What Does A Man Say to the Woman He Betrayed But Never Stopped Loving?
Three years ago, Zachary Steele refused to entertain thoughts of permanency with any woman.

By the time he realized how much Madigan meant to him, he’d driven her away. Then, one night, after being clean for a number of years, Zach briefly falls off the bandwagon. He believes his lovemaking to Madi is a drug-induced hallucination. The resulting consequences tell another story.

Wicked Allure by Leslie C. Ferdinand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit that I was a little cynical when I first accepted this book to review because erotic romance is not a genre that I usually read (Fifty Shades was a BIG exception). I decided to give it a go though as I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and I have to say that I actually quite enjoyed this book.
The main characters, Zach and Madi, are easy to like and although some of the banter between them seemed a little immature to me at times, I found their relationship convincing and enjoyed seeing them develop together as a couple throughout the story.
The fact that the majority of the characters in the story were very realistic was a big positive to me. It made me enjoy the story a lot more as I felt I could actually picture the characters and what they were going through. The only character I was still a little sceptical about at the end was Madi's mother because she was a little overdevloped to me but as she didn't really play a huge part in the book it didn't really worry me.
Being an erotic romance it does contain some very descriptive sex scenes but it's more your run-of-the-mill sex scenes rather than anything kinky which was a relief.
Overall I would recommend this book to anyone into erotic romance stories, especially those that actually contain a decent plot and not just in a mundane, page filling kind of way in between the sex scenes. It's not a book to read if you're after anything full-on deep and nmeaningful, but it's certainly a good page turner and one that kept me interested until the very end.
