Heroine: Cadence – Prostitute, Aspiring Businesswoman
Hero: John Zane – Business Mogul, Kinky
Hero: John Cruze – Actor, Sweet
Cadence is a prostitute out of necessity. She doesn't usually enjoy it. Often times, she really doesn't enjoy it. But unfortunate circumstances led her to a career spent on her back and she's not going to apologize for it. But she is going to try to leave it behind and move on—once she fulfills one last assignment from her pimp. Which she knows isn't going to be pleasant. At all.
But when Cadence shows up at the assigned hotel room, expecting a client with kinky tastes or a penchant for pain or something equally horrible, what she gets is John Cruze. A man who is sexy beyond words, sweet and tentative. There is no wham bam thank you ma'am from John Cruze—he actually wants Cadence to experience pleasure too. Which, in her world, rarely happens.
Which should've sent up some red flags. Cadence should've realized that John wasn't her client when the night was too good to be true. And when her actual client gets mad and forcibly brings her to him... Well, he's also a surprise. And also named John. John Zane is a dark and twisted man. A man who always gets what he wants... and what he wants is Cadence, exclusively, for six months.
John... or John...? What a problem to have. The sweet actor or the dark businessman. Is there an option to pick both? I know John Zane is supposed to be the villain but I can't help but be drawn to him. For a man so in control, there's a sense of vulnerability that calls to me. Plus, not going to lie, I like his brand of kinky. But I also can't deny the chemistry between John Cruze and Cadence.
Blurred Lines (Volumes 1-4) is seriously kinktastic. Like the movie Pretty Woman... if Richard Gere was a sexual sadist. I didn't expect to be so drawn into this story, but I was. The way it starts out—gritty, raw and incredibly seedy—I was hooked. This isn't a glamorous portrayal of prostitution. But it is definitely sexy in a depraved way. And oddly tender at times too. I can’t wait to read the next four installments. I need more of the Johns!
