Penny and Maddox.
A very quick read made quicker because it is unfortunately mostly sex. I say unfortunately, because I really liked the MCs (there are no side characters) and their chemistry was hot. The sex was hot too. Did not expect this to be a BDSM book after the previous book I read by this author, Love Through a Lens, which was sweetly vanilla romantic. Normally I avoid BDSM books... not my kink and usually they aren't very romantic. But I have to say it was done well here and quite 'inve

A short from Lucy.

Being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong BF is not what Penny would have wished for. With her promising Law career nearly over before it began - it takes her fathers connections to help her out of a bad situation.

But helping in a Soup kitchen isn't what she was expecting either and neither was the guy in charge, Maddox.

A rather revealing chat over a cuppa after their work was done takes Penny off to Maddox's house and she discovers a side of her that she rather

Unconventional is a novella that originally appeared in the Totally Bound Anthology, His Domain. (Which was a GREAT book by the way!) The title has a few meanings in this story from the couple itself, to the relationship, and some other tidbits.

Penny Anderson finds herself doing community service, and she does it at a soup kitchen. Once there, she meets chef Maddox Black. He’s tall, skinny, tatted up and has wild black hair, and not Penny’s usual sort.

The two of them end up chatting over tea and

This is a very short story. It takes part over a day and just gives us a glimpse of two people acting on their chemistry. I am not sure that we get a good picture of the two protagonists, but for a coffee time read it has some interesting ideas to consider.

Unconventional by Lucy Felthouse
3 stars
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Hmmm... Normally, I love Felthouse books, but this one just didn't work for me.

Penny is either incredibly naive and innocent or kind of a slut. I can't really tell. She is performing her community service because she was naive enough to let her ex-boyfriend get her in trouble. But what does she really know about Maddox?

Maddox is a strange character - he's hard to get a read on. But, when h

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

This book was not an easy read for me. I normally enjoy BDSM books, but this one didn't flow very well for me. It was stilted and disjointed.

Both characters are hard to follow and to get a good read on.

Unconventional by Lucy Felthouse
Lucy is such an amazing writer. She always draws me in no matter what genre she writes about. In this story, we learn not to judge others by their appearances (among other things). Maddox is not all he seems to appear. The skinny man with all the tattoos has secrets and if Penny is brave enough she will find out what those secrets are. You see Penny ran into some trouble and now she has to suffer the consequences. Little does she know this could forever change her
