Serafina Luca, straitlaced Manhattan professor of erotic literature, isn't one to blush at a few raunchy words, but her experience in the bedroom is hardly bestseller material. She's not sure the passion in the books she teaches is possible in real life, let alone for her. But then she meets Nick Stellato.
The construction foreman may look like a guy's guy, but he knows how to treat a woman. One look at Serafina's luscious figure, and he wants to prove it to her. One dinner date and their sizzling chemistry is undeniable. Soon, it's the professor getting a lesson or two...and Nick is a willing teacher. What surprises him is how much he enjoys the time he spends with Serafina outside the bedroom--and how easily he can imagine a future together.
Before long, Serafina is falling hard for Nick, too. But how can a timid academic with virtually no past fulfill his dreams of an adventurous future?
Upon starting this one, it had a good feel to it. I liked how Serafina and Nick met and how their relationship first developed. As the story progressed though, I wasn't that impressed.
Serafina and Nick's romance was sort of the typical one you find in this genre. They had their moments where I liked them, where it was interesting to see the way they interacted with each other. Then there were moments where I just wanted to roll my eyes. There was a side story that, well, kind of annoyed me. When it was getting close to the end, I could see where it was leading to and I didn't like it. Not that it was bad, just dramatic and I knew exactly what would happen.
Although it wasn't exactly as amazing as expected, Words Of Lust was still pretty good. The way Lise Horton wrote the romance was nice, and I liked the progression of Serafina and Nick's relationship for the most part. It was worth the read, and it might be for you too.
