Good read and it was up and down all the way until the end, I just wish there was more at the end. When it finally came to a climax the book was over, oh god how I wish for 20 more pages of the two characters being together. But a great read regardless. It is down by a foriegn author so I had to acquaint myself with some terms than I would normally but still a great read.

The sex scenes were hot, though they were idealized versions of sex scenes. There were just enough of the romance elements to give the story something to hang your clothes on, but not so much that you are pulled away from the true use of this story...the erotic scenes.

All were perfect examples, thus I say "idealized versions." The perfect friends with benefits, the perfect playboy, while sleazy enough to turn away from, the perfect voyeur's experience of an orgy, and the perfect love interest. Oh, and also the perfect female friends to help the love story along.

A cut above boilerplate sex writing.

Sometimes a book has a character you just can't relate to. For me, that was the female lead in Substitute. Alexia has left her controlling boyfriend and started a new life and new job at an agency represents sports figures.

Here she falls for the boss, Nathan, but he keeps finding her in compromising positions with Tony, the office playboy. Can she overcome his distaste for Tony's leftovers to form a relationship?

Alexia reminded of Ado Annie from Oklahoma-she's a girl who can't say no. She doesn't like Tony but she doesn't protest when he fondles her in the office and at a special event. She does like Richard, a friend of her flatmate who shows her how to enjoy her passion without actually having penetration sex. Apparently fingering, wanking and oral sex don't really count as sex in her world--she's saving intercourse for Nathan.

Basically I found her weak, whiny and annoying. Nathan wasn't much better, being attracted to her, but not willing to carry the attraction further. Some of the secondary characters, including Richard, Romy and Sophy were more likeable. The sex scenes were well done and the plot wasn't bad. The book is set in London and be prepared for the language to be British English rather than American English.

Overall, this was a pretty lackluster offering, which would have been far better with a stronger heroine.

Am reasonably new to this erotica stuff, read 50 shades (of course) and hunted around for other stuff, lots of it disappointing as very weak stories. Not this one. Raced through it in one sitting wanting to know what was going to happen next. Real page turner. Disappointed can't find anything else the author has written. Wondering if she writes under different names?
This is very descriptive and imaginative. It's a real rollercoaster story, lots of twists which kept me reading. The people in it are well drawn and the hero is tantalisingly brooding and slightly out of reach. Very hot! The erotic bits came out of the plot and weren't just thrown in every few pages, which made it much more fun to read than some of the other titles I've tried. It is of course fantasy land but it's a fun fantasy land!

This story bounced around on a lot of vulnerable subjects,etc abusive past relationship and military trauma but never got deep enough to explain the behaviors. I think if you want a story about a girl who lusts all the time and has some sexual encounters with every male she comes in contact with this story if for you. You truly get to repeatedly hear how wet she is. It had a nice love story theme to it but the constant wetness of her womanhood was a total turn off for me and the sexual encounters were not that Hott. However this was a free read for me and I did enjoy the book somewhat

I'm on the fence with this one. As Erotica it definitely fits the bill. As a contemporary Romance, not so much. I think my issues lie in the portrayal of the heroine. She is the escapee from an abusive relationship who finds herself partaking in a veritable sex buffet. I had a little trouble justifying her extreme sexual reactions to casual male encounters. If you can suspend logic for a bit, set your mind on Erotica, and read for that purpose, the book makes more sense.

Ok, so I read this about a week ago and have been putting off my review because I'm just having a hard time rating this book. There were things I liked and some things I didn't like so much.

It begins with Alexia leaving her douche of a boyfriend and is starting a new chapter in her life. An old friend has let her move in and helped her get a job with her as a temp at a sports agency. Alexia soon finds out that things can get pretty steamy at work behind closed doors.

Alexia is somewhat inexperienced at sex, the only sexual relationships she has had was not normal so they left her unsatisfied and unsure about sex. When she first lays eyes on the handsome Nathan, which happens to be her boss she feels some sparks or shall I say wetness from seeing him. This new job seems to burst open all of Alexia's sexual needs because she seems to get turned on by every male she encounters. One of her fellow employees Tom wants Alexia bad, and comes on to her strong and if she didn't like it so much I would say he is a borderline rapist, if that makes any since. Another male in her life is Richard a friend of her roommate who is dead set on teaching and helping Alexia satisfy her sexual needs. While things get heated at work and home for Alexia she seems to go on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and confusion.

In the end will she finally get the one she has wanted all along? You will have to read to find out.

I must say the erotic scenes were pretty hot in this book. The main thing that got to me was how Alexia was so inexperienced but seemed to get turned on by every male that came near her or every time she thought about sex. The "squirting" in her panties kind of drove me a little crazy but in all it was a pretty sexy read. If you are into books that have a lot of erotic scenes then I would say you would enjoy this book.
