It made me laugh and cry.
crimson kettering
Ferrara was a great character – I always feel a good “bad” character adds so much to a story, and provides a great contrast and interesting storylines.

It was sad to see it conclude but all good things must come to pan end.

I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to read Slow Satisfaction - book 3 of the Struck By Lightning series by Cecilia Tan. It brought back the amazing, sexy, sensual and mysterious James. A man whose identity was a mystery and whose kink and dark desires brought all those hot scenes that can put Christian Grey to shame!

I got really into this story from book one (Slow Surrender) - from the moment I met James I knew his character was going to be different. Being a musician and an artist overall I knew this would make him different from many of the other stories I have read in the past. If you have been keeping up with the series you already know how much has happened between James & Karina. From their first meeting to their encounters at a sex club in London everything that had developed between these two characters had molded their relationship and strengthen it. I like how well and slowly the author brought their feelings out, it wasn't that love at first sight, but it was a feeling of comfort and connection.

I think Karina is perhaps one of the few characters I have read in Erotica that isn't portrait as the damsel in distress that has come to be so predominant in romance and erotica in general. Karina has a very strong voice, her independence is a burst of fresh air, her non-sense type of attitude made her even more likeable and her easy to relate personality was even more surprising.

James on the other hand is a lot more reserved, he slowly gets into the readers heart by showing concern, care, passion and lust which I must say is perhaps one the hottest things about him. Slow Satisfaction takes us into a kinky journey, a journey of discovery, pleasure, pain and lust that awakens all our senses and one can't help but enjoy every bit of it.

Slow Satisfaction picks up right where Slow Seduction left off. We find Karina returning home to her family to care for her mother where she spends quality time with her sister Jill and lets out some steam about her problems in her relationship with James.

James is back and more determined than ever to make things work with Karina once and for all. He’s vowed to reveal his secrets to her and prmises to let her in completely. Although it’s a slow process, he does his best to keep his promise.

I loved this story. It was so great to have James in the picture again. Karina and James are great together and they complement each other. I enjoyed experiencing their connection on the page and seeing them unleash the passion they held for one another. Their chemistry continued to be off-the-charts HOT, but it was those moments when their emotions got the better of them and they made themselves vulnerable that stuck with me through the end.

This time around Cecilia Tan didn’t pull any punches in bringing the emotions to the page. The range of emotions Karina and James experienced, both as individuals and as a couple, was what made this such an enticing read.

I loved the fact that I got to know James inside and out–the performer, the man, the lover. His every persona became an open book and I devoured it all. Karina did her share of growing up too. She found patience from within when it came time to listen to James’ secrets, courage to face those secrets and the threats to her relationship and strength to stand up for herself and for what she wanted out of a relationship.

All in all, a great conclusion to James and Karina’s journey that was at times emotional, intense and a whole lot of sexy.

The end of Book Two left readers with a rat's nest of plot confusion. Is James married?! Why did he set Karina up with another man for the summer? Will she go back to sleeping on the living room futon in Becky's NYC apartment? How did Karina's mom fall down the stairs? What are the findings on Karina's harassment complaint against her professor? A lot is up in the air, hanging in the balance when this book opens. To her credit, Karina's primary emotion is anger (at James). She's a confident enough character to know she has been treated shabbily and deserves answers and apologies, and more power sharing in a relationship. She says straight out: I do not want to be taken for granted. Brava.
My favorite part of the book does not involve James at all. Karina goes home to help her sister take care of her mom, who has a wrist spint, a sore ankle and head trauma. The three Casper women have not spent time together in years. The calm Ohio setting allows everyone to relax and have conversations, see each other in the light of adulthood and middle age, and catch up. The girl time is so satisfying.
While this was a wonderfully long book, with resolution on many points, I am sorry the series is over. Some plot moments I would have loved: a scene or two with James's mom; resolution on Karina's dad (and, for that matter, James's dad); and an HEA for the heroic, selfless Yale graduate security expert, whose brave words to his boss, James, made book three possible.

When Karina gets tired of all the secrets, she breaks it off with James. He'll do just about anything to get her back, along with her trust. Karina makes him a deal: each time she submits to his sexual play he must answer another question about his secret life. Karina loves James, but she knows he has a lot of secrets to reveal. Will she be able to handle all there really is to find out?

Slow Satisfaction is a truly deep tale that slowly unravels to reveal more than you could imagine. Just when you think you've gotten all the clues to the story you find out there's much more on the way. I was continually absorbed in the story, losing all track of time. Ms. Tan knows how to keep the sexual details new and intricately put together. The hero and heroine's sexual prowess was astonishing and enlightening. The supporting characters worked well to add to the story and make it more complete. I only wish I would have gotten the chance to read the previous books in the series. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Tan in the near future!

More About the Author

I write about my passions, which include baseball, erotica, gourmet food, martial arts, tea, and travel. I write fantasy, science fiction, erotic fiction, paranormal romance, and anything else that stimulates my imagination. My BDSM romance SLOW SURRENDER from Hachette/Grand Central Publishing/Forever Yours won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in erotic romance and the Maggie Award for Excellence from the Georgia chapter of the Romance Writers of America.

I'm the author of numerous other novels, many published as erotic romance with fantasy and science fiction settings, others published as sf/fantasy with erotic elements, some as erotica... which means I never know what to answer when people ask what genre they are. Fortunately here on Amazon they can be ALL of the above!

My work spans sexualities the same way it spans genres. I write heterosexual, gay, bisexual, and trans characters, and the eroticism runs the gamut from vanilla to bondage to transcendental magical sex.

I'm the author of the Magic University series, a four-book contemporary fantasy about a hidden magical school inside Harvard, recently re-released by Riverdale Avenue Books. The Prince's Boy is my erotic gay high fantasy BDSM swashbuckling romance (not kidding). Daron's Guitar Chronicles is my award-winning gay "coming out and coming of age in the 1980s" series. Struck by Lightning is my BDSM contemporary trilogy from Hachette. There is more in the works, too, of course!

In the erotic short story realm, I've been published everywhere from Ms. magazine to Penthouse, and I'm in many, many anthologies and the Best American Erotica series. Susie Bright called me "simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature."

I've also edited many anthologies including Women of the Bite, Cowboy Lover, Sex In The System, Wicked Pleasures, SM Visions, for many different publishers, and many many books and ebooks for the independent publishing house I founded, Circlet Press. Those include Best Fantastic Erotica, Erotic Fantastic, Like an Animal, Like Crimson Droplets, and many others, both for Kindle and in paperback.

In science fiction/fantasy I have been published in Asimov's magazine, Strange Horizons, Absolute Magnitude, and many other places.

I also write and edit baseball nonfiction under the name "Cecilia M. Tan."
