Rules of Seduction, Joya Ryan

Rules of Seduction Joya Ryan

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance, erotica
I’ve enjoyed several of Joya’s novels, most recently the fabulous Yours trilogy, one of which I had for review and two which I bought, so looked forward to this one. I hadn’t realised though this was a short novella, at just 1651 kindle locations, and as I’ve commented before, short works rarely do it for me.
Ava and Nolan were both sweet characters, and that’s a strange expression I guess in an erotic novel, but due perhaps to the brevity of this I just didn’t get the sense of more from either. Ava clearly had some past issues that made her want anonymous sex, and Nolan was such a good friend, hot in his alter ego, but overall just a really “good” guy. He wanted Ava, but also wanted what was best for her. That sums up the dichotomy he faced, keep on playing Myth, or reveal himself. If he stays anonymous he’ll never get what he really wants, but if he reveals himself he’ll be breaching Ava’s hard limit – a solid rule to be upheld, and also risks losing what little he has of her.
Its a quick sexy read, but for me I need to know more of and relate more to the characters. Novellas just don’t have space for that which is why I avoid them. Clearly though many people do just want the quick, sexy read books like this provide, there’s currently a best seller that based around only the hot and sensual scenes from twenty erotic books, so though I need the whole story, obviously many many readers don’t. If you’re one of those them this book could be perfect for you although not for me.
Stars: three, well written, hot read but just too short for me. .

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.
