Again i’m drawn to a book based on the cover art and this series didn’t disappoint. The one thing that I’ve learned is that there are quite a few erotica authors that do these mini-books for a series – like maybe a chapter or 2 so there are 6+ books for the whole story that get you through it in just a couple chapters per book. each story was about 50-60 pages so i guess all in all the story piece of this 8 episode series was roughly 300 pages
so in this story, we’re introduced to Francesca who is 23, an artist and who just won a commission to paint a piece of art that will hang in the lobby of Noble Enterprises in Chicago. The CEO is Ian Noble, a young thirty-ish handsome Brit that has this ability to draw people with with his raw sexuality and manliness.
so that first night when they meet at a reception being thrown in Francesca’s honor, of course she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. She agrees to paint the art in a studio in Ian’s penthouse and of course there’s a level of tension and heat in the air around them that just draws one another together.
Francesca is the ultimate innocent – being a virgin of course yet we learn that she was quite overweight when she was growing up which means that Ian has his work cut out for himself in teach her both about all things sexual and about confidence.
The story takes us to Paris and back, through eroticism, personal growth, a bit of BDSM and lastly some romance. The question here is whether Francesca will come to terms with who she is, make things work out in her personal life both financially and with her relationships and if anything will ever work out between Ian and Francesca…sexually of course.
I really enjoyed this series since the relationship development is pretty good – we not only get to see the interactions between the 2 leading characters, but we get the back story a bit from Ian’s side – why he is the way that he is, what his family is like and how he’s come to his stature. That’s something that we don’t always get that i’m pleased to see.
all in all- i recommend that you check out this series and the good thing is that you can download all 8 books so that you can read them in immediate succession. i had a nice day yesterday getting through it all and i’m kind of a little sad to see it over.
