Filthy Rich, Dawn Ryder


Filthy Rich, Dawn Ryder
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Erotica
I enjoyed the first book, Out of Bounds, and we meet Sabra and Tarak again briefly in this book. Nartan and Celeste are friends of the couple and meet at their wedding. Nartan is used to control in his flirtations, he’s always the one directing and the one who says when it ends but with Celeste she makes it clear he’s not even in her sightline. Her body says differently though and he’s such a confident man he won’t take no for an answer, in fact I suspect he’s the sort that rarely gets a “No”. soon they are in the throes of a passionate affair. Celeste lost her sense of self with the idiot she married, another rich entitled guy like Nartan on the surface, and she’s vowed never to get like that again. Nartan admires her strength though whereas her ex hated it, he wanted someone totally dependent on him. Now he’s out of prison and not happy with the direction her life has taken.
It’s a book that has all the elements I love, drama, not sex, sensuality and passion and an element of suspense but…it didn’t get past a three star good for me. Somehow I felt everything seemed very “on the surface” – I wasn’t convinced that Celeste was ready to accept Nartan, nor that he was ready to change his ways for her. I did not like the condom issue….given his rep I’d have thought Celeste would have been more careful! I didn’t really feel I got to know either of them well, and I guess that’s why I couldn’t really get deeply into the story. It was good just not great. The danger could have been perfect for adding the drama I loved but again I wasn’t really convinced by it. I didn’t get the feeling Celeste’s life was in danger even though there were some pretty serious actions going on.
Stars: Three, a good read just not for me a great 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.
