Thank you to Lauren Blakely and her team for the advance reader copy of The Decadent Gift, the third book in The Gift series.
I am so over the moon about Lauren writing more mature romance, this one was such a steamy one. Loved it!
Check out the Goodreads synopsis below…
“A delicious new take on lessons in seduction…
The rules of the game were simple.
We play our roles. Actually, we play lots of roles.
I get the info I need for a secret work project. We go back to how we were.
That’s what I proposed to handsome, clever, commanding Jake.
That’s what he said yes to — this decadent gift of a weekend that would get me out of trouble.
But that’s not what happened when our nights together in Vegas ended . . .
Check out my more detailed thoughts…
- Characters: Kate and Jake are the main characters of this story and it was so nice to have them front and center. Having been side characters in the other stories I was so ready to be in their heads. Kate was guarded at the beginning and I loved watching her open up over the story (Jake helped quite a bit with that). Jake is such a caring, fun, adventurous guy; absolutely loved his character.
- Setting: Las Vegas is the backdrop for this sexy as sin book. It was the perfect setting as it lent itself to the club scene the characters frequented and the career Kate was in. Not enough books are set there based on like normal residents, writers tend to favour LA or NYC when they write about cities, so I loved the change of pace.
- Romance: These two lit the pages on fire. If you read the first book in this series, The Engagement Gift then you know Jake knows his way around the bedroom (hehehe). Watching Kate and Jake feel safe enough with each other to share fantasies and kinks made their relationship so rewarding.
I give The Decadent Gift four out of five stars.
