Blurb : Lustâ¦ My darkness was born in it. Her secret was created by it. My job was immersed in it. It would either ruin us or save us. My name is Caden Morgan, and I am a sex surrogate. After years of seclusion and fear-induced abstinence, Ivy Jaymes came to me to fix her. Her love of erotic books brought her out of hiding and into my office. I had done this sort of thing hundreds of timesâ¦ but she was different. Ivyâs secrets threatened my own. Her darkness paralleled mine. And my obsession for her was sure to break me. Could we heal each other with love? Or would we end up decimating one another with Lust? But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the bestâand thatâs Levi Black. But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?
Review : After reading 100s if not 1000s of books I can honestly say that it is not easy anymore to surprise me. I see a lot of good books , many very good books but rarely I find something unique. This was one of them !
I know that it is now expected that I explain WHY this book is so different from the tons of other books I have read so far, but honestly I can not explain it really. I wouldn’t even know just now how to compare it with any other book to make a recommendation that you read so often like “If your a fan of THIS (insert name) author than you have to read lust.
What I can tell you is that I found deeply and fully developed characters in this well written novel and a basically not very complicated plot. Already very early on in the story you can easy imagine the dark places both of them have visited to become what they are today. And strangely the question what really happend to them runs on the sidelines – at least it did for me. Because from the first chapter on I was captivated by the way the story was told. Without giving any storyline away it is very hard to explain my feelings. Lust is about two very broken persons, of which Cade is the one that is basically supposed to help Ivy but it becomes obvious very soon that its also Ivy helping Cade – even if she has no idea about it. The way the story is told through Cadens PoV felt so new to me that it made the book unique.
If you read/liked the Crossfire series books by Sylvia Day, the often refered to 50 shades novels or the This Man Triology by Jodi Ellen Malpas – than you might want to read this book. Not because of the hot Alpha Male, or the steaming sex or anything like that. No – thats not what you will find here – well ok – not true – some of it is in here. BUT the main thing you will find here in this book is a collection of all those above mentioned lead characters in their absolute most vulnerable moments of those books.
