Book Description

Caught in a frustrating relationship with a man who can't accept her for who she is, passionate, flame-haired violinist Summer finds release in her music. She spends her afternoons busking on the underground, lost in the works of Vivaldi or Mendelssohn. When her violin is damaged beyond repair, Summer receives a surprising proposition from Dominik, a university professor with powerful desires, who has been captivated by Summer ever since he heard her perform. Dominik will replace her priceless violin, but only if she agrees to play for him in a private concert.
</p>
Unable to deny the chemistry between them, Dominik and Summer embark on an intense affair full of daring twists and turns, as unpredictable as it is thrilling. For Summer it is a chance to finally embrace her long-denied dark side, but she'll soon learn that where there's pleasure must come pain. And can a relationship born of such all-consuming passion, ever really survive?
</p>
Exhilarating, seductive and tantalisingly bold, EIGHTY DAYS is a love story that will leave you breathless for more.


Product Description

Review

Fun, frisky, and grown-up. It's refreshing to see female desire comes in more shades than just grey! (Belle de Jour)

If you're a fan of the Fifty Shades series, you'll love the first instalment of this new trilogy about the turbulent and sexually charged relationship between two strangers. It's seriously addictive stuff, so get stuck in. (LOOK)

Full of passionate ... love scenes ... Yellow: it's the new grey. (NEW!)

Book Description

In the manner of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, Vina Jackson's compelling, pulse-racing trilogy is a mouth-watering feast for the senses.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT a love story 22 Aug. 2012
By Marleen
Format:Paperback
Summer Zahova is a violinist from New Zealand, living in London where she is in a frustrating relationship with a man who can't meet her needs and struggling to make ends meets.
While busking in the underground, Summer gets caught up in a scuffle between rival football supporters which damages her violin beyond repair.
Dominik is a university professor who found himself enthralled by Summer and the way she loses herself while playing the violin on the one occasion he saw and heard her play. Unable to find her again and with no idea who the beautiful redhead is, he has almost given up the hope of ever meeting her when he reads an article about a violinist whose violin was broken. Now that he has a name, Dominik can contact Summer and he sets her a challenge:
"I am willing to gift you with a new violin. Do you accept my challenge and my terms?"
Unable to resist Summer contacts Dominik and agrees to play for him in a location and under circumstances to be determined by him.
And so starts a strange, but initially, fascinating relationship. Summer discovers that submitting to Dominik's requests satisfies her in a way she didn't know was possible, while Dominik's need for Summer only grows.
Things don't progress smoothly though. With their relationship being anything but exclusive Summer feels free to explore this newly discovered sexuality of hers with others as well. And when third parties become involved in the interactions between Dominik and his musician feelings get hurt and the two are torn apart.
With Summer delving deeper into the BDSM scene in New York, and Dominik left behind in London with no idea where the girl he needs is, both find themselves delving into relationships that don't begin to meet their needs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter but worth the read 13 Aug. 2012
By Beanie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was for me, slow to get going. But it does pick up and is a great read. I loved the way you got the views of both characters, you understand them more and their actions. Not as erotic as FSOG, in my opinon. But it contains everything you want from a book, seduction, romance (sort of) and a cliff hanger. You really do need to stick with the book to the end. I am now looking forward to the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really rather good... 23 July 2012
Format:Paperback
Don't be put off by the flagrant copy-cat cover look, this is far, far better than Fifty Shades of Grey, and it's a shame that the publishers felt that in this day and age they had to mimic the E.L. James to get anyone to read it.

The first thing to briefly mention is how much better written it is - this author can actually write! I found Fifty Shades a bit boring and repetitive, and the sex was a bit...unsexy. Anna is hands down the most irritating fictional heroine I have ever come across, and I haven't met anyone who hasn't agreed with me - even if they liked the books! She's a simpering virgin-turned-sex-goddess (really? After her first time?!) who does a disservice to women everywhere.

...Which is why Summer Zahova, the main character here, makes such a refreshing change. She loves sex (she's actually had sex!) and has some awareness of her own deviant nature. She's more realistic than Anna and so you can engage with her and her, less prissy, sexual awakening.

I really enjoyed the alternating chapters from Dominik's point of view. By the end of book one I was rooting for both of them and (without wanting to spoil anything) I really hope they can make it work in book two.

And you can't really get away with not mention sex in a review for this book - there's unsurprisingly a fair amount of it. Eighty Days Yellow is dirtier - it's all about BDSM and the characters experimentations in the adventurous, glamorously discreet world of the fetish scene. No two sex scenes are the same; some are slow, some more energetic and aggressive, and some pretty hard-core. Although I think there are still things to be explored in the 2nd and 3rd books which I hope are coming out soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eighty Dayy Yellow review 8 Nov. 2012
By Colin_D
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In reading 'Eighty Days Yellow' I got so involved with the main character Summer that I could hardly put the book down. The book was well written and when I say that it took me just two days to read it, contrasting the many days it might take going through a similar sized book, that I have susequently obtained the two follow up novels, one of which I have read already. I'm saving the third as a treat for a weekend when I will be less busy with other things so you can get some idea of how well the books by Vina Jackson have pleased me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 26 July 2012
By Caitie
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow!! much better than I expected. Read it in a day! A friend visiting from London leant me her kindle with this on it (hence the rush to finish the book) as the main female character is a kiwi. I was reluctant to read it as I always thought that 'steamy' romance novels are just bad porn but I was surprised to find this is actually pretty good. There's a lot of sex in it but it's all tasteful and relevant to the plot and the character development - not just there for the sake of it.

Nice to see a different take on the heroine and hero, not just the strong man and weak woman scenario which can get a bit old.

I usually read historical romances because I like the extra complexity in the plot, but I found this a really good story though it has a contemporary setting - and to be honest I thought it would be crap. I'm not a big reviewer but thought I'd post about this as most people will probably assume its a 50 Shades knock off because of the title. I wouldn't have read it if it wasn't recommended.
