Lover Enraptured is the second book in the Thieves of Aurios series by Jodi Redford. It’s about Avily Donahue and Jerrick Hunter. There is a history between Avily and Jerrick that, unless you read the first book, you wouldn't know completely about. Jerrick was the man who taught Avily everything she needed to know about being a thief; a life she left behind just as she did Jerrick. Yet over those five years she couldn't get him out of her mind. When he showed up on her door step asking her to pose as his submissive, complete with a leather outfit to get inside a no-fae's allowed sex club, Avily was having NOTHING to do with it. In fact the roles would be reversed. He would end up being HER submissive instead. But soon their fake front to get into the club, in order to finish a job, escalates into an all too real erotic game. The prize tantalizes Jerrick beyond reason.
I have to admit that when I first started reading this book I had high hopes for it. The cover is amazing with its artwork. The reviews and the teaser drew me in as well, yet once I started reading the book it didn't catch my attention in that first chapter like some books do. In fact it wasn't until after the first 40 pages that I truly got into the book and was drawn in. After that, and picking up the history between the two main characters, I was drawn back into it and finished the book within a matter of two hours. Readers are in for erotic and sexy scenes, battles of will and amazingly developed characters. My big suggestion is that if you plan on reading this book; read the first in the series (Lover Enslaved) before you read this one. That way you have the background going in.
Looks like someone’s knees are going to get a workout.
Avily Donahoe has dated way too many losers trying to get over Jerrick Hunter, the man who taught her everything about the life of crime she left behind. Now he has the balls to show up and ask her to pose as his sub, complete with skimpy leather outfit, to get inside a no-faes-allowed sex club?
Oh, hell no. If anyone’s going to be wearing next to nothing, it’s going to be Jerrick…as her bitch.
Five years ago, Jerrick realized the lonely kid he’d taken under his wing had grown into a tempting, desirable woman—and he’d cut her loose. If gaining her help now means hitting his knees with a leash and a collar, so be it.
But soon their front escalates into an all-too-real erotic game where the prize is the one thing that tantalizes him beyond reason. Their hearts aren’t the only thing they’ll lose if they fail. It could mean the end of everything—and everyone—they know and love.
Warning: This book contains male groveling, the occasional blindfold and feather tickler, wicked sex magic, and a fae thief who isn’t afraid to wear ass-less chaps when the job calls for it.
