From here the book seems to turn into Jake's point of view from all the stories he needs to tell. Don't get me wrong. The story line is superb. It is sensual, seductive and tingly hot. Mr. Lapin is an excellent writer who is great with descriptive words while clearly defining his characters and their story line. There are some parts in the book where I just get lost. The flow of the story gets jumbled up and then eventually you figure out where you are. There are other grammatical errors but I didn't base my review on those. I believe if the flow of the book was corrected along with the grammatical errors, this would be a 5 star book for me. I anticipate reading the next book in The Spice of Life series. Mr. Lapin sure knows how to keep us on the edge of our seats with his steamy endings. Congrats for a great book!
I felt bad for Kelli right away, she tries so hard to get her husband Paul to notice her sexually and he rejects her time and time again. I thought I would be bothered by the "affair" parts of this book, but honestly I wasn't. I found that the book surprised me by telling how sex and physical attraction is just as important in a marriage as being compatible in other ways. If your partner is not attracted to you sexually that definitely messes with your self esteem which in turn can ruin your relationships.
I liked Kelli right away. I am not so sure about Jake, I liked him but I don't love him yet. At times I found him to be very alpha male and sexy when he recounted his stories of sex and submission during his therapy sessions. But I felt like he was just telling me stories, I need to read more of him actually interacting with Kelli and showing his dominance to her. Maybe in the next book. It was exciting to read how he came to be the confident Dom he is today from being a depressed overweight guy before.
The author definitely has me curious about what will happen between Kelli and Jake and how their relationship will play out in the next books. Will Jake and Kelli begin a D/s relationship, will Kelli leave her husband or just have an affair. Will Kelli realize the significance of a particular story Jake told her in the last chapter. I picked it up, went back and re-read the line twice, and I wondered "Kelli girl how could you not get that part of the story hello?"
Jake's retelling of his life and how he transformed into the person he is today were hot, steamy and sexy. They were also sweet, endearing and sometimes sad.
This book was definitely different then other books I have read recently I look forward to the continuation.
Jake seeks out Kelly at a bar and starts seeing her for sex therapy....though I don't know for sure if that's all it is. Kelly and Jake are both in marriages that aren't fulfilling and are looking for something to spice up their lives. The story is told mostly through Jake's therapy sessions with Kelly and he relives some pretty steamy sex scenes which leave Kelly wanting more.
For a first novel, Mr. Lapin did a wonderful job and creating characters that we want to love and learn so much more about. He also tells the story in a unique way from most of the stories out there these days.
I give The Spice of Life: Book 1: The Transformation a solid four stars and can't wait to read Book 2!!!
