Desire - Marina Anderson **Originally posted @SinfulReads Blog

REVIEW: I must say, the name, the book cover and the blurb was what got me interested. I am a sucker for sensual, seductive and teasing kind of Erotica. The one that leaves you panting after reading it. Desire is part one of a series of chapters that tell the story of Grace a young woman trying to thrive as a theater director. Desire serves as an introduction, exposing us to these two sexy and young characters who while very different in terms of sexual experiences but quite similar in terms of desires and needs.

Grace is in-love with David, a man who is very much in control or his life, his business and his sexual appetite. While I am not one hundred percent sold on Grace’s character I like how willing and curious she is about learning David’s desires. I enjoyed how nice and interesting the story started, I also liked how different from others I read. While I am a bit taken aback by Grace’s needy persona I am also willing to sit back and enjoy her submission into the sinful secrets and promises of pleasures from The Dining Club. What I find interesting is David’s ultimatum about his needs and wants, he seem oblivious about Grace’s concerns and at times didn’t show to care much for her feelings. I understand it is important to set boundaries and at times imperative to make your expectations and needs known, David’s way of manifesting his sexual escapades, lifestyle and needs to Grace made him seem cold and selfish. Giving his needs more importance over his feelings for Grace made him seen immature, selfish and calculating.

While I think both characters will enjoy and benefit from the adventure I think Grace will have a hard time connecting with David’s life style. I like David, he is sensual and sexy, a bit deep and persuasive, and even a bit arrogant.

A good start - let's hope it maintains the heat.
