Sexual Awakenings was a naughty bit of fun. With deliciously entertaining descriptions and scenes of several kinky acts, it was hard not to squirm in my seat.

There are two things I’ve come to expect from an Angelica Chase book: major plot twists and smoking hot sex. This series has both those things – on steroids. Sexual Awakenings is comprised of four novellas: The Waltz, The Tango, The Last Dance, and Curtains.
After years of being ignored by her cheating husband, Violet’s finally had it. She decides she’s gone without sex long enough and gives herself a year to explore her sexuality. It will basically be a year-long no-holds-barred screw fest that she will indulge in without any self recrimination. I’m all for sisters doing it for themselves, and I applauded her determination to finally find pleasure. However, Violet meets Rhys and then goes from being a lonely housewife to an unrepressed nympho in a nanosecond. It’s a bit unrealistic but I went with it, and overall I’m glad I did.
On a scale from one to ten, the steam factor in this series is a twenty. Rhys and Violet have hot, wonderfully filthy sex constantly. It’s almost too much sex though, even for an erotic romance. Too much sex?! I know, I know. There’s no such thing, right? It’s just that the storyline is really strong, and at times the frequency of sex scenes detracts from it. I kind of grew tired of the phrases, “thick c@ck,” and “pretty pink p*$$y.” That said, I stand by my belief that there’s an art to writing a convincing and appealing sex scene, and Angelica Chase excels at it. This is an erotica lover’s wet dream.
I loved Violet and Rhys together, and I enjoyed their chemistry as well as the progression of their relationship. Violet is nobody’s pushover, and Rhys is incredibly likable. Violet’s mother is a real shining star in the story.
The series seems to get better and stronger with each subsequent book. There are so many startling revelations that I did not see coming at all. I’m glad I had all four novellas bundled into one collection because otherwise the cliffhangers would have killed me! The plot is intriguing and remarkably addictive. I
wish the narration was as strong as the story. The narrator's delivery is very emotionless and flat. Putting that aside, I recommend this one.
