Overview

When the arrogant and incredibly attractive James Sinclair walks into Genevieve Loften’s office, she never expected to be presented with a 90-day sex contract. However, Genevieve is a career-driven woman who loves a challenge in negotiations.

Besides, James offers her an interesting deal that she can’t afford to miss out on. And maybe, just maybe, she doesn’t want to miss out on an adventure with him either.

She decides to play his dangerous game, knowing well that she can always stop if his demands become too much for her. What Genevieve doesn’t anticipate is that she will play the lead role in a series of increasingly naughty and exotic fantasies.

She finds herself in a reality full of sexual adventures, and Genevieve learns to enjoy the very decadent and slightly dark world of the wealthy James Sinclair. “Ninety Days of Genevieve” is a tantalizing tale of lust, passion, and discovering one’s deepest desires that you won’t want to miss.

Editoral Review

Negentig Dagen Genevieve by Lucinda Carrington is a contemporary erotic romance novel published on January 1, 1996. The book takes its readers on a steamy journey of a man’s sexual awakening and self-discovery.

Lucinda Carrington is a pseudonym of an Australian author, who is known for her works in the romance and suspense genres. The novel revolves around the life of a successful businessman, Nicholas Derrington, who hires a woman, Genevieve, for ninety days to fulfill all his sexual wishes.

The plot sets off on this highly explicit arrangement and as the days go by; the characters realize that their arrangement is evolving into something beyond a paid affair. Set mainly in the city of Sydney, Australia, the novel explores the twists and turns of Nicholas and Genevieve’s intimate relationship.

Lucinda Carrington’s writing style portrays a vivid picture of the characters and Sydney’s luxurious lifestyle, making the readers feel as if they are a part of the story themselves. The novel is a perfect blend of romance, power play, and sensuality, creating a highly addictive read that is hard to put down.

The characterization in Negentig Dagen Genevieve is noteworthy. The way the author has gradually unfolded the characters’ emotions and subconscious desires enhances the reader’s curiosity and investment in the story.

Nicholas Derrington, the protagonist, has been portrayed as a ruthless businessman who is accustomed to getting whatever he desires. Still, beneath his arrogant exterior, he is vulnerable and struggling with his emotions.

On the other hand, Genevieve, the female protagonist, is an independent and strong-willed woman who has her secrets and vulnerabilities. Her character arc is commendable, as she transforms from a paid escort to someone who is irreplaceable in Nicholas’s life.

The romance between the two characters has been written with utmost care, and the journey they take is both intense and heartwarming. However, the novel’s main flaw is its predictability, and the plot seems somewhat cliché.

The idea of a wealthy man hiring an escort to fulfill his sexual fantasies is well-trodden ground in the romance genre. While Lucinda Carrington has done an excellent job of adding unique elements to the standard storyline, the novel’s predictability may lead to a lack of interest for some readers.

Overall, Negentig Dagen Genevieve is an entertaining read that explores the depths of emotions between two characters beautifully. It is a book that is recommended for readers who enjoy emotion-filled romance novels with a touch of erotica.

The novel may not have any significant historical or cultural significance, but it is an excellent representation of contemporary erotic romance.

In conclusion, Negentig Dagen Genevieve is a well-written and intriguing novel, full of passion and desire, and it is sure to be a pleasurable read for fans of the genre.

I would rate this book a 7 out of 10 for its engaging plot and characterization, despite its somewhat predictable storyline.
