Even though Appetite for Lust started off slow and I found myself in the beginning, waiting for the story to get started it turned out to be a good read. I understand and enjoy an erotic romance story that has a slow build, which doesn't have characters just jumping into bed together. But so much time was spent in getting the story started and developing the character's storyline it became tedious. The secondary characters were well drawn and somewhat more interesting and engaging than the main characters. Overall, the story was a good read but to me it lacked passion and heat.
