Is Taste Personal: "The Decline of Pleasure" by Walter Kerr
Decline/Pleasure - Walter Kerr


(Original Review, 1981-05-25)
 
 


Here’s a quiz on “sex in literature”. The problem is I don’t know the answers. This comes from Walter Kerr’s 1962 book “The Decline of Pleasure.” He doesn’t present it as a quiz, but merely describes incidents in recent novels and plays that he evidently expects the reader to recognize. I’ve numbered the entries for ease of response.

What do our novels and our plays show back to us? Almost without exception, an image of sex that is violent, frustrated, shabby, furtive, degrading, treacherous, and – more and more – aberrant.

Southern Pleasure by Kaylee Ryan Free!
Southern Pleasure - Kaylee Ryan

They tell you that a parent’s love is all consuming. I never put much thought into it. Not until the minute I heard her take her first breath. That little girl is my world. I’d do anything to protect her. 

My ex signed over her rights and her family vowed that my daughter didn’t exist. Now that she’s gone, they want my little girl. They’re trying to say I can’t give her what she needs.

I’ve known Evan all my life. Our families farms run parallel with each other. He and my brother Aaron have been best friends for as long as I can remember. 

What they’re trying to do is wrong. He needs my help, someone he can trust and I’m more than happy to do it. I volunteered without hesitation.

I should have thought about what it would be like to have our lives intertwined. I should have thought about what would happen when our time together ended and how my heart would feel when I had to walk away.

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione 1.99!!! Love this book!
Pleasure Unbound - Larissa Ione

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . . 

She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life. 

Two lovers will dare to risk all.

Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . .

Great Story and Characters
Intense Pleasure (Bound Hearts) - Lora Leigh

After a final bad mission, Summer has left her job and heading back home, where she’s only known as a Southern socialite. Unfortunately, the two men she left with her former life are determined she’s in danger and are following her home.

As with all of this author’s books, there was plenty of steam within the pages of this book. There’s also plenty of story to keep you reading. I love all of her series’ and this one was no exception. I highly recommend if you like this genre.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

New Release Review! Theirs to Pleasure (The Marriage Lottery #2) Stasia Black!
Theirs to Pleasure - Stasia Black

 

 

In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men.
It’s the law.
Welcome to the apocalypse.

 

Shay came into the township knowing she’d be a lottery bride. So she’d have to marry five men.


She wasn’t the naïve girl she’d been eight years ago.
She’d learned the lessons that had been beaten into her and she’d learned them well.


So yes, so she’d share her body with her new husbands.
But her secrets were still her own.

 

The men are different than she expected, though. They each had their own reasons for entering the lottery. There’s Charlie, who’s so sweet and kind. Rafe, who’s a light-hearted jokester during the day but dark and demanding in bed. Then Jonas and Henry and Gabriel, each bringing their own damage and beauty to the clan until, day by day, they begin to feel like a real family.

 

There’s just one little problem with the happy new family clan.
One of them isn’t who he appears to be.
He is a spy for the enemy.

 

Will Shay and the township be doomed before she and her husbands have a chance at lasting happiness?


Please note that this book contains some dark elements and covers sensitive topics. Any reader that feels they shouldn't venture into this apocalyptic world of sometimes harsh realities should please consider before reading.

 

 

 

The second book in The Marriage Lottery series is a sensual and exciting read that holds readers captive from the very beginning. The story starts off giving a bit of background for how Shay and Charlie met which lets readers know right off the bat that this story is going to be full of thrilling suspense and action. The fast pace ensures that readers never have a dull moment or lose interest in anything that is going on and let me just say that there are lots of exciting events that take place, events that steam the senses, events that hold readers in suspense and events that really get the adrenaline pumping. Shay knew that she would participate in the lottery and have five husbands and while she intends to share her body, she will keep her secrets which certainly keeps readers guessing and on edge. The five men, Charlie, Rafe, Jonas, Gabriel and Henry all have stirring parts in this story as well, but since one of them may or may not be a spy for the enemy, readers are kept on edge no matter how well they get to know them.

 

These strong, captivating characters are brought to vivid life and easily enthrall readers with their story, so much so that surprising twists ensure that the readers can’t determine all the secrets and who is the enemy until the very thrilling reveal. The romance itself is full of super sexy and erotic scenes as well emotional turmoil that adds realism to the story especially since nothing is ever black and white. The story is also quite intense, not only because the emotionally troubled relationship but also due to the conspiracy that these characters find themselves embroiled in.

 

Once again, I was completely taken in by Stasia Black’s story and her well-developed characters and post-apocalyptic world that I had no problem envisioning, so I can’t wait to read the next one.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.

 

She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?

Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).
