Punishing the Art Thief by Shoshanna Evers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Fun, naughty, quick read. Perfect for that in between story to break up your other readings. Shoshanna is my new Queen of the erotic novella's. I have read two previous novella's and enjoyed them both, Punishing the Art Thief is no different.
Clearly erotic, naughty, and BDSM. Simple yet clear story line. A definite prose through out. The writer's style is quick, detailed where it needs to be, and flows from chapter to chapter with no stalling. Just as a novella should be.
Melissa is an art history professor, clearly passionate and willing to go to great lengths to view beautiful private collections. James is the security detail assigned to the event and a former student, though Melissa does not remember him.
In her quest for the private viewing, Melissa crashes an event she obviously was not invited to nor can afford. This is where the story takes off and starts moving quickly. We have a missing Rembrandt, a naughty frisking, blackmail, consenting tryst's, heated spankings and other fun naughtiness, as well as an obvious attraction between the two. The sexual scenes were detailed and rather explicit but not to the point where you were turned off, they were page turning and left you with a smile on your face and naughty thoughts on your head.
Nicely paced novella, complete from start to finish. Enjoyed the erotica as well as the couple, definitely felt the chemistry between them.
Shoshanna Evers is an erotic romance writer who holds her own and delivers every time.
