Violent Delights by Helena Maeve

Buried secrets surface when least expected.

With one parent in prison and the other cold in the ground, Laure desperately wants to blend in. She’s worked hard constructing the pretense of a well-adjusted, sophisticated Parisian woman. But hiding in plain sight is only feasible as long as her father’s victims allow it.

As the anniversary of her father’s conviction draws near, Laure finds herself in the cross hairs of one last cold case with an unlikely ally. The only man she can depend on was never meant to be more than a rebound fling, a distraction from her luckless love life. Now, his fate may well rest in Laure’s hands.

Ashley is fifteen years her senior and should know better. Yet something about his neurotic neighbor draws him in. Moth to flame, he will follow Laure to the ends of the world if he must. If not, he’ll go as far as Kansas on the trail of a killer’s last unsolved murder and help unravel a mystery steeped in bloody family history.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM, violent imagery and some anal play.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I've read a few other stories by Helena Maeve and sadly, this one wasn't my favorite. While the plotline was interesting and good, I found the story itself dithered a bit. There were points where I forgot what the story was about because there was so much going on and side stories that distracted.

I also found that Ashley wasn't as sexy as most men normally are in books with thinning hair and being described to look like a dentist. However, I LOVED his personality and the way he took control of situations and just about everything else about him.

There is a lot that goes on in the story and I felt like it could've been separated into two parts or even a novella just so we could get to know her brother and Mel better.

At the end I have to say that the writing was as good as I've come to expect from Helena Maeve and the sex scenes were just as hot, if not more so with the spin Ashley put on them.

Helena Maeve has always been globe trotter with a fondness for adventure, but only recently has she started putting to paper the many stories she's collected in her excursions. When she isn't writing erotic romance novels, she can usually be found in an airport or on a plane, furiously penning in her trusty little notebook.
