I was really hoping that Platinum would be different I mean you ve got a bad boy artist and an albino art dealer struggling to fulfill her dreams in the art world That right there was enough to capture my attention initially The story if you can even call it a full story image error It s about a young woman, Aleatha, whose looking to experience new things in life after she breaks up with her boyfriend She s suppose to be this stuffy, inexperienced woman, that s really all we find out about her background that has an interest in art When becoming an artist didn t work for her she used her trust fund to open her own gallery We re introduced to the usual dominant and overly confident guy, Steel who I can t even put a face to because the description was lacking somewhat A connection was suppose to be made because he s an artist Guess I missed it He fits the same description as every other BDSM Erotica dominant it seems Give me something new image error before I die of boredom Immediately his spicy vulgar language and sexual aggression towards Aleatha has her doing things she would never dream of In a matter of days this new relationship blooms and it s suppose to be meaningful I guess, but I m just not feeling it Long story short, some artwork is created, then there s some sex, semi kinky sex, thensex, and lastly evensex I feel it s just another failed attempt at light weight BDSM with a FIZZLING plot and watered down characters This could have been so muchif it was reworked and not rushed If the characters were gonna have a relationship that lasts then why not actually create some drama, a build up that would connect the readers to the characters, instead of having them jump into this intense sexual relationship and then attempt to develop some real feelings afterwards Or, if it was suppose to be a HIT IT AND QUIT IT , learn a little something new about your sexuality, then don t try to make itthan what it is I m sorry I wasted two days on this, but Isorry that it wasn t better I had such high hopes The Best Thing I m thinking really hard on this oneyeah I have no idea Everything just ran together The Worst Thing The same predictable concept and lacking a real story This had potential.HAD I am very sorry to say that I didn t like this book It wasn t THAT bad, but it certainly wasn t good either.The StoryWhat Where was it I didn t see it There was an introudction to the characters, and then sex, kinky and lots of it You d think that was a recipe for great Not so much.So, let me tell you something about the story here.Althea Grant owns an art gallery and is having money problems Steel yes, only Steel, like Madonna enters, offers her 10000 dollars t This had potential.HAD I am very sorry to say that I didn t like this book It wasn t

for great Not so much.So, let me tell you something about the story here.Althea Grant owns an art gallery and is having money problems Steel yes, only Steel, like Madonna enters, offers her 10000 dollars to rent a space below the gallery where he could work on his sculptures.She accepts He asks her to be his model he does erotic art She refuses And this is chapter one In chapter two she goes down in the basement and models for him He asks her to dump his boyfriend for him After having two conversations together She, of course, dumps the boyfriend Chapters three to twelve they have kinky bdsm sex.The CharactersThe characterisation was done VERY badly For one, I didn t connect to them AT ALL, and for two, they bots seemed stupid and unlikeable I may be harsh, but I just didn t like them at all.AltheaAlthea does one bad choice after another in this book.She meets a man, is attracted to him OK that is understandable , but she basically doesn t know ANYTHING about him, and she accepts to rent him space right below her gallery, in the same building she lives in They talk two times, he asks her to dump her boyfriend for him she does it and in the same evening she accepts to be owned sexually by Steel and accepts to do whatever he wants with her getting tied up, spanked, beaten, chained and doing a blowjob to a metal statue, and many other stuff I can t remember but all of it kinky , and all of it after only TWO CONVERSATIONS and without even knowing the man whatsoever Good decision Althea SteelYou know when a character is a jerk but you still end up loving him This didn t happen here for me.Steel is a total jerk, totally unbelievable as a character, claiming he is obsessed with her and has to have her modeling, slaving, whatever after seeing her only once OK I get it, he s probably being led by his d ck, but still On their second meet he tells her he doesn t poach on another man s property and asks her to dump her boyfriend for him Some of the language he used and said to her It wasn t hot, it was crude I like dirty talk, but this was just tacky I didn t get the feel he was a Dom, oh no He just liked to do kinky stuff to her, and boy did he do it There was even a scene where she view spoiler used her safeword hide spoiler because he just couldn t control himself and went too far.And I m supposed to like him No thanks.The SexIt wasn t written that badly, some of it was hot, but it just felt wrong because the people concerned were unlikeable.BUT, if you want to read some very kinky sexy times without caring for the characters, then you might

Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 3 StarsI think that this story had a lot of potential but somehow, fell short Not long enough to deliver what it promises you and I can t believe I m even saying it too much sex for the story to make sense.Yes, you heard me right Too much SEX Well, let s try make, some sense Art grabs you like lust inexplicable and irresistible You could deny it, but then the unfulfilled desire just ate you up This book entices us with the liberating and soul stripping force of art The way it expresses your feelings and unveils your deepest secrets The ones that you don t know you are hiding Are you familiar with the legend of Persephone and HadesOf course you are But have you ever considered that maybe Persephone was a willing captive That in the deepest Hell, found freedom and the other half of her soulAlthea Grant is our unsuspecting Persephone.An albino and gallery owner, she the sensible daughter, the perfect girlfriend, a proper lady.What she really is chained Washed out, not because of her coloring but of the lockdown, she has on her feelings and emotions Cold That s the facade she puts on for everyone Because she is afraid of her own passionAlthea looks all fragile and ethereal, but she s like tempered metal inside Strong Flexible, too, I ll betSteel is the man that will set her freeNot every guy has a noun for a name Not unless he s bold and manly like meThis dark man, an accomplished artist, arrogant and earthy, will drag Althea in his lair and he will strip her bare, crushing her to put her back together CAN YOU SEE HOW MUCH PROMISING, THIS STORY WAS But it all happened too quickly Althea kept changing attitude and her mind in an instant and her transformation from meek to bold wasn t believable I didn t get the parents issue, both seemed really charming and this book was torn between an erotica and a really sugary romanceI feel like weeping, because I wanted to love it Well, maybe it just didn t work for me This book had a promising startAlthea the timid, conservative art gallery owner meets Steel, the tattooed biker artist who wants to display his art in Althea s gallery The problem is that Steel s art is blatantly sexual in content Even if it is brilliant, as Althea tells him, it simply has no place in her gallery Since that scenario doesn t work out for Steel, he decides that he needs her basement to live in and work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to be a way for these two t This book had a promising startAlthea the timid, conservative art gallery owner meets Steel, the tattooed biker

gallery Since that scenario doesn t work out for Steel, he decides that he needs her basement to live in and work on his art Ummmmokay I guess there has to be a way for these two to meet up and get it on continuously Despise the myriad things keeping them apart, that is I had quite a few problems with the story after about page twenty I think this author tried to pack way too much into a 120 page erotic novella type book Example 1 Althea has a man already After a quick intro to Steel, she takes care of the pesky boyfriend problem within about seven pages And Steel and Althea proceed to get it on for nearly the rest of the entire book Since Althea is such a goodie goodie, and Steel iswell, notI expected there to be some spice in the bedroom Errr..basement But after awhile, Althea s introduction into Steel s type of not so vanilla sex began to have an icky feel It was as if Steel becamelascivious with each sex scene I started to think of him as a dirty old guy, sneering at her each time he debased her in a new way Honestly, he wasn t that bad It was just that every sex scene was a new instruction, a new shock, a different teaching, and this chick was down for it all Althea too readily allows Steel to tie her up I can t imagine letting a guy whom I ve known for less than a week not only move into my basement but render me completely powerless and then feel all romantic and tender toward him after he has me suck off inanimate objectsin the name of art, of course Ahem.had I not felt uncomfortable about the setting and situation, I would have also said that the sex is HOT If that s what you want, it s definitely here.The author tries again during the last twenty pages to turn this into a deep, meaningful storyintroducing her badass boyfriend to her uptight society parents and letting Steel basically change every last flaw that she perceives herself to havefrom the way she runs her gallery to the way she dresses to her interpersonal relationships with all of her loved ones.it was just way too much It didn t work at all This should have either stayed a hot, fast affair, or been turned into a fleshier novel with about two hundredpages to play with In my humble opinion, Althea did a lot of changing, a lot of crawling, a lot of new things for a man that we never really learn anything about.Though I think the author has talent she needs to put some length into a novel if she want this reader to connect with her characters Either that or just keep it all about the sex and new experiences ARC kindly provided by Carina Press via Net Galley
