Synopsis from Goodreads

Librarian's note: This is an alternate cover edition for ASIN: B008QQARIK.

Dorian Sorenson agreed to take on his longtime family friend’s daughter, Demitra, as an intern. Hell, Stephen Davis had been his father’s friend for years up to his father’s death and he had continued to be close to Dorian. Why not do him the favor? Except, from the moment he sees the girl, now nineteen and definitely ‘growing up’ he’s faced with a huge problem. Huge. The girl might be eleven years his junior but just looking at her shy sexiness has him trapped in an agonizing need that won’t even let him seek relief elsewhere. His body wants her and no one else. And it’s going to have her, whether Dorian likes it or not.

After a torrid but brief kiss in his office, three months into Demitra’s internship, Dorian is left fighting feelings of extreme guilt. It’s very clear that they’re attracted to each other and that Demitra needs him as badly as he needs her but she’s still a young girl working for him. A young girl who happens to be his friend’s daughter. Dorian is determined to fight this need for her, whatever the cost. What he doesn’t count on is one night, one benefit, and Demitra looking unbelievably tempting on the arm of another man. The bets are off when possessiveness strikes hard within Dorian and only a higher power can help them both because now he plans to claim her. Thoroughly.


     Destructively Alluring is a short read that will leave you panting. We follow a man named Dorian. Dorian is in charge of a company and things have been running smoothly. That is until his best friend's daughter, Demitra (Demi), started working for him for the summer. He is terribly attracted to her, but not only is she the daughter of his best friend, she is also only 19 years old. He knows that it is wrong, but he can't help himself. It also seems that Demi can't help herself either. She is constantly nervous around Dorian, but that is all about to change.

     My goodness, what a sexy little read this was. I had a blast with this. Dorian and Demi are in quite a predicament. Dorian is quite a playboy, but he has slowed down for Demi. He feels something more for her, but he is not sure what. Demi seems to be quite shy, but she soon breaks out of her shell when it comes to Dorian. The entire book is told from Dorian's POV and it is just a blast. He feels like a pervert, but it gets more and more difficult for him not to want to be with Demi. I loved the scene when he and Demi meet up at a party. I am not much for the whole "man-goes-caveman" thing, but this was hilarious. He flings Demi over his shoulder and goes nuts. He acted like a teenager at times and it just made me smile. Demi made the man lose his mind. 

     The scene between Demi and Dorian were super sexy. I really should buy a more sturdy coffee table, just saying. I will say there are quite a few things I am curious about that I hope the next book will cover. I have questions about Demi. Is she as innocent as she says? Even Dorian has questions. Something is up or maybe it is just me. Also I want to know if Dorian's old fling will reappear. Dorian's old fling, Monica, makes an appearance. She is very narcissistic and she is using Dorian and Dorian is using her. He basically gave her the boot and she doesn't seem the type to just let things go. She seems like the vindictive type. It will be interesting to see if she makes an appearance. I have the second book already, so I won't have to wait for that one, thank God!     

    This was a fun read for sure. Dorian and Demi were heating up the pages very quickly. They will have some hurdles to jump over and I am excited to see how they will do it. I hope Dorian will be able to survive the wrath of his best friend. I really love Blanco's work. She really knows how to put together a great story and great characters. This is definitely worth reading. 



About N. Isabelle Blanco

N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother's handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she'd reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.

An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.

N. Isabelle Blanco now has three novellas and two full-length novels under her belt, and spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn't handling her "spawn", as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.
