DIRTY ENGLISH - Ilsa Madden-Mills
Elizabeth is a girl with a past she'd like to forget. On prom night her rich privileged, date persuaded her to drink to excess and take a drug before taking her to a hotel room where he raped her. Elizabeth doesn't want to be broken or defined by this, but the trauma has shaped how she lives her life now: A college student, not a hermit, but afraid to be in a relationship and limited to sex which fits her list of rules:
- She initiates it (the boy must not be too popular or too rich)
- It happens at her place
- She must be on top
- It's always a one-time-thing
Now meet Declan - a British college student, tattoed, sculpted and a notorious street fighter known as Dirty English. He's just the type of boy Elizabeth avoids. Yet how can she when he occupies the apartment next door and the walls are paper thin? Plus he takes the same english class and this shows his soft side - an in depth knowledge of Pride and Prejudice.
The falling in lust with each other is pretty convincing and the sex firstly teases, and builds up to red hot. What's not to like about a young limber girl getting pressed up against the wall by a well muscled hunk who's unable to resist her? Elizabeth manages to get past her trust issues and Dexter is the perfect mix of wild, ferral fighting machine and strong, patient sex god [sigh].
This was a real page turner [teen, vanilla sex] and the love story was tender and believable, so it brightened up my bank holiday weekend.
Forbidden Pleasure (Bound Hearts Book 8) - Lora Leigh
There is a secret club, located just outside Washington DC, where men go to indulge their desire to share their women with a selected male partner. John 'Mac' Macoy used to be a member, but he resigned from the Club when he married his luscious but innocent bride Keiley Hardin. But he can't let his kink go! Mac is haunted by fantasies of sharing his woman with the one man he trusts - Jethro Riggs.
Jethro is a reformed bad boy with a vulnerable core, and Mac plays on this while, unwittingly, Keily feeds it too. She represents everything Jed wants to own and be part of, respectability, family and Keily simply oozes unbridled sexuality - but can these two men persuade her to partake in their fantasy? Will she succumb to pleasure such as she has never known before? A sex act that she believes is wrong, twisted, dangerous? However, can her marriage survive if she continues to deny her true love his deepest desire?
The sex described in this book is fantastic, as is the sexual tension, while the depictions of the deliciously depraved activities undertaken by different combinations of the 3 main characters were incredibly arousing. As there are other books in the series, there is bound to be more pleasure to be had but this is one of the few books I go back and re-read, as it's a guaranteed panty dampener!
