Where I got it: From Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review
"It's simple. No sight. No questions. Forty-eight hours." An intensely charged erotic journey, perfect for anyone who was seduced by 50 Shades of Grey.
When thirty-seven-year-old psychologist Alexandra Blake leaves her comfortable suburban existence to travel for a series of lectures, she meets up with Dr. Jeremy Quinn, the man who opened her eyes and body to the world in ways she never thought possible. After a few glasses of champagne in his luxurious hotel penthouse, he presents her with an extraordinary proposition. Alexandra knows that they never promise each other something they can't commit to and that he will challenge her every inhibition. But she soon finds herself seduced into a level of surrender—and danger—she could never have imagined.
Destined to Play is the first book in the Avalon Trilogy exploring the intricate relationships between trust and betrayal, desire and love, risk . . . and reward.
I have to admit, I liked the premise of Destined to Play more than I enjoyed the reality of the book. It started out great – a weekend away with an old boyfriend with no strings and a few minor rules? Totally has potential, right?! However, beyond that idea, the plot got a little more scientific than I was expecting, and a little less on the character interaction.
That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the book, but it was a little unbalanced between smarts and fun to get a rave review from me. I could definitely see this appealing to scientific types a little more, because it was in that element quite a bit.
However, science-y plot aside, the cliffhanger ending definitely makes me want to pick up the next book in the trilogy when it comes out!
