It's been one of those days I've been binge reading EH's series Thanks to my fellow Goodread friends who convinced me to continue on with the Maiden Lane series with Duke of Sin While it wasn't my fav unlike many of the series' devoted fans I am re appreciating some of the other books later in the series centered around the Lord of Chaos secret societyI give this one 45 stars which I rounded to 5 And here's why1 I love tortured heroes Who doesn't They make for the most interesting characters and the tortured heroes who overcome their demons demonstrate such courage and innate goodness that you can't help but fall in love with them in the process Raphael is one such character Between him and Valentine from Duke of Sin he definitely had it worse But he triumphed over the darkness in the end2 The loyal strong heroine Iris was attracted to him from the get go and I'm a fan of insta lust if not insta love There's a rawness to EH's sex scenes a gritty primitiveness that fogs up the Kindle powers up fantasies tho I think most of us might not encounter such primal sexuality in real life or we wouldn't be reading romances We'd be spending every waking moment with the source of that primal sexuality Iris knows what she wants who she wants and it doesn't take her long to figure it out Bravo I do like a woman who knows what she wants3 This one is a particular fetish of mine the male virgin Or if not a virgin then someone not very prolific at the very least Someone not so easy It's a treat for the heroine when she discovers him and the treat for the reader vicariouslySmall complaint the ending was rather abrupt One moment he was ready to leave her forever again and the next just because she prettily entreated him he crumbles and gives in to have their HEA Hmmmmm maybe she was up against a deadline and HAD to end it Too abrupt Hence the minus half starMade me want to read tho so on to Duke of Pleasure in reverse order

Someone's been watching too much of The Bachelor The heroine in this book is the person rejected by the hero of the last book And just like The Bachelor I can't help but wonder why we would want to see the LOSER of the last story get their own story I see our next BacheloretteSo like the chick above I don't watch the shows and just spent a disturbingly long amount of time researching so I can use the memes and gifs I really need to get a life Iris is getting her chance at romance after being snubbed by the dude in the last book for a girl whom he had thought was a boy for months and was mentoring as a son Yeah cuz that's not disturbing at allThis was literally the theme of the book before this oneObviously I'm not over the creepy icky factor of the last book I mean really If we ladies all found out that the cute little girl in Stranger Things was actually an adult male would we really be lining up to sleep with him NO Because that's gross and weird WTH last bookEven betterOur girl Iris meets her new love interest at a debauched orgy where she will be gang raped and killed He's one of the participants but has a change of heart and decides to save her and marry her Sounds like husband material to meRaphael the male is actually an okay guy well except for the angst I'll get to that in a minute but sheesh Lord save me from an angsty man Anyway Raphael is undercover to stop the asshole rapist group and couldn't let them kill Iris Or rape her So he's alright in my book Raphael would be a beautiful man but he has a giant jagged scar running across half of his face That's right he's hideous girls And has angst Stop lining up for him dammit I don't see guys lining up for the scarred female trope But we are suckers aren't we Zsadist anyone There are definite similarities to our favorite Black Dagger Brotherhood heroTwinsiesSo Iris and Raphael are married and the rapey brotherhood is trying to kill them both Also Iris wants a baby and Raphael is too angsty to give her one There is a lot of smut that doesn't involve actual sex which is strange but at least there is variety Variety is the spice of life I've heardI liked both of the characters well enough but there was tons of emotional trauma on Raphael's side He has a messed up past and is basically a walking case of PTSD Iris on the other hand is like that extremely practical woman who would be considered hearty She knows what she wants and will not allow his angst get in her wayI think this book is the last one in the series and I'm okay with it ending because other than Val's book it was mostly just mediocre There was one character left who didn't get a story and I missed Also of an epilogue would have been nice Maybe some hangings of the rapists I do like me a good happy ending
