REVIEW: Pick Your Pleasure by Jayne Rylon

Image
***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Linley is the CEO of her own company and she’s tired of boring dates with men only interested in her money. She decides to shake things up by visiting a sex club, but quickly realizes she’s out of her league. She’s presented with two potential guides for the evening and they both turn her on within minutes of meeting them. YOU get to choose which of them leads her through the night.
Thoughts:I never really read those “Choose Your Own Adventure” type stories as a kid – I thought them a little weird. Upon discovering that an author I enjoyed reading had written a romance book in such a fashion was surprisingly intriguing. Having read it, it’s actually really cool.

Both men are delicious and the club they’re in has a world of opportunities. There’s generally only one love scene on whatever path you choose and it makes for a pretty short read, but there’s plenty of tension, teasing, and it’s…

***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.*** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summary:Suffering from agoraphobia after a horrific car accident, Chloe lives at her bookstore and spends her nights plagued by nightmares. A mysterious stranger, Nathaniel, offers her some help, but she senses there’s something more to him. Nathaniel grows weary of his existence reaping souls, but uses his abilities to save a woman in a car accident, unknowingly changing both their fates.
