Book summary:

"He was used to power, used to getting his own way, used to being in control. Well, she thought, so am I. You want to play games, Mr. Sinclair? I'll play them with you.

When Genevieve Lofton began business negotiations with the arrogant and attractive James Sinclair, she never thought she would end up agreeing to a ninety-day sex contract with him. But James always gets what he wants--and he wants her to submit to his every desire. As Genevieve becomes the star performer in his increasingly erotic fantasies, she is drawn into a world of sexual adventure she never imagined...."

      Mr. Gray, you got served! According to Goodreads, The Ninety Days of Genevieve was first published in... 1996. I tried to check that out, but I didn't manage to find any details about 1996. edition. If this information is not correct, please let me know. But if it is - my mind was trying to figure out how old I was back than and what I was doing. My innocent self was happily making fool of herself while dancing to  Macarena , Where Do You Go and Un-Break My Heart or crying my eyes out after watching Jerry Maguire and sleeping in one bed with my four friends after Scream. And all that time I was completely unaware that out there were this whole different world of chains and whips and pain and pleasure.

     A lot of hotness, sugar-kink & one romantic dominant bastard. First thing, all of you who think that this book won't be your thing because it was written that long ago (note the sarcasm), do not worry - The Ninety Days of Genevieve has ageless feel and you will barely notice age gap between you and setting of the story. Genevieve is young, attractive and successful woman who finds herself in the middle of the lion's liar - Mr. Sinclair thinks that Genevieve needs to learn the lesson. So, we have classic plot twist - sexual agreement - by now predictable turn of events in this kind of novels. But this doesn't have to be a bad thing. It surely is not here - I couldn't go to sleep until I finished reading it (my sister woke up to get ready for work and I went to sleep).

      I shall do that damn striptease thing! My favorite thing about this book? Where to start? Relatable characters, absolutely captivating erotic atmosphere, great romance, amazing steamy scenes. You can even learn few things from this book - like how your sexual appeal comes from inside, from your confidence and attitude, at that moment when you finally let go and forget about your inhibitions. Or how there is no place for inhibitions between two people who are in love. Or that you should always tell him/her what you want - in the bedroom and outside of it.

      Fluffy romance. Only thing that I found a little bit over the top was love story. It is this whole knight in the shiny armor throws his fairy, kinky princess on his white horse and ride into the purple and pink sunset ending. But that is why The Ninety Days of Genevieve is sugar-kink.

      Who should read it? Fans of romantic stories with kinky twist, nothing too shocking or dark. Just your regular full blooded female fantasy. Imagine how On Dublin Street by Samantha Young would look like if  Braden was Dom. Dear gods of kink... I am sweating already!
