    Warning this book is tough to handle It includes graphic descriptions of rape and death But there s also redemption and love and lust and friendship and healing tooyou ll run the gamut of emotions in A THOROUGHLY MODERN M NAGE Grief The word doesn t come close to describing the excruciating horror that comes with having to bury your child Katja Varsain s heart and soul was her son Josef, and when he s killed by a reckless hit and run driver, they were both severed To add insult to inju Warning this book is tough to handle It includes graphic descriptions of rape and death But there s also redemption and love and lust and friendship and healing tooyou ll run the gamut of emotions in A THOROUGHLY MODERN M NAGE Grief The word doesn t come close to describing the excruciating horror that comes with having to bury your child Katja Varsain s heart and soul was her son Josef, and when he s killed by a reckless hit and run driver, they were both severed To add insult to injury, Josef s father wants to pick up where they left off all those years agobefore he raped her Before she got pregnant as a result Before she knew what a truly frightening person he was Kate enlists the help of attorney Louis Rozen to take out a restraining order, but she doesn t expect to find PEACE in his arms Louis knows immediately that she s the woman he s meant to spend his life withthough she might not appreciate the fact that he already has a man he d like to spend his life with as well Louis and Adrian Lancaster have been fuck buddies for longer than either of them have held down a normal relationship, but once Louis announces that he s fallen for Kate and can no longer sleep with Ade, shit gets real Ade wonders if they might both be able to love Kate, if she might someday be able to be with them both A THOROUGHLY MODERN M NAGE is the second offering in the La Belle sans la B te M nages Series and can be read independently So yea, as a mom, this book had me balling my eyes out at Kate s tragic loss This encouragement from her friend Devvy stood out to me for many reasons This is what you have to remember Not that bloody awful eulogy Or that dour faced priest This, Kate Life Vibrancy Color This fits your little boy Ugh, rip my heart out, Ms Akeroyd But then, the horror gradually started letting some passion squeak by, letting some peace seep in I m not sure I ve ever read a book that totally gutted me and then SEAMLESSLY, realistically turned it into an entirely different kind of book It could ve turned out so much differently, and that Ms Akeroyd was able to go from one extreme to the other was truly bewitching My heart broke for Kate, but also for Louis and Adrian, as the pair of them certainly weren t slackers in the loss department either The three of them found common ground in their grief and sorrow, the men showing her how to pick the pieces of her life up and cope with the hand she s been dealt And while it may seem grossly inappropriate to include graphic sex scenes in with a storyline like this, I have to say that they were totally tasteful and well written Don t get me wrong, they were hot as hell, but they were written in such a way that felt natural to the characters development I don t want to give anything away at the twists and turns life takes for Kate, Louis and Ade because this ride is worth the journey for anyone who dares to take it Bottom Line Though this is a stand alone, pick up the first book in this series too and enjoy the brilliance that is Serena Akeroyd Kudos to you for this excellent yet heartbreaking and gutwrenching story Seeat Seeat

    I thought the first story in Akeroyd s La Belle sans la B te series was brilliant This, the second one in the series has all of the makings a grieving mother whose young son s recently died, an injured soldier who s witnessthan his share of war and death and a lawyer who s got his own family history of a sibling s suicide for romantic tragedy I wasn t as impressed as I was in the first go around I thought there was too much here, it felt like a game of one upmanship, almost like the I thought the first story in Akeroyd s La Belle sans la B te series was brilliant This, the second one in the series has all of the makings a grieving mother whose young son s recently died, an injured soldier who s witnessthan his share of war and death and a lawyer who s got his own family history of a sibling s suicide for romantic tragedy I wasn t as impressed as I was in the first go around I thought there was too much here, it felt like a game of one upmanship, almost like they had their own who had it worse club.Katja Kate Varsain has just lost her young son in a tragic accident What s even worse about the tragedy is that she and her son, Josef, were walking along the sidewalk when a car hit him killing him No parent should bury their child and this is what gets repeated and reemphasized She s desolate and grieving without any real purpose other than getting out of bed, barely One of her boss s lover, Devina Devvy Jacques, comes to her rescue showing her what can happen when you have a friend who s willing to fight your battles for you until you can fight them yourself Their relationship grew significantly since book 1 and that really worked Adrian Ade Lancaster is a former soldier Between his physical injuries that are described as being pretty disabling and his PTSD, he s a little jacked up Suffering from his diagnoses and the loss of brother after brother Ade is making his yearly trek to France to visit his dead sister s grave It s while he s visiting the cemetery that he first notices Katja and strikes up a conversation It turns out that his reason for chatting her up had nothing to do with offering her comfort while she s visiting her son s grave and everything to do with something selfish.If you remember the first story, you might remember the name Louis Rozen as Sebastien Jacques s attorney who s coordinating the financial aspects of the sale of his company Louis has had a thing for Katja since being introduced to her when Alexei Alex Ivanov moved in with Sebastien and Devvy The thing is Louis has his own history that drives him, when he was younger his older brother committed suicide because he was gay As an adult, Louis made the decision that he s going to live the way he wants and by no one else s standard and sleeps with both men and women The thing is, Louis is a really nice guy and to my lack of understanding his reasons he wants what his boss has a m nage style relationship It turns out that Ade is also Louis Rozen s lover.I enjoyed the front half of this story muchthan I did the back half I didn t like Katja s character theshe came out of her grief That s not to say she was better as a grief stricken mother but I thought her personality was muchamiable and likable Her coming out of shell seemedof a change than growth I never felt her immediate attraction to Louis They d barely spoken before having their initial sexual encounter and that felt like it was just way too quick I was never satisfied with their getting to know each other because I didn t see it.Her feelings for Ade were a bitunderstandable They spent much of their time together so there was a lot of getting to know each other but he had issues and no willingness to fix them He kept saying he would and never did I didn t feel the same, even even close, chemistry between these three as I did in the first in the first book and that was a shame because I really liked the first book The sex didn t even seem heart felt, just 3 people having sex and compared to the first story, that s a real shame Happy Reading Folks Rating C Also posted at www.redhotbooks.com
