Review: House of Pleasure by Deborah Court

House of Pleasure by 

Summary: When Jane Eden inherits an old Victorian mansion on the outskirts of Boston, she has no idea what secrets it harbors. She soon discovers that it's a magic house, fulfilling all the sexual fantasies of its female residents. Losing herself in sensual dreams that take her to exotic places and delightful historical eras, she never considers what will happen if she ever loses her heart. 

Luke Thomas is Hollywood's most celebrated action-hero, used to swooning fans falling all over him. One day he meets a beautiful woman in a park who doesn't seem to be interested in him at all. It's a challenge he just can't resist. His desire to see her again transports him to Jane's house, and he gets lost in the arms of a lover who drives him into a frenzy of boundless pleasure. But will he gain her love when the prize is higher than she's willing to pay?

Review: A quick, smutty read with little else. 

This was a bit longer than a short story, but despite the added length, there was very little actual story. Just a lot of sex. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading about sex, but I need some build up, some tension associated with it. The sex was quite hot and fun to read about. Why are authors so afraid to name female body parts? I don't want to hear terms like hot love channel. And I didn't get why loved blossomed between Jane and Eden that quickly. They had sex, a number of times, but there was no explanation besides an "instant" connection, which could have been attributed to the magic of the house. 


Recommendation: I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys smut and doesn't need a story.
