Eighty Days Amber (Eighty Days : Companion #1) by Vina Jackson

Eighty Days Amber  (Eighty Days : Companion #1) by Vina Jackson
This is an adult erotica romance. (Rated NC-17)
(Three and a Half Amber Hearts)
Book Summary
A companion book to the Eighty Days trilogy. I'd always liked bad boys. And as I grew up, they became bad men . . .

In her youth, Russian dancer Luba fell for a bad man; a handsome but dangerous rare amber dealer who would disappear for months on end but expect Luba to drop everything when he called. Despite everything Luba could not deny her attraction to the seductive Chey, but their passionate, turbulent relationship came to and end when Luba fled Russia having discovered a shocking secret about her lover.

From elite private clubs in New Orleans to the London mansion of an enigmatic rockstar, Viggo Franck, Luba embarks on a journey of self-discovery and embraces the exciting, enticing experiences her new life as a dancer brings. Her adventures introduce her to a fiery, flame-haired violinist, Summer, and Lauralynn, a woman with decidedly dark desires. But can this new life ever truly satisfy Luba, or will she forever crave the one man she knows isn't good for her.
My Review
Having felt somewhat cheated at the end of the Eighty Days series, I was happy to read the companion pieces. And we do get more of Summer and Dominik although not in starring roles.
I hadn’t remembered Luba very well from the original series. I remembered some things and had forgotten others like Viggo and how she fit there. This book kind of takes us from Luba’s beginnings to how she fit in the series. There is a lot in her life. And although it makes perfect sense, I didn’t find much after Chey very interesting. It just dragged for me for the most part. Although there were times like the private dancing I found interesting. And yeah, that ending, although it straddled the line of believability added a nice bang at the end.
However, Luba’s life was pretty sad and dull and it read that way. I’m not sure if anything could have been done to make it more interesting. I really rooted for Chey and wished he had more page time.
Anyway, as a huge fan of this series, I thought it important to read. I might have enjoyed better if I read right after the first three books. I still enjoy these authors. I have Eighty Shades White to read and will do so soon.
