From the hottest writers in Australia comes a scintillating new series. Enter the world of Sydney’s elite, and find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country…
Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?
Nella is one hundred percent in control of her life – all aspects of her life. She excels at knowing what everyone needs, and in meeting those needs.
So when it comes to her husband, Michael, and his deepest desires and most fundamental requirements, she is committed, creative, and unswerving in her responsibilities. A strong man needs a strong woman, and Nella’s love is as strong as steel.
The third of today’s Housewives is Nella. This naughty little tale is brought to us from the pen of Cathleen Ross.
A small note: this is probably the most out-there of the Housewives stories I have read to date. Now, I absolutely loved it, but I can definitely see that some of y’all are going to get a bit of a shock!
That being said…. READ IT ANYWAY! It’s great.
So, here’s what I have to say about Nella:
Nella may be the partner of a captain of industry, but she’s no wilting flower. No, Nella takes no back seat. I loved the dynamic that exists between Nella and Michael. Each gives and takes from the other, and while some of their more “private” activities might suggest otherwise, there is no power imbalance in this relationship. The way in which Cathleen has crafted their story, it is so easy to sense the love and respect that they have for one another.
F*@k me, is this a hot book or what? The sex scenes are full-on, balls-to-the-humbler hot – dark and emotionally charged. While they could be a little uncomfortable for some, I loved how Cathleen wrote these moments. They suit the tone of the book, and of the series, and never veer towards being gratuitous or false.
The series is yet to hit a speed bump for me, and Nella’s story is an incredible addition to it!
P.S. I’ve just noticed that this is my 400th post! And what a book to mark it with….
