When her lover is ultimately revealed, can Ava accept both sides of the same man?? You have to pick up this little gem to find out!
I really had a great time reading this book! Joya Ryan writes characters that you just wanted to cheer for. They just “got” the other at a raw level. Rules of Seduction is billed as a BDSM novel primarily because it takes place at the club Serve, but it is not. Don’t get me wrong, even though there are no BDSM scenes, the scenes we are treated to are off the chart hot and steamy! I also loved all the witty banter between Ava and Nolan! So much fun! The only thing I would have liked to see, is a bit more explanation of Ava’s failed marriage. It’s obvious he did a number on her and she was still carrying around that baggage. It wasn’t a big deal though. This is my first novel by Joya Ryan. She has a real knack for writing and now I am definitely intrigued to read more of her work!
