From when I first picked this book up, I thought that it felt rushed. It didn't feel like the plot was given enough breathing room to really grow into something. I thought at first that it was me and I was just reading it too quickly (which is a massive issue of mine), so I went ahead and restarted the book after I was about 30 pages in. I was just curious if I would get the same feel. And I did. it still felt rushed and the further I got into the first book, it seemed to just get worse.
The conversations also felt forced between Gianni and Leah. I don't know why but they just didn't come across as realistic because they were so stiff. I could see why people really liked these two characters but I didn't get that magnetism from them that I had heard so much about. Nothing was tying me to these characters. I didn't feel close to them and I wasn't drawn to them in any way.
Throughout the entire first book, all I could think was "50 Shades, 50 Shades, 50 Shades". For some reason, I couldn't get that book out of my head while I was reading this one. That's not a good thing. It was probably because Gianni is a wealthy dude and he likes being in control. Which is the entire plot line for 50 Shades of Grey. This one isn't quite on that level of erotica but it still ran in a similar direction and that kind of turned me off of the whole series. Who am I kidding. It really turned me off. I just couldn't get into it after my first 50 thought. And the sad thing is that the diary part was so good!! I love how she lost her diary and he found it ... such a good idea for a book.
In the end, it just wasn't for me. I wish that it had been. This ended up being one of the few dozen books that I'll buy this year and I really hate it when a book I pay for isn't something that I enjoy but it's always a crap-shoot to read a new-to-me author. I'm in the minority on this one, lots of others have really enjoyed the series. It was just not fleshed out enough for me, the characters weren't mind-blowing and it ran parallel to another book. Three strikes!
Book 1: Leah works in the fashion industry in New York city in marketing, she prefers to be behind-the-scenes and struggles with her personal self-esteem. At one of the events she is attending she runs into Gianni Rinaldi and he sparks all of her hidden desires but she knows she won't ever see him again. Of course, we learn that Gianni has found an amazing journal that has him very intrigued and then he bumps into Leah Ivers, can this be the Leah that wrote the journal. Gianni begins to find ways to encounter Leah as we get to experience Leah opening up in ways she never has with Gianni as the seduction begins.
Book 2: Gianni is very drawn to Leah and begins to unleash some of her fantasies but in a way that she won't figure out he has read the journal. Leah is struggling with how much she is attracted to Gianni and why he is interested in her. Of course, Gianni just wants a physical relationship but many of his actions are leading Leah to a more emotional connection, how will this really factor into their relationship? Leah also finds herself struggling with a pain in the a** boss since she works for Gianni's competition – what is Vadim plotting? Definitely some mystery and intrigue developing which makes me very curious how this will impact Leah and Gianni's relationship. Another great installment that kept me guessing and panting every step of the way.
Book 3: Leah is finally embracing who she really is. She has always been confident in her work world but never in her personal life. Being with Gianni is giving her this confidence and allowing her to view herself from a fresh perspective. I LOVE this. It also forces her to make some tough decisions and push Gianni to face some realities of his own. Can they both find the balance needed to maintain a relationship? At the same time, Vadim is plotting something related to Gianni's company, really curious what his game is and how this will impact Leah.
Book 4: Love the depth that intensifies with each installment of Leah's Seduction. Gianni has introduced Leah into his kinky world gradually by increasing the intensity of the scenes they do together. There is also a great balance between her being submissive in the bedroom and having moments where they connect and make love without any thought to submission. I love that Leah has embraced this side to herself and doesn't hide anything from Gianni even her love. In this installment we get to watch as Gianni has to reevaluate his feelings for Leah. He really doesn't want emotion involved but is now releasing that he may not be able to prevent it. I also love how the intrigue of the two fashion houses is ramping up and adding another layer to their story through the work they both do.
