Review: La Amore di Vincenzo by Rosalind Scarlett

“The first time I laid eyes upon her, I was instantly mesmerized by her softness, her beauty. I knew at once that I was done for… never would I want another woman.”

Vincenzo was reasonably happy with his life. He had a stylish place to live and a job most other men would die for— having sex with multiple partners every night and servicing wealthy clients in the VIP, male and female alike. For years now, he had been one of the star performers at Sanguelascivia, a swanky erotic nightclub in Venice for the Vampire elite.
But then Giuliana wandered in to the club, a destitute young widow who had nowhere else to turn. She was nothing like the other women there at Sanguelascivia. Sure, many of them were gorgeous and naturally, he enjoyed fucking them, but none of them ever interested him in the least. Perhaps it was merely because Giuliana was not yet hardened by this lifestyle. She was beautiful in a soft and compassionate kind of way that he had not known in a long time.
Never had Vincenzo seen anyone quite like her.
And now, he could not seem to get her out of his mind.

Nor did he want to.
Vincenzo begins fantasizing about Giuliana during his every performance with the other women. Then he must agonizingly witness her initiation performance with two men. Will he be able to stand it, or will his emotion get the better of him?
Will they ever be scheduled to perform together so that he may know the pleasure of being with her? It is as if someone is determined to keep them apart…
But then something happens which forces Vincenzo to act quick, altering the course of both of their fates forever. He has to make the most difficult choice of his life— fleeing Sanguelascivia, and the woman he loves.
Will he ever see Giuliana again or will he go through eternity longing for the one woman who has ever touched his heart?

As you might already know (if not, I’m telling you again lol) Rosalind was the first one who opened my eyes to the Erotica genre. She was the one who made me see that Erotica is SOOO much more than porn for women. Granted, there are still a lot of bad erotica out there, but seriously, isn’t there in every genre. And truly, isn’t it just as much about what we like and dislike? Luckily we’re not all alike.

But I’m straying from the subject, which is this awesome short story Rosalind wrote. Have you read The Submission of Giuliana? Well, La Amore di Vincenzo is – partly – Submission of Giuliana, but from Vincenzo’s point of view. And let me tell you….it is just as hot and toe curling as Submission of Giuliana. And not only do we get to see Giuliana from Vincenzo’s POV, but we get to see what happens AFTER he leaves. And THAT is all I’m telling you about what happens in this book, because if I tell anymore it will spoil some delicious surprises.

I will however, tell you that it was AWESOME to read about Vincenzo and Giuliana again. Both were in the back of my mind when I closed Giuliana; what happened to them, would they meet again? And even though this story ends a little abrupt, it is still awesome. I am looking more and more forward to read the Anam Céile Chronicles so I can get more into this world.

And just like in her previous books, the sex scenes in Rosalind’s books are amazing to read. Filled with longing, sensuality, heat and need. Rosalind never fails to make me blush, make my toes curl and my heart beat faster. To me when reading erotica, it is so important that the sex stays off the crude path, and is more sensual without being downright porn. Rosalind masters this to a perfection every time.

"I write descriptive stories in lush settings overflowing with every emotion shared by the human experience: joy, hope, love, desire, longing, lust, jealousy, hunger, loathing, uncertainty, grief, and desperation, amongst others. As we can all relate to some, if not most of these, I delve into these matters of the heart and put them on naked display for you, the reader of my stories. At times you will find the aura of my stories is exceedingly beautiful, and other times, rather dark.

Whether it is my straight Erotica stories or my other books, I delight in writing a passionate sex scene, but do so in a manner which, though still deliciously explicit enough to stimulate your blood flow, is not in the least bit crude. I write the stories I always sought to read, yet could never seem to come across these days. My style of writing has been compared to Anne Rice, as well as classic female erotica writer Anaïs Nin."

Award Winning Author Rosalind Scarlett lives in Boulder, Colorado with her loving and supportive husband, two rambunctious little boys, her pampered kitty, Bella, her feisty canary, Limoncello and her proud bunny, Micah. She holds degrees in Psychology and Interior Design. Rosalind is zealously proud to be of Celtic ancestry.

When not immersed in her writings, Rosalind's passions are reading, listening to music, yoga, spiritual exploration, organic gardening and living, riding horses, transforming ugly, old houses to their former splendor, riding bicycles with her family, hiking, mountains, lush evergreen forests, foggy mornings, falling snow, feeding old bread to small critters and watching nature from her deck on crisp evenings with a glass of wine.
