Review: A Million Guilty Pleasures (Million Dollar Duet #2) by C.L. Parker

Two million dollars secured Noah Crawford the most enticing woman he has ever known. Initiating Delaine Talbot into a sensuous world of pleasure took them both to the brink—again and again. But when Noah discovers why the beautiful innocent sold her body to the highest bidder, he’s faced with the hardest thing he ever had to do: Set her free. 

Lanie can’t believe Noah would let her go. Doesn’t he know they share a bond deeper than sex—a connection too powerful to sever? Not even a treacherous enemy out to destroy Noah or the dark secret haunting the multibillionaire can keep them apart. But first Lanie has to show him that he belongs to her, even if it means risking everything for a love that can never be bought or sold.

A Million Guilty Pleasures is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

ebook, 256 pages

Genre: Erotica
Kristine's Thoughts:
* I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*
Where do I begin with this book? Lets see...if you enjoy reading from this genre for the hot, steamy and descriptive sex you will probably like it. If you read for the story, not so much.
The story line itself was average at best. At times I actual thought it was a little boring and it took me much longer to get through 256 pages then it should. Noah himself was a little dull and lacked the over the top swoon worthy personality that you would expect in this style of book. I found Lanie to be a little annoying with her constant references to "cooch and wonder peen." 
How do I describe the erotic scenes? I guess you could say that they were kind of like washing your hair. Wash, rinse, repeat. It feels really good the first time but gets monotonous very quickly after that. Yes there was lots of hot and steamy but I found it a little repetitive and although the lust was obvious I couldn't quite feel the love. For a couple that is suppose to love each other so much there was a lot of raunch and very little love in the "love making." 

As much as I enjoy some "between the sheets" action in a book I do need and hope for a good story to go with it. Unfortunately this fell a little bit short in that department and my rating is on the very generous side.

About the Author
C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
