Sweet Rush of Passion Reviews
On plot alone, this book is about three stars but the politically correct hero, sympathetic husband, and beautiful setting made it a four star read overall. If you want the vintage appeal of a bodice ripper with the tact and consensual sexuality of a modern hero, look no further. I'm torn about the heroine though. I think she was well developed internally towards the end but up to that point I couldn't stand how she betrayed her loving, devoted husband. Pavel Pavelovich (the husband) had a great personality, was gentle, and catered to her every need. I have to say - I'm team Pavel! lol. I also hated that the heroine never told her husband or the hero about the brutal sexual blackmail and rape of Boris, the closest thing to a villain in the book. I kept expecting her to reveal what he did and see him get his ass handed to him but sadly she felt too ashamed of the experience to ever tell. I feel like both the men in her life proved themselves to be understanding, forgiving, and non-judgmental enough to trust this secret with, but she still never told! Also, I should warn that several tragedies happen near the end that will require a tissue. At least I needed one. Lastly, I wish there had been more dialogue and meaningful development of the heroine's and the hero's relationship instead of constant sex (never thought I'd say that haha). The hero was pretty witty and fun and the heroine was charming enough. It's a shame they weren't given more conversation and banter.
