Book Review: "Rules of Seduction" (Joya Ryan)

Ava Webber is sick of taking others' orders for her life, especially when it comes to relationships. When she finally frees herself from a particularly oppressive situation, she goes looking for something that can give her pleasure, for once in her life, with no strings or demands attached ... unless she chooses them. And she thinks she's found what she's been looking for at Serve, a BDSM-themed nightclub.

Nolan Hart works at Serve, ensuring the safety and compatibility of clients with their express desires. When Ava arrives on the doorstep, clearly having been through a tough time, he's drawn to her, especially when he finds out she wants hot sex with a total stranger, and for it -to stay anonymous. Suddenly, after not committing to a relationship with a woman for a long time, Nolan wants to be the person Ava needs, in and out of Serve.

Entangled Publishing's Brazen imprint presents Rules of Seduction, the sexy erotic romance by Joya Ryan, released this month.

It's easy for an erotic romance to focus solely on the physical relationship between characters, and believe you me, there's plenty of smoking hot sex to satisfy both the genre requirements and reader expectations. The attraction between Ava and Nolan is scintillating and only heightened, for the longest time, by the anonymity and edginess of their relationship.

And yet, this relationship goes much further than just the bedroom. Each protagonist is well-rounded and comes with his or her (respectively) own hang-ups and pasts with which to deal throughout the story. Their chemistry extends beyond physical as Nolan and Ava spar verbally with one another, getting to know each other just as well outside the nightclub as inside it, although Ava doesn't realize that reality at first.

My favorite part was the snarky dialogue between the two, that quick back-and-forth full of one-liners that will leave you shaking your head only wishing that you could come up with comebacks like that on the spot so easily. These are some of the most believable, enticing (in every way) characters I've read in a long time.
