This actually rated 3 3/4 stars in Rabidfaery's Tales!
This is a bundle of all three of the Apprivoisé novels.
Alex Marchand doesn't know how to do things by half, even when on medication to control his impulsiveness. It's a struggle he's had since childhood. When he falls, he falls hard and he falls fast. Luckily, he found a girl as foolish as Dahlia Warwick, a woman who has codependency down to an art. Club Dishabille is a novel that gives the reader the hearts and flowers they expect and only the palest of pink bottoms. Arden explores the subject of BDSM with readers who may not quite be ready for a safeword.
Dahlia and Alex, two people with limited experience in exploring what they desire, discover a new definition of romance while finding their way together. Club Dishabille spanks the genre of romance, but delivers the happily ever after.
Club Dishabille is a love story for those who want it a little bit rougher.
Morphoses is a novel of transitions. It starts where Dishabille left off and it includes two of the more minor characters from that novel. The title itself gives the reader a hint into Miranda's kink. While a good bit of the story revolves around Miranda indulging this, there's another transformation that is taking Nicholas kicking and screaming into a normal functioning sexual relationship. By the end you will love Miranda and Nick as much as Dahlia and Alex.
Morphoses is a love story for those who are ready for a bit more than just a spanking.
Force Majeure takes us on a lustful journey of near obsession, past the normal niceties of sex and romance, and into the intricate mind of Jeff Rainier. A mind both complex and simple. He knows the rules, but doesn't always want to understand them.
Evan Monroe was looking for more in her life, but was unconvinced there was such a thing. She was bored, and unnecessarily jaded. But, she'd try anything once; twice if you begged.
Jeff Rainier turned out to be a force that was almost too hard for her to handle.
Force Majeure is a novel that tries to define love, but only confuses the matter."
All three of these books focused on a different type of sexual sub sets. I really enjoyed the way that the author focused on some aspects that aren't usually discussed in serial style Erotica.
Starting the series by introducing Dahlia was genius. Dahlia is a woman who enjoys being a submissive and now that her daughter is old enough for her to focus on her own social life again she dives right in.
Contacting the owner of the local BDSM club & meeting up with her brings the reader into the world of sexual exploration. Patrons of the club can make use of the clubs privacy rooms/ dungeons or just mingle to find others that might share what intrigues are on display.
I really enjoyed the flipping of p.o.v. in all 3 stories. It gave me a clear understanding of what each character was thinking. The trilogy touches on 3 very different sexual kinks that were written in a way I found very sexy.
Out of the three couples that were focused on in this trilogy I REALLY enjoyed Evan and Jeff. Evan with her beautiful hair and her need for a dominant that could really bring the fear to the surface. Anyone who gets aroused by this type of bed play has had that awful awkward experience ; your partner wants to please you sexually but doesn't really enjoy being a Dom. It's awful for all parties involved.
Not only was I.T. guy Jeff quiet, a little geeky, and VERY awkward in social settings. The type of things he needed to meet his sexual satisfaction would be very hard for a person like him to articulate to the woman of his long term fantasy Evan.
As mentioned earlier once you've read the first book and get to know the quirky relationship that she has with her daughters father Nick, her.. well I won't spoil it by saying how her relationship with Alex and his sister Miranda becomes;) but suffice to say that by the time you finish this trilogy you'll have some new ideas for your paramour and you'll never look a tech guys the same again.
A huge plus for this author was that although it would take a lot of really open minded people to pull off what Dahlia, Alex, Nick, Miranda, Evan , and of course my favorite Jeff endure to find their H.E.A.
Arden wrote the characters like they could be anyone you work with , live next door to, even see yourself in. The sex scenes are very graphic and this series is absolutely aimed at a mature audience .
