Erotic Romance Review: By The Hour by Roni Loren

By The Hour by Roni Loren (Pleasure Principle #2)


Synopsis from Goodreads
, Lane Cannon, dares to flirt with her, she shuts him down cold. Too gorgeous. Too cocky. And his job as The Grove’s sexual surrogate is to sleep with patients. No, thank you.

Former escort Lane Cannon has spent enough years with people looking down on him. Stupid. Trailer trash. Rent boy. He’s heard it all. He’s worked too hard to shed his past to let some haughty doctor cut him down. But something about Elle’s ice queen act has his dominant instincts perking up and his body taking notice. He can’t walk away.

After an evening of verbal sparring turns into a night of steamy hate sex, Lane’s ready for round two. But Elle proposes a business deal. How better to keep things strictly physical than to pay him for his services?

Lane wants her, not her money. But he’ll play along in exchange for one thing—all the control. It’s only supposed to be a dirty little fling between colleagues, but these two are about to learn a lesson in love…by the hour.

Dedicated to my friend, B., a closet fan of erotic romance, who keeps pestering me to post another review soon.

I like how you always know where you stand with Roni Loren. She consistently delivers good, complex, thought-provoking characters in subversive, steamy situations.

I especially enjoy this series as it deals with mental disorders of various kind and many insecurities the therapists themselves battle.

Elle is a top specialist in her field and she is quite clear about her triggers and social anxieties, as in she sees where they are coming from but she is not willing to work on them. She is attracted to Lane, perversely, as he is a surrogate - someone who helps people overcome their intimacy issues through physical intimacies. He does not have sex sex with people but there might be a lot physical touching and closeness involved between him and his patients. As Elle's ex-husband cheated on her, Lane's job hits Elle's insecurities pretty hard.

Lane on the other hand has his own baggage where he wants to prove to people he is worth more than just his body, but he can not move further in his profession without admitting that he has learning difficulties so as to make allowances for the way he studies for his degree.

Surprisingly, seeing each other weaknesses and feeling the need to help overcome them makes Lane and Elle a very efficient duo with a lot of things in common.

Don't get me wrong, the bedroom scenes are steamy but the really fascinating stuff is what's happening in their heads and their personal growth.

A very believable couple, fabulous dominance games without any submissiveness from a female character which went well with her need to shut her brain off during sex, and of course a lovely story of finding each other against all odds.

Thumbs up, very much recommended.

Off The Clock (Pleasure Principle #1)

Посвящается моему другу Б., тайному фанату эротического романа, который все нажимает на меня выложить еще одну рецензию.

Я люблю, что я всегда знаю, чего ожидать от Рони Лорен: добротных, сложных персонажей в щекотливых и стимулирующих ум ситуациях.

Мне особенно нравится эта серия, так как она посвящена мириадам психологических проблем и терапевтам с ними борющимся.

Эль - известный специалист в поле своей деятельности, и она прекрасно знает о своих тараканах и их причинах, только вот работать над ними не хочет. Что особо странно смотрится на фоне ее влечения к Лэйну, который работает секс-суррогатом в ее клинике, помогая пациентам пересилить проблемы интимной близости. После унизительных измен бывшего мужа, работа Лэйна для Эль - красный флаг.

У Лэйна тоже не все идеально с самооценкой. Он очень не любят когда о нем судят по его работе, и в тоже время его гордыня не позволяет признать, что у него дислексия и попросить специальных условий обучения в его колледже, где он обучается на терапевта.

Неожиданно, именно обоюдные слабости помогают Эль и Лэйну пересилить свои внутренние проблемы в порыве помочь друг другу, и их диалоги и моменты страсти в этом плане откровенны и полны интереснейшего самоанализа.

Не поймите меня неправильно, постельные сцены прекрасны: с перчинкой доминирования без какой-либо подчиненности со стороны Эль, которой как характеру это не требуется. Наоборот, силовой элемент вкупе со словесными перепалками помогает Эль перестать слишком много думать и просто наслаждаться происходящим. Но, самое интересное лично для меня - это мысли и персональное развитие главных героев.

В общем, интересно, горячо и заставляет нас думать. Очень советую и автора и особенно серию.

Первая книга серии.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
