Jeffe Kennedy ☆ 7 Free readThis book had a promising startAlthea the timid conservative art gallery owner meets Steel the tattooed biker artist who wants to display his art in Althea s gallery The problem is that Steel s art is blatantly sexual in content Even if it is brilliant as Althea tells him it simply has no place in her gallery Since that scenario doesn t work out for Steel he decides that he needs her basement to live in and work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to a way for these two to meet *Up And Get It On *and get it on Despise the myriad things keeping them apart that is I had uite a few problems with the story after about page twenty I think this author tried to pack way too much into a 120 page rotic novella type book Example 1 Althea has a man already After a uick intro to Steel she takes care of the pesky boyfriend problem within about seven pages And Steel and Althea proceed to get it on for nearly the rest of the ntire book Since Althea is such a goodie goodie and Steel iswell notI xpected there to be some spice in the bedroom Errrbasement But after awhile Althea s introduction into Steel s type of not so vanilla sex began to have an icky feel It was as if Steel became lascivious with ach sex scene I started to think of him as a dirty old guy sneering at her Georgia and the Tycoon each time he debased her in a new way Honestly he wasn t that bad It was just thatvery sex scene was a new instruction a new shock a different teaching and this chick was down for it all Althea too readily allows Steel to tie her up I can t imagine letting a guy whom I ve known for less than a week not only move into my basement but render me completely powerless and then feel all romantic and tender toward him after he has me suck off inanimate objectsin the name of art of course Ahemhad I not felt uncomfortable about the setting and situation I would have also said that the sex is HOT If that s what you want it s definitely hereThe author tries again during the last twenty pages to turn this into a deep meaningful storyintroducing her badass boyfriend to her uptight society parents and letting Steel basically change very last flaw that she perceives herself to havefrom the way she runs her gallery to the way she dresses to her interpersonal relationships with all of her
loved onesit was just way too much itonesit was just way too much It t work at all This should have ither stayed a hot fast affair or been turned into a fleshier novel with about two hundred pages to play with In my humble opinion Althea did a lot of changing a lot of crawling a lot of new things for a man that we never really learn anything aboutThough I think the author has talent she needs to put some length into a novel if she want this reader to connect with her characters Either that or just keep it all about the sex and new A Conspiracy of Ravens (Lady Trent Mysteries experiences ARC kindly provided by Carina Press via Net Galley 3 starsARC provided by Carina Press through Netgalley inxchange for an honest reviewI would compare my opinion of this book to my opinion to another Lakeside Redemption erotic novella that I read recently Willing Victim This story had the trappings of a great story I really thought Steel was going to become my new book boyfriend and he probably would have if Kennedy had let me get to know him just a little bit better Whilst the sex scenes in this book were through the roof hot the whole story itself came off as a bit cold WhyWell mostly because we didn t really get to see the characters They werextremely two dimensional and this was detrimental to the story Kennedy needed to show us these two individuals help us see what makes them tick where their motions are Instead. Althea Grant's Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad conomy and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere but she's doing just fine thank you When bad boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space his infusion of cash is than welcome But his art is raw.
