Book Description

Luna Saint Claire has a loving husband and an enviable career as a Hollywood costume designer. Still, something is gnawing at her. Bored with her conventional and circumscribed existence, she feels herself becoming invisible. When she meets Nico Romero, a charismatic yoga guru, his attentions awaken her passions and desires. Dangerous, but not in a way that scares her, he makes her feel as if anything is possible.

REVIEW
Rating: 3.5 Stars
This was a very different, erotic, interesting read. This book focuses on Nico, a yoga instructor, who manipulates multiple women. This book was different and intriguing.

This book will get in your head and not leave. The author did a great job with this story. It is written well and the story was done perfectly. I hated Nico, but his character was done very well. He is hot and charismatic, but also very manipulative and a narcissist.

It was kind of hard to read this story at some times because I just wanted to tell the girls to leave him and run away. I felt bad for the girls and couldn’t understand why they let him manipulate them like that.

This is a very different book than anything else I have read. It definitely gets in your head and makes you think. It twists your mind and makes you really think about what is happening.

I enjoyed this book. It was not like any other book I have read. It was nice to read something different, and not the same old thing!
