotted porno like novel, but the characters had structure and depth, there WAS a plot, and I have to say it was even a plausible plot...you could feel the characters indecision, feel their angst...it was a good book, and a steamy one. I was also scared by the idea of an accent being used in the book...but the narrator did a great job! All the characters voices were very clear, and discernible. Overall I have to say this is a really good book IF you want to read something steamy about a Dom and a possible Sub, if you are looking for erotic light…probably not the book for you.
