There are life altering choices to be made by Billie, Jasmin and Vicky and while each works through with their own foibles and doubts, the three friends stay resolute in their fast and unshakeable friendship. It's lovely to watch as they grow, learning from their mistakes, from each new challenge presented to them.
I find myself becoming so comfortable in this world, with these complex and fascinating characters that one more book in this series seems not enough. Not just for the scorchingly erotic sex scenes, the clever dialogue, the gorgeous locations, the ingenious plot, the dazzling details, but because I genuinely like Billie, Vicky and Jasmin. I will wait for PURPOSE with mixed emotions. A conclusion to a memorable series, but an end to a place I'd like to continue visiting. Thank you once again, Mr. Daltrey for sharing this with us. It was a pleasure to read.
Author Al Daltrey takes us on a journey deeper into the lives of these women. The more I get to know about them the more I like them and identify with their life struggles.
I won't spoil the book for any readers but book two unveils more about each of these women and their desires, wants and needs. All three continue their search for what is lacking and missing in their relationships. This book will have you cheering on these women during their ups and downs. Book two Pain is like the cream between an Oreo cookie! You know the best part. I hated seeing this book end. Once again we are left with a cliff hanger. But this ending will pull at your heart. One click this one and I promise you won't be disappointed. Oh wait...I forgot the hot, sexy, kinky scenes! Oh come on. It's a book from Al Daltrey of course we get our dose of kink. I promise you the scenes are hot!
This series is about 3 friends, Biljana “Billie” Stevens (her significant other died and she is a submissive), Jasmin Stallworth (a police officer) & Vicky Knox (married to Andrew). Billie has been grieving her S. O. for a couple of years and wanders the earth trying to get over him. Jasmin really is a kick butt fearsome woman (yes this is edited for Amazon). (You will see why I say that once you read this book and she really is looking for love) & then there is Vicky & Andrew. I have to give credit to Andrew and I am sorry I can’t say why but, if you read this book then you will know. Al Daltrey you had me in tears toward the end of this book. Please don’t let anything happen to Vicky! I love Chad! I think Billie needs him!
Now on to important things when will Pleasure, Pain or Purpose: Book Three: Purpose be coming out? I need to find out what happens next. I am truly loving this series and can’t wait for Book 3!
These books are not ARC’s I am buying them because I really do enjoy reading Al Daltrey’s books.
I see another 5 STAR review for Pleasure, Pain or Purpose: Book Two: Pain.
What I Loved About This Book
I was anxiously awaiting book two in this series to see what was in store for these best friends. This book did not disappoint. I have read all of Al’s books and loved each one and for all different reasons. He continues to grow as a writer and this was evident in this book. The raw emotion with all of these characters was penned in such a way that I felt it to my core. I was on the journey with them and feeling everything they went through. I love how Al is able to write from a female perspective. He does a fantastic job at conveying the thoughts, feelings, issues, etc. these women are experiencing. I love these characters. They are very relatable and it’s easy to find small pieces of yourself within each character. I love the friendship these ladies share. They are truly always there and 100% supportive and that is the way friendship should be. You can’t help but to cheer these ladies on and hope they get all the happiness they want and deserve.
What I Didn’t Love About This Book
In all honesty there was only one thing I didn’t love and that was Vicki and her constant internal conflict. I get it and even understand it happens, but it drove me a little crazy as it kept going. I will not get into details because I do not like any spoilers in my reviews.
Overall I think Al has done an amazing job with this read and I will anxiously be waiting for book three. I am sad this series will be coming to a close and I am enjoying being along for the adventures of these three ladies who now feel like friends. I give this book five stars and happily would recommend this to readers.
