Desires by Galia Ryan #Giveaway





Desires by Galia Ryan

Description:


Anna is one of Elite Escort Agency's most popular call girls. She is quite comfortable living in the lap of luxury and pleasing a variety of wealthy men on her own terms; however, she longs to return to respectability. Only now she is accustomed to the best of everything. So Anna embarks on a quest to discover what else she is good for, other than dazzling every man who crosses her path.

Anna's calm is shattered when a former client resurfaces. A few years earlier Adam introduced Anna to bondage and submission. But although he held her in his thrall, Adam overestimated his power. When he demanded total surrender, she cut herself off from him forever. Now Adam is asking to see her again. Initially she refuses, but what can she do? She can't stop thinking about him.

The owner of Elite, Stephanie, is also haunted by memories of a former lover--Giancarlo, now married and dedicated to charitable work. When, after ten years, they come together once more, neither can resist the pull of their unresolved past, despite the possible consequences to Giancarlo's career.

Desires is Book 3 of the Luxuria Trilogy. It completes the cycle that began with Anna's story in Choices and Stephanie's in Secrets.




Review:

In Desires, we come full circle with Anna and Stephanie.  Anna has become one of Elite's most in demand ladies.  She is just trying to move on from a little bump in her way to happiness and is now enjoying all the luxuries her lifestyle can provide.  She still battles with herself and longs to return to the days before all the men, when she could look herself in the mirror and respect the reflection looking back out.  When Adam reappears back in her life, he shakes the new foundation she was building toward discovering herself again.  Once again, she can't fight the magnetic pull he seems to have over her.  

Stephanie is also being tormented by her past lover, Giancarlo.  They can't hide their unresolved feelings after all these years, even if Giancarlo's career and reputation hang in the balance.

I loved this series revolving around two strong leading females.  You will definitely want to read the first two books prior for back history.  Once again, this one is full of emotional turmoil between right and wrong, need and desire.  If you are looking for something different and a little off the beaten path, I would recommend this series.  Overall I give it 4 Stars!


Excerpt:

The club was full of fetish glam. The music was loud, and the red, blue, and green spotlights cleverly angled. Punks and Goths mingled with leather-clad Masters and mistresses. Slaves were being walked around on leashes. Naked breasts were on display everywhere. The crowd was as flamboyant as it was eclectic.
Adam took Anna’s hand, as if sensing her need for reassurance, and led her beneath a stone arch supported by Romanesque columns into a dimly lit room. Splayed across a pummel horse, a woman was moaning her gratitude as a leather strap came down on the quivering flesh of her backside. After watching closely for a moment, he untwined his fingers and settled his hand onher rubber-covered arse instead. It was a proprietary gesture, and the significance was not lost on her.
He leaned closer. “Do you wish you were her?”he wanted to know.
“No.”
“Lift your dress. I want to feel you.”
The tight rubber had moulded to her body to form a second skin. Before she could do as he’d asked she had to peel it away. It wasn’t easy. The rubber was good quality and difficult to stretch.After a lot of surreptitious pulling and tugging, the dress was high enough to please.
“Much better, he whispered in her ear.
She felt the warmth of his palm as he stroked and caressed the rounded flesh of her arse, but it was nothing like the heat that had risen into her face. Others would be watching, noting what Adam was doing to her and rating her compliance. She turned slightly to confirm her suspicionand saw a Mistress tug on her slaves collar and slap his face. She wondered what he might have done to incur such wrath. Stolen a forbidden look at another woman, perhaps?
Adams hand wandered farther, finding its way down between her cheeks. Wanting to please, she moved a little and parted her legs to give him better access.
“It turns you on.” His lips formed the words against her neck.
Knowing he was referring to the scene being enacted on the pummel horse, she shook her head.
“No, she said quietly.
“Perhaps not the thought of pain, but watching has made you wet.”
She was silent.
“Perhaps we should visit the dungeon.”
