For some reason, I didn't book tours this week...which is good and bad...bad, because I have no giveaways to offer, but good because I am not frantically trying to get things posted. I will try to put in some of my reviews from the past few weeks and some of my musings...but, if you are looking for the tours, they will be back AFTER the 4th of July. Have a lovely holiday weekend!
4 out of 5 stars
Glimmer by Beth Kery is the first book in the
‘Glimmer and Glow’ series and introduces MBA graduate Alice Reed, who
has managed to obtain a position at a unique training camp that could be
the key to securing her future. Her intense attraction to Dylan Fall,
the CEO of the company that runs the camp, is inexplicably reciprocated,
and their heated affair elicits multiple complications, including the
issues from her past that threaten their future together. Dylan’s quest
to help her become all that she can be, in and out of the bedroom, has
frightening implications and Alice must decide whether the price to
fully accept everything that is being offered to her is too high to pay.
This intensely erotic contemporary story has
both eerie elements and a tantalizing mystery that combine in a
mesmerizing story. The gradual flowering of the relationship between
the suave, rich, self-assured, and somewhat kinky CEO and the naive,
newly-minted graduate is a vaguely familiar theme but the mysterious
twists in the story and the incandescent intimate encounters described
remind one of the author’s dexterity at creating a sizzling and
intriguing tale. I was a bit uncomfortable at some of the revelations
that teeter on the bounds of unethical behavior, given the inequity of
knowledge, but I can’t deny that I was drawn into the spell of the
story. The pragmatic explanation for the almost paranormal occurrences
is a nice twist, but I wasn’t quite ready for the story to end where it
did and I am anxious to read the next in the series.
