Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: Approximately 342 Pages
SATIN PLEASURES by KAREN DOCTER is the story of Dan and Tess. A year ago, Dan almost died. His life was consumed with getting ahead in a stressful position of power, money and a woman that cared more about her career than him. He walked away from everything to live a more peaceful and stress-free life.
Tess is a career woman, driven by ghosts from the past. She is obsessed with obtaining a promotion to the point of ignoring her basic needs such as eating, sleeping and any personal life whatsoever. And then one fateful day, she meets Dan stuck on a bridge in a traffic jam in a way that had me smiling.
I really enjoyed SATIN PLEASURES by KAREN DOCTER. The characters are strong, yet both flawed in their own ways, each having a very strong opinion on the opposite side of the spectrum about how people should live their lives. The heat Ms. Docter created between the two and the love and insight they each had to offer makes the reader root for a coming together of the two vastly different worlds they are living in. The storyline in this book is very believable, and I enjoyed the struggles of these two characters coming together and trying to find a place to meet safely in the middle.
