Series: House of Sin #1
Published by Self-Published on 4/18/15
You say you want to know what's going on in a man's head during sex? Well, Jack Willow is about to take you on a wild ride.
Hot, obsessive, and emotionally unavailable, Jack's a man who's always gotten what he wants . But when he meets a naive, young girl named Leah and pulls her into the seedy underbelly of an underground sex club, he not only gets what he wants, he gets more than he bargained for. Jack's secret world is built on darkness and depravity and the further Leah gets involved in his house of sin, the more she craves it. The more she needs it. And the more dangerous it gets.
Unfortunately, the sex that brings them together is also the sex that could tear them apart.
Filthy, filthy, filthy. This book was fucking filthy!
**Explicit content ahead. You’ve been warned**
I will read almost anything. Usually when people say that, they don’t usually mean it, but I do. I mainly read romance, because it’s the genre that makes me the happiest, and within that genre, I typically read contemporary, emotional, character driven stories. But I love my smut too. I used to gorge on smut, but then I made myself sick, so naturally I took a break from only consuming erotica. Once in a while though, the smut calls to me and I heed the call. House of Sin was just the right flavor of what I was craving, and if you’re ever in the mood, I recommend you give this one a try.
I was recommended this book by a friend, and when she gifted it to me, she said (I’m paraphrasing), “The writing’s straight forward, and it’s different so people will like that, but it’s pretty damn dirty. Cum all over the place!” I had to read it after she said that, lol. How could I not?!
House of Sin is an erotic novella from the male POV. You heard right, the male POV. It follows Jack, a recovering sex addict, and Leah a farm girl who decides to feed her sexual curiosity and explore a grittier side of sex. Jack’s a rockstar during the weekend (he has another job, but it’s a mystery until the very end), and Leah sells organic cherries at the farmer’s market. Two opposites. Magnetic connection. Smoking hot sex. Oh, yeah…
Reading Jack’s POV as he ushered Leah into the world of sex clubs, multiple partners, BDSM, and (mild)drugs was what I liked most about this book. He was totally unapologetic about who he was and seeing Leah through his eyes was so much fun. He’s misogynistic and he doesn’t treat most women well, but I loved seeing him soften toward Leah. He once only cared about getting laid and satisfying his insatiable sexual hunger, but Leah sinks her teeth into him, and…well, I can’t tell you everything! Where’s the fun in that?
House of Sin is very explicit. Triple X explicit. It’s erotica/smut and it doesn’t pretend to be anything else. If you don’t like descriptions of cum shots, then stay the hell away. There was enough of a story and character development to keep me interested, so I’m glad I gave it a try. I did find a few grammatical errors, but it wasn’t enough to distract me. I actually became more engaged as the story went on, and the end was a great surprise. I liked this story, and I’m really looking forward to part 2 (the last installment). I’d recommend it to anyone who likes dirty, raunchy reads. Go on and read it. You know you want to. 😉
