The Discipline, Jade A. Waters Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: romance, erotica I hadn’t read book one, just the amazon sample, but thought this sounded fun and I’d be ok without the full story. Well, I found I could follow the story easily, but there are clearly things there that build up to this book, and really I think you need to read both to fully enjoy this. I never really got a sense of “knowing” Maya or Dean, that I knew them as people apart from their sexual inclinations. Maybe if I’d read book one? I don’t think it would have made much difference in that the book seems to concentrate on the erotic aspects rather than them as people with outside lives. The plots are really build ups to the next erotic section. Those are written very well, but for me I need that sense of empathy for the characters to make them feel more that just a sensual sex scene. That's just me though, clearly others want the erotic parts more than the story as evidenced by the sale of books now that are just excerpts of sex scenes from popular novels. I needed to really understand Maya and Dean, to feel for them, to want them to work things through and...I just wasn't that invested in them. When the secrets start to come out it makes clear some of the earlier issues they had, but when the big stumbling block hits I felt Maya was being very obtuse, it was very, very clear that they weren’t both happy at what was happening, and I think she only saw what she wanted to. A bit of thought for Dean and his actions might have made a huge difference – that would have changed to story though ;-) so it needed to unfold that way of course, but for me I needed it to be done a little differently. Its a good book, five star on the erotic part, but I felt the romance side fell down and I didn’t really get that feeling of understanding the characters, feeling as though I could “know” them and as if I was there in the story. For me that’s important, but not necessarily for everyone. That’s why it only gets three stars rather than the five the erotic section would get. I want eroticism AND romance, but felt I really just got erotic storyline line here. Stars: Three, good sex scenes but bland romance IMO. ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers
This is the second part in the Lessons in Control Series. This was an okay for me, Maya seemed a bit off to me as compared to the first part. I found the story entertaining and am looking forward to the next part of the series.
