Rules of Seduction by Joya Ryan Blog Tour

He'll be the dream and the dirty fantasy...

Through with both her controlling ex and relationships, Ava Webber is determined to explore the spicy and sometimes forbidden appetites of the exclusive BDSM nightclub, Serve. Here, she'll get exactly what she long as it's from a man she doesn't know.

Nolan Hart ensures that Serve's clients get what they want, how they want it. But with one look at the curvy brunette, Nolan knows he’s the man to fulfill her desires. As the anonymous lover, he's Ava’s dirtiest fantasy. Outside of Serve, he's her charming, smartass friend.

But Nolan wants more. More than Ava is willing to give. And as long as the blindfold stays on, she'll never discover that the two men she's falling for are one and the same...

“I want to be consumed. In any way he wants to take me. Because the minute I step out of the scene, it’s over and back to the real world.”

It suddenly hurt to breathe. That sounded right up his alley. She wanted to get lost, taken over, but not in the real world. There wasn’t a man alive besides himself he’d trust not to abuse that privilege.

Then an idea struck him:

Why not me?

She wanted what he’d happily give her. In this short time, he’d already gotten a good sense for her. He could read her body, expressions, and cues.

He could take things in whatever direction the moment led. It was a dangerous notion, but he didn’t trust anyone else to have her. He’d make sure she got what she wanted without someone going too far or hurting her.

And she was offering everything. With the only catch of not seeing the man she was with. That was her one hard limit, and he could give that to her. Because if there was one thing he understood, it was hard limits.

He’d spent years wrapped up in women, moving from each one to the next in a quest to feel…anything. And every time, he found the threat of the future—unpredictable, unknowable—too powerful to ignore. How could he protect anyone longer than one scene at a time?

So he’d resigned himself to doing just that. No relationships. No chance for love. But at least he could guarantee each woman’s safety by assuring she was paired with the perfect partner.

But to have someone put themselves in his hands—literally. To trust their fate to him for more than a single scene. It sounded better than good and was the one thing he’d yearned for but seen no way to experience. Anyone who wanted him for more than one scene wanted him for a relationship, and he couldn’t have that.

He hadn’t found “the one,” and he never would. His friends were being taken down one by one with emotional monogamy, but it wasn’t in the cards for him.

This woman, though? There was a tiny gleam of something broken behind her eyes. Something she was outrunning. He could relate. She called to him in a way he couldn’t ignore. She wanted a tightly controlled scene, and because the fantasy would never escape into the real world, he could fulfill her desires and know that as long as she was with him, he would keep her safe.

“You’d let him have you. However he wanted. So long as his identity remained secret?” He had to clarify this just one more time to be sure she knew what she was asking for. Because he couldn’t turn her away, but he couldn’t turn her over to another, either.

“Yes,” she said. “I’ll leave it to him, and to you, to read me.” Her green eyes met his. “I trust you to pair me with the man I need.”

He nodded. Ava Webber had just sealed her own fate, and maybe even his own.

“Tomorrow night,” he said. “You’ll have the man you want.”

4.5 Stars
I expected more intense BDSM than the very light stuff we got in this book, but that's cause it was based in a BDSM club and since I haven't read any of the other books in this series, it may just be how they all are.

I really enjoyed the lighthearted banter between the characters for the most part. At times it felt like we were missing some emotion or feelings or a real connection to the reader, but for the most part I enjoyed the story and how the characters grew to have what they did.

I look forward to reading more from Ms. Ryan and this series as this was VERY hot and sexy while being well written... my favorite kind of book.

Rules of Seduction is the 7th book in the Serve series. I had not read the prior 6 but felt Rules was able to stand on its own without having read the previous installments. I found the book sweet and romantic, light on the BDSM and heavy on the feelings, but not in a bad way. Left me feeling good, happy & content.

Ava didn't trust easily and Nolan was the protective Dom. Ava came to Serve to live in the fantasy, wanting no emotional attachment. Nolan was tired of sex without strings. But when Ava walked in with no hard limits and wanting anonymity Nolan had to keep her safe! He'd failed keeping someone safe before but wouldn't let it happen again, not with untrusting Ava. Enjoyed the read thoroughly and will go back to read the prior installments for sure!

Welcome to Serve, a sex club that caters to whatever fantasy you desire!
Ava Webber has decided to take control back of her life. Newly divorced and looking for some no-strings-attached excitement, Serve is the answer to her prayers.
Her escort, appropriately named Myth – as she doesn't want to know who he is or what he looks like, provides everything she is looking for and then some!

The question is: Can reality ever be as good as a fantasy?
Better yet, can a fantasy really compete with reality?!?
This was a fast paced, sweet, and sexy story.

I read this story as a standalone, but plan on reading the first 6 stories!!

Holy cow, this book was hot. I loved the chemistry with the blindfold and without. Ava had her reasons for wanting no strings attached, I get that but I am not sure I could have done what she did. Nolan was smoking hot from the get go and I couldn’t wait to see the fireworks. I loved how they had a relationship with and without the blindfold and Ava didn’t know it. Of course she wasn’t thrilled about it, but I liked the premise. This was a one sitting read for me and it made me feel good all over.

Characters: Well written and easy to relate to
Sex: Oh yeah!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: BDSM/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is my first read from this author. I was unaware that this is book #7 in the series. I read Rules of Seduction as a standalone with no issues even with mention to previous characters.

Serve – A BDSM club where all you fantasies can be fulfilled.

"Everyone wants to live in their own personal fantasy."

Ava's past has damaged her. She knows she needs to move on and becoming a member of Serve is taking the first steps in owning her future. She's up for anything. She has rules, structure and organization in her "real" life but she needs to just feel in her "fantasy" life. Her only expectation is that it has to be anonymous. She can't know who is bringing her the pleasure she requires.

Can the fantasy live up to the reality? Can she deal with knowing the truth?

Rules of Seduction is a quick hot read. I enjoyed the characters. The push and pull and the chemistry between them was hot. I can't wait to add the previous six books to my TBR!

This is one of a series, but can be read as a standalone (as I did, but will be going back and reading the rest soon!).

I really, really enjoyed this story – it is always fun when there is a bit of a twist, when both leads learn something very important about themselves and others. It is short, but ramps up the heat very effectively and sets up the plot very neatly, so that it works. Did I wish it were longer? Sure, I could read that kind of hotness all evening, but it was a fun read, with a good outcome.

I am a mother and a wife. I love to read, write, bake, cook, barbecue, baste, flambe'...basically anything regarding food you can assume my involvement. I also have terrible dance moves and unleash them upon the general public often.
