By day Miranda is a demure, conservative doctorate student working on her Victorian Erotica thesis. By night, she is a sex kitten who is eager to explore her voracious sexual appetite.

Sounds pretty amazing right? Yeah, captured my attention right out the gate. Too bad I didn’t realize it was going to be nothing but sex without real substance in this book. I love smut as much as the next Erotica reader, because let’s face it, it’s the sex that intrigues us into reading it in the first place. But too much of a good thing can be bad.

I have read some really great erotic romance novels and some really bad ones. This one falls somewhere in between. It had some really great highlights like how she learned to be content with who she is and realize that her appetite although insatiable in the right context is quite special. The scenes between the couples were great and some done in great detail; even down to the point of smell. I think Miranda is very brave and I do applaud her taking hold of her desires and running with it; even if it was extreme because today in our society some things are still taboo.

What really turned me off with this book was the uncaring disregard for her safety, which after half way through the book she realized how unsafe some of the situations she put herself in was. Then it was every sex scene took about four to five pages (if not longer) then it’s a page and half of reprieve then sex again. I ended up skimming them because it was pretty much the same things over and over again; especially after she read from the diary or hearing about someone else’s sex life she gets horny and would need release. Side note: I believe her being “betrayed and abandoned” by her first lover is slightly exaggerated as it was one night and really has nothing to do with her insatiable lust.

In the end it was hard for me to connect with this book because of the seemingly never-ending sex, which can be great in some context but not for over 200 pages. Also, reader beware: READ THE DISCLAIMER before diving into this book.

I was gifted a copy of this book from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own and I was in no way compensated.
