Taking Care of Leah by Charlotte Howard, Book Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Delilahxx
Many thanks to Cara and Charlotte Howard for sending me this book (Taking Care of Leah by Charlotte Howard) to review. This is the first Charlotte Howard book that I’ve read but I don’t think it’ll be my last. Often with erotic books I find them a bit boring to read and find myself rushing through to find the erotic parts. But I didn’t have that problem at all with this book. I found it easy to read and the story held my interest, right to the end.
The story centres around Leah, who is a school teacher; and her relationship with Ty, a caretaker at the school. After some flirting they get it together at the end of the school year, and proceed to get to know each other better through the school holidays. During this time Leah realises there is a lot more to Ty and his life that she ever thought, and she needs to decide if she wants to stay with him.
Firstly she realises he is into BDSM, and he introduces her to that world and they explore together. Although she is a bit uncertain at first she does start to really enjoy it. And then a big secret is revealed. I won’t say what the secret is as I don’t want to spoil the story for others who want to read. But this is a big wake up call for Leah and she has to decide what she really wants.
I did enjoy reading Taking Care of Leah by Charlotte Howard… however there were nowhere near enough erotic scenes for me, and some of them were way too short. There was only one that really got me tingling, but at no time was I tempted to reach for a bullet. Which was quite disappointing for an erotic story.
Most of the characters were easy to relate to and understand for me, except for the 2 brothers involved in the secret. I couldn’t really relate to them at all and felt their characters needed to be explained more. Also, I thought that Ty and Leah’s relationship moved far too quickly. I think this was supposed to show how into each other they are but it just felt unbelievable to me.
The book was really easy to read and the story did draw me in, and I found myself reading some of the book each day, which doesn’t usually happen for me and erotic books. But by the end of the book I still wasn’t fully sure of what the actual secret was or why it was such a big deal. Maybe if I read it again it would make more sense. I also felt the ending was a bit abrupt and I was expecting more story before the ending.
Despite some disappointing aspects of this book, overall Taking Care of Leah by Charlotte Howard is a good read to pass a few hours. And I would recommend to others who like a good read with some erotica, but realising that the erotic parts do not make up the majority of the story.
