The Ninety Days of Genevieve

Eries of increasingly kinky and exotic fantasies Thrown into a world of sexual misadventure Genevieve learns how to balance her high pressure career with the twilight world of decaden. Let me start by saying that this book is an Erotica and a strictly 18 readThe story is of Genevieve a successful advertising rep who is trying to poach James Sinclair s empire as a client Sinclair who has a reputation of using people for his own benefit puts forth a proposal for Genevieve stating that she be his sexual submissive for a period of ninety days and in return his firm will earn his clientele Genevieve a woman driven by her career accepts the offer and thus the story ahead unfoldsIt is a great thing to note that this book has been published in the 1990s but in no way seemed outdated to me except for a few tells such as the use of phones and other tech in the background of the story It also appeared that a good lot of the internationally acclaimed erotica 50 Shades of Grey has taken some inspiration from it I absolutely loved Sinclair s character he s dark mysterious authoritative and charming I loved Genevieve s character in the beginning too till she started romanticising Sinclair and his actions Speaking of this potential spoiler warning the one thing I did not like about the storyline was the romance arc it ended towards For once I wish an erotica would just be an erotica And even if it moves to romance it should feel like a natural transition Also for a change I d like to read an erotic fiction where the women is the strong point of the bookIt is a light hearted book A lot of the plot points in the book may not be acceptable to many The text is rougher than you d usually see in an erotic fiction On a personal note I have been a fan on the 50 shades series ever since I read it but this book was a whole other level So if I were to compare the two here is how it would go 90 days of Genevieve 50 shades of Grey butChristian Grey James Sinclair

90 days of decadence to win the deal of a lifetimeA ninety day sex contract wasn't exactly what Genevieve Loften had in mind when she began business negotiations with the arrogant and. Initial reaction I actually didn t realize this novel went back as far as it did for publishing and that it s actually a re pub but my biggest issue was how static the characters seemed despite some purportedly steamy scenes alongside problematic scenes that just made my skin crawl despite reading it from a distant eye It takes on the rather familiar premise or was this one of the titles that shaped that particular premise it s hard to tell of a woman who s at the beck and call of her supervisor sensually for 90 days As to how those following days goI think I d best leave that for the full review as well as my reactions because I m still meditating on how I feel about this Probably a 15 2 star read overall for me though not sure if I ll keep it at that yetFull reviewThe Ninety Days of Genevieve by Lucinda Carrington left me mostly with mixed emotions for a novel of its genre I wasn t familiar with this title before I saw it listed on Harleuin s line of reuests a while back nor did I realize this was a title that was published many years ago It might be credited with contributing to the workplace steamy alpha male boss meets submissive employee but the overarching narrative put a cold impression on me On one hand it doesn t waste time in showcasing the steam factor and I somewhat understood that Carrington was going for different fantasies and imagery in the text for erotic overt and undertones And that s not a bad thing different displays of imagery can be good I remember at one point Genevieve visualizing herself as a Dominant over her boss and saying That s progressive at least it s recognizing a woman can not only have active fantasies about sex but also have the willingness to take the lead Where there s a step forward in this novel however is accompanied by moments where it takes five steps back Way backThis novel lacks distinct characterization and personalities Mostly while reading this I felt like I was just wading through erotic image after image and boundary pushing scenarios without much heart or identity for the characters within I spare no hesitation in saying that I didn t like Genevieve she was incredibly judgmental especially of other women and oddly naive who didn t see that coming One example of her judgingIt was the first time Genevieve had actually watched women bodybuilders working out She was surprised to see that both of these women were conventionally attractive They had strong muscular bodies but their faces would not have looked out of place in a cosmetic advertisement As she watched them straining to lift weights that would have given some men problems she wondered why they wanted their bodies to look so unfeminineAt one point after this a guy shames the women whom Genevieve observes by calling them Lezzies supposed to be condescending towards lesbiansDudeas a person from an exercise science background and who has a general appreciation for the capabilities of the human body male or female and knowing from experience that not all people in this field do it just to look good for men or that exercising is unfeminine this is pretty darned ignorant and perpetuating antiuated harmful stereotypes which this narrative does than once in general Don t get me started on saying why using someone s anyone s sexual identity as a backhanded insult is abhorrent because I could rage for days Ugh It s not just the fact this was penned in the latter 1990s it s just crummy logic and showcasing to begin withBut then again it has a f f sex scene but part of me wondered how much of that was well playing to fantasy When I reached the point where Bridget the woman Genevieve was engaging says Playtime s overlet s go and find the men I had my answerI went back and forth through this novel between saying certain ideas were interesting but not expounded upon and others being complete turn offs And some of these ideas aren t bad it s just nothing was done with them and there wasn t a human or sensual connection just jaggedly presented scenes of varying uality one after the other The other scenes between with the problematic turns threw me out of the book for how shallow and inaccurate they were mostly through Genevieve s pampered and overly privileged lensIn the end while I m giving this 15 stars at the most I can t say I would recommend The Ninety Days of Genevieve too immature and lacking direction for my preference but maybe I need to read another book by Carrington to see what of her style is like I don t know We ll seeOverall score 155 starsNote I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Harleuin Mira
