10 Nights by Michelle Hughes and Karl Jones

Synopsis: After graduation, twenty-four-year-old Leah was determined that no man would destroy her plans for the future. Or so she thought. Her best laid plans and well-ordered life were turned head over heels after her best friend, Janie, invited her to a “coming-out” party.

One look at Rhett and all previous thoughts went straight to hell. He made an unbelievable offer to her: “Give me 10 nights and I’ll show you pleasure beyond your wildest dreams.”

Was this an invitation to paradise or would his request destroy her mind, body and soul?

From virgin to courtesan in 10 nights? Was Leah even willing to consider it?

In a game of cat and mouse in which 10 nights, 10 choices and 10 fantasies could change everything, who would declare victory?
My thoughts: Well, If I ever meet these authors I would DEFINITELY say: LESS SEX AND MORE STORY! That’s the problem of this book, besides the strong language used.
                We are presented to Leah, a twenty-four-year-old woman that just graduated and wanted a “free life”. But when her friend presents her to Rhett, she is instantly drawn to him. He offers her then 10 nights to show pleasure to her. I started reading this story because of that part, which I thought that was very creative, but when I found out that he was a sadomasochist and was planning to turn her to a sex slave, I got shocked. And got more shocked when she accepts the invitation! I mean, girl, you’re supposed to have pleasure and not him.
                As usual, the two are completely blind because they fall in love, but don’t realize it until the end of it. She gets humiliated by his plans, and she KNOWS it, but she just let it go and say that it’s all right. For God’s sake, I had to look for the dictionary to know what the hell BDSM was – and when I discovered the meaning, I got really embarrassed and I really don’t know if I would be ok if someone ordered me to do it.
                The strong language in the book really ruined it, and the fact that the authors can describe perfectly sex scenes but can’t write a normal day in Leah’s life without repeat at every page that she is curious to know what Rhett will make her do. I believe that most likely girls and women are going to read this kind of romance so you need to slow down things and relax on the cursing thing. Having pleasure for 10 days isn’t only sex, I, for an instance, have pleasure when I’m in a big hot tub with bubbles, or reading a book, or watching a movie with a guy, going out for a romantic dinner and that kind of stuff. Leah becomes a courtesan – not to say worst – and she is OK WITH THAT!

                I got really uncomfortable and was a happy when it came to the end of it.
