Lessons on Seduction by Estelle Pettersen is a passionate, erotic romance novel that will fully satisfy the appetites of the fans of this genre. Julian Carpenter Richland is a university professor focused on studying and researching archaeology. He’s extremely committed to his job and area of study but lives a second-secret lifestyle filled with dangerous affairs and lustful encounters. On the other side of the spectrum is Sapphire Blake, a conservative woman and a people-pleaser yearning to feel much more than her religion allows. When these two personalities clash, a new world of romance and passion will be discovered. Still, past mistakes may taint and endanger what initially seemed to be an exciting, daring, and loving relationship.
The story is told from two perspectives: Julian’s and Sapphire’s. This choice allowed the author to present a complete picture of their romantic relationship and how their connection slowly developed and, with time, turned into so much more than they could expect or wish. As a result, the narration is immersive, and the reader can thoroughly blend into the story and understand the perspectives of each character. Julian and Sapphire’s relationship begins as a playful thing that unexpectedly evolves into something more; their chemistry overflows each page and lets the reader get excited to see where everything leads. There’s romance, love, passion, and lust. Still, there’s also an unexpected layer of destructive and unkind realms that gives the story a level of tension that takes its complexity to another level.
One quickly flies through this book; it’s simply one of those you want to finish in one sitting to fully capture its essence, allowing you to get the best experience possible. The storyline is well-developed, and it covers many areas of the relationship that is portrayed. There are also a few time jumps, a successful strategy that feels believable and lets the reader get a fuller timeline of said relationship. Julian is described from the beginning as an expert on seduction. As a professor, he makes it his challenge to instruct his newest interest, Sapphire, on everything one can learn about what can go behind closed doors between two people who find each other irresistible. Soon the romance develops, making their relationship more captivating.
