When I’m writing an erotic romance, I need to read erotic romance. Good – and preferably great – erotic romance. I was very happy, therefore, to finally take SWEET PERSUASION by Maya Banks off my to-be-read list.
This was my first Banks novel and it wont be my last. Serena is a strong heroine, which makes her fantasy of wanting to be a sex slave hard for her to believe. Fortunately Damon, a man more into reality than fantasy, is there to help her. In addition to a great love story and fiery sex scenes, I was very moved by Serena’s dilemma around the importance of fantasies and fantasy fulfillment. Is it a good thing? Or does it just make you realize what you don’t have when the fantasy ends.
This book stands alone, but it is the second in the “Sweet” series, the first being Faith’s story. According to Ms. Banks’ website: Book 1:Sweet Surrender.
Book 2: Sweet Persuasion
Book 3: Sweet Seduction
Book 4: Sweet Temptation
Book 5: Sweet Possession
Coming Soon! Book 6, Sweet Addiction, will be releasing April 2012.
Fans of erotic romance will not be disappointed by this book. I certainly wasn’t and will be looking for more by Maya Banks in the future.
