Today I'm hosting Pavarti K. Tyler and her newest project, Sugar & Salt (A Sugar House Novella). Be warned, this a Erotica, or more specifically Erotic Romance and intended for readers over 18. Check out my review below and make sure to enter the giveaway Pav has put together with free paperbacks and eBooks from some of the best Indie Erotica authors around.
Wow! Even though I had an idea of what Sugar and Salt was about, I was utterly blown away. I've enjoyed everything this author writes and this has to be by far her best. Still though, I was unprepared by the depth of the story line and characters.
Janice Cane runs an upscale brothel to the rich and famous. She cares about her "brood", her employees, seeing to their well-being. She is confident in her business dealings, but is she on a personal level. Upon meeting Salt, it made me wonder.
Devon Salzmann is an intriguing man. Well educated, well traveled and well brought up it is quite obvious he's a man used to getting his own way. And that means pursuing Janice at all costs, even being on the sharp end of her verbal jousts.
The sexual scenes are well thought out and written. I have found that writing erotica these days draws critics of how it's written like moths to the flame. Everyone is either an expert or a critic. Ms. Tyler's sex scenes smolders.
Secondary characters are delightful and engaged and I can easily see them in their own sequel(s). There were a couple of lingering back stories to this book that were never totally dealt with here, but I can also seeing them being weaved into the story of Janice and Salt as the series progresses. I look forward to the next book in this series.
Well done Ms. Tyler!
I received an advance copy in exchange for my honest review.
