Simone Kahan’s is a little bit of a voyeur, watching Elliott Anderson from her office window. Each new bimbo comes and goes, all blonde, and never more than twice. Watching him have sex is the highlight of her long evenings until one evening Elliott spanks his tryst and they have words. The spanking calls to the darker side of Simone’s lust. When they meet up in the elevator, Simone entices Elliott to take her to a party, where she both intrigues him and repels him.

Elliott never gives into his darker side. He only goes out with women once or twice and they are all pretty much blonde bimbos. Simone is different with her dark pixie haircut and glittering blue eyes. When the evening ends with a harsh kiss, Elliott runs from what he has vowed he can’t have.

This was a short introduction in the Every Part of You serialized series of five books. It is a brief brushing of the senses that make you want to continue to the next book without delay to see where this goes. There are not big revelations in this one, but just enough hints to make you desire more, to look deeper, to find the dark spaces that reside in these two hearts.

Unfortunately, I am not a fan of serials. If I wasn’t reviewing them I probably would not have bought this book at $1.99. If the prices come down or they bundle the five books into a reasonable price, I might be more inclined to purchase it myself.

I am marking the first part of this serial as contemporary, but each installment has a little different focus and I will elaborate when we get there.

 What are your thoughts on serial romances? Short stories hard to get into?

Delighted Reader Afternoon Delight

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

  • A Brush of the senses…love that turn of phrase. I’m not a fan of serials though its not b/c I don’t think they’re a good story.. I don’t have the patience and the cost is a definite factor too.

      Glad you liked my turn of phrase!

      Some how I keep getting sucked into serial series and NA romances lately and I detest both! Luckily I got all five of this serial for review. I am not against serials so much as I am about the pricing of them. You end up spending so much for so little on them. I also don’t have the patience to wait for the next one. I am stuck in another one right now that I am waiting for part two to come out on…which won’t be until this summer … crud!

      • I feel your pain. Waiting a few months each time for just a few more pages? That is a type of torture I think. Haha!

  • Hi! Hopping over from The Social Blogger linky. =) I’m not really a fan of serials. The installments are too short for me, and I don’t like waiting for the next! Like you, I’d rather buy them in a reasonably priced bundle.

      So happy to meet you Diana! I am trying to hop around tonight as well to visit everyone. I agree…serials are the bane of my existence right now. The price is too high, I don’t have the patience and at times each new installment makes me scratch my head because I forgot what happened last.

  • Well it does sound intriguing Shari! I don’t do the serials either though and my first go of Harts was…rough so I don’t know that I’d be up for trying it at that price though like yall said maybe if they were bundled at a decent price.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Hart writes about hard stuff, so I am selective of what I choose from her. Mostly because it is an escape to read and I really don’t want that much reality in my escape time.

      Yep, I am not a fan of serials. I think it is a gimmick to get more money and seems to be a big trend lately. I won’t be reading them unless it is for review and I get them all.

      • My biggest issue was that it didn’t have any warning it was a book based entirely on cheating. Not just thinking about cheating or in the past but full out sleeping with her husband and the lover and hiding it from her husband. Lover knew as well. Made them very hard to like at all.
