ViewAs soon as I ead that the leading man in this story was an Irishman I knew he would be minefor a few hours anyways What I didn t expect was to ead a book with a great little plot and wonderful supporting secondary characters This turned out to be a great little surprise The book starts with journalist Abbie unning from some drug lord s thugs and jumping onto the plane of a Hollywood A list star Jack the Hollywood Hottie and Abbie immediately smolder with sexual tension and then proceed to just piss each other off for the next fifty pages Well we all know where sexual tension and anger lead to especially when one of the grumpies is a practicing Dom Big cliche here but eh pppfffftwhat do you do Not only is Jack a Dominant but he sees the potential for Abbie to be a little submissive Of course the outspoken and intelligent woman does NOT see herself in that sort of ole so it takes a bit of convincing I m wondering how often this happensDom meets woman wants her body bent over his knee and proceeds to form her into his perfect subFrom a trek through a vast jungle wilderness to the concrete jungles of NYC and LA to the gorgeous fairy tale of Ireland I was in love with the scenery The story never got stagnant because it was always moving to a new location and the plot itself was always moving forwardAbbie was a great heroinebelievable in her ignorance of the Ds lifestyle only because she didn t seem stupid about it She knew what it was but felt it a bit demeaning It takes Jack showing her that his paddles and bondage are a way for them both to open up and be completely honest with each other Jack is a bit of a tortured soul himself and doesn t necessarily practice what he preaches which causes some major oadblocks to pop up between he and Abbie While I eally enjoyed the book I thought that the BDSM aspect was way too light for this to eally be touted as that type of novel The threat for punishment and hard core kink was always simmering but Jack never delivers and I was disappointed This was VERY light bondage and a ton of spankingpaddling etc Another thing that bothered me were a couple of minor plot holesthings that the author sort of threw in late in the book that sort of came out of the blue and were never fully explained Nothing major but it did create a little hiccup for meI was headed for a three star but after finishing and contemplating it for a bit I ealize that I enjoyed the story enough for a four I kept wanting to ead without getting bored and at the end I eally was ooting for Abbie and Jack Let s hope he puts his weenie Dom foot down some in the future 5 blisteringly hot starsHere s my confessionIt was the the last day of 2012 and I was looking for a uick fun ead to tide me over until a book I had pre ordered was eleased the following day The eviews for The Pleasures of Winter were all over the place but I decided to give it a shot anyway after watching an entertaining interview with the 2 Irish authors who co wrote the book under the name Evie HunterAll I can say is holy yowza batman Yes this book falls firmly into the What to ead after Fifty Shades of Grey category but in my opinionand pay attention to me here peopleThis book blows Fifty Shades out of the water That s ight I said itimage erro.
