Review for Claiming Magique by Tina Donahue

Title: Claiming Magique: 1 (Appointment with Pleasure)
Author: Tina Donahue

Description: Book one in the Appointment with Pleasure series.
A man at the center of power. A woman who won’t be ruled. They call her Magique…

Sought out by the District’s elite, she’s no ordinary call girl, deciding who will pleasure her for the evening. Her preference is for several men at once. Games of bondage and submission heighten her desire to be taken by a strong male.

Hunter is only looking for a good time, not a woman who unleashes a hunger so deep it changes his world. He won’t stop until Magique is his alone. He’s a prisoner of his lust, powerless against his growing need for her body and heart.

With this man, resistance isn’t allowed. For this woman, he’ll create a world of sensual delight and yearning like none she’s ever known.

Reader Advisory: Magique’s journey includes brief ménage and BDSM elements.

My Thoughts: Hunter and his friends get a night with Magique! She isn't your average call girl. As a matter of fact she only does it with two to three people. Once hunter sees her he knows he must have her for his own and not just because of the hot sex but he felt an instant connection. However, she is not a one on one girl.. Magique feels it too, but fights it because of her past and not wanting to feel the way she had back then. She knows that at least now she can control her pleasure and feelings. Now, only if the persistent Hunter would get the clue before he starts breaking down all the walls she has so carefully built up.

Ohhhh, Donahue you did indeed give me my smut factor. New to your books I will say I am definitely going to check out others by you. We get about ten pages in when the steaminess of this book kicks in. Magique sizes up the guys and knows what she wants.  Heck, she even made me want to be tied to the bedpost with three willing guys to give me pleasure. I found that even though there was hot sex, there was also a storyline you could vibe with. Hunter just sounded like the oh so sexy alpha leading male character who knows how to give pleasure. He knows how to love them and leave them.  Okay, maybe not that harsh, after all him and the ladies did have an understanding, but Magique brings him to his knees from the start and he always gets what he wants. Magique is a woman who knows what she wants in pleasure and isn't afraid to get it. Hurt her whole life she likes to have control and when Hunter starts breaking her walls down from the start she vows never to see him again.  Surely, if there was ever a guy to make her fall he would be it. Magique is very sexual sure but she is also a strong willed, smart and underneath it all a vulnerable woman who has finally met her match. The passion between them is so hot it sizzles. You wind up rooting for the best outcome in the end. Donahue gives us a story with leading characters to enjoy, and some hot sex. I giggled in a few instances and loved watching love grow. I really enjoyed this book and find it a good edition to Elora Caves published works.
