This review also appears on Steamy Guys After Dark
picks up pretty much right where Desire
ends, and it's slightly more annoying.
Still an overbearing douchebag boyfriend! Still a girl who is willing to do something that makes her uncomfortable to win said douchebag boyfriend's love! Still a lot of gross words! Still an overuse of exclamation marks!
We find out that David has only ever brought two other women to the Dining Club, and Grace finds out (and passes) her first challenge. She also seems to take an interest in the manager of the club, Andrew, which was weird, but whatever.
I'm not going to mention all of the things I don't like because this novella is only 35 pages, and I pretty much didn't like any of them. I'll just leave you with this:
If she wanted to keep David, and after their conversation earlier she knew without a doubt that she did, then she had to go through with this.
"Choose from the first two."
Grace began to tremble. "I don't want either," she whispered. "I don't know what they mean. I don't think I can do this."
"Then you simply refuse the dessert, my darling, but of course you know what that will mean for us."
I'm going to keep reading, but I'm even less hopeful for a turnaround than I was before.
