18193698Title: War of Desire

Author: G. D. Campbell

Publication Date: July 3, 2013

Description (from Goodreads):

Raeleen Stewart enjoys nothing more than a new employee. And young Josh Carter is a spectacular addition. Her enterprise, a house of sexual pleasure for female clientele, thrives on fresh offerings. 

But Josh has an agenda and agrees to the job requirements only to further his role in a plot to destroy Rae and her despicable operation. 

Long-time pleasure partner and ex-lover Lu Haverson has his suspicions about this young buck, but there’s so much painful baggage with Rae, he can’t get her to reconsider. So he embarks on his own investigation after watching the kid struggle with taking women to bed. 

Will Rae learn the truth before it’s too late? Can Lu get the evidence he needs, or will his tangled past with Rae get in the way? Lives hang in the balance as Josh faces desperate choices between his life-long training and an unexpected world he never wanted to find. 

Set in the not too distant future when global warming has forced extreme social change, House of Rae is a fast-paced, sensual story of love, personal challenge, and discovery.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

What an intense read! War of Desire takes place a few decades in the future and most of what occurs could conceivably happen, which makes the story even more interesting.

I was a little confused at the beginning of the book about channeling energy and colors that Rae was seeing around Josh. It was eventually explained well, though.

The characters are complex. I couldn’t help but not like poor Josh and kept hoping that he’d come to his senses before he did something horrible. I didn’t know how I felt about Lu and Rae at first but, as the story progressed, I found that I liked both of them, although there were times I wanted to shake some sense into them!

Warning: There is a lot of explicit sex in War of Desire because it takes place in a house of pleasure (aka whorehouse for women).

If you like suspense, romance, erotica, and shedding a few tears, this is a must read. Available on Amazon.
