    Hot Read

    So... you've been beat up and you need an obscene amount of money or else you and your family will die because of your addict sister's latest screw up. What would you do? Whatever your answer I'm sure it won't match what Ofelia Brandt did!

    Ofelia is twenty-three and unable to get work since her hit tween show went off the air. So she goes to her friend Marco who runs a gossip website and tells him she needs money fast. He tells her that there's a rumor about a video of sexy Russian billionaire Sergei Alexandrov having sex with one of his star soccer players. The video is the ultimate "get" for the gossip websites. Ofelia knows whatever she can sell the video for won't be enough to cover what the bad guys wants so she's going to have to blackmail the very connected Sergei.

    To get the video, Ofelia calls up her friends Jolie and Fox and they devise a plan to steal the video. Once they have the video, they watch it and see Sergei mastering his soccer player with some hot BDSM. Now let me say this, I don't read M/M books, but this was really hot! After watching the video the girls then engage in a fun F/F/F scene. This is obviously the "edge", in this first book from the Ellora's Cave Gen-Edge line.

    The romance truly begins when Ofelia goes to blackmail Sergei. When they meet the atmosphere fairly crackles. Their attraction is intense. Sergei agrees to her terms, with one added caveat: sleep with him, too. Before they make love, Sergei wipes off the makeup hiding her beat up face and does the honorable thing. Yet the passion that ignites between them is too much for Ofelia to deny. Then the plot twists, and Ofelia runs to find her sister. Not far behind, Sergei acts as a true hero.

    Sergei is a smart and strong hero with a questionable past. His clipped English creates tension and is true to a Russian learning English. Ofelia is a vulnerable, young woman who, although she's played the field, has never fallen in love. Despite a tendency to scheme, Ofelia's heart is in the right place. When Ofelia and Sergei unite not only do they combust, but Sergei's protective instincts ignite. Although they play with the same sex, they don't class themselves, they simply call their sexual preference "open". Sergei classes his rendezvous with the soccer player as "games", and these games truly excite Ofelia. My one criticism would be that all the openness and games that came before Ofelia and Sergei met took away from what could have been a more intense and steamier relationship between them. Ofelia's friends Fox, Jolie, and Marco are absolutely delightful. I definitely see books coming for Fox and Jolie. They're young and fun, and I can't wait to read more about them.

    Ms. Lopez has created a fun, hot, romp of a story in Bad, Bad Things. I think you'll enjoy it.
