Three Stages of Love: Attraction by TC Anthony
Release date: March 1, 2013
My rating: 3.75 stars
Evangeline Chase is in the darkest corner of life and struggling to find any light at all. A business woman, a daughter, and a friend, Eva is also a control freak who can’t be sexually satisfied and wants nothing to do with love…or used to.
That was before she was swept away in lust and love’s embrace while experiencing a total loss of control.
Alexander Mason is the knight Eva’s always wanted, yet the man she sacrificed because she couldn’t handle losing control over the chaos of emotions he caused in her.
Eva fears living a life scorned by her self-instigated loss. Left with a cavernous void that can only be fulfilled by the man who gave her the most erotic moments, euphoric orgasms, and touching love she has ever known, Eva is willing to do anything to give Alexander control of her, her love, and definitely her body.
But if Alexander returns hurt and shunned by Eva, will she willingly accept all of his conditions and rules, or will they battle in and out of the bedroom for control and ultimate fulfillment?
Three Stages of Love: Attraction is the exciting next entry into the erotic romance series; featuring a strong heroine, Three Stages of Love: Attraction explores the hesitation felt with losing control and the wonderful reward obtained by embracing the uncontrollable.
Bringing back the same palpitation-inducing romance that made Three Stages of Love: Lust an instant classic, this remarkable follow up novel uses its desires, insecurities, and explosively sexy scenes to draw readers into its erotic love story.
I am going to do this review a little different. My feelings on this book are very indifferent. I liked this book, but at the same time I didn’t like this book. So, I think I will just give you some of the thoughts that ran through my head throughout the book.
In the beginning, I was all for this story. Eva was spiraling out of control. She couldn’t eat. She couldn’t sleep. She was desperate to forget her pain. She was willing to do anything to get the pain out of her heart and mind. I was right with her. I saw the train wreck coming. I couldn’t wait for Alexander to sweep in and knock some sense in to her.
Once Anthony saved the day, there is the “agreement.” As always, I wanted to slap Eva. She accepts a relationship with Anthony on his terms, yet she still keeps running. Why? Why must she always run? Man, I wanted to smack her.
Enter good old, Los Angeles California in all of its glory. This is where the story started took a dive. I was losing interest, FAST! So now we are at the Gossip Girls/Real Housewives/Melrose Place drama. I really had to force myself through all of this. I wanted to smack multiple bitches, and I found myself becoming extremely disinterested in the story.
Eventually, the book redeemed itself. We were back on track. All was right with the world… Enter the scare. What scare? Well, I can’t tell you that. I am not a spoiler. I was back to hanging on every word. Here is also the point I now wanted to smack Anthony. Stupid men. I am shaking my head now thinking about this part of the book. But, as always, we have Eva taking off AGAIN! But to be honest, I was almost with her, but not quite. I think I would have pushed her into a wall or something for over reacting again.
Then I heard wedding bells. Everyone came together and all was good. Some issues were resolved, a wedding ensued without any drama… Everyone was happy. The one thing nagging me came to light. It came at the end, and I was left there holding my Kindle with my jaw on the floor. Now before this ending, I was still deciding whether or not I was looking forward to the next book in this series. The ending decided it. Hook, line and sinker. I am now anticipating the third book. Not sure when it will be out, but I will be looking for it.
