Now if I recall correctly, I didn’t give the first book in the Unbreakable Trilogy a favorable review. Where I said that one was choppy and disjointed, this one had a smoother finish. It didn’t feel rushed and more thought out as we can see more of the relationships growing not only between Selena & Gustav but Gustav & Pierre. Ohhh and don’t let us forgot about Margot and Polly. I can add a few more words to my descriptions this time. Sultry, exotic, scheming, steamy, intriguing, and turmoil would be some that I could use. Although I could say it shows much improvement over Silver Chain, I’m saying I liked but didn’t love it. Last time I had to really stretch to give it 2 stars…this time I can push it to a 3 out of 5 stars. Again please know that I got this free ARC from HarperCollins UK of Mischief Books in exchange that I give my honest opinion in return. Even though I’m not screaming a high review from the roof tops, doesn’t mean that you can’t have another opinion about it. Just know that that these are my words and have no effect on anyone associated with making of the book.

Overall, The Golden Locket delivered great character development, tension, and l loved walking away with my own sense of being a voyeur. Serena Folkes is quickly discovering a new side to her, and isn't shy in convincing Gustav in what she wants. Although, the poor guy after all he's endured with his ex-wife, I just want him to have his peace, and be happy. This installment in the Unbreakable Trilogy was a vast improvement over the first, and I'm dying to read the final book. Aside from a few quirky lines that feel misplaced, this series is a must read for fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, and have an appreciation for photography. Be prepared to be whisked away to Serene's world where anything goes, and middle-aged folk are sexy and confident in their lifestyle choices.  4 stars.

A very hot erotic romance Contemporary, New York City &amp; Venice Serena Folkes and Gustav Levi are now in Manhattan enjoying their new found love. As they settle in their new penthouse they have every satisfaction they could need. Though they are enjoying their new pleasure ground in New York, ghosts from Gustav&rsquo;s past start to intrude into their lives. When Gustav&rsquo;s younger brother, Pierre, who is damaged comes back into Gustav&rsquo;s life he brings problems with him including a dangerous threat. With all the temptations and ghosts waiting at every turn for Gustav and Serena it will test them in ways that they have not been tempted so far. Will they survive what they are facing or will this end up destroying them? This story picks up shortly after the first book ends filling in what the reader needs to know in such a way as to make it intriguing to read. This is one trilogy that is proving that it needs to be read in order so that the reader gets all the nuances of the plot that has so far been weaved through the first two books. With a fascinating cliff hanger at the end that is sure to have readers eagerly awaiting the third and final book in this trilogy just to see how things will ultimately turn out for Gustav and Serena and if it will be possible for them to have a very well deserved happily ever after. This is one book that should be read with the ac on full blast with a glass of ice water sitting nearby. The series is proving to be extremely hot and explosive. This is one for reader of erotic romances to definitely check out. They will not be disappointed.

Book #2 - another perfectly moving, gripping &amp; deeply erotic Love Story! &copy; ¿ Bianca ¿ PRIMULA BOND - THE GOLDEN LOCKET ¿¿¿¿¿ 5 Stars &bull; release date: ebook: 21 November - Paperback: 19 December 2013 &bull; 400 pages &bull; Unbreakable Trilogy #2 Book #3 - The Diamond Ring will be out May 2014 MY THOUGHTS About the story... After Serena agreed to accompany Gustav to New York at the End of The Silver Chain, we now find oursevles in Manhattan. It's New Year's Eve. &quot;This is going to be a fabulous year, Serena Folkes.&quot; Serena is thinking back on what happened these last days &quot;This is the first day of the rest of our lives, girl.&quot; - and to what happened on their last day in London. Remember? When we left Serena &amp; Gustav in book #1 they were on their way to pack their bags and fly to New York, but first they went to the Gallery where we met - PLEASE DO NOT KEEP ON READING IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE FIRST BOOK!!!!! We met Pierre! Gustav's long lost little brother. He's the new boyfriend that Serena's cousin Polly has been with for a while now! OMG I was sooo shocked at the end of The Silver Chain!!! Pierre! Gustav and Pierre hadn't spoken in FIVE years and now here he is!!! Lots of things happend all those years ago - we heard most of it in book #1, but we'll hear a lot more now. How Pierre saw it - how Gustav saw it. And of course we hear a lot about Gustav's Ex-Wife Margot. The b***h ¿¿¿ On that night 5 years ago she seduced the young Pierre, took the family heirloom-jewels and the poor boy with her and disappeared! She told Pierre soo many lies that he stopped worshipping his big brother and started hating him. Well - the story of Gustav, Pierre &amp; Margot is a really big part of this book. And poor Serena is right in the middle of it all, because Pierre seems a bit too interested in her and Serena is a tiny bit attracted to him too. Not everything is about the Levi's of course. Serena is in New York City now - she wants to become a famous photographer!! And with the help of her lover she has landed her first commissions. The first one: shooting pictures of a billionaire housewife... Not as easy as it sounds - turns out the &uuml;ber-rich european couple is extremely kinky. They start making out in front of Serena's camera and they don't stop there ¿ They even want to convince Serena to join them. But Serena doesn't want to betray Gustav like that. But Gustav knows his darling girl better than she knows herself. He knows she needs this - she needs her voyerism and he wants her to experiment new kinky things... well, he doesn't really want it - but he thinks that she needs it - she's so young - has so much yet to experience and he hopes with letting her experiment a bit she will be happier with him. &quot;My little country bumpkin. What's happened to her?&quot; The book might also take us to another city ¿ but that's it - I'm not telling you anything more... ....like..... WILL THERE BE A HAPPY END? I can't tell you, of course ¿ I don't want to spoil your reading pleasure ¿ BUT - since there will be a third book - there probably won't be a HEA - YET ¿¿¿ There are still many questions and secrets left to talk about ¿ _________________________________ I REALLY ENJOYED THIS SEQUEL TO THE SILVER CHAIN! I really loved the first book in the series - and with this horrible cliffhanger-ending I was sooooo looking forward to this second book!! And it didn't disappoint at all! I think I even loved it a bit more than the first one!! There were so many interesting moments in this book. So many deeply erotic scenes. There's not all that much really explicitly described sex between Gustav and Serena (doesn't mean there is NO sex between them!!!) but there are soooo many sexy scenes!!! Gustav &amp; Serena. Serana &amp; other people with Gustav watching, or not watching ;) . The whole book has this deeply erotic vibe without having a sex scene on every other page! Serena and Gustav are so adorably in love - after everything that happened in book #1 - that's really nice to see. But Serena is drawn to so many other things, other men/women ...she has so much sexual energy in her. She doesn't want to leave or hurt Gustav but she sure does experiment a lot ¿ The whole story about Margot and Gustav and Pierre's past is this constant suspensy cloud hanging over this book. I couldn't put it down - or if I had to go do something else for a while, I couldn't stop thinking about the book. I NEEDED to know what would happen. And of course, I needed to know if Margot will ever show up again. We - the reader - hate her so much. Well, at least I did ¿ I didn't want her to come between G+S!!! She's caused enough trouble already - without having been there at all!! Normally I'm not a fan of girl on girl sexiness - well, I'm still not a fan - but it didn't bother me all that much in here. It somehow needs to be in this book. Serena needs all that experimenting. I also love how Primula describes things. Like, when we're in Venice, I could almost smell the oregano and the fish and the rain ¿ I was right there with them!!! The end didn't shock me as much as the end of book 1 did - but it still leaves lots of questions open ... and there are still all those secrets. I sooo want Serena and Gustav to get their happy ever after! &hearts; Ahem - and going by the title of book#3 - THE DIAMOND RING ??? ¿ I have very high hopes!!!! (The title of this book - The Golden Locket - plays a big part again - like it did with The Silver Chain. Those 2 things are actual pieces that Gustav gives Serena as gifts and to bind her to him.) I totally recommend this book (this whole series) to readers who love a great, deeply erotic, moving &amp; gripping Love Story! You might even shed some tears - at least I did ¿ GRRRRR now I can't wait for book #3 to come out!!!! Tomorrow would be nice Mrs. Bond ¿ Were there a few things I didn't like? Hm can't think of anything ¿ For some people there might be too many words in this book ¿ It's not one of those 250 pages - fast-reading new adult romance thingies. It's a real book!!!! I really loved it. GO GET IT!¿
