Book: Guilty Pleasures by Jane O'Reilly

I received a copy of Guilty Pleasures from Netgalley in exchange for my review.

Tasha likes a little danger to get herself off, and that has led to her pleasuring herself at work. But when one of her fantasies comes true, and Ethan catches her in the act, she doesn't expect it to be one of the best things that ever happened to her. Ethan shows her that she enjoys a bit more than a little danger, and their shared pleasure brings them closer together. Whether they like it or not the couple start to feel more and more for each other and when something bad happens at the architect's office they work at, they have to make a choice...

I'm not really sure what to make of Guilty Pleasures, some of the sex scenes were definitely hot and they gave a slightly dangerous feel with the risk of getting caught, but other than that I wasn't all that sure about the relationship between the characters. In this case it seemed to solely be based on sex, though there was a little bit of an attempt to add more to both of their personalities.

There was chemistry there though, between both Ethan and Tasha, and in the situations they got into when there were other people around (which was basically the point of the plot) which made the story flow well, even if most of that story was sex scenes.

The writing was good though, there was no point where I was cringing about what was being described (definitely has happened before in some erotica books) and I didn't feel that it got cluncky at any point, which definitely made reading easy!

Guilty Pleasures counts towards Winter COYER, Bookish Resolutions & 2015 Netgalley and Edelweiss Challenge .
