Can a little black dress change everything in her life?
Magazine editor Jane Avery spends her nights alone with Netflix and Oreos – until the Dress turns her loose. Suddenly she’s surrendering to dark desires, and New York City has become her erotic playground. But what began as a fantasy will go too far… and her next conquest could be her last.
In this BookShot, James Patterson ventures outside the genres for which he is known, waltzing onto a more romance/erotica pathway.
Jane Avery is living the typical a thirty-five year old divorcée life, at least in her eyes; a slave to her work whose social time is filled with cookies and binge watching television. When she purchases a dress, black and slinky in nature, she finds herself filled with new confidence. While the dress does not possess any magical power, per se, Avery is pulled into a level of confidence she lacked up to that point. This confidence is primarily that of no strings attached sexual encounters with men, most of whom she has never met and all of whom will not get a second chance to unzip her. Avery’s confidence reaches a climactic point when she visits a sex club and finds herself drawn to a man whose intrigue matches his prowess. However, after taking him back to her apartment, which she has vowed to never do, she finds that she may have bitten off more than she can chew.
When she doesn’t show up for work the next day, her sister goes to her apartment and with the help of the landlord, gains entry and finds Jane, naked and handcuffed to a radiator.
Jane rethinks the her behavior and decides that from now on she will be more careful. END.
It was a pleasant read but I thought the ending could have been better.
She’s been working at the newspaper for five years and she hasn’t had a single byline. She’s sick and tired of doing research and getting coffee. So when Alexa finds out that one of her friends is attending a sex party, she begs to tag along. Alexa has never done anything wild, but for the sake of getting a good story she’ll do whatever it takes, and writing about the underground group sex scene would definitely get attention. The only thing Alexa doesn’t expect is that she’ll meet a man at the party, a man who doesn’t seem like he belongs there either.
Book One was free and, of course, the end was a semi cliffhanger so I HAD to buy the complete set, which consists of four mini books. I say “mini” because they are less than thirty pages each.
Anyway, the story line is not new but Alexa and Luke had a great chemistry so I wanted to see where the author would take them. Where she took them was to a predictable HEA by ways of a pretty boring relationship . I was pretty disappointed because usually books by Lucia Jordan are steamier than this one.
Oh well, live and learn. I’m sure it won’t be the last time I’m pulled into a storyline and shell out money for the other books.
Discovering a new form of independence and self-confidence Alice not only decides to explore her newly granted membership to the Dark Alley Club, but also her own secret desires.
Bound to secrecy by the club rules Alice gains not only a new perspective on her life, but also her best friend’s situation.
Plus, there are still so many things to find out: Who’s King of Diamonds? Will she meet Poseidon again? And who has asked her to meet him in the Club house? One of the two, or someone else entirely?
This is the second book in the Dark Alley series and deals with Alice/ Belladonna’s next adventures at the Dark Alley. The main focus is the change between the very normal Alice and her new persona, Belladonna. When she puts on her mask and enters ‘Dark Alley’ she becomes a very different person, a very darker person.
This trip into The Dark Alley was more adventurous than the last one, so, if you like some soft BDSM with intriguing sex scenes then this is for you.
Newly single and self-confident Alice has recently decided that she doesn’t need a man to feel complete, if it wasn’t for the one activity where a man can come quite handy.
On a girl’s night out that was bound to be embarrassing and boring, since every girl of her clique is a mommy or about to become one, Alice makes a lot of interesting acquaintances and thanks to one of them she receives a mysterious invite to the “Dark Alley”.
Too curious to heed her best friend’s warnings, Alice heads out to end up having, hot, sizzling sex with a faceless stranger.
On a girl’s night out, Alice decided to make new friends and have fun. And see where this fun gets her.
Alice – who’s in her thirties, and just broke up with her boring boyfriend of four years. Her circle of girlfriends are all married with kids already, and now her best friend Bianca is heading that way too….. Alice feels all alone and a bit sorry for herself… That’s when she meets this mysterious stranger in a bar…they don’t talk much, but she’s intrigued…and a bit later she gets an invitation to an even more mysterious club: DARK ALLEY … and that’s literally what this is – a dark alley – where club members go to have anonymous sex. That’s just what Alice was looking for at this moment in her life….
This series follows Alice through all her Dark Alley adventures… will there be a happy end…. maybe with that first mysterious stranger??? Who knows …
It has all you can wish for in an erotica book. A self-confident, independent woman, who knows what she wants and an anonymous sex club in a dark alley allowing for your little, dirty fantasies come true on safe terms and ground. This book can be read as a stand-alone, although it is the first in the Dark Alley multi book series, and I must admit that I am hooked. So many characters are skillfully introduced and yet I am left wondering who the mysterious man is that invited her, was he the first man in the alley? Was he the second or was he on the other site of the street?
I have read books one through four and book five will be released November 17th. Can’t wait. I believe there is going to be a total or eight books in the series.
Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.
He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.
Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.
Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.
This was offered as a Free Digital Book and I enjoyed it so much that I have invested in the rest of the series, which I will tell you about in later posts.
This book is sinfully delicious fun. Very erotic, dirty steamy sex scenes. I only wish that Woolf hadn’t treated Callie so much like a naive innocent when she really wasn’t . He walked around thinking he always knew what was best for her – and that got on my nerves a bit. She stood up to him a little, but his alpha attitude was a little much at times.
However, I’d still recommend book. Bridger, Woolf’s best friend and partner, made the book extra special. You’ll have to read it to find out why.
