I started with this book because I was so curious to see what is going to happen next after the cliffhanger and the end of book 1.

My goodness!!! I only came to the part where she accepted the Queen Bitch's proposal and thought... nuh-uh!! Not going to torment myself any further.. What a disturbing, scary (in a very disturbing way) book!?

Can't help to worry about the mental well being of the author, seriously. Will not even attempt to read book #3. *shivers* gave me nightmares :(

First off, this trilogy is NOTHING like Fifty Shades of Grey so if you're thinking of buying these because of the FSOG references then you're going to be disappointed.

I'm not sure what the author was trying to achieve with this trilogy. It seemed a tangled effort of his and her POV's and flashbacks and I didn't think the story flowed at all.

Neither of the main characters were likeable..she was just a nodding dog and he was just a freaky scientist getting his kicks with medical experiments. I've

De verdad pocas veces me he topado con libros como este, no logro entender que las referencias que tenía le den 4 y 5 estrellas y hablen de que es una historia muy romántica, cuando realmente se trata de un libro perturbador.

La protagonista realmente no solo no me generó empatía, sino que hasta cierto pundo me hizo sentir repulsión. No logro concebir que una mujer que sea secuestrada y chantajeada decida participar de muy buen agrado en una serie de experimentos donde no sabe si está exponiendo

This was sent to me by Avon and unfortunately I haven't read the first book in the series, so I'll have to just give you my thoughts on the second book. Let me first say this, this book was definitely in the same vain as the Fifty Shades trilogy but with some nice background story and written nicely. Being as this is the second book in a series, I wasn't sure how I'd take to it as a stand alone book. Sometimes when you pick a book up that's in the middle of a series, you don't get the full impac ...more

Secondo volume di una trilogia sempre più assurda.
Motivazioni per cui una persona, nel pieno delle sue facoltà mentali, dovrebbe leggere il secondo volume di una trilogia sempre più assurda:
A) Ti hanno visto leggere il primo volume, e ti hanno gentilmente omaggiato del secondo; e tu non vuoi deludere il prossimo;
B) Il tizio che ti piace se l’è legata al dito perché hai dato una sola stellina al primo volume, cioè al suo regalo, e tu non vuoi deludere ulter

Sexy, suspenseful and, in places, completely ludicrous, the second novel in Indigo Bloome's Avalon trilogy makes interesting bedtime reading. Picking up from the cliffhanger ending of Destined to Play, Destined to Feel opens with Dr Alexandra Blake being abducted in London. Her captors? The owner of a pharmaceutical company who want to develop a drug that they believe will be the female equivalent to Viagra. Alex is the perfect woman to test their new drug, due to the comprehensive and well docu ...more

I read Destined to Feel immediately after finishing the first book. The subject matter of both books is completely beyond belief which leads to my dilemma in what to think of the books. They are like the Glee mash ups of popular fiction. Take S&M erotica, mash it with a little scientific sci-fi and throw in a bit of psychological thriller for good measure. The author is obviously trying to write on the coat tails of FSOG but trying to make it different by adding the scientific breakthrough a ...more

Purchased at half price along side Destined to Play, the first book in the series. Encouraged to buy by W H Smith who have large posters in their windows stating that "if you liked FSOG you'll love this" and an image of Destined to Feel, which on further investigation, inside the store, I thought was a little odd as Play is the first in the series - why promote a second in series book? Oh well.

Read Play within 24 hours, it was okay - certainly not as good as FSOG or Sylvia Day's Crossfire series

I liked having the story told from the two perspectives of Alex and Jeremy. I was a little annoyed with Alex's abduction and her consequent reaction to it. Overall, though I liked the book and will be reading the final part due to, once again, a clever twist/cliffhanger at the end! Also sorta wish I had a love like Jeremy and Alex's - finally a romantic connection that's built up over years not mere weeks!!

Absolutely loved it. Will definately be reading the next addition to this series. Indigo has done another awesome job. I love how much Jeremy adores Alexa and am so glad he has finally realised what he has been missing all those years. I so hope they will finally get their happy ever after.

The second in the intensely erotic Avalon series that started with Destined to Play. Perfect for anyone who was seduced by 50 Shades of Grey.

Psychologist Alexandra Blake has been awakened sexually by her lover, Jeremy Quinn. Their erotic journey has seen Alexandra explore her innermost sexual fantasies and pushed her boundaries to their very limit.

Her world is plunged into uncertainty when she is abducted in London and Alexandra finds herself caught up in a dangerous game being played ou

This is the second of the Avalon Trilogy I have read. The first book was amazing. I am not quite so fond of the second one. In book one Jeremy was portraied as a man who is sure of himself and can handle everything and is ever so secure and cool in everything he does. He also knew how to ride a motor bike, parachute, etc. He was just your perfect guy. In book two we get to see a very unsure of himself Jeremy who bumbles along silly, hurts himself and half the time doesn't he

The first book, Destined to Play, really blown me away. The text was inventive, erotically charged and was ending in a cliffhanger with the capture of Alexandra. So I longed to put my hands on the sequel very badly ...

However, past the first scenes of kidnapping, I was bored. The arrival at the castle and the whole espionage and treason aspects has not kept my imagination alert. So, I found this part a bit long.

Certainly, it is still well written. Certainly, eroticism is always present even in t

I didn't like this story as much as Destined to Play and I think it's because it wasn't as passionate between the two main characters as in the first book, actually there wasn't much passion at all. But of course the reason why was because this book is about Alexa's abduction and what her abductors wanted from her.

This book is about FEEL and how the body reacts to it, no one touches Alexa during the experiment (one thing she stipulated) but she watches others act out sexual acts and her body is

I was quite intrigued by the first in the series and picked up the second one today just to see where it all went. I read it in one session this afternoon and now wish I'd have spent the afternoon cleaning the house instead of reading this utter tosh.

with hindsight, the thing that made the first book better was the interplay between the characters - they are really into one another. Unfortunately for all but the last 30 pages of this book the characters are separated, so the only action is exper

I actually enjoyed this installment more than the first one. And I did enjoy the first one. Its been nearly 2 years since I read Destined to Play so I'm glad Destined to Feel gives a very brief recap from both our main characters perspectives.

I was somewhat disappointed that the actual experiments with Xsade were fairly glossed over and that we see the entire experimentation in one chapter. After all Alexa's captivity is supposed to be a huge part of the book, and despite being kidnapped right a

This was my second attempt at trying to read Destined to Feel, though I had thoroughly enjoyed the first I really struggled to get into this. My second attempt found me pushing to read it more just because I already had the third in my possession.

It begins quickly, and it's fast tempo'd but I found it slowed down considerably. I found myself skipping over a lot Jeremy's POV, or just scanning it because I really didn't care what he had to say, my mind and heart were with AB. I worried for her in

Di questo libro ho ricordi vari. Solo che Alexa vomitava di tanto in tanto e orgasmava quando non doveva. E c'era una sadica fissata con l'aspetto che manco Crudelia deMon. Dimenticabilissimo seguito di "Incontri Proibiti", qua e là ravvivato da un cambio di POV improvviso, in cui il nostro Jeremy - l'uomo del destino di Alexa, colui dal grande Ding Dong conquistatore, ci tiene a farci sapere che il suo gallo è in tiro con frasi del tipo:
Anche il solo pensiero di lei mi fa formicolare il membro.

I still don't like the jumping back & forth between views but it wasn't bad the end of the 2nd book leaves me wanting to start the 3rd right away just to see what her decision is going to be. Being kidnapped by an Eastern European drug company & put thru tests thinking it's for something her former & now current lover is involved with. She agrees only to find out when the tests are supposed to be done that they aren't looking at what he was involved in but what surprising things he's ...more

This book this book this book.
I'm blaming the author for being a sneaky little genius.
Because this is a book that you're not supposed to like... It's crazy and half the time you're just left there wondering what to think about what's happening.
But it's so intriguing and interesting that you want to read more and more.
And more importantly its so damn HOT, that's what got me really. I usually get bored when I keep seeing the same scenes but this book just throws you for a loop.

As I did not feel too impressed with the first book in the series, I did not have my hopes up for the second installment. However I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The plot felt more realistic. Alexandra was portrayed to think more about her kids and the consequences of her actions although she was also under duress (pleasureably no less). This installment was easy to read, there was no negative feelings, the flow was much better than the first book. Intimate feelings were invoked (after al ...more
All I have to say is WHAT THE HELL was this Bull, She gets captured and automatically doubts Jeremy WHAT? Then she agrees to the tests to learn more about herself Sexually ? ? ? ? WHAT ? ? ? Personally if I wanted to learn about myself I would MUCH RATHER do it with someone I am comfortable with, Someone who hasn't kidnapped me and isn't recording everything to eventually black mail me with later. Alex just bugs me she questions everything to the minute details yet she makes the dumbest mistakes ...more
Destined to Feel may even be stranger than the first. I just can't seem to imagine that (view spoiler) Maybe similar things have happened but it's just very hard to believe in this sort of scenario.

It was also rather slow going, but there were a few things I liked in this one; mostly the scenes where (view spoiler)
