Lured In was given to me for an honest review by V. R. Avent

Abi has a lot of baggage with her traumatic past and a family that has done nothing but let her down and think that she is the world’s biggest liar. Her heart is protected by Fort Knox or at least it was until she met Zach.

Zach has slept with anything that has crossed his path and when Abi comes into his life, he wants to be the man she need him to be but his past has created its own hurtles for the couple to deal with.

Lured In had a great beginning in the dress shop and when Mr. Sexy walked up you could get a sense of Abi’s insecurity, especially when it appears clear he wants to talk with her.

It is a pity that Matt and Carmen weren’t really Abi’s brother and sister, they clearly would have been better relatives than her own parents prove to be. Her parent proves the point that some parents should be screened and licensed to become parents.

There were some really great funny parts that had me laughing my back side off while other moments were so intense, I was gripping my nook so hard I thought it would break. The bedroom scenes were well written and very steamy. And some really cheesy parts that had me shaking my head like these quotes:

“I want your sweet delight in my mouth and your hard dick deep inside of my tight…wet…pussy.”—Abi

“Me likey”—Zach
I can’t picture a grown man actually saying that but it adds to the uniqueness of this book.

This one is my favorite as it is my stock answer when asked how I am 🙂

The characters were pretty well written and it was easy to connect with them and almost feel their pain especially Abi’s since the story is told from her perspective. This brings me to where I want to say, KUDOS for writing the great scene where Abi is telling Zach about her past. She did a great job, it was gut wrenching and I was so near tears hearing Abi’s story that I had to stop reading for a bit because it was so intense and to close to home in some ways. There are so many children who tell and the people, who are supposed to protect them, don’t do their job and V. R. did a great job of expressing this horrible truth.

I am only giving Lured In four stars because I really think that there needs to be some more editing because some of the sentences seemed incomplete. Other than that this is a great story and well worth the read.

Book’s Cover Rating
I love this cover’s uniqueness

Book’s Blurb Rating
I think blurb is right on the money without giving to much away

Book’s Blurb
Abigail’s dark and complex past brings to the surface a lot of mental and emotional barriers. This discourages her from trusting men and enjoying life, which includes going out with friends, meeting new people, and dating and she hasn’t had sex in more than three years. That is until she meets Zach, an affluent businessman, who gives Abi a real taste of the darkness. Abi finds herself in a dark paradise with Zach, lusting and devouring every erotic moment, with some bumps and bruises along the way.
