DELICIOUS by Shayla Black (ARC review)

Author: Shayla Black
Source: ARC received from publisher (thank you Liz)
* I received this ARC copy free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
  • Paperback: 368 pages
  • Publisher: Berkley Trade (March 2, 2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0425232425
  • ISBN-13: 978-0425232422

He can’t control his desire.
Luc Traverson’s entire future is planned out—but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa Devereaux . She’s a former exotic dancer turned strip club owner and restaurateur. Recently, Alyssa and Luc shared one night of wild abandon that left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control—and Alyssa desperate for more.

And that’s just the way she wants it.
Fulfilling a promise, Luc is the guest chef for Alyssa’s restaurant debut. The sight of her makes Luc wild, so how can he survive a week without letting loose and ravaging her—especially when she’s begging for it? Luc’s desire for her explodes when he realizes he isn’t the only man desperate to have her. But one of the others is deadly. And that’s not the end of Alyssa’s secrets…which are as dark and mysterious and enticing as her fantasies.

OMG!  I have been dying to post this review! Now it is finally close enough to release date that I can't hold back any longer in sharing with you this Delicious book!

First of all, I have waited FOREVER it seems for this book.  Luc so far, is my favorite out of all of the series so far.  Ms. Black has got a knack for writing wonderful stories that leave you hot and bothered and on the edge of your seat with suspense.  Just when you think the story is coming to an end, she throws more at you!

What was nice about this book is we get to not only get mention of the previous books' characters, but we actually get to see interaction with them.  We get to read the hot and heavy sex scenes that the author has mastered, the suspense that keeps this plot moving effortlessly, and characters with depth and reality to them.  At first, I wasn't too sure about the character of Alyssa, but as the story progressed I really enjoyed the chemistry between her and Luc.  I was constantly trying to figure out the mystery of who was stalking Alyssa, and the author kept me guessing up until the end. 

The sex scenes alone were enough to keep me going through this book.  The heat radiated from the pages and left you panting along with the characters.  The author knows sexy and can write it with ease.  I will never look at a strawberry the same way again after reading this book. 

A book that is very erotic, scorching hot and oh so Delicious!


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!

I didn't read the book, I listened to the audiobook.  I personally wasn't impressed with the book.  Spoiler ALERT!

There are tons of things I disliked about Delicious.  Luc was a total jackass in this book.  Luc's behavior in Delicious was the complete opposite of his behavior in Decadent.  In Decadent Luc was a gentlemen and so sweet, caring and loving towards Kimber. In Delicious, Luc was a insensitive asshole about 99.9% of the book, he was demeaning etc., of Alyssa and ALL the great sex scenes didn't make up for his crappy behavior.

At first I really liked Alyssa. She was someone who was strong, she started out as a stripper and eventually opened her own strip club went back to school and got and MBA in business and opened up a restaurant which would allow her to stop stripping. What made me lose respect for Alyssa is that she realized Luc had a low opinion of her and yet she kept sleeping with him again and again when she should have kicked Luc's ass to the curb. This book/audiobook get an F.
