Reviewed at Library of LightsDate reviewed 27 April 2011Review link s organized crime sexy passion and strong characters in Desire and Deception by Sharon Buchbinder This is my ind of literotica and I absolutely adored Ms Buchbinder s work Desire and Deception is definitely a eeper and I wouldn t mind reading it over and over again when I m in the mood for some sizzling romanceI find myself b 3 12 starsWhile on a working vacation Dr Sarah Wright Rosen and her husband Dan make the gruesome discovery of Sarah s boss Bobbi s body Distraught over the discovery Sarah is determined to prove that Bobbi did not die while riding drunk on a jet ski as the official ruling states but that foul play was involved Dan is not thrilled with Sarah s determination He is busy with his own problems at the hospital where he is a doctor and can t be bothered to help with the investigation Back at her job teaching at Balti Metropolitan University Sarah pursues her investigation all the while dealing with her problems getting pregnant and leaning on her best friend and fellow teacher Izzy Ramirez Izzy Ramirez has an agenda of her own sexy and irreverent she is the daughter of a South American mafia boss mother of three children has an active sex life with her husband and a boy toy grad student on the side What Izzy wants Izzy gets and no one stands in her way not her husband best friend father children or loverSarah and Izzy s worlds collide taking them both in directions that neither would have anticipated and leading them into paths far from what they are comfortable with Desire and Deception is a mystery wrapped in erotica all the while dealing with the everyday hopes dreams and problems of two women who are friends but different as black and white Sarah is strong in her beliefs of right and wrong a bit wimpy when it comes to her life with Dan and na ve beyond belief Izzy has no beliefs in right and wrong to her it s simple she is what is most important and will do whatever it takes to make sure everyone around her is on board with that thought Sarah s husband is at times overbearing and arrogant at other times loving and supportive hard to get to now and even harder to like Izzy s husband is your typical Latin lover sexy and strong except when it comes to dealing with Izzy also hard to get to Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey know and hard to like There are a number of supporting cast of characters we don t get tonow much about them other than how they relate to our two heroines The story moves in and out of the mystery of Bobbi s death Dan and Sarah s lives Izzy and Tomas lives and a few side trips to the seedy world of human trafficking While the blurb for this book says it s a mystery and sort of discovery of themselves for Sarah and Izzy make no mistake Desire and Deception is thinly disguised erotica There are many different plot lines going on at one time too many to try to eep up with and you tend to just get lost in the business of it all There is no mention in any of the blurbs that you are about to read a book that is heavy on the erotica this is uickly discovered not 3 or 4 pages into the book with an extremely graphic sex scene Don t get me wrong I read and enjoy erotica I just didn t now that sex scene Don t get me wrong I read and enjoy erotica I just didn t ЯED know that what I was about to read I suppose you cannot technically call this erotica there is a plot line and an attempt at getting tonow the characters outside of the bed There was a decent mystery going on with Bobbi s death but there was so much else going on to get into it and just when you seemed to be settling down to the story there would be a random sex scene thrown in I actually had to put this book down twice and walk away to read something else because I was just so overwhelmed with all that was going on I couldn t get into the rhythm of it I think two decent books could have come out of this one erotica one a suspense of this one erotica one a suspense but trying to combine the two just didn t work for me If you enjoy some steamy erotica this is the book for youMember of the "Paranormal Romance Guild Review Team
