Sultry Steamy Reading
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Wow. I don't think I have enough words for this book. I don't mean it in a bad way. It's just that this book was erotica and sensuality through and through. There is enough character development to sustain a reader's attention but most of the book was about seeking pleasure. This book will really get you all hot and bothered. I haven't read anything from this author before, but I find that I do like this particula

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

4.5* of scorching erotica and naughtiness!

This is unashamedly hedonistic from beginning to end - and I do recommend you read it in private, probably with an ice laden drink .... hot and steamy does not just relate to the Thai weather in this gem.

There is a plot, although really it is the unabashed wantonness of Kate that makes the story worth reading! I enjoyed the journey, and the outcome. I will definitely read this a

I started this book at about eight last night and finished it around two this morning... Too captivated and entranced to put it down, though I was exhausted from the reading -and the gorgeous, vivid eroticism that drowned my senses completely.

Ms Sarai has such a beautiful way of weaving her talent, the words become pictures and form a tapestry of love, life and passion that flow with dramatic sensuality across the pages. Exotic, deliciously erotic, evocative, haunting, thoroughly mesmerizing and

what a delicious, sensuous & delightfully twisted tale featuring sex between all manner of people, exotic settings & many uses for a variety of everyday things, at least everyday in Thailand. this was a good romp & a sexy read. i highly recommend it. while it was certainly romantic, it wasn't sickly sweet romance. if it hadn't been for the romantic aspect, i would have given this book a 5; however, that's my own penchant for the dark showing. which isn't fair. the characters are comp ...more

Raw Silk is a book that will seduce you from the first chapter. I loved the lush locale, the incredibly charming yet diverse lovers, and the intelligent female protagonist who explores her desires on her terms. A great read!
Amy Miller
The story was definitely hot , but I found that it had to many players in the story for me. This was about Kate and her self discovery of who she is and wants to be but too many men made it a bit too much for me.
The TBR Pile *Book review site*
I liked the idea of the story. I gave the story only three stars because I did feel that juggling three different men is a little too much and didn't come together well.

Set in Thailand, this is a very exotic, very sensual story. I'm learning a lot about BDSM from this story - very interesting.
