ABSOLUTE PLEASURE_EBOOK

 

 

What would you sacrifice to save your family’s legacy?

 

Meet Hunter Wilder, a man that is terrified of happily ever after. 

 

Hunter is used to dominating, taking control of situations and bending them to his will. He may live in a New York castle, but he’s no prince. Cursed by loss, Hunter is a closed book with an emptiness that he can’t escape. 

 

Until he meets her. 

 

Gabriella Darien may be gorgeous and driven, but her Cinderella story is more than it appears. The death of her father left her with a wicked stepmother intent on sabotaging the business her parents worked so hard to create. 

 

One enchanted night of all-consuming and absolute pleasure brings two broken souls together. With a new version of their future finally in sight, a promise kept might cost them everything. 

 

Will this Cinderella find her prince, or will they watch their happily ever after disappear at the stroke of midnight?

Excerpt:

 

Elle’s prince charming stepped forward until he was standing right in front of her, so close she could breathe in the scent of his woodsy cologne, could see the darkening of his golden eyes and the now captivating smile curving his lips that did crazy, arousing things to her female hormones.  Authoritative and Intense was an incredibly hot look on him, but this charismatic version gradually emerging had the ability to sweep her off her feet.     

 

“I’m Hunter Wilder,” he introduced himself, and tipped his head curiously.  “And you are?”

 

So incredibly smitten.  Her tongue suddenly felt tied, and while he was the epitome of confident male sophistication, she had to struggle not swoon like a Disney princess in front of him.  “My name is Elle.”  

 

He raised a dark brow.  “And your last name?”

 

She bit her bottom lip in debate, which didn’t go unnoticed by him as he candidly looked at her mouth like he wanted to devour it.  The thought sent a jolt of lustful need pulsing deep and low, settling in all those dormant places that had forgotten what it felt like to be wanted and desired.  

 

There was something incredibly magical about this moment, about tonight and this enigmatic man who’d made the decision to stop her from leaving when he easily could have watched her go.  This evening was all about fairy tales where anything could happen, and she wanted that enchanted, mysterious feeling to remain because tomorrow, her less than appealing reality still awaited her.  And she was fairly certain that a wealthy, dynamic man like Hunter Wilder wouldn’t be interested in a woman who had a wealth of issues and problems currently plaguing her life.    

 

With that thought in mind, she kept her reply flirtatious, and her full identity anonymous.

 

“Tonight, it’s just Elle.” 

 

“Okay, Just Elle,” he teased, his voice infused with amusement as he extended his bent arm to her in a gallant gesture.  “Will you be my date for the evening and accompany me to the Wilder Way ball?”

 

Determined to have fun with this man and enjoy her evening, wherever it might lead, she nodded and slipped her hand into the crook of his arm. “It would be my pleasure to be your date for the evening.”

 

A slow, sinful smile eased up the corners of his kissable mouth as he slid a big, warm hand over the one resting on his forearm to hold it there—as if she’d even consider letting him go.  “Trust me, beautiful girl, before this evening is over, I have a feeling the pleasure is going to be all mine.”

 

The dark, forbidden promises glinting in his eyes stole her breath and sent a delicious, decadent heat cascading through her veins.  Oh, Lord. Elle sincerely hope so.

 

 

 

Absolute Pleasure (Dirty Sexy Fairy Tales #2)Absolute Pleasure by Erika Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Dirty Sexy Fairy Tales series. This book is considered a standalone novel. For richer enjoyment of the series, I recommend reading them in order.

Hunter is sure that loss will be his legacy. Everyone close to him seems to somehow have a bitter end. Then he meets someone he cannot wait to be with. It is a risk to care, but he has so much more to lose.

Gabriella AKA "Ella" is a delight and a joy to be near. She cannot stand that her stepmother and step-siblings are plotting against her. Things have gotten worse since her father passed away. Can she rely on Hunter as an ally?

This was a very sexy story. Right from the beginning these two had sparks creating flame. I loved the loyalty and heat that was always part of their charm. These two characters were definitely in need of one another, and a true joy to read. To bad it was not interactive and we could not take shots at the stepmom. What a great villain!

Bad decisions book club
The Cinderella Countess (Gentlemen of Ho... The Cinderella Countess (Gentlemen of Honour, Book 3) - Sophia James

While this has a trope I'm not fond of - our heroine has retained her accent and holds herself like a member of the upper classes, I would say this would be hard to do and often is rubbish, people like to blend. Apart from that it's a fun read that I found hard to put down. (another bad decisions book club book).
Annabelle Smith works as a healer in Whitechapel and was surprised when Lytton Staines, Earl of Thornton turns up on her door... his sister is suffering from some sort of wasting disease and he's exhausted regular medics. She comes recommended by servants. When they meet the impression is ruined by the pet dog who rips his waistcoat and spills tea on him.
The two of them are an interesting couple and it was a fun read. There were bits that stretched credulity but overall it was a good read.

Cinderella Story
Sorrow (Thornskinned Heroines #1) - Saiteru S.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book via the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.


Sorrow is a retelling or to be more accurate a continuation of Cinderella. The story is told in prose poetry and poetry, designed as messages and letters sent to various people or a newspaper report.

What Saiteru S. does is continue the story of Cinderella while addressing and mediating on the questions of love and abuse as well as duty. This is done though letters and telegrams that Cinderella sends to various people in her story.

In doing so, Saiteru has combined various Cinderella variants. The story moves far beyond the Disney version with singing mice. What also makes the work stand out is the brief, bare outline that is used. It is in some ways more of an internal monologue, yet the varied letters and reports bring a different look to Cinderella, one that is not seen very often.

The frame, of a discovery of a mummy with a glass shoe, works quite well and plays with the idea of the truth. If a Cinderella exists in most culture, is there one true Cinderella idea that is being used to great effect. The not fully revealing of what happened works with the conceit and makes the story more powerful. Saiteru’s Cinderella is hardly a shy and retiring type. It is her connection to the kingdom that also raises the questions of the ability to rule and the structure of families that are not fully addressed in many Cinderella folk and fairy stories.

This is a lovely and powerful reimagining of Cinderella. I look forward to more in this series.
