Delicious and Devine (Blog tour)

Well, y'all were here for Alison's Dark Secret Love Tour, when she stopped by and answered a few questions for us.

Today, I bring you a review of part two of her tale. In The Delicious Torment, it's fair to say that our heroine,Sam, has herself in a hell of a situation - and she's loving every minute of it. Even if Jack keeps her off balance.

She delves further into the darkest corners of his mind - all the while trying to find her way into his heart. With the further introduction of Alex into their relationship, Sam is constantly questioning her place with Jack. The paths he leads her down are darker than the ones she's been down before, and although she seems reluctant to accept that this is what she wants as well, she's eager to show him she'll do anything to please him.

Even when it involves watching him with another woman while her heart gets ripped from her chest.

The use of Alex as another tool in Jack and Sam's arrangement is nothing short of mesmerizing. I find myself liking Alex more and more, and disapproving more of Jack. I find him over-the-top arrogant, and, in certain places, totally without a soul. With Alex, you can see through his snotty veneer, and maybe it's because he mirrors Sam in so many ways, that he tugs at my heart.

When he's at his most vulnerable, I want to take him in my arms and rock him like a child. It's moments like that when I wish Sam would turn her back on Jack, despite the fact that he is giving her exactly what she wants, even though she's never quite aware of that in the moment. But I can't see her and Alex making a genuine go of it, as they are remarkably similar, and that would lead to boredom and confusion rather quickly.

I'll admit - I know nothing of BDSM apart from reading about it. But this series so far, gives readers a good insight into the world, without window dressing. It strips it bare, and is unapologetic for it. Alison's writing has always been honest and straight forward. It's pretty without being obvious. And it appears effortless, though most of us know better.

The results are always highly entertaining plot lines, characters to fall in love with, and an insatiable appetite for the next one.

As always, when it comes to Alison's books, I am on the edge of my seat, eagerly anticipating the rest of the journey.
