I don't normally read or review Erotica, so when I do- it must be good.
Wow. Just. Wow.
Please note this is not for young readers.
Nora Sutherlin is an erotica romance writer. She has just signed to a new publishing house, and gotten a new editor- Brit Zach Easton who has complete control over her manuscript if she ever wants to see it published.
But as these two realize their attraction is too much to contain, and the book is getting closer and closer to being finished, they must realize what and who is most important in their lives.
I am addicted this book. Wait, let me say it again. ADDICTED.
Nora's character is complex, interesting and torn. By day, she a writer. By night, she is something different entirely. I love Nora's character, her struggles and fear. She is so completely human- driven by the need to love, be loved, what she's known and pushing her comfort zones. I love the balance of her confidence and her vulnerability.
Zach is a solid male lead. He harbors some deep pain, and unwilling to discuss it. He's uptight, demanding, but may understand Nora more than she realizes. And she may understand him more than he understands himself.
There's Wes, pure, lovely Wes who lives with Nora, takes care of Nora, loves Nora. But Nora doesn't really know what to do about Wes, and his innocence. Especially after being in a long term relationship with her last boyfriend- Soren.
Soren. I can't talk about Soren. You must read the book to understand Soren. And dislike him.
The sex is hot, steamy and can be uncomfortable. She's a Dominatrix by night and there is a lot of sex in the book. But none of it felt superflourious. It is an erotica book, but its more than that.
I loved the characters. Well written story. Beautiful and perfect ending.
It is dark. Delicious. Not for the faint of heart.
I had to put the book down a couple of times, to really absorb everything that was happening to these characters. And then, I canceled plans so I could stay at home and read late into the night.
If you are reading Fifty Shades of Grey, put it down.
Pick up The Siren instead.
You won't regret it.
