Opening her eyes again as Miguel continued to kiss her neck and shoulders with a warm, insistent mouth, she saw Gabriel had leaned forward a little, into the light, watching her, her reactions, the suggestion of her nakedness before him.

This story is engaging from the start. Good plot with sex in every chapter!

If I had to describe Embedded in one word it would be ‘unique’. This story is so unique that perhaps the blurb did not prepare me for all that I was getting. First let me say that Embedded is more than sizzling. Ms. Sinna’s ability to write erotica is off the charts, not because of graphic content or being overly taboo, but for pure creativity. This is not a cliché story of part A lining up with part B. The erotic scenarios are refreshing and original. This story is extremely sensual and erotic with a lot of fantasy play. The author writes many attractive characters, but she excels at writing a mysterious hero that captures the reader’s attention from first introduction. The tricky part is, because Ms. Sinna evokes such a rich storyline with so many intriguing characters, trying to determine who it is we truly want our heroine to end up with (I will leave you guessing so you can discover the true hero for yourself). Beyond the sexual, the character dialogue was also quite different. Rather then surrounding sex with loose on goings of the outside word, Embedded holds a worldly flavor tinged with sophistication and politics. There is an intricate plot and then several subplots that keep the reader guessing. There is a lot of description, so if that is your thing you will love Ms. Sinna’s beautiful, sometimes breathtaking, use of words.

Through this complex plot filled with many characters and on going sexually charged predicaments, I found myself coming to admire the free spirit of Stephanie (the heroine). The reader follows Stephanie’s adventure and in doing so, experiences the unpredictable journey of an unabashed, modern day, female double o’seven. It is a bit jarring at first. It is not a typical dynamic I am used to reading. Embedded took me somewhere I have never been, to a world where there is no status quo or double standard for a girl who is prepared to take what she wants. Once I came to terms with WHO the character actually was rather than what I expected her to be, I could not put the book down!

Embedded includes many of the ingredients that make this book a fun read for all sorts of erotica fans. There is naughty behavior, clandestine affairs, dangerous liaisons, bondage, exhibitionism, and much voyeurism. Simone Sinna is definitely an author for readers of a specific taste who are looking for something new and different. Her writing has an unpredictable flow that fills you with anxiety and wonder as to IF there actually will be a HEA. While this may not be a traditional love story it is no less sexy and enchanting. I give her a five for her original story telling ability! I can’t wait to go where Simone Sinna takes us next!

Excerpt

ADULT EXCERPT

 

Gabriel let out a noise of exasperation. ‘Woman, you really are the most impossible person I have ever met.’ He took a step closer, close enough to remind her of the passion that flared up whenever he was around, destined, it seemed, to keep her tense with desire. She could feel and smell him, but he didn’t touch her. She looked into his eyes and tried to make sense of the thoughts they hid.

‘So,’ she said softly. ‘What do you intend to do about it?’

The words hung and fell between them.

Gabriel crushed her to his chest, his mouth covering hers, his lips and tongue hot and insistent with desire, and hers responding in kind, knowing this time that he would not break off.

All her senses became hyperacute. His taste lingered on her tongue as he moaned and leaned to kiss her neck, her ears, his tongue circling and caressing. All that mattered was the exquisite tingling of her body, the increasing need for him as his hands massaged her buttocks, drawing her to him so that she seemed to mould and they became one. Together, frantically they tore at each other’s buttons then he at her bra until both were topless, her naked breasts relishing the roughness of his lightly haired chest.

Gabriel picked her up in his arms and carried her upstairs, kicking the door open to his room to deposit her unceremoniously on the large red-and-gold bed. Her eyes were only for him, drinking in his broad shoulders, the hint of muscle earned years earlier in his arms. He likewise paused, standing over her, drinking in her small, pert breasts and their pink areolas, her slender waist and hips. He knelt down beside her, taking one nipple in his mouth, sucking and licking as she moaned in delight, aware with each suck of her juices seeping such that she could no longer stop her hips rocking expectantly.

‘Are you sure this is what you want?’ he whispered, but all she could do in response was to draw him closer and kiss him again.

Gabriel pulled himself back, and eased down her jeans until she lay there in her black lace thong.

‘So what is it you like?’ he teased, sitting next to her, his hand gently tickling her inner thigh then withdrawing just as he got close to her most intimate yet hidden delight.

‘Mmm...that certainly,’ moaned Stephanie. ‘Only don’t stop.’

This time his hand brushed over the lips of her sex, still protected by the thong, which she was certain he would know was soaked. Her hips flexed involuntarily.

‘Patience, patience.’ Gabriel smiled as he eased his own jeans and briefs down, revealing an erect cock. Yet he seemed in no hurry, his fingers touching her inner thighs and groin so softly that it sent shivers of anticipation, escalating her hunger. Finally, when she thought she could bear it no more, he pulled down her panties in what seemed like slow motion; as she was revealed to him her excitement crescendoed so that she tried to pull him down to her.

With one hand, he pinned both hers above her head. He kneeled between her thighs, his legs pushing hers apart. The strength of him took her breath away. She felt totally in his power. He leaned into her, his tongue in her ear, whispering to her that she wasn’t going anywhere until he had had her, that for the moment she was his.

Stephanie gave in to the fantasy, swept along with the physical power he had over her, but more to the knowledge that he wanted her as much as she did him. All that mattered in this moment was the coming together, the joining to release tension that was going to explode within her. She felt safe in the knowledge of their mutual desire and let herself go as she never had before, moving into a space where fantasy and reality were one. Her whole body tingled, her hips took on a life of their own, thrusting up to rub against the hardness of his cock, anticipating the delight of its entry.

Still Gabriel held off, the experienced lover who knew to hold her to the last moment; and just at that second it seemed he never would, he entered her, hard and decisive. Stephanie moaned as he thrust inside her, her own needs escalated rather than being satisfied, her muscles holding and working him, selfish in their need to be pleasured and at the same time thrilling in the response they gave Gabriel, adding to his groans and thrusting.
