Quickies were fine and they had their place, but teasing, anticipation and denial...



Rapt was a drawn out foreplay of a story, forever keeping us on the edge, every page bringing us closer and closer to relief. Jessica Sinclair works for Lucas Wright and for months they have played a delicious game of resisting, denial and anticipation; every meeting, every look, the sound of his voice puts her on edge. Lucas senses the matching need in Jessica and makes a play to win her over showing her howstars

SULTRY AND SO SEDUCTIVE...

I love this book, though it's short it's long enough to make you blush, hot and bothered. Erotic with a bit of romance, a mouse and cat game played by Lucas Wright and Jessica Sinclair that ended with an unforgettable, titillating, sultriest night ever. It's a tease, the way Lucas and Jessica danced around their undeniable attraction to each other. Each one anticipating their encounter, teasing, testing who is going to give in, who's going to make the first

Rapt is an interesting book about a subject I know very little about. It is a short erotic romance novella all about denial of sexual release. Apparently this is a thing that some people crave. Some people, like Lucas, love being in control of another person's sexual release. They love being the one to allow, or deny, the sexual release of another. And others, like Jessica, love the sexual frustration that comes with denying oneself pleasure for as long as possible.This is a form of BDSM, but on ...more

Rapt was the first book that I read by Laurel Cremant and it definitely will not be the last. Lucas was Jessica’s boss but you tell from the very beginning that they wanted each other. Jessica didn’t think Lucas knew of her interest in him and she also didn’t think he was interested in her. She was so wrong and Lucas was determined to show her how interested in her he was. I loved it from beginning to end and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of Rapt in exchange for my review.

In the year that Jessica has worked for Lucas she's played a game. While working on a case she fantasises about Lucas but doesn't satisfy herself until after she has had her meeting with him to debrief. But Lucas has cottoned on to the game that Jessica is playing, and in fact wants to play it himself, finding that he wants to push her further and further until they both break. Having reached breaking

*Reviewed for www.booklovinjunkie.blogspot.com*
Rapt is primarily a story about sexual denial leading up to a culminating explosion. Unfortunately, this short novella was more focused on the leading up to a climax that wasn't as good as I had hoped. Jessica has been in lust with her boss Lucas for a year now. Lucas stars nightly in her fantasies and she eagerly looks forward to her meetings with him. When Lucas admits that he is as into her as she seems to be into him, the pair begin a weird courtship that takes place over th

I'm not overly into novellas or shorter tales and Rapt by Laurel Cremant is a short, quick and dare I say dirty read? Well, its an adult erotica so I think I'm allowed.

I did have a few issues with this book, taking aside I don't love short stories but it was still enjoyable too. I know I'm sounding a little contradictory, so let me explain.

I didn't really like the dynamics of Jessica and Lucas relationship. Sometimes you read about 2 characters and you just 'get them'. I

Jessica has been working for Lucas for over a year now and there is heat between the two but they both have no idea that the other one feels it also. Lucas takes matters into his own hands and decides that this game between them has to finally culminate. He is in to BDSM by denied sexual gratification and he thinks Jessica is also. Time to test this theory out.

This book was quick and fun. I loved how each character was out for themselves while thinking

This book is straight forward, it captures you from the very beginning and holds you until the end. I enjoyed the back and forth between Jessica and Lucas. It was from both POVs so i also liked knowing both feelings instead of guessing. The deprivation in this book had me on edge. I almost com-busted i was so damn worked up! You will run into a few errors here and there which is why i rated it 4 stars, regardless i highly recommend this and hope you guys enjoy reading it as well! Also i would li ...more

This was a small novella and a quick one to read. The author did a good job with the anticipation of the scenes in this book. The real thing that I now think of is there is only one real scene in this whole read. The anticipation is the key and I guess that could make it 3 & 1/2 stars. She did well with the progression of the story and kept your attention through out the book. I wondered where it might lead with these two, but it was worth waiting for...I think!

Thanks to netgalley for a free read in exchange for a review, while I wholeheartedly loved the idea in this book, it ended far too soon. This was fabulous, why on earth didn't it flesh out longer. The idea was well written, and I loved the characters. Tying in the portrait wasn't an entirely new idea but it went along with everything else. The story was just getting good.....and then it ended. Overall entertainment was still four stars. I would definitely like to see this go further.

I have read this author and enjoyed her stories. This was very different to what I am used to from her. It gave me an education in another area of BDSM that I had not heard of before called "Orgasm Denial". The pain/pleasure of denying the woman her release. Jessica and Lucas deny their attractions to each other for a whole year! The story then leads to them admitting how they feel about it each. A quick easy read.

A copy was provided by the Netgalley for an honest review.

Rapt did not do it for me. I had a hard time getting into this very short book. I could not wrap my little mind around the fact that being around some guy flips a switch in someone’s head that says “I want to deny myself orgasms”. As far as erotic goes there was not much there, the drawn out story was like her delaying orgasm.

I recieved this novella from netgalley for a honest review.

I enjoyed reading this short, sweet, erotic and BW/WM romance novel. Despite a couple of errors the novel was particularly well written it jumped straight into the storyline. I liked the two main characters they were a good match. Loved the ending very sweet.

Would read more by this author.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was all foreplay! The looks, the banter, the wanting all keep the reader on the edge. We want it to happen, and we keep getting close. Then the characters finally get together and fireworks go off! Hope to read more from the author in the future!

Laurel is a romance author, who like most writers loves to read. She has no one favorite genre to read because she believes "a good story is a good story" regardless of what genre it's published under. However, her first love (pun intended) is romance. From the sappy romantic chick flick, the sappy YA romance novel to the more risque erotica novels, Laurel is a sucker for a good love story.
