Holy hell that was one hot read! I love sexy books and novellas. I can’t get enough of them. It’s so hard for me to rate them 5 stars, no matter how hot, because of lack of story. Thats the main thing I loved about this novella. It was insanely hot, but there was actually a story in there. A story I really liked and am looking

I had seen all the great reviews and was a little worried that I would not feel the same as everyone else. It has happened to me before. I am happy to say I am in agreement with all the RAVE reviews!! I have found another book boyfriend who is worth the SWOON!!

The first in a series of serials, 'The Waltz' pulled me in and left me craving more. At less than 100 pages, this serial can be easily read in one sitting. The story was engaging and entertaining from start to finish.

Violet, aka "Vi", is stuck in a loveless marriage. Her husband, Alex, doesn't even try to hide his indiscretions at this point, talking loudly on the phone with his mistresses while Vi is in earshot, etc. Alex clearly has no regard for Vi or her feelings.

"That's what we women crave, to be worshiped and showered with gifts and adored while getting our brains fucked out."

You know what they say… One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

After sacrificing years of my life on a cheating husband, I'd had enough. I set out to quench a thirst I had ignored for years. I gave myself one year to explore my sexuality—to delve into my deepest, darkest desires. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I would have my sexual revolution.

I am going to begin with a little back story. I signed up to read this book because I love serials and I love sexy reads. What I didn’t expect, was to be completely blown away with a real story with so much heart.

Violet has been married to Alex for three years. In those three years she has tried to be the perfect wife. Throughout the years Alex began to pull away from her. She has tried engaging him mentally and physically, going as far as to buy lingerie in an attempt

Violet is 32 years old. She has been married for three years. She knows for sure her husband is a cheating asshole, having not only one, but two women. She is tired to try to do something for her marriage. She tried anything, even buying sexy lingerie especially to seduce her husband. Nothing worked. She decides to wait until after holidays to file for divorce. She’s still a young woman and she has needs. She is tired to live without sex or passion. She craves a man’s touch, someone who knows ho

My first thoughts when reading this were, “This is fucking hot!!!! Why in the world did I wait so long to start this series???" Rhys Volz someone I should have met a while ago!! lol!! And, Violet Harvell is no slouch either. She is one sassy and smart woman!

The series opens with Violet (Vi) reaching her limit with her cheating husband and seeks her own sexual awakening. In doing so, she meets Rhys who is one devastatingly handsome and commanding man.

** 2,5 ** stars

I guess I'm in the minority amongst my friends, but this book just didn't work for me. While the story had potential, I wasn't happy with its delivery. I didn't feel the connection between main charachters and found their "relationship" a bit too business like. They met, they started having sex and that's all. When the sex scenes are supposed to be hot, they were just awkward for me. I also think heroine was a bit too quick and dissolute when rediscovering her long gone sex li

A sexilicious start!

The Waltz is the first volume in a four part erotic novella series with lashings of romance and sex!

It’s the story of Violet and Rhys, told from their dual perspective which always works magically for me. I love hearing the thoughts of both the heroine AND the hero.

The story begins with Violet facing the disintegration of her marriage to her once upon a time bestclass="gr-hostedUserImg">

Vi, 32 years old, married to a cheating husband is fed up with her failed marriage and her bored sex life or lack thereof. She carves not only sex but kinky sex and since she has nothing to lose she is willing to get kinky sex somewhere else.

She stumbles upon The Rabbit Hole. A sex club where she meets the owner Rhys. And Rhys is willing to show her kinky sex.

I was a bit leery going into this book...I think writing erotica has to be tough...especially good erotica.

That being said, I start with saying this is "Filthy Erotica" and get this, it has a story!

YES! A real actual little tale that sucks you in and makes you go hmmmmm. No asshat kinda man with "issues" so far. No bossy millionaire lifestyles. Just a story of discovery done HOT and STEAMY!

I'm a sucker when it comes to short, HOT as hell novellas. that's what i got from The Waltz. and what really got my attention is that it really had a solid story in there..

And that cliffy actually got me really blustery. Can't wait to see what gonna happen.

This was an amazing discovery.
I am usually not a big fan of novellas and quick reads, because I always find them lacking.
This one was different.
Hot, great characters, good writing and it left me wanting more.
Be aware that this one ends with cliffy.

And let's just say I've always loved Mexican food but after the scene in this novella, I have a new appreciation for the cuisine!!

The Waltz certainly is no fairytale.

Well it was HOT


I didn't expect the story to turn out the way it is but I liked it.

Violet is a wife but she got nothing from her husband. It's been years he haven't touched her, he doesn't even get home and now Violet wants it to stop! She wants a divorce and she wants a sexual life.

Not quite sure, what she is looking for, she knows she wants to experiment sex like in the books she read. She starts lit.

Violet knows her marriage is not going anywhere but downhill. After discovering that her husband was having an affair with different woman, she wants out.

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Violet knows she was deprived of some pent-up sexual desire that she craved for. Some mind blowing orgasm that she only read on erotica books. Enough is enough, Violet want's some action. Searching online for a possible hook-up with someone led her to a bar named The Rabbit Hole.

Violet is coming to terms with the failure of her marriage. While her husband has slipped further away, lost in his own sexual affairs, Violet is wanting to explore her own sexuality.

She doesn’t quite know what she wants, but she knows she wants to try it all. When she discovers an online ad, it brings her to the Rabbit Hole, and to Rhys. A man that offers to give her everything she wants as long as she’s willing to adhere to the rules. His rules.

I knew it. I knew I couldn't hate every single Erotica/BDSM book I read lately.
I knew that one day I'd randomly find a book that belonged to that genre and like it. That day came.

Before you ask: yes, he suffers from the devastatingly annoying phd condition all the guys in Erotica books seem to have in common. For those who still don't know it, it's "pretty huge dick". His dick is pretty big and he says it himself. Only once,

3 ★★★

Violet is so much like any other woman wanting to know and explore her sexuality. Yes, and when a woman is not appreciated, she wants her freedom so much.

Rhys. He's mysterious. I didn't quite get the feel of him yet.

So, this is a page turner for me. But I'm not quite into that part where I'm feeling giddy and excited. I haven't get myself immersed yet into the story, although with Violet, I totally get her. And I feel her.

My favorite lines in the story.
