Even before her bad marriage ended, Lauren MacDonald lost everything—her job, her friends, her self-esteem, and her sexual appetite. Now that she’s finally free, she’s struggling to regain control of a life her ex did his best to destroy.
The plan: sex with Justin Scott, her ex’s business partner. The man her husband invited into their marital bed, forcing her to realize it was time to get out. Justin was the star of the fantasies that helped her endure her marriage, so she can’t deny she wanted him—but not like that. She wants him like this—alone. In her bed. For exactly three nights.
Justin screwed up with Lauren, and in the past she’s made no secret of the fact she loathes him. So when she walks into his office flashing miles of long, lean legs, his brain cells misfire. Three nights of meaningless sex? He’s all over it. Not only does he have the chance to unleash his desire for her, it’s the opening he’s been waiting for—to convince her to give him more.
In the beginning, A Proper Seduction seems to be a book with little complexity, but I’m here to tell you that I was wrong as I continued reading because the heart of the book came alive on the pages and took me by surprise.
There is such soul in this short, yet compelling story. I was shocked at how well it captured my interest and pulled me in to the point that I couldn’t put it down. The characters were brilliantly written in that with Lauren, you just felt what she had to endure. I was shocked a few times as I am sure readers will be by the depth of this story and its characters.
I will say that I was happy that Lauren gives Justin a hard time. After what happened it is only fair. Justin is someone I did not think I would like but he grows on you. The chemistry between Justin and Lauren just sparks then blossoms into an overwhelming passion.
For a short read, the reader will be able to connect easily with the hero and heroine in Helen Kay Dimon’s A Proper Seduction. Helen Kay Dimon has provided us with a saucy treat worth coming back for in A Proper Seductionand I for one will be reading this author again.
