Review: The Devil’s Touch (Erotic Romance) by Vivien Sparx


Lucien Lance – a ruthless, relentless corporate raider. A man known for his single minded determination and his uncompromising thirst for money and power. A man so fearsome they had a name for him on Wall Street. 
When young Angelica meets Lucien at a business function she quickly discovers just how dangerous and sexy Lucien is, as he seduces her into an erotic world of dominance and submission using a mysterious pleasure technique called the ‘Devil’s Touch’.
But Lucien’s hunger for wealth and control comes with a cost… and Angelica must decide how much she is willing to risk to earn the chance of love. 
A story of approx. 42,000 words

I really tried to like this book.  I heard some great things about it, so I gave it a try.  It was very similar to Pretty Woman, if Richard Gere was a bit of a Dom.  Angelica is not a prostitute in this story, but she does proposition Lucien for sex, so it’s pretty close.  Lucien is just like Richard Gere’s character in Pretty Woman-ruthless, taking big corporations and breaking them down, expensive penthouse, limo driver, card that he gives Angelica to use for shopping, etc.

Again, I really tried to like this book.  But, it just didn’t do anything for me.  If you want to read a very similar story to Pretty Woman, by all means, please read this book.  But to me, the characters were not very well developed.  I had a hard time staying with this book until the end.

There were a couple of steamy areas.

I give this a 2 out of 5.
