Review: Adored by Tina Donahue

Thursday, December 10, 2009


A shameless fantasy come true…
When tall, dark and delicious Adam Farrell crosses Danni’s radar at a trade show in Vegas, it’s not lust at first sight. He’s been the star of her wicked fantasies for a while, pleasuring her in acts of domination and submission that leave her breathless. Aching for his masterful touch, believing she’ll never have it, Danni indulges in a public sex act Adam alone witnesses. What follows is a night of wild and unrestrained passion in his powerful arms. It’s only the beginning.
An undisclosed business deal has turned Adam from competitor to Danni’s new boss. His hunger for her is absolute and he’ll make her fantasies seem tame as he takes her in ways she never imagined—whenever he wants, wherever he desires.
Seduced by Adam’s plan to mix exquisite control with adoration, Danni’s swept into a sensual adventure she can’t resist. Until corporate politics intrude and she learns what Adam’s been hiding to protect her…a secret he’s long feared will tear them apart. (blurb)

I have to shamefully admit as I got this book as a review copy my expectations weren't really high. Never heard something about that book or the author at all. But OMFG I was so wrong.

I started this book on my way home from one of the most boring lectures of my life. I read it in the tram and that was a huge mistake. I only read the first 2 chapters but all the other people must have thought: "What does she read that makes her blush like that?" And I was so strong and didn't start screaming some confusing things like: "Don't you dare masturbate now!" so I should be happy. The book gripped me from the start and took me on a wild and really hawt ride.

Danni is a very emotional but strong character. She got hurt in the past, not only by two asshole boyfriends but also by her cheating father. She has a few commitment issues because of that but she tries to not be too suspicious of every man and to give Adam a real chance. She trusts him not to hurt her but there is one thing she can't forgive and that is lying.

Adam always was intrigued by Danni and now he finally gets his chance to do something about it. He wants her not only for one night but for long time. He loves that she is so open about her fantasies and wants to explore how far he can go with her. He doesn't want to burden her with a few things and so he tries to solve them hinself without telling her about it. Typical man!

These two really made me sweat. Their chemistry is unbelievable hot and very imaginative. I loved the build up and the back and fourth these two experienced through the whole book.

The story is a nice mix between contemporary and erotica. I loved that it was not only like reading porn but more like a sweet story with many hot interruptions. *wink*

The one drawback was that I knew after the first 2 or 3 chapters how this book would end but I enjoyed it very much nonetheless.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves his contemporary romance spicy.

Susi you crack me up! At least you were reading an ebook what if it had been print O_o think of how much you'd have been blushing! Elloras's Cave is where I get all my erotica, home away from home.

SusiSunshine said...

@Smokinhofbooks The blushing was more out of WTF are you doing that? Seriously? Just don't? I always have this being embarrassed for someone else. Very annoying while watching TV, I tell ya! LOL
