I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but it wasn't what I got. With all the explicit sex scenes, you might expect it to be erotica, but there's a depth of emotion in this book that makes it more than that.
Explicit sex scenes that don't make you cringe, giggle, or skim.
Three-dimensional characters, including the secondary characters.
A no-way-out plot that was solved honestly.
If you're at all squeamish about explicit sex scenes or graphic language, this book isn't for you.
I didn't expect I'd be needing the Kleenex, and I had to go hunt for some. *sniff*
The in-depth emotional portrayal of a couple whose passion unlocks the needs and feelings they've kept hidden.
I've been recommending this to everyone, and Lisa Valdez has shot straight to my must-buy list on the strength of one single book.
Passion Elizabeth Dare Redington (I know, her name made me cringe in the beginning) is a widow of two years. She has come to London from her home in the country to spend time with her aunt and cousin in her first forays into Society as she comes out of mourning. Her marriage was not a happy one as her husband did not love her (nor she him) and treated her with total indifference. Passion has been numb for years allowing herself to be lead by duty and obligation. But when she is pulled from the path of a falling palm tree at the Crystal Palace by a handsome stranger, Passion's numbness takes flight. When this man looks at her, he actually sees her and he awakens in her all the need she has suppressed for years. She is drawn to him in a way that she has never experienced before and they play a sort of cat and mouse game as he follows her from exhibit to exhibit. They share glances, touches and conversation until they are desperate for one another and find themselves behind a screen where they give in to their mutual lust. Though she knows that it is wrong, she agrees to see him again though they only exchange first names.Read more ›
what the author was trying to get across.
I didn't summarize the plot here (there is plenty of reviews with
those), just some details of what I love/hate about this book.
First the good stuff. I thought the romance aspect was excellent and
a real tear jerker. Valdez really was able to flesh out her
characters and make a deep emotional connection. This may sound
cheesy, but I really felt that they were two lost souls that were
only complete when they found each other. And the end was a killer!
You want romantic? THIS IS IT! When they both realized that they
could never be together ever again.....I almost died! Sheesh! Bring
out the kleenex! The declarations and the circumstances were just
heart-breaking. And the ending? ~SUPER SIGH~ who doesn't love an
ending like that?!
And now the bad or is it weird? First of all, let me say that I'm
not at all averse to descriptive love scenes (the more the merrier!)
but some of these had me thinking waaaaaay to much -not a good sign.
I know most heroes are described as 'above' average in size (well no
one wants a guy with a **** the size of a pinky), but Geeze is this
man a man or a HORSE? Valdez I think went a little overboard with
this. Ok, so he's big but it doesn't stop there. He's soooo big that
he hasn't been able to find a woman that can *accept* his entire
size into her body, until (lo and behold!) he finds the heroine! And
the love scenes beat this point to DEATH!Read more ›
I give the book 3.5 stars overall--4 stars for creative sex scenes; far, farfetched 'appendages', bionic bunny sex occuring chapter after chapter--ridiculous anatomy of a man and woman, etc.
This book is a first for me in that instaneously the hero and heroine meet as strangers and begin having sex...hence the 'bionic bunny' title to this review. I did laugh several times throughout reading the book but not at any humor in the story but because of the outrageousness of the sex scenes and the behavior of the hero and heroine.
Don't expect any deep character development in this book, it is a very light read, a fast read and worthy of my time only because of the silliness of the hero's humongous winky (10.5" to be exact!), his over abundance of 'seed' ( his cup really doth runneth over!) and the heroine's anatomy-- her being the first woman to ever accomodate the hero's gargantuan winky completely...not to mention said winky reaches beyond the norm but clear into heroine's 'womb'.
Readers, I just have to mention this isn't possible in reality and if the feats of the hero were to be beleived well then his winky would be an instant, natural birth control tool--aborting any possible baby created with each coupling between the pair.Read more ›
