Sexual Content 5/5
→ Opinion | Fun, sexy, clever! Those are the three words I would use to describe this book! The plot is terrific, the adventurous romance Victoria Vane presents is fun without forgetting to be deliciously erotic and fascinating.
Phoebe, Ned, and DeVere were fantastic – I loved the chemistry between them! All characters were very interesting, including Vesta and Diana who are next in The Devil DeVere installments, and the historical references were greatly appreciated.
I was a little reluctant towards Phoebe’s plans cause I didn’t feel how important acting really was for her and how lightly she accepted the “easy” path. She could have pondered and considered her other options before we saw her readily taking the part as a courtesan. Maybe she wouldn’t be able to go very far with her plan if it wasn’t for Ned, it left me curious to know more about her thoughts anyway. But because of her, I was glad that Ned could finally be himself by the end of the book!
The story also lacked some physical description, which is imperative for erotic romances in my opinion – I like to create their image in my mind as well as knowing their actions and feelings. I understand others appreciate having the liberty to picture the main characters their own way.
I wish the experience I had with this book would never end, and it definitely left me wanting more. I was extremely happy and I believe this title fulfilled all my expectations – Victoria outdone herself, splendid well done. She knows her story and develops well-drawn characters to support her new series - starting with DeVere, a rogue that doesn’t miss an opportunity to enjoy life to its fullest. He will, without a doubt, be a very versatile and charming character with no lack of opportunities to grow into one of my most beloved heroes. He intrigues me!
