I opened this book to start reading, by the time I got to the 10th page I knew I was hooked, by the time I got to 37% I was so engrossed it the story that I lost all track of time.
I emailed SJ Molloy to tell her. She says she gets nervous when her book went out 'out there' in the hands of other peoples, I understand that a lot having read alongside Indie authors for a while now. Putting that aside I cannot allow it to sway me from the actual book and story telling though.
My email told her I LOVED it, I really did love this book.
The flashbacks that Lexi got even in moments of tenderness what heart wrenching. The dialogue was great in the book, kept me really entertained between the girls before she left for a trip. Very entertaining characters, very real life like people. Lexi has a lot to contend with from her past, awful things. And every now and again throughout the book we took a glance of some of her sufferings when being brought up and about her mother and brother. It was glimpses that made me continue to read, always wondering when the full story would be revealed.
If I had any downfall in this book, it was to say that Lucca is just a little too perfect.
The book leaves you with a cliff hanger. It goes slightly into the next read, so now, I am hanging on the edge of my seat wondering ......what next!!!! I really NEED the next book.
SJ, if you are reading this, I NEED IT!!!
From the Author
This is the second edition of Lussuria. I first published Lussuria in November 2013 and since then, I decided to go back and re-edit it. Initially I was looking to amend grammatical errors, inconsistency with dialogue, and American/English spelling. After long discussions and several talks with my editors, I decided to revisit Lussuria and work on a developmental edit based on their critique and advice to ensure the plot was flawless.
This means I have made some alterations to the plot in the middle of the story in order to add extra reasoning and explain some of the main characters actions and thoughts.
I have written extra flashbacks, bonus scenes, and two additional chapters which were not featured in the original version. I'm extremely grateful I've had this opportunity to re-write and rebrand with a brand new book cover as well and give Lussuria the focus, spotlight, and attention it deserves.
Thank you, I hope you enjoy it and welcome to the Luminara Series. SJ Molloy.
