Join me, will you, in emitting a heavy sigh for yet another erotica trilogy.

Is there a law somewhere - a regulation - that all erotica must come in threes? Is it not possible for a writer to just tell a story and end it on the last page of ONE BOOK?

Apparently not.

Oh, what E. L. James hath wrought. And, no, Cecilia Tan, that is not a compliment.

So here we have the second book of the threesome. I didn't read the first one, and while having done so would have helped understand one of the major plot

I was given a copy of this book by NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review.
I am so disappointed. I really enjoyed the first book and thought Karina and James were great characters. I didn't like either one of them in this book, at all.
The elusive James is gone and Karina would do anything to find him and get him back, including turning her self over to Damon, a dom in need of an attitude adjustment. Nothing about the plot drew me in, save the appearance of James. I liked him in the fir

I'm not even rating this book. SLOW is right. The only reason I finished it is because I need to do a review. I had zero interest in the MC's kinks and foray into submissive-Ville. I wanted her to find James and by the time she did, I was thoroughly bored. James is no longer compelling to me. I'm really not reading the next book. Just tell me what happens.

This is a review of all three books, so there is info in here about the other two, if you haven't read them be careful.

As a whole work I'm very unsure how to rate these books. I feel like the first book was maybe a 3.5 star read, but it lacked an ending which certainly knocked it back a star. Then there is the fact that the first book feels like almost a completely different story than the next two, though one does not work without the other two which makes it confusing. The second two books are

This book grew on me as I read it - and I started by reading it out of order because by the time I picked it up to read (having had it on my review shelf for a couple weeks at the time, I believe), the language in the blurb description had become a little irritating. Training made me think unwilling or being treated like less than a person, for whatever reason, and that made me reluctant to read.

So I read some of the start, a chapter in the middle and then the end, and kind of read backwards - f

Good things come to those who wait! I've waited a year for this book, and now I'm eagerly awaiting the appearance of the third and final novel in six months.

At the end of Slow Surrender, James disappeared from Karina's life like Prince Charming fleeing Cinderella at midnight. Now, armed with only a job offer from theTate in London and a mysterious sculpture of a glass slipper, Karina goes in quest of her missing beloved. In London she is soon drawn into two different but slightly overlapping wor

This was a filler book for me and I hate filler books. But I did give this one a 3 star rating, 2.5 stars for the plot and 0.5 star for it being an easy read. This books starts off 2 months after "James" has just up and left Karina with no explanation. She is following leads to find him.

During this book the main thing that stuck out to me was that Karina started to question was it "James" that she missed and loved or was it the adventure she was addicted to. She put herself through a lot to figu
3.5 - 4

The first book in this series had me. I was instantly drawn in. I wanted more of James. I couldn't get enough! I couldn't wait to start this one and see where things would go.

For me this one was good but not great. It didn't pull me in the way I hoped it would. It just felt drawn out. We get to meet Damon and he was okay but he wasn't James. I wanted James! And I will say that yes she meets Damon and yes she goes with him so that he can train her to be a good submissive. He is alright I

Well well well!!! OMG!! I can see that some reviewers didn't get the whole plot and understand this one. This is a second book of the series. This first book has to be read in order to understand this one. I enjoyed this book very much! I could not put it down. I felt the nervousness of these characters down to my toes!! Damon and James and the Heroine of the story are a good match. They allow you to see certain things of each character that you would not normally see otherwise. Damon seems cock ...more

I received an ARC from Net Galley for an honest review.
I want to shout and tell everyone about this series. I have not seen great reviews for this book or this series but something about Karina and James has completely caught my attention and I want more. It is hard to talk about this book with out giving away the book itself. But one thing I want to know is...what the hell is up with James. I mean seriously. A neurotic protagonist is new for me and I am loving it. I am ready to pre order the th

**2.5 STARS ---- I read this not knowing that its the second book in a trilogy (waahhh) but it read just fine... very slow thought and I wasn't very engaged in the story... Again, this may be due to the fact that I haven't read the second but still an okay read.

I enjoyed this as well, but the level of emotional and physical manipulation without consent was a bit much for me.

Also: I abhor conflict based on miscommunication.

When I started reading this trilogy, I had to force myself to put images of Christian Grey out of my mind. There was a lot of similarities in the first book, but what I loved about the second book is that it was such a drastic turn from what I was expecting to happen next. That for me was a big win for this book. No, James isn't really a main character in the second book of this series, but he is always at the front of mind. Always. This book was the drive and passion of Karina to see out the ma ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
So we pick up the story with Karina determined to trace James, but with little to go on she's clutching at straws. The LL grapevine says he's in England ,so she jumps at the chance of a summer job in the art world in London. There she meets Damon, member of the English branch of the club in US that James took Karina to – and the one he abandoned her at. Not a happy memory for her, but she's willing to re renter that world if it he

REVIEW: If you have followed this blog for some time, you have realized by now that I am a big fan of independent, strong-minded and smart mouthy heroines. Cecilia Tan does not disappoint, she first introduced us to Karina in Slow Surrender. Now in Slow Seduction Karina has traveled to London in search of James, the man who has awaken her desire and need for submission.

I give it to Mrs. Tan, she has given us a more secure and mature Karina, one that isn’t

This installment picks up a couple of months after Slow Surrender left off with Karina moving to London not only to start a new job in a museum but also in search of James, who left her after Karina forced him to reveal his name.

This book was not what I expected at all, but still a great follow-up book nonetheless.

This story centers around Karina's journey in finding James, the man who captured her heart and encouraged her to explore her sensual side. After all the experiences she sha

Review: 3 stars
General: This book is the second in a trilogy and I did not know that. For me, this book suffered as a stand alone so I am unsure if reading the first would have fixed some of the plot issues I struggled with. However, the book was a good read overall. It was well written and despite it taking a theme that is slowly becoming over done, Karina lends something new with her rules and it helped keep it fr

I was thoroughly intrigued by this second installment of the Struck By Lightening series. Slow Seduction successfully showcases a wiser, more sympathetic Karina whose devastating heartbreak has shaped and sharpened her senses. This newly evolved Karina is a thoughtful, introspective and pragmatic heroine- focused and determined to re-connect with her elusive ex-lover James.

James- whose worth is highly debatable- is thankfully missing for most of this story. In his absence,

I was eagerly awaiting this book after reading Slow Surrender and read and finished it pretty quickly after publication. I very much enjoyed it; Karina's determination to find put herself through the "training program" as a means to locating him.

Karina's adventures at the Crimson Glove Society with Damon and Vanette and her efforts with her artist roommates, preparing for the showing were great reading for me. I really enjoyed how all the pieces came together at the end of the book

When I picked this book up from the "bargain bin" section of my local book store, I had no idea it was the sequel to a book called "Slow Surrender" and that this is part of a trilogy. The third book is "Slow Satisfaction."
It's not your typical romance book. The object of desire and affection of Karina is physically absent for the majority of the story. She is being pursued by another man, Damon George, and we read a lot about her relationship with him. Karina's thoughts and motivations, howeve

In true, honest fashion (because I know no other way lol) I rate Slow Surrender at 3.5 There were a few things missing that held me back from rating higher.

I loved book 1 and the whitty banter between the H/h sets this book apart from any normal Dominant/Sub relationship. In Slow Seduction however there was a huge lack of the whittiness that I loved in book 1. Actually there was a huge lack of James.. All the way through the book I kept asking myself "Where's James?" He finally shows up towards

I've waited months for this book and it did not disappoint!
Unable to graduate pending the fallout for finally turning in that douche professor who propositioned her in exchange for passing grades, Karina flees to the UK to work for Martindale as well and chase after James. She meets Damon, a member of The Crimson Glove Society who offers her an interview as a trainee. She accepts, seeing this as a way to find James. The Society decides to accept her after a weekend test with Damon

It was okay. I got suckered into reading it because someone said -


Okay...someone said "Hey, it's like 50 shades, but as if the main dude was David Bowie) so I thought "Hey, glam rock kicks ass, this might be pretty good!"

It really wasn't bad. Just...I dunno, it felt forced, like she was going through a check list of things she had to add to make the publisher happy. I'm not into romance really, hated 50 Shades (read it so I could figure out what everyone was so excited for), but t
