Unbearable Passion - Book 4: Total Abandonment (Romantic Erotica For Women Series)

 

Unbearable Passion part 4, Total Abandonment, Scarlett Avery
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews.

Genre: Erotica, Romance.

Well, its on to the final episode, where Bryce persuades Sophia to give up her escort job, promising to support her however she wants, and to get her money back from the slime ball partner she had who absconded with it all. Bryce has the funds and the connections to get things done. Once again its an episode with hot, steamy sex, well written and lots of it, with an unfolding story in the background. We learn more of Bryce history, get to grips with capturing the man who ripped off Sophia, and see Sophia’s usual confidence crisis when Bryce meets her sister. In the past each man she’s been with has taken one look at Ciara, and she knows that’s the end for them, that they can’t help but feel more for the stunningly attractive Ciara, although she’s never done anything to push that. She loves Sophia and wouldn’t hurt her but now she’s meeting Bryce Sophia’s confidence is shaken once again.

To be honest I’d rather the story came first, not the sex but then again this is erotica…maybe if it was a two or three book story it would have worked better for me. It was good but not great, though there’s the potential there for it. This way, at around 100 pages for each part, I feel I don’t really get in depth into the story line and characters, there’s so much packed into such a short space with each episode almost reading like a story in itself. I love Bryce and Sophia but feel that the space limitations mean the drama and sadness I need take a back seat, and the excitement in each part gets truncated. There is a heart stopping moment here but it’s just that, a moment, not a prolonged, drawn out part, where I really get to wallow in all the sorrow. I have to say it was a weird way to go about things, surprising her like that!! Could so easily have backfired and it didn’t really feel right – I couldn’t see the participants doing that, knowing her as they do.
I was worried about when each instalment would be delivered but Scarlett promised they’d be within a few weeks, and she delivered. Thanks Scarlett – that was excellent!! I’ve found in the past books from new authors in series or duo/trilogies leave me hanging for months – even years, and I’m now very wary of them. This time though it was perfect, and if you want to read these, I would pick them up now… part one is free and the other three are only 99p each, but the price for each instalment will be going up soon. Scarlett offers website subscribers the chance to buy new books at bargain prices so if you enjoyed this one its worth signing up.
Stars: As a purely erotica read it would be a five star but I want sex AND story and so for me this is three and a half, a very good story but subject to the shortcomings of serialisations. It’s why they don’t really work well for me, but as ever they work for many other readers perfectly. We’re all different. I love a 100,000 words to wallow in and yet my best friend says No, No, that would take her all year to read Winking smile

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 amazon.co.uk 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.
