I’m on a roll with Contemporary & Erotica Romances as of late…. but oooh how I’m loving them!
My rating: 4 stars
Book: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen)
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Publisher: Julie Patra Publishing
**Book does have cliffhanger ending.**
**Sexual content for 18+**
I don’t know even where to begin. This book had me twisted every which a way until I finished in the wee early hours this morning. It left me scratching my head with more questions I wanted answered than anything.
Amy Bensen is an interesting and yet frustrating character. At times I completely sympathized with her and then other times I wanted to slap her upside her head. I really, really did. She doesn’t trust people (except for one… she blindly trusts a stranger she calls her guardian angel) and then she meets Liam Stone.
Ah, yes. Liam Stone. Tall, dark, and sexy. Oh, and he’s a billionaire. Yeah. He’s dominant, and completely smitten with Amy (I’m still unsure exactly why– at times her character comes across as a little boring). It’s all a little “50 Shades” but that’s ok. He comes with his own sort of baggage. His character is interesting though. I liked reading about him.
The beginning of the story had me captivated and I kept turning page after page. The love scenes are 5 stars worthy. I believe that the author has a great plot to work with and I definitely want to read the next book. Two BIG thumbs up!
