Review: State of Ecstasy
State of Ecstasy by Ju Ephraime
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Daphne Cohen has had very few men in her life and they keep disappointing her including Michael, who she catches cheating on her. Deciding she needed to get away, Daphne leaves everything behind to go to the beautiful island of Martinique for a month. While there and relaxing at the beach early one morning, she sees a handsome and intriguing man, Wolfe LaCasse skinny dipping in the ocean. As the story progresses, you see Wolfe and Daphne have both been burnt by love and those past experiences have caused them to proceed with caution. The sex between the two will have you gasping and needing a partner as it leaves you breathless. As the time draws near for Daphne to return to America, she realizes she does love Wolfe but she doesn’t think she is ready to leave her life and career behind to live in Martinique with him. Wolfe on the other hand does not want a long distance relationship. Will the two survive? Who would be willing to give it all up to move to another country? Will either of them find their happily ever after?
The author does a phenomenal job of developing Daphne and Wolfe’s character. There are moments that you will love them and other times hate them for their stubbornness. This story is perfect for those who truly love romance novels with an extra edge of spice to them. The sex scenes are explicit and raw. The author also does a great job of bringing the readers in to the customs of the island in order to make a great storyline.
