A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

PLEASURE & PURPOSE by Megan Hart



PLEASURE AND PURPOSE by Megan Hart

I don't know if I'm in the right state of mind to do justice and give a reasonable review of this book. All I can think of to say is that if you read this book and judge it at face value, you will be missing out.


Right this moment having finished reading it about an hour ago I can hardly frame or find words.

It's three stories interwoven as one. It's told sequentially. It's about knowing and understanding oneself, being able to love oneself. It's about accepting love. It's about surrender.

It was a thrilling way to spend this morning. Wow!

I've been eyeballing this book - but am holding off to see how I can fit it into the budget. LOL

But I'm sure it's wonderful since it's Megan Hart. :P

I love Megan Hart, but I tend to not do well with "other-worldly" in my erotica. I like it two ways. Historical or contemporary. And yes, I realize I'm a stick in the mud - but I'm OK with that.

But damn, now I'm thinking I need this book. Shit. Like I need another book.

Megan Hart is definitely an author I have to be in the mood to read. I'm currently considering reading Stranger, cuz I'm curious about it and won it from her awhile back. I wasn't sure if I'd like Deeper so I haven't gotten it...yet. This one I saw at Dear Author and haven't decided...but maybe if you posted a review I could decide? *g*

I recently read Deeper, and LOVED it. After I finished it, I read the Pleasure and Purpose excerpts, and will definitely be reading it. Of course, maybe I should read Stranger and Dirty, first which are already on my tbr shelf. However, you know how I love that spec fiction stuff . . .

Something tells me I'll be picking up P and P really soon. lol

Ok, officially the most intriguing review I've read all week!

That cover is stunning. I've only read one Megan Hart book, and I made the mistake of going in to it thinking it was a romance. I ended up not really liking it for what it was, which was an erotic tale. I have another one of her's that I have to read.

Ames, reading what I wrote right after I finished reading it sounds so "out there" but I really do think this book needs to be read on a deeper level.

Wendy, while the "place" in the story could be called other worldly, it read more like a historical to me. Also, like a fable, sort of too.

Nathie! How did I miss you read your first MH? Which one????

Stacy, I liked STRANGER very much. The great thing about reading MH is that no two books are the same. For me, you recognize the voice and the thread of reality and honesty, but you never know where she's going to take you with it.

Renee, DIRTY and STRANGER are wonderful books. I connected with DIRTY in a very personal way because of my own upbringing, but I think they are both pretty powerful reads.

T, I was nervous about saying anything because when something connects in such a visceral way and you reveal it, you (at least I do!) very exposed.

Barbara, I think the colors and the lace are beautiful, but that breast looks a little weird, doesn't it?
