I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.Twelve Doors to Ecstasy is a book about a young woman’s adventures to awaken her sexuality. Tryst grew up in a very religious household, and because of this, she is inhibited sexually. When Tryst catches her live-in boyfriend trying to move out of their apartment while she’s gone, Tryst decides to answer an ad in the newspaper. The add is from an organization looking for sexually repressed women. That’s where her adventures begin. Tryst is given the opportunity to explore her sexuality by choosing doors on different floors. What`s happening behind the doors? Tryst must participate in whatever activity she finds. However, something sinister is taking place in the organization. Anderstech is run by a millionaire named Anders. He chooses the women for his organization in the hopes that they will stay with the organization, and he wants Tryst to be his queen.

This was another wonderful book by John Tucker. It had everything, and more, that I like about erotica. The storyline was intriguing. The erotic elements were scorching hot. The suspense had me reading way past my bedtime, I had to find out how it ended. And the ending had me begging for more. I really enjoyed this book and would love to read more about these characters in the future.

This review is from: The Little Girl You Kiss Goodnight (The Steph Linder Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)

John Tucker’s organization of the story is intricate. His characters are believable and consistent, not cliché. There is enough complexity in the plot to keep us guessing and turning the pages. The climactic scene is brilliantly laid out. Throughout the book, I found it hard to put down, a near compulsion to keep reading. If that doesn’t rate 5 stars, I don’t what does.
While this is a YA book, it leans toward the older end of this market. This is a no holds barred murder mystery, with all the grown up violence to go with it. There are also frequent references to sex, so don’t get it for your middle-schooler. Late high-school, college and grownups will love it.

 

Divisive

Standard

DivisiveSynopsis:

The Connors are your All-American dysfunctional family. Carolyn, the matriarch, is a hard-drinking single mother with no desires to be a ‘sitcom mommy.” Elizabeth, her seventeen-year-old daughter, is a Goth dressing, snarky teenager who lives to protect her baby sister and to find love. Precocious Emily, twelve, is the peacemaker of the family saddled with issues of her own. Enter Dennis Rask, a charming rogue who insinuates himself into their family and brings them together as a self-appointed messiah – becoming loved by Carolyn, idolized by Emily, and accepted with reservations by a suspicious Elizabeth. Little do the Connors know, Rask has united three families before them, with every unit destroying themselves from within by his hellish machinations. Rask views the Connors as a hobby – a game – which has left no survivors in the past.

Divisive starts the reader off at the end of their story. Detective Frank Bostick attempts to unravel the reasons behind a tragic event in the Connors house, resulting in a ‘supposed’ death, a ‘questionable’ overdose, and a brutally ‘perceived’ attack of Rask by one of the members. Switching back between the past, and the present, Divisive ensnares the reader in a thriller that goes back several years in the life of Dennis Rask until ending in a grim battle for the soul of the one he has hand-picked to be his ‘Queen.”

I know this is a cliche, but I literally could not put this book down. It had me right from the very first chapter. I am a fan of psychological thrillers and suspense, and this is about the best I’ve read.

The character drawing is superb. The villain is Dennis Rask, a nasty piece of work, finely drawn and oh-so convincing as a master manipulator and psychopath. The detective, Bostick, is likewise very well fleshed out and in his case, is a wonderful, likable character. I’d love to see Bostick star in his own television series. I very much enjoyed the way that the reader is kept up with how Bostick’s mind works at all times. We follow his intuition about Rask and the initial crime scene, and then his deductive processes.
Divisive follows the machinations of the evil Rask. Carolyn Connor, the mother, has a difficult and antagonistic relationship with her daughters Elizabeth, a Goth seventeen year old, and Emily, a twelve year old. Rask worms his way into their lives and charms all three soon-to-be victims by means of his frightening skills of psychological manipulation. As Divisive unfolds, we are given insights into the mind of Rask, and find that the Connors are not his only victims: far from it. Yet Rask is not your standard serial offender; we are given profound insight into his thought processes and what drives him, even his unfolding and somewhat bizarre relationship with Elizabeth. I particularly liked the way in which we are also given insight into how Elizabeth struggles against the truth. I found this most realistic.
Divisive is a page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is far from predictable, so much so, in fact, that I had a hard job not turning to the end to see what would happen.
This is good, long book, yet not once was I bored.
