Dangerous Pleasures [Small]

Book: Dangerous Pleasures
Author: Bertrice Small
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Romance - Erotica

Review: A widowed mother of 5 children ranging from ages 4 to 17, Annie does not have time for herself. She has not moved on from her husband's death two years ago and she is financially strapped. When she wins a free trip to an exclusive spa in town, she is able to relax and rejuvenate. Before long, Annie is offered a part-time job at the spa with a high salary and perks that seems too good to be true. She works her way up the corporate ladder for the betterment of her family, while exploring her sexuality along the way.

After reading and enjoying a previous book by Small, I was expecting something similar in the ways of a love story with some virtual reality fantasy. Instead, this was an uneven book where I constantly scratched my head saying "this book has jumped ship." The situations were ludicrous (even by erotica standards) and the main character had a complete personality change as the book progressed. Dialogue was stilted and seemed forced. Overall-this was a terrible book.

Book Junkie's Grade: D
