    Venetian Love Knots is a story that caught my interest from the beginning to the very last page It is well written, and it was about a young woman Allison, who has traveled to Venice to be in her best friend s wedding as her maid of honor Unfortunately, her ex boyfriend, Cole, also happens to be the Best Man, and she dreads seeing him as their relationship ended badly four years before.When Allison gets to Venice she is picked up by the groom s brother, and Allison feels an instant attraction Venetian Love Knots is a story that caught my interest from the beginning to the very last page It is well written, and it was about a young woman Allison, who has traveled to Venice to be in her best friend s wedding as her maid of honor Unfortunately, her ex boyfriend, Cole, also happens to be the Best Man, and she dreads seeing him as their relationship ended badly four years before.When Allison gets to Venice she is picked up by the groom s brother, and Allison feels an instant attraction to Nico, and he feels the same way They wind up spending the day together, and in the evening he takes her back to her hotel, where she runs into Cole and he manipulates her into going up to his room and they end up being together again for the night.The next day is the wedding and things take an interesting turn Things happen that in normal circumstances Allison would have never allowed herself to be manipulated into doing,and to wake up the next morning when she finds herself alone and she is told by the groom about an email sent to Cole she finds out that what she did the night before for Cole was for nothing, and she is beyond humiliated.I can t say anything else without giving the plot away, but I love how this book turns out and themessage it gives My favorite quote from this book was stated by Nico, after she has been betrayed by Cole and Nico tells her Cara that bothered me to hear you being humiliated in public that way He shook his head indisgust He disrespected you I could not stand to have you treated that way Then again when everything was talked over between Allison and Nico and he said, Cara, you should know that you can explore all of your fantasies your heart desires with a man whorespects you I can still tie you up and spank you and whatever else we can think of, but I will always respect you, he said.I give this book a five star rating, and look forward to readingby this author

    I tore right through this in about two hours it was a fabulously engrossing read I loved the flashback hookup scene, and the descriptions of Venice totally transported me there Allison came across as a believable blend of trusting sweet and wild willing I wasn t sure where the plot was going to go, which made it really fun to read Cole was a bit of a cad, although a very hot cad, and Nico was a lovable dreamboat The menage scene was believable, too, and super steamy Yowza Highly recom I tore right through this in about two hours it was a fabulously engrossing read I loved the flashback hookup scene, and the descriptions of Venice totally transported me there Allison came across as a believable blend of trusting sweet and wild willing I wasn t sure where the plot was going to go, which made it really fun to read Cole was a bit of a cad, although a very hot cad, and Nico was a lovable dreamboat The menage scene was believable, too, and super steamy Yowza Highly recommend this sweet, erotic love story

    This was a quick, short read at a little under 70 pages I was engaged from beginning to end with the story and the pacing was pretty good There wasn t really any time to get bored and the plot just kept moving along taking you with it I m really happy this book was set in one of my all time favorite countries and one of my favorite cities within that country The setting is Venice, Italy I ve been to Venice twice so for me the descriptions of the city were pretty accurate and made me envisio This was a quick, short read at a little under 70 pages I was engaged from beginning to end with the story and the pacing was pretty good There wasn t really any time to get bored and the plot just kept moving along taking you with it I m really happy this book was set in one of my all time favorite countries and one of my favorite cities within that country The setting is Venice, Italy I ve been to Venice twice so for me the descriptions of the city were pretty accurate and made me envision that I was back in Italy strolling along the streets taking in the vendors and splendor that is very unique city on water If you haven t been to Italy, I think that the author s descriptions were good enough that you could envision yourself there Or at least make yourself think it s time to take that romantic getaway trip that you have been planning on but haven t had the chance to take As for the romance that is set in one of the most romantic cities in the world, it is a love triangle Typically, I m not that into love triangles but this one wasn t so bad We have Allison, who has never quite gotten over Cole whose was pretty much a dick in their relationship but the relationship was so intense in and out of bed that no one since has quite matched up That is until Nico picks her up from the airport Nico is the intense attraction with somesubstance behind him Nico is just as intensely attracted to Allison as she is to him In this love triangle, Cole arrives in Venice determined to win Allison back Since they parted he too has not felt anything as intense as it had been with Allison All Cole really had to do to win Allison over was pretty much say hi I was pretty disappointed that she went back to that douche so easily but at the same time, when your dickmatized Click here to see what dickmatized is sometimes it s hard to think clearly LOL And this chick was clearly dickmatized I am not a fan of Cole, from the get go, there really is just not much to like about him His way of making it up to Allison for having sex with one of her best friends was to have a threesome with another man Now, admittedly Allison is pretty sexually open, but come call it what it is a fantasy, but not a way to make it up to her Only in a douches brain would that be a good way to make it up to the one who got away Now that being said, that I clearly didn t like our hero , I don t think we were supposed to like him I think Normandie Alleman didn t want us to like him, wants us to root for Nico and for Allison to get her head out of her a and choose the right man for her But the question is, who will she pick in this crazy love triangle Since this is an erotica novel, I feel like I would be remiss in my duties if I didn t at least mention the sex I have to say it was pretty hot The flash backs to a younger Allison and Cole as well as the older Allison and Cole, it is easy to see why the girl was dickmatized Cole certainly knew what he was doing He understood Allison s needs better than she did The threesome scene wasn t what I was used to from other such scenes, Nico and Cole weren t really a team, they didn t really work together for Allison s pleasure It was basically three different people with three different goals All three goals were hot and it was pretty sexy but it wasn t as cohesive as I was used to, but it worked within this story s framework I think would have gone against the love triangle aspect if it had been cohesive with Nico and Cole working as a team Overall, it was a pretty good novella I enjoyed it for what it is and I would pick up another book by this author in the future This title was provided by the author for an honest review No other compensation was provided Rating 3.75 Romanticals

    Spanking Romance ReviewVenetian Love Knots started out for me like a typical romance where our main girl, Allison Fox, is recalling sexy times with her former everything Cole as well as the awful, violent incident that ended their time together Allison travels to Venice, a romantic city on its own, to celebrate the marriage of her good friend and participate in all of her maid of honor duties Allison knows that Cole is also going to be at the wedding and the first part of the story is mostly Spanking Romance ReviewVenetian Love Knots started out for me like a typical romance where our main girl, Allison Fox, is recalling sexy times with her former everything Cole as well as the awful, violent incident that ended their time together Allison travels to Venice, a romantic city on its own, to celebrate the marriage of her good friend and participate in all of her maid of honor duties Allison knows that Cole is also going to be at the wedding and the first part of the story is mostly convincing her inner self that she is over him and that he has no pull over her any.Enter Nico, a smoking hot Italian stranger who sweeps Allison off in a gondola and treats her like an absolute princess Despite Allison hangups and caution she relaxes around Nico and genuinely enjoys herself Allison has a lot of self dialogue going on but this new pair has a ton of potential.They are so sweet on each other, and to each other, and sigh I was swooning right along.Then this bad ass cowboy, i.e former everything Cole struts right into the picture My first thought was, No Don t look at him but alas Ms Fox is swept up in those dazzling eyes and charming smile and she is, as the author notes, falling down the rabbit hole I can see through his charm, and I can see how controlling Cole, who supposedly has been thinking of our girl since they split, is when he grabs Allison Despite this I found myself getting manipulated by his smooth words and handsome features I wanted to believe, just like Allison that he was different and longed for only her.Cole is dominating in every sense of the word and Allison gets weak in the knees just by the mere thought of his touch I get it, he s that rebel with a heart of gold that I love so much, isn t he I won t give away the ending but Allison and I were both deceived I also have to say that I was completely and utterly thrown by the steamy BDSM undertones and the unexpected menage that occurs I will not name those involved but one minute you are wrapped up in knots with Allison and suddenly a naughty proposal slides off Cole s lips that literally makes you go back and read it again Did he really just say invite a stranger up here I was all a buzz with that idea and let me tell you, this author does NOT disappoint in the sexual scenes Too muchwill again spoil, so be sure you are alone in a locked room before reading As tied up as I was with the scene, I also started to realize that Cole was not what he appeared It started as a little seed of doubt and by the end of the story it was a full bloom deception I am happy to report that the author gives us a very happy ending and I will look for future titles I would have liked just a little bitinsight to the way that Cole acted and a littlefight to Allison as she seemed a lot stronger Overall, I really enjoyed Normandie Alleman and award Venetian Love Knots four stars

    Spanking Romance ReviewVenetian Love Knots started out for me like a typical romance where our main girl, Allison Fox, is recalling sexy times with her former everything Cole as well as the awful, violent incident that ended their time together Allison travels to Venice, a romantic city on its own, to celebrate the marriage of her good friend and participate in all of her maid of honor duties Allison knows that Cole is also going to be at the wedding and the first part of the story is mostly Spanking Romance ReviewVenetian Love Knots started out for me like a typical romance where our main girl, Allison Fox, is recalling sexy times with her former everything Cole as well as the awful, violent incident that ended their time together Allison travels to Venice, a romantic city on its own, to celebrate the marriage of her good friend and participate in all of her maid of honor duties Allison knows that Cole is also going to be at the wedding and the first part of the story is mostly convincing her inner self that she is over him and that he has no pull over her any.Enter Nico, a smoking hot Italian stranger who sweeps Allison off in a gondola and treats her like an absolute princess Despite Allison hangups and caution she relaxes around Nico and genuinely enjoys herself Allison has a lot of self dialogue going on but this new pair has a ton of potential.They are so sweet on each other, and to each other, and sigh I was swooning right along.Then this bad ass cowboy, i.e former everything Cole struts right into the picture My first thought was, No Don t look at him but alas Ms Fox is swept up in those dazzling eyes and charming smile and she is, as the author notes, falling down the rabbit hole I can see through his charm, and I can see how controlling Cole, who supposedly has been thinking of our girl since they split, is when he grabs Allison Despite this I found myself getting manipulated by his smooth words and handsome features I wanted to believe, just like Allison that he was different and longed for only her.Cole is dominating in every sense of the word and Allison gets weak in the knees just by the mere thought of his touch I get it, he s that rebel with a heart of gold that I love so much, isn t he I won t give away the ending but Allison and I were both deceived I also have to say that I was completely and utterly thrown by the steamy BDSM undertones and the unexpected menage that occurs I will not name those involved but one minute you are wrapped up in knots with Allison and suddenly a naughty proposal slides off Cole s lips that literally makes you go back and read it again Did he really just say invite a stranger up here I was all a buzz with that idea and let me tell you, this author does NOT disappoint in the sexual scenes Too muchwill again spoil, so be sure you are alone in a locked room before reading As tied up as I was with the scene, I also started to realize that Cole was not what he appeared It started as a little seed of doubt and by the end of the story it was a full bloom deception I am happy to report that the author gives us a very happy ending and I will look for future titles I would have liked just a little bitinsight to the way that Cole acted and a littlefight to Allison as she seemed a lot stronger Overall, I really enjoyed Normandie Alleman and award Venetian Love Knots four stars
