Falling In by Lydia Michaels
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
3.5 Mildly Kinky and Very Steamy Stars
Falling In is a great break-me-into-erotica novel. If you are looking for a damsel to be saved by a rich billionaire (because sometimes you just need that fix), then Falling In is for you.
Evelyn is poor. She lives in the streets and works odd jobs to help support her also homeless mother. Her mother is addicted to drugs and is off the wagon. Evelyn has never had a stable home life and she’s doing the best she can do.
She just got a job as a maid and she’s booked to clean the suites.
Lucian’s suite who happens to own the hotel.
Lucian is the rich billionaire who owns the hotel. He’s a busy man and doesn’t have the time to fuss with relationships. He also likes relationships a certain way, meaning, he’s dominate. When he sees pretty Evelyn cleaning his room, he propositions her. He will pay for her life style, if she does everything he says.
I didn’t dislike Falling In, but I had a few issues. I thought Evelyn was a little to damsel for me. What can I say, I like a little damsel, not too damsel. The poor girl is poor, living on the streets, tend to her drug addict mom and there’s another slew of issues that come about. It was just all too much.
I get Lucian, he’s the alpha hero we are suppose to swoon for and even though I didn’t have too many issues with him, there was just something off. I think it was the relationship between Lucian and Evelyn.
Everything happened so fast. One moment Evelyn is a maid and the next she’s Lucian’s play thing. What I did like is that Evelyn wasn’t that stupid shy girl I dislike reading. There’s some nice banter between Lucian and Evelyn and it kept me interested.
I liked the chase and I liked how Evelyn stood up for herself. There’s plenty of drama with another person coming into the mix and Evelyn coming to terms with her feelings towards Lucian. Overall, Falling In was a pleasant read and I will continue with the series.
