Anita is attending a friend’s wedding when Nathaniel, her pomme de sang, makes known in no uncertain terms that he wants to take the relationship to the next level. Anita’s subsequent actions take her to a place she has hitherto carefully avoided.


This was kind of a confusing novella. Which, considering I found out after I read it that it’s the condensed version of a novel… kind of completely makes sense. And, even though it wasn’t completely sensical, it was a fun, smutty kind of journey. And one that I would like to discover more about. There was just enough information to enthral me, but not enough to make me feel like I really knew what was going. Which, for a curious girlchild like myself, was the perfect little teaser.

Although this story really pulled me in and made me kind of fascinated, it was a little bit smutty for my preferences. I’m really not into reading about characters with multiple partners, and found that some of the moments when talking about her relationships (yes, as in plural) a bit uncomfortable. The redeeming factor with that though was the fact that Anita, the lead, also felt incredibly uncomfortable with the situation she seemed to have found herself in. Which made me interested enough to add Guilty Pleasures to my wishlist.
