Review:

Well that was pretty good!
This is the final installment in this four part story.
Connie has realized her mistake in having an affair and is trying to make it up to Cliff. But with her enemies armed with information and their own agenda, Connie is going to have a harder time than she realizes trying to redeem herself.

A great ending, closure and some fun twists. I liked how Mellors’s character turned out, especially how Connie finally compares him to Cliff, and how we saw more of Cliff and Connie together. I think Connie became more of a full person for me in this last installment. And Cliff really took responsibility for his actions, making him the most sympathetic and likeable character in the book. Ivy is evil as ever, making her a great villain, and the ending left me satisfied.

I would recommend it to friends who enjoy erotica and retellings. The passion is hot and I really liked how the story ended.

Review:

After book two’s cliffhanger, we are back with Connie and Cliff.
I’m not going to give anything away, but wow.
Things are getting good.

Connie is having some serious guilt issues, but like a junky, she can’t stay away from her drug. Cliff is clueless, but devoted and trying to find a way to make it work at all costs. He is finally seeing that things may not be as great as they once were, and Cliff’s love for Connie makes me like him even more.

Am I a fan of Connie? Nope. But she’s more of a sympathetic character by now, and the last line in the book makes me think I’ll feel a lot warmer towards her in the next installment.

Ivy is having her own adventures with the enemy and I find her encounters to be even more sexy than Mellors and Connie.
The writing is still well done, the scenes steamy. And in my opinion, at least Ivy and Tommy have personalities. They may not be nice people, but they’re far more interesting to me than Connie and Mellors.

Also, perhaps if the four installments were read as one book, the drag of book two may not have been noticeable at all.


Overall, things are heating up! I can’t wait to see what happens!

Review:

We continue on Connie Chatterley’s adventure. To choose between her loving yet absent boyfriend Cliff or her hot as hell hunk Mellors, Connie’s guilt nags on her.
But that doesn’t stop her from resisting Mellors’s pull to her.

The story moves along slowly in this second installment.
Again, I don’t feel a great interest in Connie or Mellors as people. They’re more like sexual beings who have very little back story. And the history that is given doesn’t seem to  but the sex scenes are hot enough that I forget about it! 

Cliff pushes a little bit more center stage in this story, showing what a strange love triangle there is. Cliff isn’t abusive, or hurtful or evil. It’s easy to see how Connie is having a hard time giving up either men. Though still, Cliff is more of a human being than Mellors at this point. You know, human being vs. man candy.


So when Cliff invites Mellors to his and Connie’s home, to help them train and get in better shape, Connie is thrown for a loop when Mellors accepts!
Between guilt and lust, Connie isn’t sure where to go from here.

While not a lot happens in the book, it’s still a fun, sexy story that kept me wanting to read more. And the cliffhanger ending- well, that just propelled me into reading book three!
