    ARC courtesy of Carina Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 3 StarsI think that this story had a lot of potential but somehow, fell short Not long enough to deliver what it promises you and I can t believe I m even saying it too much sex for the story to make sense.Yes, you heard me right Too much SEX Well, let s try make, some sense Art grabs you like lust inexplicable and irresistible You could deny it, but then the unfulfilled desire just ate you up. This book ARC courtesy of Carina Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 3 StarsI think that this story had a lot of potential but somehow, fell short Not long enough to deliver what it promises you and I can t believe I m even saying it too much sex for the story to make sense.Yes, you heard me right Too much SEX Well, let s try make, some sense Art grabs you like lust inexplicable and irresistible You could deny it, but then the unfulfilled desire just ate you up. This book entices us with the liberating and soul stripping force of art The way it expresses your feelings and unveils your deepest secrets The ones that you don t know you are hiding Are you familiar with the legend of Persephone and HadesOf course you are But have you ever considered that maybe Persephone was a willing captive That in the deepest Hell, found freedom and the other half of her soulAlthea Grant is our unsuspecting Persephone.An albino and gallery owner, she the sensible daughter, the perfect girlfriend, a proper lady.What she really is chained Washed out, not because of her coloring but of the lockdown, she has on her feelings and emotions Cold That s the facade she puts on for everyone Because she is afraid of her own passionAlthea looks all fragile and ethereal, but she s like tempered metal inside Strong Flexible, too, I ll betSteel is the man that will set her freeNot every guy has a noun for a name Not unless he s bold and manly like meThis dark man, an accomplished artist, arrogant and earthy, will drag Althea in his lair and he will strip her bare, crushing her to put her back together CAN YOU SEE HOW MUCH PROMISING, THIS STORY WAS But it all happened too quickly Althea kept changing attitude and her mind in an instant and her transformation from meek to bold wasn t believable I didn t get the parents issue, both seemed really charming and this book was torn between an erotica and a really sugary romanceI feel like weeping, because I wanted to love it Well, maybe it just didn t work for me

    This book had a promising startAlthea the timid, conservative art gallery owner meets Steel, the tattooed biker artist who wants to display his art in Althea s gallery The problem is that Steel s art is blatantly sexual in content Even if it is brilliant, as Althea tells him, it simply has no place in her gallery Since that scenario doesn t work out for Steel, he decides that he needs her basement to live in and work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to be a way for these two t This book had a promising startAlthea the timid, conservative art gallery owner meets Steel, the tattooed biker artist who wants to display his art in Althea s gallery The problem is that Steel s art is blatantly sexual in content Even if it is brilliant, as Althea tells him, it simply has no place in her gallery Since that scenario doesn t work out for Steel, he decides that he needs her basement to live in and work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to be a way for these two to meet up and get it on continuously Despise the myriad things keeping them apart, that is I had quite a few problems with the story after about page twenty I think this author tried to pack way too much into a 120 page erotic novella type book Example 1 Althea has a man already After a quick intro to Steel, she takes care of the pesky boyfriend problem within about seven pages And Steel and Althea proceed to get it on for nearly the rest of the entire book Since Althea is such a goodie goodie, and Steel iswell, notI expected there to be some spice in the bedroom Errr..basement But after awhile, Althea s introduction into Steel s type of not so vanilla sex began to have an icky feel It was as if Steel becamelascivious with each sex scene I started to think of him as a dirty old guy, sneering at her each time he debased her in a new way Honestly, he wasn t that bad. It was just that every sex scene was a new instruction, a new shock, a different teaching, and this chick was down for it all Althea too readily allows Steel to tie her up I can t imagine letting a guy whom I ve known for less than a week not only move into my basement but render me completely powerless and then feel all romantic and tender toward him after he has me suck off inanimate objectsin the name of art, of course Ahem.had I not felt uncomfortable about the setting and situation, I would have also said that the sex is HOT If that s what you want, it s definitely here.The author tries again during the last twenty pages to turn this into a deep, meaningful storyintroducing her badass boyfriend to her uptight society parents and letting Steel basically change every last flaw that she perceives herself to havefrom the way she runs her gallery to the way she dresses to her interpersonal relationships with all of her loved ones.it was just way too much It didn t work at all This should have either stayed a hot, fast affair, or been turned into a fleshier novel with about two hundredpages to play with In my humble opinion, Althea did a lot of changing, a lot of crawling, a lot of new things for a man that we never really learn anything about.Though I think the author has talent she needs to put some length into a novel if she want this reader to connect with her characters Either that or just keep it all about the sex and new experiences ARC kindly provided by Carina Press via Net Galley

    Wow Hot Hot Hot If your looking for a book to put some steam under your collar, then you have found it I m surprised the book didn t spontaneously combust Althea..I love all of the tension between Steel and Althea They are so different and yet so similar She lets her guard down around him and her whole world gets flipped upside down.From demure to down and dirty.In the basement she is his love slave She has to do whatever he tells her She wants it all andBut she is stil Wow Hot Hot Hot If your looking for a book to put some steam under your collar, then you have found it I m surprised the book didn t spontaneously combust Althea..I love all of the tension between Steel and Althea They are so different and yet so similar She lets her guard down around him and her whole world gets flipped upside down.From demure to down and dirty.In the basement she is his love slave She has to do whatever he tells her She wants it all andBut she is still so sweet about it, haha Ironic right The real shock is when she invited him to her room and SHE had control Her personal little plaything Hehehe Kiss the shoe Did he have a smidge of a foot fetish I only have one negative comment about Platinum Usually I am chastising a story for being too long Platinum could have easily gone on for another 100 pages The sex scenes were deliciously long and never forced but they did consume the book The actual story felt very rushed at the end Just like that she changes out her gallery and is the most popular gallery in the area Yaddy yadda, all lived happily ever after I really felt like there could have beenthere I mean come on Her mom is happily helping her showcase his art of Althea all tied up and naked in the heat of passion There could have been some awesome drama

    3 stars ARC provided by Carina Press through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I would compare my opinion of this book to my opinion to another erotic novella that I read recently, Willing Victim This story had the trappings of a great story I really thought Steel was going to become my new book boyfriend, and he probably would have, if Kennedy had let me get to know him just a little bit better Whilst the sex scenes in this book were through the roof hot, the whole story itself came 3 stars ARC provided by Carina Press through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I would compare my opinion of this book to my opinion to another erotic novella that I read recently, Willing Victim This story had the trappings of a great story I really thought Steel was going to become my new book boyfriend, and he probably would have, if Kennedy had let me get to know him just a little bit better Whilst the sex scenes in this book were through the roof hot, the whole story itself came off as a bit cold Why Well mostly because we didn t really get to see the characters They were extremely two dimensional and this was detrimental to the story Kennedy needed to show us these two individuals, help us see what makes them tick, where their emotions are Instead we kind of got a rather generic story about some hot sex in a basement followed by Steel s confession of feelings Where the hell did that come from There was just no real explanation for their developing relationship because really the author didn t allow us to see this relationship as anythingthan some hot sex between an uptight woman with a rough budding artist Their love story could have been epic, if Kennedy had just fleshed this book out.That said the extremely hot sex scenes still meant that I wasn t really wasting time reading this book

    Disclaimer This ARC was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley.Rating 2.5 starsWhile, this book wasn t terrible, I am bored with the erotica genre at the moment.I think the worst part of this book that it was so cliched.

    2.5 StarsHere s the thing with Platinum, it s a good concept, really it is, but it s a relatively short book so the story felt rushed and not enough was explained Althea s life is a cookie cutout of what she believes is the right way to live Basically the chick is boring with zero excitement in her life that is until she meets Steel Bring on the sexy Steel is fascinated by Althea and her rules of perfection He is determined to break through all of her barriers And break through HE DOES S 2.5 StarsHere s the thing with Platinum, it s a good concept, really it is, but it s a relatively short book so the story felt rushed and not enough was explained Althea s life is a cookie cutout of what she believes is the right way to live Basically the chick is boring with zero excitement in her life that is until she meets Steel Bring on the sexy Steel is fascinated by Althea and her rules of perfection He is determined to break through all of her barriers And break through HE DOES Steel is able to awaken and release a side of Althea she didn t even know she had, and it s hot I wasn t a fan of the whole glass thing, though That just isn t my kind of thing, however, I m not judging.I liked this A lotWhat s the point of never getting skin cancer if I die an old woman who never played on the beach I wantedbackground on Steel I don t feel like we really get to know him, well, other than his kinky, demanding side There are glimpses of his sweetness but not enough if you ask me Their relationship wasn t what I was hoping for Yes, it s passionate and sensual, but I m a sucker for love I wasn t feeling the love I thought the fact that Althea is an albino was interesting I ve never read a book with an albino character before I liked how Steel helped her to realize that she is beautiful While there are secondary characters in the book, we don t get to really know any of them Althea s best friend, Abby, came around twice, I think I know nothing about her Ugh and her parents Yeah, her dad is an ass I so wanted to rip him a new one Her mom is in her own little world Again, I don t really feel like I know them, either All of the characters felt underdeveloped, which was disappointing because I really wanted to knowabout them.I liked that art was such a huge part of the book Art is capable of expressing all kinds of emotionsArt grabbed you like lust inexplicable and irresistible You could deny it, but then the unfulfilled desire just ate you up
