From the Desk of Donna Edith…
My services are unconventional. My clients come to me with needs and I match them to other clients with needs of their own…
Promising young architect Killian Fitzroy: Driven, clever, eager to prove himself. Starved for sex, though he’s come to me for professional assistance, not personal. Needs: Someone unique, creative and fast. An artist with a feminine perspective to breathe life into a house he’s built.
Aspiring scenic designer Vessa Ratham: Sensuous, spontaneous, but secretive. Recently returned to Vermont armed with an art degree that qualifies her for little more than waiting tables. Needs: An opportunity to shine.
Yes, Killian and Vessa will satisfy each other nicely—in more ways than one.
Let me start by saying that Erotica is not exactly my go-to read… yeah, I enjoy my New Adult Romances, and I do like sexy scenes in my books, but I’m not always sure of purely erotic romances. But this book really surprised me, because I liked it SO MUCH!!!
The writing is kind of beautifully lyric, and Kira A. Gold sure knows her stuff in terms of interior design, but I have to admit that all those descriptions were a bit lost on me – I couldn’t even place half of the colors talked about here. But the way she described the feelings and interactions between the two main characters was lovely and I was gripped from the start.
About the characters, oh my, I ship Vessa and Killian so hard!!!! They both deserved better than what life gave them, for sure, and I liked to see how their relationship developed slowly but surely, and I liked that it wasn’t just about the sex… oh no, they were so honest with each other, and they shared so much, it was heart-warming.
The character development was amazing, I was as happy as Killian when Vessa started to use sentences that started with “I” and I was so proud when Killian finally stood up for himself at work. They made each other want more out of life, while being so supportive of each other, and that’s always great to see in relationships. Don’t get me wrong, the sex was all kinds of HOT, but all their scenes together were amazing, even if they were fully clothed.
I adored the secondary characters, and I especially liked how much weight they had in the story, because sometimes erotica forgets that life isn’t confined to a room.
Even though there isn’t much plot in this book, it does exist, and I liked it. I liked to see Killian’s house transform, and Vessa’s life transform along with it. I liked her family, and I loved that despite everything her father was so proud of her.
I honestly loved this book and I can see myself reaching for other books by Kira A. Gold.
