Shock, then disappointment, and blah. This wasn’t’ a bad book. It was more tame than the other two. A lot less kink and more of a journey. For two people in love, they don’t have a clue about communicat

In the third book of the Eighty Days trilogy Summer and Dominik finally find their way back to each other.

"it's not like there's a moratorium on orgasms, darling. You're allowed to have more than one."

"I've never had more than one."

"Well then, all your former lovers ought to be ashamed of themselves."

Favorite Lines - "Good girl" he said "You like it the Catholic way, I take it?" & "Everything is about compromise. And love is biggest compromise of all."

"Nothing could follow Summer & Dominik. Others would never match the intensity of what he had witnessed. Best end on a high."

This sums up the whole series for me, this one quote explains my feelings for the three books. I hope one day to find an as interesting & testing series but i wonder deep down if it is even poss

The two years in a steady relationship with Simôn, the Venezuelan conductor who is deeply in love with her have left Summer Zahova feeling cared for, protected and soothed but also… bored. And after she reads the book Dominik wrote, the book he dedicated to her, the book that was clearly inspired by her, she knows she can never settle for a quiet life with Simôn. Leaving New York and the man who deeply loves her behind, Summer returns to London, the city where it all began for her. There she hoo ...more

I'm not even going to waist my time! After 2 weeks of my life spent reading this trilogy that I will never get back; I am left unfulfilled and extremely disappointed. This book wasn't as bad as the first, but it was worse than the second. It ends with (view spoiler) ...more
I need more Viggo! One of my favorite side characters. So I'm not shelving this as dark erotica like the previous books because, well, while this book was romantically frustrating and there were some hot scenes, there was nothing dark about it. There was quite a bit of ménage à trois, but most of the scenes were fade to black. This was definitely the tamest book in the series, but possibly one of the best because of Viggo. Oh Viggo. I want a book from his POV! Please authors :)

A perfect continuation to where we left off in Eighty Days Blue. I found this installment to be a bit calmer than the other two in the series, not as rough in the BDSM scene and the sex is mellower. There are still plenty of erotic scenes, some F/F action, multiple partner scenes, BDSM elements and the anticipation is there just as in the others and it’s still an intriguing read that sucks the reader in its pages just as the others. Any reader of the erotic genre will also get sucked into Summer ...more

I didn't like book 1&2, but wanted to know the resolution. It was anticlimatic.

It is very rare to read a book and get absolutely nothing from it. This was one of those times. What did the author wish to impart with this book nd/or series? What did the author intended as her message or point? What should one remember about this book?
The plot was weak, the sex scenes though provocative, were not that enjoyable to me. The heroine & hero were both really pathetic because they lacked selfawareness!

Thank God for book three.

I loved this one the most. i am not even going to go into detail, but for those who have read the first two, this was my personal favorite. Because it brings Summer and Dominik back together, eventually. She loses her violin and Dominik finds out about the violins previous owners. He is trying to write a book and he looks into the history of Summers violin that he bought for her. And when he bumps into her and finds out she lost it he helps her to find it. The spark is s

The series continued we got a greater view to summer feelings for Dominick and how stubborn they are and how much they missed each other but also understood each other about the faults they had. We also understood that summer was capable to have normal relationship but with some spice meaning Dominick. We also got a chance to understand lauryanne she was a true friend I liked her and Viggo he was adorable you couldn't hate him. He was fun, sexy and in the end loveable because he brought the stub ...more

Well finally. When I started reading this series, I wasn't sure if it was for me. I eventually wasn't shocked by what they went through. I actually just wanted to finnish the story. I really didn't like the direction that the author took this complicated love story, in the 1st book.

I was over all the sex, some times thats neither here nor there, that didn't bother me. The story in the 2nd book started to save this tale from the abyss it was heading towards. Then it ended & they still weren't tog

A fantastic conclusion to Summer and Dominik's story! The ending was perfect and so... them! I loved every second of it. ...more
More 33.5 stars than 4.

I liked because:

a. It's the last one.
b. HEA.
c. The story of the violin.

I expected a lot better trilogy... just too... tiring.

Lauralynn describes the relationship between Summer and Dominik very simple and sees it how it actually is. She is only a minor character and appears repeatedly in dialogues between Summer and Dominik. In a way, she smoothes the waves every now and then and calls out t

Article first published as Book Review: Eighty Days Red by Vina Jackson on Blogcritics.

When I first heard about this series, I believed it would be a trilogy, so I was a tad confused when this was changed. However, I now get it. This is still a trilogy, of sorts, with Eighty Days Red being the last in a certain storyline. The next books go on to deal with different characters, which I'm very much looking forward to.

Anyway, onto this book. Eighty Days Red, in my opinion, is the best of these thre

Okay this is a first for me. I never read a series out of order. And to be honest I didn't feel lost or confused about what was going on in the story. So that is a positive. I am sure I missed a lot of back story but I am okay with that.

Now on to the rest of the story...I really wanted to like it I really did and there were some things that I did enjoy about it. There is a sweet romance under it all but there was more that I didn't care for. I love a book that is descriptive I truly do; this tho

EDIT: I just realized, after I read the book, that this is the 3rd book of the trilogy and I haven't even read the two first.. I should probably have noticed it while I read the book but the book did not confuse me. I didn't get the feeling of I missed any pieces to fully understand it.

This book took me less than a day to finish haha, I needed to read something and I had this one near me, so I thought why not. It captured me, but I thought the ending was a little thin. I liked the beginning of t

And what better way to start a new year than by finishing a book!

I usually can't go to sleep without reading first - regardless of the time - so in this case we saw new year in, went to bed, I read and poof, that's how my first book of 2013 was finished!

Unfortunately it was not a great book :( This book is number three in the trilogy and to be honest with you I'm pleased this book - and trilogy - is over. This book was by far the worst of the three but I needed to know the end (I

First off, the covers of the Eighty Days trilogy are amazing and provocative. The books themselves are masterpieces.

Spoiler Alert*

Going beyond the bounds of erotica, Vina Jackson's trilogy explores not the world of kink but the characters that live just within it's bounds. Throughout there is almost a love triangle formed by Summer, Dominik, and the Bailly. In the first book, the soundtrack of classical solo's and trystly quartets, suits the burgeoning romance. In the sequel, the soundtrack it

The third book of Eighty Days series starts two years after Summer and Dominic split. Summer is punishing herself with running in cold weather, she is living with Simon (nice vanilla Simon) and Dominic has written a book that is basically a story about Summer and shares apartment in London with Lauralynn.

This story is the weirdest of them all. There is this love story. Meeting old friends and making new friends. And then there is this strange criminal mystery and a lot of music and traveling. It
