His Esclava

His Esclava - Jessica Ingro description


Chloe Valentine decides to leave everything behind to become a sex slave for Billionaire Eduardo Mendoza. When she arrives on his Island and discovers all may not be as Eduardo made it seem, she struggles to find her place in this new reality. That's until she lays eyes on Mateo. He is Eduardo's nephew and something tells Chloe he may be her salvation.

HOLY CRAP was this book dirty, nasty and kinky as F@ck. I enjoyed the hell out of it. The writing was great. You are sucked into the action and sex right from the beginning. This book moves FAST. A little too fast in my opinion (I'll get to that in a bit) The villain is delightfully nasty. Chloe was likable, but not the brightest bulb in the box. I wished she would have put up more of a fight, she just takes EVERYTHING lying down. Mateo (from the little we get of him) was also a likable guy.


So I enjoyed it for the most part, but it did have some issues. One, this is a very short book with A LOT crammed into it. Like I said the action and sex start off right at the beginning. I felt a little like I was thrown into the middle of a story. I would have liked a little more insight into WHY Chloe made the decision (a really stupid decision) and more of her correspondence with Eduardo prior to arriving on the Island.

Because the book was so short, we never really get a chance to KNOW Mateo. He REALLY needed to be more fully developed. I never felt a connection between him and Chloe because he popped in and out of the story never spending more than an hour tops with her. Most of it whilst she was being subjected to all sorts of degrading things. Am I supposed to buy into these two being in love after a couple short meetings? I also thought it wrapped up pretty easily. Not to mention I felt bad about the other esclava's...yeesh. *lol*

So even though I felt this one would have worked better as a full-length book allowing for more fleshing out of the characters and the plot, I still really enjoyed it, and it kept me riveted, so two thumbs up from yours truly.
