An Introduction to Pleasure by Jess Michaels | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers An Introduction to Pleasure is the first book in Jess Michaels’ Mistress Matchmaker series.  I had read this when it first came out on ebook but then decided to read it again via audiobook.  Again, I was blown away!  There is something about the mistress in training trope that I absolutely love.  Of course, this is an erotic romance so that does help!

Pleasuring the Lady by Jess Michaels | Book Review + Interview

MY THOUGHTS Pleasuring the Lady is the second book in the Pleasure Wars Series.  We met Lady Portia in Taken by the Duke (my review) and Miles Weatherfield in An Introduction to Pleasure (Goodreads).  Initially, I thought Portia and Liam would pair off but it was not to be.  I was a little bit disappointed but after reading Pleasuring the Lady and reading how Miles and Portia fell in love, I changed my mind. I know now that Portia and Liam would not be a good match. The story starts after Ava has married Christian with Liam not talking to […]
