We’ve already read, and reviewed, the first in The Black Door Trilogy, His Confession. Now, I’d like to introduce you to S.Valentine’s latest in the series, Her Confession. But, as always in a series, this review will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t read His Confession, yet, please do before reading on!
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass slippers
Genre: Romantic Erotica
Darion and Gabi are back in action and better than before, having started a meaningful relationship, but there’s the shadow of his exwife Eva looming over them, complicating their attempt as stability. Gabi’s jealousy over Eva makes her realistic and excitingly likable. Who among us hasn’t felt a bit uncomfortable when an ex pops into the picture? Oh, there’s also the fact that Darion used to bang all the dancers at his club. Obviously, this gives Gabi, and us readers, a lot to worry about.
Darion, the lovable cad, admits that Eva is his complete match; a dirty fuck, equally as devious, and ruthless in their shared business. He even finds himself altering a bit when confronted with her, his mind drifting away of squeaky-clean Gabi and towards sultry Eva who was never afraid to be kinky. And Eva knows it. She can smell his arousal and uses it to her advantage as she makes it clear that she’s in town to stay. As you read the book you wonder who Darion will choose, what will become of the club, and what secret Gabi is hiding.
This book, like the last, is written in dual POV, giving us some insight into the feelings and motivations of both Gabi and Darion. Not to say that Valentine doesn’t give us plenty of tension and uncertainty to sink our teeth into. Overall, I found this book way more involved and enjoyable than the last. Probably because I went into it invested in Gabi and Darion’s relationship and I was dying to know where the cliff hanger from His Confession left us. Once again, I suggest this series to readers who are dipping their toes into the world of erotica. It’s super spicy, but still gives you a lot of developed characters, as well as a great story line.
