4.5 STARS: "Maximiliano D’Alesandro is reeling from the suicide of his best friend and there is only one person to blame, the wife who led him to his death, Ella Williams. Looks can be deceiving though, as Max begins to realize there is more to his friend’s death than what he thought. Ella is not to blame and his guilt for the harsh accusations he made towards her has him wanting to protect her, if only she could see him the way he needed as a Dom. I thought this was the best so far of the Guilty Pleasure series. The story tugs at you emotionally as you grieve with both Max and Ella, but as they begin to discover something special between them it becomes magical. A wonderfully written story that will become a favorite for fans of Jan Bowles." -- Emily, Sensual Reads
4 STARS: "Love Slave to a Sicilian Billionaire is book 4 in Jan Bowles Guilty Pleasures series, I haven't read books 1, 2 or 3 yet and was not lost. From what I can tell they not are connected in any way, other than they are about the BDSM lifestyle. Ella is newly widowed and having an incredibly hard time dealing with the death of her husband, Kirk. Secrets and lies have come to light since his death adding to her devastation. Everything hitting her all at once throws her into a course of self-destruction and despair. Ella feels lost, she wants a man to take control of her and her life, she's always been interested in the BDSM lifestyle and knows that Max is a DOM. But he won't have anything to do with her because he blames her for her husband's death. Max has been restless with his subs and realizes he wants something stronger, a D/s relationship where he owns his subs heart, body and SOUL. When Max finds out things were not as he thought, he stops fighting his attraction and need to help Ella. He realizes with patience and love Ella could be the ONE. But will he be able to pull her out of the despair and destructive path she is on. Love Slave to the Sicilian Billionaire takes us on Ella's journey from a widow in despair to a woman confident with her sexuality and a submissive who has learned exactly how much pleasure a loving DOM can give. Max is a loving, but stern DOM who was exactly what Ella needed in her life. Max is a sensual lover and even when doling out Ella's punishment you can see his care and love for her. I liked that Max told Ella he had to know a woman intimately before they explored a D/s relationship or played in his playroom, that being said, I did feel like they went from intimate to the playroom a little quicker than I expected. Overall Love Slave to the Sicilian Billionaire is an enjoyable, steamy read. There were some definite make me hot moments where I went "OH I WANT MAX!!" One in particular is when Max tells Ella "this is your sexual journey, not mine. I'm just the facilitator for your fantasies." (yes I swooned)" -- DiDi, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4 HEARTS: "Ella Williams has just buried her husband and can't really understand how this happened. Why did he do the things he did? And now she must talk to someone about him and the choices he made. But the only person she can talk to is her husband's best friend and he wants nothing to do with her. Max must know decide if he is going rescue her from herself or is it too late for that? Max is a Dom and he thinks that Ella can be a natural submissive and wants to show all the pleasure he can give her, if only she will listen to him that he knows what's best for her. This was a very enjoyable read. I will warn you though, there are times this book will hit you with the emotion... The author does a wonderful job of describing the characters' surroundings in very vivid detail. The beginning and middle of the book have a great set up and you want to know what is going to happen next. It is sexy, hot, sizzling, and erotic. Those are just a few of the words that I would use to describe this book. This is book four in this series by Jan Bowles and i have read them all and was not disappointed. I can't wait to see if a next book is coming from this author." -- Camilla Berg, The Romance Studio
4 STARS: "The events after Kirk Williams dies will forever change the way his wife Ella and best friend Maximiliano D'Alesandro will view life and each other. Ella and Max noticed immediately that something was wrong with Kirk after his last tour in Afghanistan. Max took it upon himself to follow Ella, coming to the conclusion that she was cheating on her husband. Ella believes that the post traumatic stress brought on from war and the lack of the military treatment for soldiers caused the events that led to Kirk's death. It isn't until months later that the events come to light and Ella has to find her way with the help of the very Dominant Max. There were a lot of twists and turns in Love Slave to the Sicilian Billionaire, the 4th book of the Guilty Pleasure series, that will make you sad, bring a smile to your face, and satisfy your many BDSM desires. Ella's world has turned upside down, and she finds that everything she knew was a lie, which takes an emotional toll on her and those around her. Max has always had feelings for Ella, but out of respect of his best friend he squashed those feelings. I appreciated that the chemistry between Ella and Max wasn't instant but built over time as both parties grieved for Kirk in their own way...The use of a character that is deceased and is only accessible from memories and emails works very well and kept me interested. I really enjoyed this story with all of its emotional roller coasters." -- L.T. Blue, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
