The Secret Lives of Emma :Distractions (Book #2)
Genre: Erotic Fiction
After a steamy affair with her young neighbour, Emma Benson flees to her friend Sally’s beach house to recharge her emotional batteries. Her marriage to David has been going through a testing time, but now she’s determined to be the wife he would like her to be.
If only it was that easy.
How do you tame a woman who’s brimming with uninhibited sensual desires, a woman for whom pleasure is the ultimate goal in life?
Sally’s beach house is the perfect place to relax and reconnect with a secret relationship Emma had thought had ended years before.
But then the arrival of David at the beach house reignites her fantasies – and offers her a temptation she can’t help acting upon.
I don’t know if it is the way it is written that is throwing me off with these books, but they still don’t meet up to my expectations however this one was slightly better than the first. I did find the storyline in some parts to drag but we did get more insight into the characters and somewhat deplorable that they are. It was nice to see Emma grow somewhat towards to end of the read, turning down Paul though David’s turn was shocking.
In the first book we didn’t get much of David or know much about him, but in this read we got introduced to him fully. Starting off me seemed to be so moral and upstanding, it made me dislike Emma so much for what she has been down behind his back but it all came tumbling down rather quickly and his true colours were shown. He and Emma are truly perfect for each other, each self-destructive and making bad choices.
I was sure that when this second installment was finished I wasn’t going to continue on with this series, but with such a cliff-hanger ending and all the lies and secrets stating to unravel, I am tempted to buy the next book. I am curious to know how this will all work out. I am torn was to whether to go a full three stars with this or a two and a half, so I will settle with a borderline three stars.
