Platinum by Jeffe Kennedy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Althea owns and operates an art gallery that is in a financial bind. After an offer from Steel, a sculpter, to rent a space in the gallery to work, Althea thinks things might be turning around for the better…until he makes her another offer she cannot refuse.
Of the three Facets of Passions books this was my least favorite. That's not to say I did not enjoy it, but I felt it lacked something that both of the other books had. For one, I felt the characters a bit lacking. They were hard to connect to, and I found myself just feeling lukewarm about them. Second, the sex scenes, while incredibly hot, did not really seem to fit well into the story. Again, not bad, but not as good as the other two books in the series.
That being said, there were definitely things I liked about this story. Althea's character underwent some major changes in the short time span the story covered, and it was interesting to watch her go through those. In the beginning she was living what she felt was a good and proper life. She had a nice job, a nice boyfriend, and was overall a good girl. She had everything she thought she wanted. Enter Steel, and Althea has to reconsider everything she ever thought she wanted. In just a few days he managed to bring out the woman hidden inside her and show her that life could be so much better than how she was living it. Overall, a quick, steamy read.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
