Tryst: A Sexual Education Novel, S. L. Jennings

Tryst: A Sexual Education Novel,  S. L. Jennings 

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

I loved the first book with  Ally and Justice and looked forward to this. It was a good story but for me there were major issues that stopped me loving it.

Heidi and Tucker. First off they’re so in love, she adores him and he her, and then we’re told he isn’t satisfying her sexually. She wants rough, he treats her like glass. Given he knows what happened to her its not that surprising though is it? And why has this suddenly come up now – they don’t seem to have had a problem so far…Anyway they meet Ransom, her crush and Free-pass guy. His agent wants her to take him on, and at first she thinks he’s arrogant and doesn’t like him. Still wants him sexually though, and suddenly they’re all in his room where they have a wild night with Tucker watching and directing.

From the blurb I thought there would be more of that but in fact it feels to me that the whole thing is overblown, with them really only having a handful of interactions, sometimes just heavy flirting and some touching…right up to the end. I got irritated with Heidi, she loves Tucker, doesn’t want to destroy her marriage, and yet knows he’s hurt and still won’t stop flirting and pushing towards Ransom. Then she’s thinking “poor Ransom”, troubled kid, ( he’s younger at just 24) everyone warns her she’s playing with fire, risking everything, she knows he’s got some severe issues but – oh dear she just can’t stay away….and so it goes on. Tucker gave me some shocks and that changed my view of him. The only one that I really felt for was Ransom, he was so in need of love, and he’d seized on Heidi. He really was taken advantage of. They were older, professionals and should have known they were being unfair to him. I just couldn’t see all the “in love “ bit after such a short time and a couple of lust filled interludes. That’s me, others will be happy to accept it as is though.

It was a hot and sexy read but my dislike of the way the story went and the characters acted means its just a good story and not a great one. I do want to read the next story though with Ransom and Lorinda from the first book.


Stars: Three, loved poor Ransom, irritated by Tucker and Heidi’s selfishness.

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.
