For Sage, attending the Parisian sex club, Plaisirs Sombres, was the ultimate fantasy. So when the conservative gallery assistant is cloaked behind a velvet mask, she never expects to be the object of the club owner's desire. Spurred on by artist D. S. Gregoire's erotic and sensual brush strokes of the exclusive club, she gives into a brief liaison with a mysterious masked man that leaves her breathless and wanting.

For Damien, known to the art world as D. S. Gregoire, his art has always been an adrenaline rush. But when an exotic and mysteriously uninhibited "sex club virgin" enters his establishment, he is willing to break his club rules for another taste of the dark pleasures she brings him...

Is it possible to find the love of your life in one night? Is it possible to lose your heart in that same amount of time? It could be, but you need to read Brushstrokes.

Jax Cassidy writes a HOT story. From page one, you will squirm. The storyline is fun and a little dark, but totally worth the read. I like the idea of a woman going for what she wants. The sumptuous world of the sex club Dark Pleasures is a draw in and of itself. You feel like you are there.

Damien likes to break the rules and when he does, you will want so much more. He’s an artist in the bedroom and on the canvas. Sage, while a whiz in the gallery, is new to the world of exclusive sex clubs. The mix of Sage and Damien is anything but soft and smooth. But you won’t want it any other way.

Although I thought the story happened rather quickly, you know from the outset that the physical union will be swift. I wanted to see a tad more development. There is a connection, but I wanted to know why it happens at such a brisk pace. In addition, there are a few minor editing issues that can bog the reader down and take away from the sizzling nature of the story.

If you want a story that will make you squirm, sigh, and might even singe your screen, then you need to read Brushstrokes. I give this story 4 cherries.
