Climbing Stories

I love politics & I am a bit of a history buff. I have a weakness for romance & that includes erotic smut! I'm a serious reviewer, but I can read almost anything. A new genre or a deft writer can make a story sing.

Destructively Alluring (Allure, #1) - N. Isabelle Blanco 3.5 stars overall
4 stars for the author's voice

Thanks to La Diabla Lectura, my reading experience was enhanced by a full, aloud story-read that captured Dorian's (the hero) voice with great timing, frustration, desperation...all the nuance of emotion from a man who finds his "baby girl". Yes, I know that term of endearment sounds suspect, but Dorian calling Demi (the heroine) that was as hot as it was familiarly comforting.

This story takes place in like a day and a night, if memory serves; however, it felt like the most creative and longest foreplay that ever happened before the couple finally consummated. Surprisingly, it didn't feel drawn out, a great feat accomplished by the author though her character, Dorian.

After that seemingly 1 minute roller-coaster ride, we are left with wondering how the couple will face the conflicts of age and taboo, and this is not a bothersome curiosity at all. No. Because Dorian realistically and wisely says, "I want to explore this."

For a short read that puts you inside the head of the hero who is alpha, possessive, vulnerable and...well, falling hard and fast in love, read this story so you can laugh and not sympathize with his pain.LOL
