PROTECTING PORTIA by Pavarti K Tyler is the 2nd novella in The Sugar House series and it is not one to be missed. The writing is clean, sexy and downright hot as Hadies. I was surprised on how fast I picked up on the story line and how easy it was to follow what was happening with all the characters since I had not read the 1st novella SUGAR and SALT.
Jackson and Protia are the perfect blend of brokenness and strength. I found it refreshing to read about such strength in people that should be completely broken. What was most surprising was that the weak one in the relationship was not really who I thought it to be. Inner strength and finding the truth in the reality of the situation was a fun exploration.
PROTECTING PROTIA is a great read that I would most defiantly recommend. It is erotica and contains lots of different scenarios including F/F/M. The only thing I found wrong with PROTECTING PORTIA is that I wanted more from all the storylines. I will most defiantly pick up the 3rd book in the series due out later this year.
PROTECTING PORTIA by Pavarti K Tyler receives 4 out of 5 Platypires!!
TEXAS HUGS and HAPPY READING!!!
Tyler also deals with the horrific things that happened to the characters in the past in a dignified manner. Although the events are discussed in detail, she doesn’t go into detail about the horrors themselves – letting the reader fill in the details without offending anyone.
Jackson was a great character. He has a lot of issues and struggles to deal with them. His growth as a person was well written and interesting to read. Portia also experienced character growth in an unusual but believable manner. I enjoyed reading about the other characters as well. It will be interesting to read the next installment and find out what happens to the rest of the cast. Considering the story and the background of the characters, I feel that Tyler could have easily made the novella into a full-length novel.
I recommend this book to erotica readers that are looking for more than just sex.
There's enough here to let you follow the story without having read the first book, Sugar and Salt, but leaves you wanting more. It's an intriguing, well-layered story, full of interesting characters. To me the sex was a distant second to the story.
Jackson's angst over Portia got to be too much after a while, sounding like a broken record that never got changed. Portia tries to break him out of his malaise by taking him to an S&M room where she hooks up with another woman for some fun. Jackson also enjoys the second woman but still can't bring himself to touch Portia. So some random bimbo looking to get used for sex is good enough for Portia but he isn't? Whatever. Ironically it's his self-loathing that leads to a situation which finally changes things for both of them.
Caitrin and Donovan were the best part of the book. Their own dilemma of whether or not to be lovers or just friends felt real and the tension between them palpable and fit to bursting before it finally does.
The sex was also good- charged with emotion, passionate and steamy. To me, except for Jackson's tween girl angst it's a good read that makes you want to pick up the first book. And even the third.
Portia is the assistant at The Sugar House, a high-class brothel catering to New York’s elite. Jackson is her self-appointed bodyguard. Jackson is madly in love with Portia, but is convinced he doesn’t deserve her. Portia has had enough of him thinking she is made of glass and keeping her up on pedestal and boy, when she sets out to prove she’s recovered from the hard life she first had when she came to America and he quite literally rescued her, she does it with a vengeance. Sparks fly in and out of the bedroom, as well as in a few other places I’ll leave you to guess about.
To say this book had me all hot and bothered would be a major understatement and I loved the storyline of the romance, after all, who among us can’t identify with being in love with someone we feel we don’t deserve. This story had it all as far as I was concerned and I can’t wait to read more books from the Sugar House series.
