Lick & Whipped by Lucia Jordan – A Double Review!

So I’m doing another two for one review set! I have read a few novels by Lucia Jordan before, as well as a few other authors who do their publishing set up that same way she does. This whole four part book set up is kind of different than most, but the first portion is always free, and then you can buy all four book to the story at normally a low rate. It gives you a nice free sample while getting sucked into the story and then you can get to choose if you really want to buy it or not.

Lick by Lucia Jordan

Purchased: Kindle – Free

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

What’s it all about:

Gina has been in a mentally abusive marriage for thirteen years, and now after escaping it she has to decide if she wants to jump back into the world of men or take it at her own pace.

The Best Parts:

From just this short portion of the book I really liked it. I loved the build up of the relationship between Gina and Landon. Even for just a few short pages you can see that they need each other, but that Landon is also hiding a while side to himself.

The Worst Parts:

I didn’t like the ending. I know if I had bought the whole set I wouldn’t be left with such a cliff hanger, but I hate that Landon isn’t the good guy that I wanted or that Gina needed. It doesn’t make me hate the book, but it makes me wonder if I really want to read another book about infidelity, and heartache.

Whipped by Lucia Jordan

Purchased: Kindle – Free

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

What It’s About:

Avery has always stayed in the lines when it came to her life, after raising her brother for the last ten years she didn’t have a choice. But with his impending graduation from college, Avery doesn’t know what to do with her life now. Cue in Burke Stone and her life turns upside down.

The Best Parts:

The brass nature of Burke’s and Avery’s relationship is fantastic to read. Granted this whole portion to the story is basically just sex it totally work. You learn so much about the characters within this time that I couldn’t help but fall in love with them. The story is unique that it is the man who is chasing after the woman and that he is the one constantly fighting for her.

The Worst Parts: 

I actually didn’t find anything that I didn’t like about this story. It is a BDSM novel, but I love that things are loosely explained and then solidified. It makes it all seem so real and not just some fantasy like some BDSM novels do.

Final Thoughts:

Between the two book I would rather read all of Whipped, than Lick. I think that these novels set up like this gives readers more of a chance to like and buy a book than think they like a book, buy it, then hate it. What is also great about these books is that the publisher will give you up to two free full copies of the books when you write a review for book one. That is something that is definitely new, but totally awesome as well. Such a great incentive to read more books by the author.
