Althea Grant’s Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere, but she’s doing just fine, thank you. When bad-boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual—and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolor landscapes.
Steel, fascinated by Althea’s rare albino coloring, sees in her the key to his next piece: a metal satyr designed for bondage games. Moving into her gallery basement is the first step; seducing the cool Southern belle into modeling for him is the second.
As Steel peels away her careful manners and tasteful outfits, Althea begins to realize her life isn’t just fine at all—it’s as pale and washed-out as the watercolor paintings she’s failing to sell. Can she transform her life and accept her most secret desires?
Deb’s Review :
Platinum by Jeffe Kennedyis a part of Facets of Passion seriesit is an Intense, Heartwarming romance, with a few shock factors along the way.
Steel is Dark as to where Athena is light, but together they are explosive.
Steel is an interesting character, full of passion, life and a uniqueness all his own. He definitely has the WOW factor. His intensity draws you to his story. His tenacity to get what he wants takes him into Athena’s world. Can he convince her to see herself as something more, without getting his heart snared by this lovely beauty?
The heroine character Athena, I enjoyed the life out of. Her genetic make-up is unique to say the least. She is shy, unsure of her worth as a daughter and as an artist. It takes one midnight dream named, “Steel” to unleash what has been lurking underneath her desires. Can she survive after what Steel asks of her, or will it all be too much in the end?
I have to say I enjoyed finding out. *grins*
Second level characters added to the story line, they helped make this book fun, but truly Steel and Athena made this book so easy to enjoy. There is one secondary character that stood out to me, Abby. Will she get a book of her own? She peaked my interest.
As for the plotline it is a deep, dark, sensual romance, where passions are released. Where Steel and Athena find themselves giving into what they feel. I found myself gasping a time or two; these two really come to life, on every page.
Jeffe Kennedy creates such a believable world. I was so caught-up I felt every tingle, every slap, and every heart melting moment. Brava, Jeffe Kennedy Brava! Platinum is a must have for anyone’s BDSM library. Jeffe Kennedy has a new follower and fan. You are taken from 0 to 60… Hold on to your seats.
