Review: House of Immortal Pleasures
BOOK REVIEW FOR HOUSE OF IMMORTAL PLEASURES BY KATIE SALIDAS
This book is for ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY. It contains substantial
sexually explicit scenes and graphic language which may be considered
offensive by some readers.
House of Immortal Pleasures is a Novella featuring Daphne, a young woman with a broken heart. The book opens with Daphne being 'kidnapped' by her two friends in the hopes of cheering her up, Daphne has recently broken up with her boyfriend.
The friends have blindfolded Daphne and are driving her to an unknown location. When the car finally stops and the secret spot is finally revealed, Daphne is both angry and ashamed. The girls have taken her to The House of Immortal Pleasure; a vampire brothel. Her friends refuse to leave before she has some 'fun'.
The novella also takes the POV of a vampire named Connor, who works at the House as a punishment for a crime he committed years ago.
Their stories intertwine: Connor's last night at the house is the same night that Daphne first goes there, and their lives cross as Daphne is pushed into spending the night with Connor.
Connor comforts her, trying to settle her nerves and knowing the truth of her former boyfriend; he vows to make it the best night possible for daphne. As the night goes on and Connor shows Daphne thins that she never thought possible, she finally feels free and cared for in the arms of the seductive vampire.
This Novella is, smart, funny, sexy and full of passion. Once the story comes to an end, twists weave themselves into the story leaving you hungry for more, the chemistry between Daphne and Connor is fantastic and I wish the story was longer. If you love passion and a little adult content this Novella is a must read!
