French Blue, (Study in Seduction), Natasha Bond
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I love erotic romance, but want a HEA and sex scenes that are adult – not twee, mealy mouthed ones. Some terms used make me want to get out the brrain bleach, but not here. Lisa and Olivier are adults and act and sound like it…I need a solid story too and not jst a few intimante encounters wrapped up in a thin story. I want to feel the story could be real, that I could kow the participants and they need to be people I like. I got all of that here…
This is the second book in the series, and we meet Alex Lemaitre’s brother Olivier, along with top businesswoman Lisa Archer. Lisa presents one front to the world, professional, always in control, but underneath she wonders what it would be like to cede control to another…and who best to have in charge but Paris’ top Dom, Olivier. She’s got a few months free before her next contract, and her friend Socialite Mimi has promised to introduce her to Olivier after speaking to him about Lisa. He’s got some free time too, and they agree an arrangement where he’ll teach her but they will keep to a contractual liasion, no relarionships, no romance, – neither of them are looking for that.
Well, there’s this saying isn’t here about Man makes plans and God laughs…and that’s just what happens. Lisa thinks she’s being clever, having sex and fun, learning what really works for her without risking her heart…but of course that rarely works, and she finds herself getting very confused about how she feels, and wondering if Olivier could feel the same, or if she imagines the heat between them or is mistaking it for more than it is..
I love this type of story, romance wrapped up in hot, erotic and sensual sex, no icky, squirmy scenes, (sometimes the scenes and language used by authors when writing sex scenes makes me cringe, and is so juvenile sounding) but proper grown up ones, where the action is tantalising and erotic, racy and risque, and we can see just how turned on both characters have become. Life is never controlled as Lisa finds out, Olivier has secrets and she’s like a cat, turning every corner to uncover them. Olivier thinks he’s in control too and is unsettled at losing what he values, his famous self discipline. A great story, and a HEA which I love.
Stars: Four, a sexy, erotic, steamy read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
