Having said that, The Sex Lounge is not one of their steamier publications. The sex is there it just doesn't take the spotlight. Not that that is anything to complain about. Certainly here it's appreciated as the main characters are so likeable.
Nichole is a secretary for a PR company, Derek a furniture designer who elists their services. She writes her sexual fantasies in a notebook, though never acts on them. The notebook falls into the hands of the man who stars in the majority of her writings. As a consummate scoundrel he refuses to give her the book back until they put her words into action. Nichole doesn't so much as pretend to protest. They begin an affair, there are a few obstacles thrown in by supplementary characters and Derek's fear of commitment. Nichole has her work cut out for her and puts in a valiant effort in the hopes of changing her born-to-be-free hero.
A thoroughly enjoyable read from Rachelle Chase, I look forward to her next offering.

I thought that the summary with this book might have a little intrigue in it. Maybe he would tease her for a bit about the stories she has written? Maybe she will find a willing muse to help her create more stories for her notebook? Nope. What we get is a man who bribes her to date him so she can get her notebook back with horrible side characters that are not memorable.
The whole story to me seemed forced. I felt like the author was forcing this couple together and I couldn't even pinpoint the exact moment they each had the spark that made them realize they felt more for each other than just sex. The suspense part of the plot was flat and more of an after thought. The suspense, to me, was if I could actually hold out reading further in the book between sex romps.
Yes, again, I love my smut books, but I do have a brain as well. I want a smut book with substance and something to make me believe in the characters.
One would think that this book would be sizzling and so erotic you would need your own notebook to fan yourself. Well even though these certain scenes try to be inventive, they are very much ordinary and boring due to the fact that the hero and heroine are so unemotionally detached.
We are lead to believe Derek is so damaged emotionally that all he can offer a woman is mind blowing sex. As always with these types of characters, one set of parents are to blame. The whole thing is very tedious.
Nichole is the same way. She works for a model talent agency and feels below par afraid she will turn out to be like her mother. All she thinks about is sex with Derek. There is so much talking and internal dialogue going on that when it comes to the actual action, it is just too blah.
Overall the book needs a better editor. Days of the week become confused along with changing of clothes that normally could not happen.
Perhaps the too little number of pages is to blame along with this being a novice author.
For more mind blowing out of this world fantasies look elsewhere.
