I just made one of the "eureka" discoveries of an author of erotic romance who combines smoking hot sex scenes with dark tormented characters and intense romance. Jeffe Kennedy is her name and I read Platinum in a single afternoon, loving every steamy minute. A smart, savvy heroine working hard to keep her head above water and keep her gallery open, an intense and wonderfully alpha artist hero and BDSM-flavored sex scenes that made me swoon. All in all erotic romance perfection. My only issue was I wished it were longer and the end was rather sudden.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.

Platinum is full of fiery passion, breathless sighs, and throaty moans. Althea is an artist who paints the world in pale pastels. She has her routine, the polite boyfriend, and he life is dreadfully boring-not that she would tell anyone that. Appearance means a lot to her. She is always sharply dressed, and all you want to do is muss her and disturb her unflappable calm. She is always in control of every aspect of her life, that is until she meets Steel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Steel is a metal sculptor whose work invokes erotic images.When he sees Althea he has an almost primal reaction to her. He sets out to seduce her, to take her, and to claim her. He is sexy, an Alpha male to the extreme, and just plain yummy.
The seduction, the beauty, and the breathless anticipation will keep you up all night, devouring every word.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

2.5 starsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Althea is a gallery owner who always wanted to be an artist but never measured up. One day Steel, a handsome, dark stranger, enters her gallery and asks to rent her basement to work on his sculptures. Little does she know that Steel is about to change her life by revealing another side of her.
I thought the concept behind the book was interesting with a unique take on your usual opposites attract story. However, I feel that the concept failed in its execution, focusing mainly on their sexual relationship and not enough on their romantic one. I loved Steel, but I didn't really connect to him because the glimpses I got of him were superficial at best. I wanted to know what really drove him and what his story was all about. Although Althea was developed throughout the story I truly did not feel that her development was real mainly because all these changes in her happened too fast.
There are stories you start reading and immediately capture your attention. Although this was the case with Platinum in the beginning as the story progressed I lost my interest. I'm sorry to say that there was too much sex. Yes, I said it. Too much sex and only a couple of them really added to the story at all. Don't get me wrong, they were hot and on the kinky side and I loved them, but apparently I like a little story with my sex and Platinum did not deliver.
Although the writing was very good and the characters were interesting together, I felt that their story was rushed. From what I gathered Althea and Steel had major issues with how to make a relationship work and I could not believe that their relationship would come by so smoothly. Especially since it was based mainly on sex.
I really wanted to love this book, especially since I thought Steel was such a great character and the concept was so different, but it didn't reach its potential.
I received this title from Carina Press through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.

A struggle art gallery owner, Althea, has rented her basement for the aspiring artist Steel. Steel finds himself attracted and interested in Althea.

Althea needs to find a way out the financial slump that she is in before she has to close the doors to the gallery. Who or what will help Althea out in this story?
I had some difficulty with story since the story seemed a bit rushed, the flow was not the greatest and not written well overall. The author could have added some additional information for character development and et cetera to the story.
The sexual heat between the two main characters was heated and interesting.
