The Principles of Lust
Inspiration comes from unusual places, so
when Teal Jamison first saw the erotic photo, she knew exactly
what she wanted to do. Starting her own erotic art gallery
from the ground up is a daunting prospect, especially for
someone without an art background. Still, Teal has always
known what she wants and pursues it with a single-minded
determination that more often than not gets her exactly that.
Now, she wants finish carpenter Zach Dillon.
Although sexually attracted to Teal, Zach
isn’t sure she’s the right woman for him. He likes his women
a bit more submissive and willing to give up some control.
Yet, when Teal begins her pursuit, he can no longer deny the
feelings he has for her. Will he be able to show her that
sometimes giving up control is exactly what they both need?
When they meet, Mia and Dominick Jamison
are both at crossroads in their lives concerning their
careers. Their meeting, a collision in the park, is as
unexpected and explosive as Mia’s personality. The attraction
is immediate, and when they see each other again later that
night, neither wants to deny it. They agree to a sex-only
relationship but soon it becomes much more.
Mia and Dominick must decide on the paths
for both their careers and their relationship. Although Mia
was the one who initially wanted a sex-only relationship, she
pushes Dominick to reveal and follow his dreams. Did she push
too hard or will it bring them closer? Dominick cares for Mia
and wants to help her be successful as well. Will asking his
sister, Teal, to look at Mia’s jewelry be something that
pushes her away?
Caitlyn Ellis never expected to meet the
perfect man for her while acting as a model for her best
friend Mia’s handmade jewelry. As soon as she sees
photographer Jack Lowell, she knows he’s the one. Even with
his muddied aura, she instinctively knows it and knows she was
meant to help heal him. Now, if she can only convince this
closed-off, obviously hurting man that she’s perfect for him…
Jack takes what Caitlyn so generously
offers after the photo shoot and enjoys it immensely. He
can’t get her out of his mind but knows nothing can come of
it. His past has colored his view of life and now he’s just
living day by day, trying to forget. So why does he open
himself to this strange, yet sexual woman? Will he allow her
in or push her away?
Sasha White’s Lush is
filled with fantastic characters and their stories of love and
lust. Connected through the erotic art gallery, these couples
are all different and face different challenges. What I
really enjoyed was that each story within Lush
is compelling and sensual, and the fact that each couple is
searching for something. I enjoyed Teal and Zach’s search for
control in love and dominance, Mia and Dominick’s quest to
discover just what they need in their careers and partners,
and Caitlyn and Jack’s search for belief in good in the world
and each other. And of course intertwined in all that
searching is some sizzling hot sexual encounters that will
keep you coming back for more from Ms. White.
