"4 Cups!...Helen is a fabulous role model for women who fear aging. Ms. Dane has given readers a heroine who could be any woman on the street. Helen's characterization is extremely well done. The younger man - older woman scenario is well written. If you are looking for a striking contemporary story that is sensual and steamy, then pick up Pleasure for a very satisfying reading experience."--Susan, Coffee Time Romance
"...An erotic delight, but it's also a wonderful story about a woman discovering herself after years of being what everyone else expects of her...Helen is intelligent, compassionate, and passionate...Fallon is a bit of an enigma, but that only serves to make him even more appealing. The sensuality...is off the charts and the characters are compelling. A story that is a pleasure to read on many levels, I highly recommend Pleasure."--Isabelle Spencer, RRT Erotic
"5 Hearts!...This is a very sensual, erotic story that will not only give the reader lots of tingles but will also stir her very heart with the warmth and romance too...This reviewer was positively melting away while reading this story. The heat is intense, the romance sweet and the ending is so good, it was perfect. Ms. Dane blends erotica and romance to give the reader a very satisfying story."--Valerie, Love Romances and More
"...Helen is a wonderful character with a lot of personality and a good head on her shoulders...The ending was heartwarming and pulled the story together for me. I will definitely look for more of Ms. Dane's books to read."--Robin, MyBookCravings.com
"5 Angels!...Appropriately named for this is one woman's journey to break free of the restraints binding her and enjoy being a desirable woman...Fallon is a man every woman would love to have for her own...He and Helen set the pages on fire with their intense and frequent sexual encounters, but the romance that is subtly interwoven by author Adrianna Dane garnered lasting praise from this reader. I highly recommend it."--Scarlet, Fallen Angel Reviews
"...Took me by surprise. I was expecting one type of story and was pleasantly surprised when I received something else entirely. Fallon is a sensual professional but he never includes sex as part of the deal. Helen has been the respectful and loving mom, wife and businesswoman for the majority of her life...and now wants something just for her...Pleasure brings to mind that not everyone needs the wedding and white picket fence to find their 'happy ever after.' I fell for the sensual Fallon and the practical Helen from the beginning and regretted when their story had ended. Pleasure will have a special place on your sensual bookshelf--it does on mine, now."--Jo, Joyfully Reviewed
"4 Hearts!...Ms. Dane has built a fine story here. She includes voyeurism, some M/M behavior but it’s well done and very sensual. Helen goes from a frustrated woman to one who’s been well fulfilled in ways that allow her to take charge of her life. Fallon’s story shows how one man can turn pain and heartache into the good life. Ms. Dane builds her stories piece by piece so they all fit together as if they were real life. This is a very good read."--Dee Dailey, The Romance Studio
...She pressed a hand to her pussy. The need was painful. She had to get some relief or she’d be all over him in a minute, begging for it.
After slipping off the robe and her nightgown, she climbed onto the bed, naked. Reaching up, she cupped her full breasts. For an old broad she wasn’t in such bad shape. She’d always exercised, kept herself toned. She participated in the local marathon to raise funds in support of breast cancer every year. Was it so wrong to want a little carnal pleasure for herself?
Her fingers rolled the nipples, causing sharp spasms of painful pleasure to rock through her. For too many years she’d gone without. After being burned by Allen and his infidelities, she’d shied from any kind of intimate commitment with anyone else. Trust didn’t come that easily for her.
Why now? Why did she need this right this minute? What had changed so drastically in her life to drive her to hire an escort? It felt like emotions were shifting inside her. That she’d come to a point where she needed to re-evaluate her life.
Her hands slid down over her ribs to her abdomen. Her fingers slipped along her engorged lips to encounter wetness, evidence of her arousal, and she sucked in a breath.
It didn’t make sense, yet she had felt a wild rebellion building inside her for some time. She fought against acknowledging it—so hard. There were times when she stood in her office ready to scream. I want out of this life. I want more.
Two of her fingers slid inside her vagina, through the liquid heat instilled by passionate fantasy, and she gasped at the sensation. Her thumb twirled over her clitoris, engorged with memories of the sexy man.
If she were honest with herself, she had enjoyed the encounter, both in the dining room and in the bar. She’d liked watching him with the woman. She’d fantasized about being that woman, yet some part of her had enjoyed being apart from it, watching their interaction. Even in watching, she had almost felt a part of them. Her body tingled at the memory.
What was happening to her? Her blood felt like molten lava ran through her veins, hot and pulsing. She was ready to explode.
Her fingers slid slickly in and out of her pussy, her hips arching up from the bed, legs splayed wide. One hand returned to her nipples, tugging and pinching, sending sharp sensations running through her, arrowing downward.
Oh, God, she needed to come. In honesty, she had never felt this level of passion in her life. She wanted Fallon between her legs. Her fingers drove more forcefully inside her, pushing her toward a searing pinnacle.
What was he doing right now? Was he fucking the beautiful young woman? She could see two bodies lying naked on a bed. She fantasized about what he would be doing to her. Was she a client, as Helen would be?
She could see his dark head between the woman’s creamy thighs as he sucked at her clit, could feel his mouth on her own body. Oh, yes, it would feel absolutely sensational. She could feel his tongue stabbing deep inside her, lapping at the juices. Her fingers on her body became more frantic.
After he brought his partner to climax, he would rise above her. She felt his cock at her entrance as she added another finger to her own pleasuring. She arched upward on the bed, searching for release...
