If you like romance and sex, but with a good well written action plot this book is for you. ARC provided via authors. Pleasures of Autumn is definitely my favourite of the Pleasures series to date. Dynamic duo making up team Evie Hunter is hitting their stride. This latest in the Pleasures series showcases both their writing maturity as well as their ability to crank up the heat. Sinead O'Sullivan is the female lead. She is a shy exhibitionist. How is this possible? She's demure in her public life. In her private life, she dances burlesque behind a mask. Immediately I'm attracted to this character because of her Pleasures of Autumn is definitely my favourite of the Pleasures series to date.
Immediately I'm attracted to this character because of her complexities and her dancing. As a fan of burlesque, reading about a woman paying her schooling through dancing is very enjoyable. It's nice to see how a woman can both be quiet at times and very sassy in others. Hunter definitely knows how to create great female characters. Niall Moore is the male lead who is sexy, dominant and in way over his head. He's never dealt with a woman like Sinead. She definitely keeps him on his toes. It's amusing witnessing a controlling dominant with carefully laid plans thrown off kilter.
This story is well written which invokes emotions in the reader. This helps make the book better because it causes the reader to feel more engaged. Specifically, the frustrations of Sinead as she tries to prove her innocence is what pulls me in. In addition, the roleplaying of a Domme to find answers she needs is very amusing. The most amusing part is forcing Niall to submit as a submissive in order to gather intel.
This is hilarious because as most people have experienced, alpha male dominants do not submit gracefully. It's a nice twist. The payback Niall deals Sinead is smoking hawt. The BDSM in this story is enjoyable. Is it realistic for the common populace? Still, from a rich fantasy point of view, it's most likely probable. I just don't happen to run in those circles. The whipping scenes in this story are decently researched which made me very happy.
The tidbit of professional dominatrix with pet play incorporated is also realistic. This book definitely upped the kink factor. Hopefully if there is another in this series, the kinkiness will only increase. Nov 05, Storm rated it really liked it. Museum curator Sinead O'Sullivan, a girl with secrets, finds herself accused of stealing a priceless jewel from the very museum she works at. Her fingerprints are everywhere, an eyewitness puts her at the scene, and the damning CCTV evidence does not lie Private investigator Niall Moore is hired by both the museum to retrieve the jewel from Sinead, and by Sinead's uncle to prove her innocence.
Neither trusts the other, and with good reason, a Museum curator Sinead O'Sullivan, a girl with secrets, finds herself accused of stealing a priceless jewel from the very museum she works at. Neither trusts the other, and with good reason, and yet they find the sexual chemistry between them impossible to ignore Those 'in the know' know that I have been on a painstaking quest to find well written erotica following the 'boom' of the genre over the last couple of years. This is the first in the 'Pleasures' series that I have read It works fine as a stand-alone though , and boy could I have saved myself the torture of reading some right drivvle during my quest - if only I'd have found these sooner!
Ok so the lead characters do jump into bed ridiculously quickly - well in my world anyway what am I doing wrong?!! But then that can be forgiven because, well, quite frankly what do you expect from erotica?! There is a bit of BDSM in there, but not in a scary 'red room of pain' kind of way; but more of a not-my-thing-but-still-kinda-hot sort of way.
And its quite refreshing that the Dom is not a complete arse, and the Sub isn't a pathetic mess - both are strong, intelligent, likable characters - and you find yourself really caring about what happens to them.
And the bonus prize goes to And not a bad one at that - a good plot, mystery, suspense, action, romance And so I am thankful that my quest has been fulfilled - erotica can be well written - no more glorified porn for me! I'd recently decided that maybe I was being too harsh, and that maybe I'm just not a fan of the genre after all.

However, although I think the erotica will be put way down the bottom of the reading list from now on I may just be able to make time for a few more from the 'Pleasures' series My thanks to the author and Penguin Books for providing this book for review Oct 11, Christi Snow rated it really liked it. Overall, this was an entertaining and interesting read. Sinead is a stuffy, staid fine arts museum curator by day, but by night, she has a deep secret. She's a famous burlesque dancer, Lottie. Niall has seen Lottie perform many times and is a bit of an obsessed fan. I liked the fact that he knew Sinead as Lottie, but that also was a negative to me as a reader.
If he'd only seen her perform once, I could probably have dismissed him not catching on with who she is, but he saw her perform My Review: If he'd only seen her perform once, I could probably have dismissed him not catching on with who she is, but he saw her perform many times and throughout the book, Sinead lets Lottie bleed through more and more. I just can't believe he never saw it, especially since he was supposed to be such a crack-shot investigator.
But that aside, I did enjoy that aspect of her character. It's like she's two completely different people. Through Lottie, she lets herself get wild and brave and I loved that. But it's her day job that gets her into trouble. As curator for the museum, Sinead handles lots of priceless items, one just happens to be an invaluable ruby It's disappeared and all the evidence including video proves that the thief is most definitely her. BUT she didn't do it.
As the child of a gypsy, Sinead was left alone at age 4. Her grandmother and uncle stepped in to care for her and although she swore to them that she had a twin sister, they never believed her. Sinead believes it has to be her twin who perpetrated the theft, but she hasn't seen her since she was 4, she has no idea how to find her. This is a book that travels all over Europe and into some of the swanky but risque clubs and dinner parties of the rich and famous.
It turns out the twin sisters are more alike than expected. Sinead's twin is a famous Domme, called Little Red. So she sets off to find her and spends a lot of the time impersonating her. It made for a fun, suspense filled read. I will admit there were flaws in the story line and little details that were simply unbelievable.
But overall, I could overlook those since I enjoyed the adventure of reading the book. It's a high-action read with lots of twists and turns and a good deal of smexy fun in between. I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review. Aug 18, Clare O'Beara rated it really liked it Shelves: This romantic suspense tale is certainly good fun as a museum curator who secretly financed her studies through stripping is accused of stealing a jewel, the Fire of Autumn. Will she lose her job; will she go to a Swiss jail; most importantly to this lady, will her secret come out to everyone?
A previous book which I hadn't read established a well-off socialite family and our red-haired Irish heroine is a cousin of that family. They can afford to hire investigators and security. So very shortly o This romantic suspense tale is certainly good fun as a museum curator who secretly financed her studies through stripping is accused of stealing a jewel, the Fire of Autumn.
So very shortly our heroine is guarded by the most inept security firm in Europe.
Over the course of a couple of days she eludes them twice and is abducted from their care three times. They never once suggest providing a female close protection officer to guard her as she tracks down the jewel and thieves; this would be standard as a woman can go to a ladies' room with her. Everyone is after the ruby and some miscreants are more vicious than others. This leads to a merry romp around Paris the research must have been hell and into bondage and dominance clubs for reasons I'll leave you to explore.
There are also several obligatory and lengthy bedroom scenes even though our heroine is not in the habit of seeing boyfriends. We can admire the heroine's tenacity if not perhaps her dedication as she seems obsessed with spending time in the gym or in bed rather than making the most use of the short time before she's deemed to have skipped bail.

Dislikes include some terms such as 'his tongue plundered her mouth' and editing issues like a stolen jewel being found 'in a secret Nazi horde' which I wouldn't mention about a self-published book. Overall this tries to be both a thriller and an erotic romance and could do with improvement on the thriller end but has plenty of sex and shopping if that is what interests you. The book is a collaboration between two female Irish authors. You can read my reviews of the previous books on my blog.
Niall had appeared in The Pleasures of Summer so I was looking forward to finding out more about him. I loved the strong connection between the characters, this made them feel real and likeable to me. The lovely epilogue finished the book with a rather romantic conclusion which I really enjoyed. These authors have once again managed to inject a special brand of magic into their writing which captivates me as a reader entirely. This was a sizzling, exciting read that held my attention throughout. Oct 21, Laylaw rated it liked it Shelves: I read Pleasures of Winter and really liked that story so I had high hopes for this one.
It dragged no pun intended somewhat for me especially in the beginning. And it was a little far fetched- I mean, you are a Gem Specialist who works as a curator in museum in Geneva and you used to moonlight as a burlesque dancer named Lottie, and you also have an identical twin sister who happens to set you up for the crime but no one and I mean no one believes you hav 3 Stars- I liked but I didn't love it. And it was a little far fetched- I mean, you are a Gem Specialist who works as a curator in museum in Geneva and you used to moonlight as a burlesque dancer named Lottie, and you also have an identical twin sister who happens to set you up for the crime but no one and I mean no one believes you have a twin sister including your family, but you finally find her and she is a dominatrix in BDSM clubs in Europe.
Add on top of that you are insecure and hide behind big clothing but yet you used to strip??? In the meantime, we learn that Niall has always had the hots for Lottie and has no idea that Sinead and Lottie are one in the same. Sinead tries to hide her secret from him throughout the book, even when they end up in situations that are way more extreme than learning you used to do burlesque.
Add in some kidnapping, a rogue agent out to get the stone first, the evasive sister, some kinky BDSM, some globe trotting and you have Pleasures of Autumn. Jun 07, Nicola rated it it was amazing. The combination of eroticism and romance with suspense, action and some fabulous humour makes this book a superb read. Whilst in keeping with the previous 'Pleasures' books in terms of the BDSM aspect, it's also uniquely different as Niall has a completely different dominant nature in comparison to Jack or Flynn.
