I love stories about married couples who have lost the spark in their sex life and try new and exciting things to get it back. The marriage diaries was a sizzling and sexy series featuring Dean and Jillian. A couple who have been together since high school and after seeing their two boys off to college and the military are about to discover fantasies about the other person that they never would have guessed they liked.
The Awakening - Introduces us to Jillian and Dean and from the beginning you can tell that Jillian has always wanted a spicier love life. She knows Dean is a wild man just waiting to be let loose and takes the initiative to surprise him at work with some sexy leingerie and an office fantasy. I really liked these two from the beginning of the story, You could really tell that this was a couple who was deeply in love with each other and wanted to please the other person. It was realy fun watching Jillian not only come out of her shell but bring Dean out of his albeit slowly but surely.
The Seduction - steps up the sexy as Dean takes the regns now that he knows Jillian is ready for a little more fun and becomes the dominant one in the bedroom. He's always had fantasies of what he wants to do to her but has always felt like it would be too much for her to handle. In this one they play with a little light bondage and heavy teasing and experiment with video chatting while seducing each other. It was fun watching them discover what the other person likes sexually speaking. I wa spulled into the story and felt as if I was experiecing their romance all over again along with them.
The Taking - was probably the most fun for me because this one was like an eortic game of hide and seek. Dean gives Jillian a commeand to hide on his way home from work and when he finds her he plans to ravish her right where she's been hiding. It was very steamy and hot to watch Dean be so authoritative with her and yet tame himself to a level where he wouldn't hurt her. This one was based on a fantasy of Jillian's of having a "Stranger" come into their home and force her into a pasisonate encounter. Wha I loved about this ishow safe Dean makes her feel despite the role playing they are doing. Of course no woman wants to be actually forced into something by a real stranger but the fantasy is sexy and alluring and I really enjoyed watching these two plah it out.
The Temptation - tackles a fantasy that Dean has always had. Watching Jillian with another man. Throughout the stories Dean has become increasingly dominant and showing a side to himself that JIllian always knew was in him but he tried to hide. He didn't know how she would feel about the things he wanted so he never expressed himself. So when Jillian sets up his fantasy for him and he watches as she gets close to another man he realizes his fantasy is better left in his imagination.
The Marriage Diaries series was very hot, extremely erotic and at times romantic. I really enjoyed getting to know this couple and watching them rekindle their love life and discover new things about the other person. There were a couple of times that the story would get a little cheesy especially when Dean started howling like a wolf when he came. Let's not forget my number one complaint when reading erotica...CUNT. I am sorry but I just don't like when that word is used as a descriptive for a vagina. It's an insult that I particularly enjoy using and does nothing to turn me on while reading a steamy scene. Dean using it a few times throughout wasn't enough to make me not like the books it just bugs me. That was my only complaint with this series. Overall these books were, I think, a great set for couples who want some sexy ideas for themselves or just a lonely gal like myself to store the info for later. I can't wait to see what the next installment holds for this couple!
“Even after you were gone, I couldn’t stop thinking about the bold way you walked into my office and sucked me off, how you so brazenly spread yourself on my desk for me to fuck. All afternoon, I had the smell of you on my fingers, and the taste of you in my mouth. When I should have been working, I was instead thinking about your waxed pussy and how incredible it felt, which made my dick hard at very inconvenient times.” -The Awakening
"You have the softest lips." he nuzzled her cheek, his breath hot and damp against her skin. "And the prettiest, most irresistable mouth that knows exactly how to drive me crazy with wanting you. I love the way you kiss me, and especially the way you suck my cock." - The Temptation
About The Author:
Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.
So, why the new pen name?
As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.
Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.
I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!
