Lustful Literature

This is my first time reading a book from this author, and I am glad that I got the opportunity to do so with Fearless. Fearless is a quick read, but it is packed with drama, passion and mind games. This story is written beautifully and flows and blends perfectly. Luke and Delilah are characters that are developed well and as a reader I connected with them and were intrigued with them. The story is told in dual POV’s which I really love because not only do we get to hear from b

My Thoughts: Fearless was an interesting story about a woman who just wants to feel again, and the man who helps her.

The Story: We follow Dalilah Gallagher, a former child art prodigy who was put down by an art critic and who now desperately wants to find her place and purpose, and find a way to see the passion in the world again. Struggling to find her muse again, or even to feel something, she spends her days modeling fo
World Building: This novel takes place in and around New York. Some of the story line is set in rich surroundings while the rest of the book is in regular joe-shmoe places. I liked that the heroine preferred the regular places instead of the places that boasted opulence.
Characters: There were three main characters in this story. First was the ultimate villain, Mr. Nottingham. Second was the heroine, Dalilah. And third was the hero, Luke. Mr. Nottingham was enigmatic. He was an aloof billionaire
This is a story about two struggling artists who struggle for two very different reasons and a man who set his sights on a girl who is underage but 10 years later, he tries to get what he wants.

20 year old Dalihia comes from billionaire parents but won't take any hand outs and has been living on her own for the last few years. She makes her money by posing nude for art classes. She is basically a drunk at night to help her drown out her feelings. She received a spiteful art review at age 10 and

I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted to like this book. The plot is nothing new, though. There's always a love triangle. The heroine fall for a man who feels he is not good enough for her because, of course, she is this amazing perfect girl which everybody but herself can see. Then, there' sa brooding rich man who wants her, but he's dark and difficult to trust.

Honestly, this book was okay overall. I just couldn't fall in love with the

What a hideous book. The characters are completely one dimensional, not to mention grossly annoying. Dalilah feels she has to constantly remind the reader of how smart she is, by chucking in long words occasionally, but other than that, doesn't really prove her smarts. I think the author knew that her characters are one dimensional, as the character of Luke is suddenly good at basketball, then suddenly good at ice skating, both of which don't really seem to have a baring on anything other than a ...more

Dalilah is a child prodigy who was pretty much washed out by the age of 11. Hurt by some hateful words blocked Dalilah's talent and shes been trying to get in touch with her old talent at the age of 20. Growing up she manage to get herself a couple of stalkers who admire her beauty and talent now and then. Now shes a nude model for other painters and managed to be hired to pose for a portrait painted by Luke for himself with the whole starving artist thing. Now she must paint Dalilah for a Blake ...more

OMG what a story, from the beginning you get suck into the story and there’s no a way to stop reading.

This story is about the daughter of Ryan and Iris in the Illusions Series, so I recommend if you want to read Fearless read the parents series first you want be disappointed.

What happens if at the age of 11 the young extremely talented heiress Dalilah receives a bad review from a critic? She loses her passion in painting and now 8 years later everything she does is getting drunk and works as a n

This is my first time reading anything by this author, I hadn't heard of her before this but I am glad that I was given the opportunity to read this book. The author has done a great job with the writing and this is a pretty quick and effortless read. It's quick flowing and pulls you along with the drama that surrounds the characters. The romance that builds between Dahlia and Luke has the perfect amount of chemistry and passion mixed in with a healthy dose of sweetness. The

This isn't the usual type of book I like to read, but I decided to give it a try, solely based on the pretty cover--terrible, I know! I'm glad I tried it though because I did really like it.

The romance was very sweet and touching. I think it helped a lot that we were allowed into Luke's head as a POV. In many books, we only get to hear the female's POV, so the male always seems a bit distant and unreal. This was a nice change. Luke is a very likeable character too.

I'd say Dalilah's character is

OMG and then some. This is my first encounter with Ms. Scooby and a shocking one at least I will certainly be adding her to my favorite authors list. I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop the whole time the love story was building behind this villain's back. It wasn't quite as predictable as I originally thought but I was totally certain that the love affair would soon become public knowledge and the manipulation would finally be to Dahlia's detriment.

I love that we are seeing this series. I love Ryan & Iris' story and to see their daughter come out was amazing. You don't have to read the Illusions Series before this one but I would recommend it. Dalilah is from a very wealthy family. She is struggling in life even though she is extremely talented, she's lost her light since she had a horrible review from a critic. She models nude, and does some side jobs. She ends up landing a gig for Blake Nottingham, who seems strangely obsessed with h ...more

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

I couldn't get into this book. It seemed like the same old song and dance to me. Daughter of rich parents wants to make it on her own. She is barely making ends meet when she falls for another barely making it artist. Along comes a billionaire that is in love with her and can give her the high life she used to know. But she wants to use that relationship to further the career

Initially I found this book difficult to read, I can't put my finger on the reason exactly because I loved the characters, however it did improve significantly after the half way point. This book has a quite unique storyline, with a hint of mystery and suspense running alongside the romance. Luke and Dalilah make a wonderful cute couple, they just work. Despite their differing backgrounds they have masses in common. But there is the dark and sinister Blake Nottingham,how will he spoil the party. ...more

Great read. I really liked Dehilah when she was a little kid in the other series. I still really like her now too. She's just a little lost. But she starts to get her voice back with the help of Luke. She wants to help him, without him knowing of course, so that he will finally realize that he is good enough for her. This does end in a cliffhanger and I really can't wait to start on the next book to see what is going to happen. I want to slap her for what she says at the end of the book though.

Fearless by Annie Jocoby was the first time read for me. Fearless was kinda hard to get into in the beginning but after reading more of it the book got better. I liked the writing and the characters were likable. I didn't care to much for the heroine she was annoying and immature. But overall I liked the love triangle between the characters. If you like books in series than you should give Fearless book 1 in the Fearless series a try.

It was an okay read for me. I liked it enough but didn't love it. I love Delhila and lukes story and that she's supper rich and down to earth. Wasn't the worst I've read and not the best. Major cliff hanger which is alright. Definitely leaves you wanting to read more. I did receive this book from good reads for free which I always appreciate. ;) I think I need to do some back reading then I may fall completely in love with this series.

Oh my god. I loved this book so much. But I am really a fan of this authors writing. So creative and not traditional mommy porn. The characters are flawed and it makes it so much more interesting. You fall in love with some character while loathing others. I can't wait for he next book in this series. Wish I could find me a Luke. I thought Nick was going to be ,h forever book boyfriend but nope, Luke is in my heart forever. Can't wait.

Very well done. Hot and compelling.

This was such a good read. In the beginning the lead female character is a mess...definitely depressed. She falls for one man as another falls for her...oops. Now she has to figure her way out of this dilemma.

I was warned it had a major cliffhanger yet I tried this book and really liked it. I may have to get the next one.
