I love it when I read something from a fellow erotica author which I become so engrossed in I have to read it in one sitting. This awesome trilogy from Kitty French does all that and gets a huge five stars from me!
I read the first of these books in two sittings actually, but both the second and third in the series I read in one go each. Such delightful writing from Kitty in this series. Allow me to tell you why, for me, they’ll take a good deal of beating.
Sophie Black is our heroine. She’s married, albeit unhappily, so not looking to become involved with anyone. However, she suspects her husband is cheating on her, so when her current boss’s harassment become too much to bear, and with the help of her friend Kara, she decides to look for another job. Enter adult entertainment venue owner and multi-millionaire, Lucien Knight.
From the first moment I was introduced to him, I went weak at the knees. I gotta tell you folks, I was enchanted, bewitched and seduced all in one fell swoop. And, I didn’t mind one little bit. I’m really hoping that men like that grow on trees in Heaven because they sure as hell don’t come easy here on Earth. Trust me, I’m trying (and failing miserably, but that’s another story).
From the moment young Sophie meets Mr Knight at her interview for the position of his PA, she feels exactly the same, and so begins the most wonderful love affair I’ve read so far this year.
Kitty writes with a confident flair and her characters are so real you can almost touch them. Some of that was probably wishful thinking on my part, to be fair. Books two and three in the series did not disappoint at all.
The sex is hot enough to make you turn down your central heating in the midst of a British winter, and the romance fills the air from every single page. The cliffhanger at the end of the first book ensured I was itching to pick up the second and it follows the timeline perfectly.
I also loved how the third book involved Sophie’s friend Kara and the newcomer to the story, Dylan Day – a man desperately trying to escape his past, and for very good reasons it turns out.
All in all, a fantastic read from Kitty French, who I was lucky enough to meet at the Orchard Book Club Signing event in Peterborough the other week. Such a talented lady! I can’t wait to start reading my signed copy of her new novel, Genie…!
