Initial reaction: I actually didn't realize this novel went back as far as it did for publishing and that it's actually a re-pub, but my biggest issue was how static the characters seemed despite some purportedly steamy scenes, alongside problematic scenes that just made my skin crawl despite reading it from a distant eye. It takes on the rather familiar premise (or was this one of the titles that shaped that particular premise - it's hard to tell) of a woman who's at the beck and call of her su ...more

Review from Way Too Hot Books

Mr. Gray, you got served! According to Goodreads, The Ninety Days of Genevieve was first published in... 1996. I tried to check that out, but I didn't manage to find any details about 1996. edition. If this information is not correct, please let me know. But if it is - my mind was trying to figure out how old I was back than and what I was doing. My innocent self was happily making fool of herself while dancing to Macarena, Where Do You Go and Un-Break My Heart or cr

I promised not to read any more of that romance/erotica crap, but I guess I`m not that good with promises.
Saw this one at the bookstore, always been a fan of nude photography (the cover of Latvian edition), so it got me hooked, I read the cover synopsis, realized I`ve got to give this one a try. I wasn't disappointed!
If you`re reading Genevieve for hot sex - thumbs up, it`s good, open minded, almost like an imaginative soft pornography, actually, dish the soft, it is pornography, but very enjoy

Hmm.. this book sure is different from all those 'Fifty Shades-like' books out there. You really need to be open-minded to be able to read this book!!

Genevieve wants nothing more then James Sinclair's signature at the bottum of a contract of the firm she works for.. James on the other hand has one little favor to ask of Genevieve before he signs, he wants her for ninety days, ninety days of submitting to his every desire, every sexual fantasie, she has to agree with every thing he tells her to

Genevieve is a woman willing to do anything for her career. So when James Sinclair might be interested in moving his accounts to her firm, she's ready to do just about anything to get his signature on those contracts. But James isn't interested in Genevieve for her professional savy, he wants to explore her sexual nature; a side of her that he knows is there - but a side that she's yet to set free.

Ninety days of being at his beck and

Oké, ben een leek in dit genre maar omdat dit opeens zo populair is wou ik het eens proberen. Wanneer ik een boek lees verwacht ik een goed plot en een paar goed uitgewerkte personagens 'Negentig Dagen Genevieve' stelde me hierin teleur: Op pagina 11 had hij haar vest, haar blouse en haar BH al uitgewerkt en was hij met haar borsten aan het spelen. Toen dacht ik: "Hallo vriend je hebt nog 260 pagina's te gaan. Hou je een beetje in!". Het duurde tot ver na de helft van het boek voordat ik de pers ...more

Oh My GOD!! Save yourself ! Save the time you would spend reading on this and Save the money you would spend... I am a very open minded person Ive read nearly all the BDSM books and erotic/romance out there but this just was at the bottom of them all . Ive read even the free books and we all know the free books we can get online from amazon are usually crappy but they were better then this book. !

I enjoyed reading this book, i liked the fact the the lead character was ambitious and willing to do anything to further her career, and if spending 90 days with a hot rich guy then so be it.
Theres alot of sex scenes in this book, but what i liked the most was the love story element of the book, as im a sucker for romance!

Master, se ci sei, batti un colpo….

Non appena ho iniziato la lettura di questo libro, mi sono immaginata la scena. Interno ufficio della casa editrice londinese: il caporedattore chiama la Carrington e le intima di tirar fuori il vecchio manoscritto un po’ porcellone che stava ingiallendo in un cassetto da una decina d’anni, riaggiustandolo alla luce del successo stellare di “Cinquanta sfumature di grigio”. Solo che stavolta - spiega il caporedattore - per dare un po’ di novità pruriginosa i pr

Genevieve Lofton wants to sign James Sinclair with her firm, she agrees to 90 days of whatever he wants. If she doesn’t back out he will give her his signature. But she must do everything he wants … trust me everything and anything he wants.

The character of Genevieve is focused only on business. She really doesn’t have time for romance or relationships. Being top at her firm is what she is focused on. She is sexy, but never really realized it, that is until James came along and helped her find

No soy una lectora mojigata, he leído muchas historias eróticas, pero esta me pudo. Entonces, ¿por qué no dejarlo? Porque me podía la curiosidad por saber "qué pitos tocaba" Jade Chalfont entre la singular relación entre James Sinclair y Genevieve Loften. El resultado, aún más decepción.

James Sinclair es un empresario millonario que busca una empresa de publicidad para su negocio y pone sus ojos en la pequeña agencia Barringtons, pero pone como condición para firmar el contrato que la señorita G

A delicious story on Genevieve acting out sexual fantasies she didn't even know she had and falling in love with the hero in control in the process. The telling was breathtakingly sensual. I was kept guessing most of the time, but goodness, what a heart-pounding journey it was! The motorcycle scene was arousing in the can't-catch-your-breath type of way. I would have like to know more from James' perspective, to see his emotional ties to her, but I guess that would have taken the fun out of the ...more

Sinceramente no conocí a los protagonistas, escasamente se conocen sus gustos peculiares de resto, ni idea. Las pocas conversaciones que tuvieron los protagonistas no son muy interesantes que digamos y da la impresión que Genevieve solo se casó por dinero y sexo, nada más.

Article first published as Book Review: The Ninety Days of Genevieve by Lucinda Carrington on Blogcritics.

The Ninety Days of Genevieve was first published over a decade ago, and has now been re-released with a subtle, simple new cover, which has a graphic proclaiming "If you like Fifty Shades of Grey You'll LOVE this!". I certainly don't blame anyone for jumping on thebandwagon, and I can definitely see the similarities between this book and the infamousFifty Shades.

However, although I liked Fif

Supongo que las editoriales al ver el "éxito mediático" que ha tenido 50 sombras, ha decidido sacar el máximo partido, y por este motivo las librerías se han llenado de libros cuya base es el BDSM combinado con descripciones altamente eróticas. "Los noventa dias de Genevieve" es uno mas. Me ha gustado, en primer lugar comprobar que el libro es de 1996, lo cual prueba que siempre ha habido este tipo de litaratura, aunque fuera dirigida a un publico muy concreto. Le he dado 2 estrellas, porque una ...more

Note: I was provided a free galley of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Ninety Days of Genevieve is not for everyone. It's definitely erotica, not just a sexy romance. So if you don't read erotica, be aware of that. It also seems slightly dated in places since it was originally released in 1996. The book also starts out with a bit of a sexual harassment style narrative.

The story focuses on Genevieve who enters into an unusual agreement with Mr. Sinclair. She will get

Fun to read when you are in the right mood and yes, far better than Fifty shades of Grey. But then, that isn't all that hard, is it? :-)

Negentig Dagen Genevieve (the Dutch edition of The ninety days of Genevieve) doesn't judge, has no plot to speak of and no in-depth characters, but that doesn't really matter, as that's not the reason why you picked up the book in the first place, or is it? The ending is a bit sugary, compared to the rest, but who cares. As I said, the book is just good fun to r

This book was just sooo bad, i can't even tell.
I mean I love the genre of more erotic novels but this
one wasn't really...romantic.
Basically It's about this rich guy James Sinclair who
gives Genevieve a contract to be his
for ninety days. Sexy right? You would think so!

He isn't nice to her in any way, calls her a whore
all the time... talk about a turn off, the book is just
so vulgar...

I get that erotic novels are popular now with
fifty shades (which i loved!!!) and all that but please...

Confesso que comprei o livro pelo nome, pois fiquei curiosa com nome.
Não estava à espera de que se torna-se uma espécie de romance com erotismo à mistura.
Não posso dizer que adorei, mas também não posso dizer o contrario. Visto de um certo prisma, acho que o livro faz-nos pensar sobre nós mesmos.
Até onde estamos dispostos a ir pelo sucesso profissional, ateonde estamos dispostos a ir ao deixar-nos envolver intimamente com estranho ou até mesmo ao deixar-nos ser observados durante o acto sexual,

Wow, a friend told me to check this out, and while the cover was less than enticing, I tried a sample. Real glad I did, and pleased to note a Brit wrote it. We are naughty but nice in Brit-land, lol. It's not a new publication, being written I believe in 1997. It is one of the most erotic books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down. The premise for the story is an unusual one, and it works. The writing does not appear dated, which is a tribute to the writers skill and way with words. Miss Carri ...more

šo grāmatu izvēlējos, jo man ieteica draudzene, sakot, ka tā ir līdzīga "Fifty Shades of Grey". Lai arī pašā sakumā darbs šķita valdzinošs, manas cerības ātri noplaka. Galvenie varoņi bija relatīvi pliekani un viegli paredzami. Pat erotiskās ainas nespēja uzlabot manu viedokli par šo stāstu. Tā kā tomēr izlasīju visu līdz beigām dodu 2 zvaigznes.

Normally I wouldn't write a review for it but it had been marketed as something similar to 50 Shades so I want you guys to beware.

This novel is not like 50 Shades and normally that would have been a complement coming from me since I didn't like 50 Shades trilogy at all, but this novel is a weird one where the kink is squeaky clean, the story is rather boring with very dry prose and you wait and wait for some sort of stimulation and it never comes.

The heroine is supposed to be this smart, compet

I was pleasantly surprised by this piece of erotica. Lucinda Carrington offers readers a glimpse into the world of fetish and kink that is non-judgemental and doesn't result from the characters having some awful secret in their pasts. It is a sweet romance with elements of kink and lots and lots of sexually charged encounters. What I liked was that at the core, this book is a romance and a happily ever after is anticipated and achieved. The sexual scenes move the story along. The premise of a se ...more

Se per 50 Sfumature il fatto era incentrato sul binomio Steel-Gray, questo è basato su Genevieve (identica all’appena citata Anastasia) e un ricchissimo uomo d’affari col vizietto della dominazione (Gray la vendetta, giusto qualche annetto in più.) Tanto per essere più chiari, Genevieve è una brillante pubblicitaria in una rinomata quanto competitiva azienda, che deve aumentare in tutti i modi il fatturato. Per questo verrà incaricata di trattare con, da cui subito si sente attratta (avevate dub ...more

Soms wel een beetje erotisch. Absurd dat ze aan het einde trouwen. Ze kennen elkaar alleen van absurde SM-seksspelletjes en nu houden ze voor altijd van elkaar. Flauwe vrouwenerotiek

A thoroughly uninteresting and forgettable woman sleeps with some rich guy to advance her career. Also: uninventive and equally forgettable sex scenes. ~Fin~
