Passion's Fury by Julie Shelton

Passion's Fury by Julie Shelton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After reading Passion’s Dream, I was really looking forward to Passion’s Fury. The idea of a ménage with the super-hot Rafferty triplets was almost too good to be true. While enjoyable, it wasn’t quite what I had hoped for. Despite the fact that the Doms of Passion Lake are known to be quite decisive and are not foot-draggers when it comes to claiming their subs, the speed with which Caleb, Ash, and Simon jumped into a relationship with Kylie was bordering on supersonic. That declarations of love were being made within 48 hours was a bit unrealistic, even if all involved kept commenting on how quick things were moving.

But setting aside the warp-speed insta-love, Passion’s Fury was an enjoyable read for the most part. I found Kylie’s flight response after her life blew up around her realistic, especially the way she automatically picked up her purse, laptop bag, and cell phone on her way out the door – the inclusion of a habitual muscle memory during a state of shock was rather fascinating. Fortunately for Kylie, the implosion of her life and her car breaking down where it did was probably the best things that could have happened to her because otherwise she would have never met the Rafferty triplets. Not only did the men do a stellar job of introducing her to the marvels of endless organisms and ménage sex, but their military backgrounds were the only thing standing between her and an extremely painful death.

As usual, Ms. Shelton brought all of her writing talents to the table when creating the extremely erotic sex scenes. But as with the declarations of love, I felt the progression of the sexual acts were a bit accelerated when taking into consideration that Kylie had lost her virginity just a few months earlier and had only had sex three times with one partner in that time. To take what is practically a 28 year-old virgin and introduce her to anal sex, double penetration, and BDSM within in a week’s time just seemed unrealistic. Did it keep me from enjoying the sex scenes? Uh…no, because Ms. Shelton writes good sex. But readers who take issue with insta-love will likely want to avoid the book. Surprisingly, the part of the book I enjoyed the most was watching the Rafferty men in action when the situation called for it. Their military backgrounds and connections made the retrieval mission quite exciting and made the book more enjoyable for me. Even though I didn’t enjoy Passion’s Fury as much as I had hoped to, I am looking forward to the next book in the series as I find the community and residents of Passion Lake to be quite interesting.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
