Review

"Put this author on your MUST READ list immediately!"
                                                                  -- The Romance Reviews


"J.D. Lexx's Malediction is a sensual and voyeuristic ride, exquisitely and provocatively written."
                                                                  -- L.A. Fiore, Bestselling Author

From the Back Cover

Some devote a lifetime to the endless pursuit of love. Others spend even longer trying to outrun it. Between the shimmering lights of Paris and New Orleans' commercialized sin, author J.D. Lexx embarks on his latest hunt. Once content to walk blindly in the light, these days he prowls a different world, one of shadow and sensuality where flesh yields to the probing hungers of fantasy. Driven by painful reminders of opportunity left unseized, he roams, tirelessly seeking the next in a growing collection of Crimson Confessions.

 Yet these tales of conquest and seduction which have brought such notoriety are merely bait for a more transcendent prey. The one he truly stalks is infinitely more elusive, and lethal in her charms. To win her over, and write the happy ending to this unfinished story, an infamous collector of secrets must now lay his own bare for all to see. Chasing a trail of enticing exploits stretching from Sin City to Prague, every stop leads him back to the beginning...and one step closer to her.

This book left me feeling ehhhhh. I spent the first half of the book trying to figure out what I just read. To me it was on the verge of being too wordy, too descriptive, too much everything. I got lost in the words and lost my grasp on the story. It just didn't gel with me and I could not at all connect with the male character at all. I felt nothing for him, didn't care if he found Valeria or not. The scenes were, in my opinion, jumbled, and disconnected.

I loved the part written from Valeria's POV. This redeemed the book in my eyes. I connected with her, and could easily understand her and what drove her to do the things she did.

Would I recommend it? If you are looking for a totally different romance and love the almost lyrical cadence of words that takes you winding around a circular path instead of a straight path through, then yeah, this book is for you.

I came into this book with a certain framework built upon expectations derived from reading many authors: dark, light, contemporary, historical, suspense, thriller and those I may have forgotten. There are ‘rules’ built upon these experiences, which are generally followed by those writing in this genre. And I would say JD LEXX breaks all these rules, but that really would be an injustice to what the masterpiece MALEDICTION truly is, because he doesn’t break the rules…he has obliterated them and rewritten them with class, poise, dignity, and an exuberance for creating an impeccable tale.

This story isn’t merely genre busting, it’s not merely a well-written book of erotica. WHAT it is … MALEDICTION is a seduction of the soul, a true wonder of how words held within the right hands can be crafted into something which becomes so much more than a mere telling of events. My preconceptions were something I had to place to the side, to the very far side, after delving into the first page of this wonderful creation.

JD LEXX has a command of the English language surpassing not only the average erotica writer but all of them combined. His sensual use of prose wraps around you in a sinuous dance, engaging the largest erotic organ of the body–he took my MIND on a journey, and this was an epic adventure! Because even in the telling of his creation, he broke all the rules…and it worked brilliantly!

And what I loved most about this book–JD LEXX respected my mind, my ability to keep up with his far-reaching prose. I was entranced and then followed him down a path, uncovering and discovering, and finding myself more and more awestruck by my voyage into this world.

MALEDICTION is unquestionably UNIQUE. It’s erotica without being ‘in your face.

Reviewed by Donna Elsegood on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever

As an avid reader that enjoys a good story, once in a while there comes along something that captures your full attention, really makes you think about the importance of the author’s words, writing style and storyline. How it makes you feel, how it grabs your imagination and most important, how your mind is seduced and lured into a world of sensual darkness. I would never call this tale titillating; it is so much more than that. Erotic genre has a certain kind of persona and even though this book does have an air of eroticism, the sophisticated writing puts it in a whole new league of its own.

Lexx took me on a journey in pursuit of more Crimson Confessions where I discovered the voluptuous Valeria. The places I travelled to and I do say travel because while reading, I felt like I was physically exploring the destinations J.D Lexx had visited. Prague, New Orleans and New York City. Lexx is on a quest which is full of twists and turns and mystery. It is an enticing pack of tales and entail lustful indiscretions. Albeit him constantly chasing throughout this epic party of Confessions, it’s not clear whether he will potentially catch up with the one that got away or who started all of this.

“Honestly, I think it’s kind of cute.”
“You do, do you?”

The characters in this set of Confessions are all very interesting, quite alluring in the way they are described, and truly stirred feelings of lasciviousness. I was on the edge of my seat wondering where the many journeys Lexx had made to see how it would unfold. And of course, if he would find what he was looking for. Let’s face it, aren’t we all looking for something in the journey of life?

I enjoyed this story, a new author to me and I will say I will be looking out for more books from JD Lexx.
At first I found it difficult to get into not being familiar with this writing style, but once I stopped trying to comprehend what was coming next and just enjoy the story as it flowed, I really got into it.. A very sexy steamy read and the motivation and pursuit of Valeria....... well let me just say read READ IT!

JD Lexx has a "Fan Girl for LIFE" right here!

It is so amazing how an author has finally caught my attention with his style of writing in eroticism and the flair given through his stories the true way I've always loved in a novel of this genre !!!! This story captures a form of JD that gives us just so much more of him...His prior novels... I now realize, were snippets leading us up to this surreal world, as he takes us to New York, New Orleans and Prague...different parts of the world, in pursuit of one, that may almost appear "elusive"...

I don't want to divulge much more as it may turn into spoilers, but you have to read it to connect to the erotic, lust-filled, adventure and suspenseful world , along with other confessions that are being discovered along the way of his pursuit, for the grander prize...that is Valeria....

JD Lex writes erotica as I have always loved in this genre...never "in your face" or rude...Total class and poise, with an edge that makes you "blush" while you being "naughty". I haven't found a perfect read or author to fulfill that kind of desire...until now! I can't wait to see what's in store next...but I know for now, JD has a "Fangirl for LIFE"!!!!
