Erotic Romance from Maya Banks. Three interrelated stories featuring some D/s or menage. I'd read and enjoyed Sweet Surrender by the same author, and high expectations of this one. I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm sorry to say that I didn't care for this one. The two heroines featured: Kit and Mia are both really young, beautiful, wounded, and in some way unable to take care of themselves. The three men are gorgeous, Dominant and one dimensional, and of course know exactly what the lady needs. The author needs to words other than "mine," and "Baby." The sex scenes are super hot, scorching. The book is probably fair, but I didn't like it.
Good erotica is fun to read. This is a perfect example of a badly written book. The story line (??) was an afterthought, at best barely there to link the erotic scenes. If asked I would guess it had been written by a teenage boy. I didn't get very far before re-listing. Save your book credits for something better than this.
Overall the book was alright. There are really two stories in the book. If you like to read about threesomes, then you'll like the first story. The second is about dominance. I thought the plot lines were lacking, but it was a quick easy read. Enjoy!
I love Maya Banks but this one was my favorite and the only "keeper" I have. Kit sometimes gets on my nerves in the first story but her love for Ryder and Mac always out weighs that. Its a hot story of Menage with a great happily ever after.
The second story of Mia is somewhat different. I would have been so quick to forgive Jack, but hey he does save her from being sold into white slavery. I guess thats worth forgiveness. Hot sex here too.
I enjoy Maya Banks though none of her other books compare to Colters Woman. Hot hot hot. this was a quick read with enjoyable characters
I really liked this book. It was 3 stories that all intertwined the characters. It was a nice HEA for story one and 2 with Ryder, Kit and Mac. The third story brought in the character Mia who was friends with Ryder. I didn't like her character as much as the others but thought this was a good read. Love Maya Banks books in general so this was not dissappointing.
Good writing, story has a few uncomfortable moments. Woman loves two best friends and they all get what they need out of the relationship. Kit is recovering from a brutal assault and rape and seeks comfort with her two long time friends. Although the good ole boys have soft centers where Kit is concerned, they indulge in domination and double penetration. Lots of reassurance that everyone is getting what they want, very little angst considering. Last portion of the book is young stripper latching onto the Texas Ranger that saved her years ago. Light BDSM.
Oh, jeez; where to begin.......... yes, the sex was scorching hot. The three-way between Mac,Kit & Ryder did literally set the sheets on fire. The second story was basically a continuation of the first, with the same characters, but oh, the drama! Who's baby is it? Then a miscarriage, then one of the heros gets shot. Oh, puhleeeeez. I felt like I was reading the script of a soap opera. The same can be said for the third story - over-the-top melodrama; waaaay over-the-top. Ms. Banks has done much better; this was a disappointment for me.
I really enjoyed this book. It is broken down into 3 stories but they tie into each other. The 1st two are great love stories of childhood friends. Two guys one girls. Two had a really bad childhood and were always there for each other. When the two men return to town as adults, she has been raped and is being stalked. The alpha males try to protect her. Maya Banks does an amazing job of taking you along with them as they each fall deeper in love. This book has it all, great sex scenes with the three of them filling her every fantasy and some scary scenes with the nut that is chasing her. The 3rd story is a really good alpha story that closes out the friend that is touched on throughout the 1st two stories.
I REALLY like these stories. There were certain parts that could have been better but overall all 3 were very good. And VERY HOT. (Have a fan or man (or 2) close by) I would like Ms. Banks to write a sequel to Kit's story. I'd LOVE to see how all that works out in the years to come :) (We could all be so lucky!)
Good read, not a keeper unless you have more shelf space than I do!
Good read. Split into 3 novellas - 1 and 2 follow the same heroes/heroine and storyline - the 3rd concerns a minor character/plot thread introduced in the earlier stories. Some menage, D/S and medium bondage - hot!
Maya Banks knows how to writes a hot scene. But she also makes sure there is a good story to go with them. This book has three connected stories. In classic Maya Banks style, she turns up the heat with a MMF relationship in the first two stories and ends with a Dom in the third. If you like Ms. Banks writing, you'll enjoy this book.
Banks' writing style doesn't work for me. I don't find her descriptions of the sex scenes very sexy, the storyline is OK but not enough to carry a book whose main objective is to be sexy. Not very sexy plus boring story = don't bother. I'll re-list this before I finish reading. Try Emma Holly if you need a super hot menage story.
I tried desperately to read this. I wanted to like it. Unfortunately not even one out of the three stories in it appealed to me. I was definitely disappointed.
This was my first Maya Banks book, now I am hooked. Good fiction, most of it its far retched and a little hard to believe but I could not put it down.
For Her Pleasure includes three gripping tales of love, trust, and happiness. Meet five incredible people on their journey through life and eventually love, Kit, Mac, Ryder, Mia and Jack. Two of the stories center on Kit, Mac and Ryder...Ms. Banks' erotica is a sweet and loving glimpse into the exciting genre of BDSM.
