If you're curious of all things naughty, welcome aboard the kinky train! So there really wasn't many characters in the plus pages of this book. Andy is the cliche'd bad boy.
He's tattooed, dominate, but a regular asshole when he's not giving Maddie screaming orgasms, that is. Gabe is beautiful, buttoned-up, and lives to take orders. He's the clean freak to Maddie's unorganized self. He's madly attracted to Maddie, but has a hard time telling her what he wants. He's great at taking orders—hell, he loves it—but he's terrible at telling her what he wants. Maddie is the slutty owner of a slutty bookstore and she wants Gabe.
She might be screwing a tattooed god, but she'd rather have Gabe bent over her bed, obeying her every order. There is nothing in this book that I have read before. I described this book to a friend as "literary erotica mixed with dirty, dirty sex. Even if the story is good, even if the book is well-written, there's a rubbing-against-the-grain element to the experience, a disconnect that can be distancing and alienating -- all of this aside from whether or not you expect the book to actually turn you on.
But every rule has an exception, and every exception opens up the possibility of a watershed moment. Hyper-confident, swaggering Andy is sniffing around Maddie as well. As Maddie and Gabriel grow closer as a couple, Andy hangs on as a third party the bedroom to further humiliate Gabriel. I do not naturally gravitate toward books about sweet submissive guys. But, as usual, Charlotte Stein is talented enough to trample over my natural inclinations and preferences.
She writes Gabriel as tender, meek, neat-freakish, virginal He is so easy to fall for, a straight-up wonderful character. Maddie, who's used to loutish galoots like Andy, who's masterful and quick with the dirty-talk but also an insensitive jerk, absolutely cherishes Gabe. We've had more intense conversations about feelings and issues than I've ever had with anyone, not to mention all the talk about BLTs His stance on tomatoes alone means we should be married by now.
If you want a quick smutty read with a dirty talking Russian guy this is the book for you! It's a quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This review can be found on my blog, Fic Fare View 1 comment.
Sep 23, Ruthie Knox rated it it was amazing. Ah, Charlotte. Nobody is writing erotica like Charlotte does. I think sometimes that drives her bonkers -- she is a friend -- but I am so glad that she is doing it, I can only see it as a good thing. Deep Desires feels, thematically, like an extension of Sheltered.
It's about the redemptive power of sex for psychically wounded people. And I mean this not in the sense of fantasy sex, though of course there is an element of fantasy here, but more in the sense that in order to have great sex, her characters are forced to reach for and accept and embrace different selves. They are forced to become the people they need to be in order to communicate with their bodies and their minds.
Nobody else is writing erotica like Charlotte does. Thank goodness for her.

Sep 30, Cyn Mistress Kitty rated it it was amazing Shelves: OMG, I haven't ever read a book like this. It was just so much. It was dark, haunting, tortured, erotic, intense and disturbing and I loved it so much that I was riveted.
The characters were both so fucked up and tortured that the reader just couldn't help but cry for them and will them to help each other out of their personal hells. Wow, the sex was intense and I had to take breaks from reading just to cool down. My only complaint was that this story was too short and the ending was too ab OMG, I haven't ever read a book like this.

I swear that CS is one of the best writers and this book showcases that. View 2 comments. Feb 27, Sofi rated it it was ok Shelves: Reading this was like being in a dream. The writing is that strange! I feel like I would've loved the book if the writing wasn't "dreamlike".
There are barely any dialogues, and the narration is so confusing at times that I had to go back a few sentences and re-read. This book contains voyeurism, a hot Russian guy who looks like a serial-killer, and a very sex-hungry main character Nov 20, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: A very emotional Charlotte Stein writes some hot stuff - like off the charts, smokin' hot - yet her stories are much more than just mere titillation and 'Deep Desires' was no different. This novella was slightly dark, sometimes disturbing, sometimes tender and a very affecting tale of self-discovery and emotional freedom.
Yep - Stein definitely manages to pack quite a punch into a small package! Told exclusively from the 1st person perspective of Abbie, a reclusive and f A very emotional Told exclusively from the 1st person perspective of Abbie, a reclusive and fragile woman living in fear of her abusive past, we get a front row seat as she embarks on a thrilling yet strange relationship with the most unlikely of heroes.
Seemingly cold and indifferent, Ivan reaches out in his way to Abbie and helps her to trust again, but he harbors deep seated intimacy issues himself that threaten their tentative relationship. Although we only see Ivan through Abbie's eyes, his actions speak loudly and you can't help but fall for him too. All in all, 'Deep Desires' leaves you feeling satisfied that in the end these two unlikely partners have truly found their HEA. Sep 21, Sunshiny Me rated it it was amazing.
I've read several of Ms.
Stein's books and enjoyed them all, but this one is definitely my favorite. I loved it. It was dark, emotional, and soooooooooooo hot. SO HOT. Aaaaaand he calls her "baby" I'm so sad I finished this book.

Charlotte Stein has blown me away again, in pages she has managed to convey more emotion and sexual chemistry than a lot full length books.
Both Abbie and Ivan aka The Serial Killer, were complicated characters who I felt a connection with as I watched their unconventional relationship unfold. Although for a good portion of the book Ivan and Abbie don't touch as they explore their voyeuristic sides this didn't stop this book from being smoking hot. But, it wasn't just the kinky shenanigans that kept me reading this slightly dark erotica, it was characters. Peeling back the layers of their past and their traumas to see what has made them such isolated and dysfunctional individuals was just as interesting as the erotic aspects of the book.
This was a great novella, I am definitely becoming a massive fan of Charlotte Stein and can't wait to get my hands on another one of her books. Dec 18, A. Goulden rated it really liked it. I don't think I can write an intelligent review since I really just want to read this book again. I saw another review that said that before I read this This is the first novel I've read from Charlotte Stein and she has a true talent for creating intriguing characters full of surprises and depth that reeled me in.
I stumbled on this book on a list of romances that deal with voyeurism 4. I stumbled on this book on a list of romances that deal with voyeurism and I was curious. Wow was I given a mindful of an eyeful.
The voyeurism was extremely hot, but the story that develops between these two lost dark souls is what kept me turning the pages. Each scene between them builds a bridge to an unbroken place that you need to get to The only reason I didn't go for five stars was that the Abbie POV was sometimes jarring and didn't make sense when it dipped into Ivan's thoughts. I do have to say that her voice was fresh and at times funny when I didn't expect it giving her a depth that I loved.
I just think this novel could've worked entirely from just her POV. I highly recommend this hot read. Mar 26, Carisa rated it really liked it Shelves: This was an incredibly original, compelling, erotic novella. View all 4 comments.
Charlotte Stein does it again with a dirty, sexy, raw love story that hits all the right buttons, including some I didn't even know I had. Review posted at Heroesandheartbreakers.
Dec 06, Vanessa North rated it it was amazing. This book takes place in those dark bits of Abbie's brain where she's not sure she is able to love and be loved, be sexual and open to another person. She's terrified and turned on and desperately beautiful.
Ivan is even more of a hot mess than Abbie, but we don't get to be inside his gorgeous head which makes me a bit sad, because I'm sure it's amazing in there because it's written in the first person all from Abbie's POV.
To me, the plot outside Abbie's head--the one where she and Ivan meet a This book takes place in those dark bits of Abbie's brain where she's not sure she is able to love and be loved, be sexual and open to another person. To me, the plot outside Abbie's head--the one where she and Ivan meet and interact and such--is nowhere near as fascinating or as beautiful as Abbie's internal love story.
Going from Abbie, this girl who can't believe she's watching a man masturbate and can't imagine he'd want her to, to this inviting, welcoming, loving--even loving herself a bit--person who finally sees their relationship as something beautiful and real.
A good bit of the book takes place through windows and screens, and reading it you feel almost like a voyeur, and it's so freaking brilliant because it unlocks all those dark Abbie-feelings in the reader also. Brilliant and beautiful and sexy. I can almost hear him moaning, through the glass. I realise it before I let my gaze travel downwards, to the thick, heavy bulge between his legs. Holy Fuck.. Each and every page is oozing chemistry and sex..
Its like your skin's on fire! I really liked the book and the story, but one thing pissed the shit out of me.. She spoke the whole book in her head, like even his dialogue but. I don't like this kind of narration, Forget don't like I can't even stand it, but yet the sexual tension kept me going and oh boy, fuck the book is hot.
Its got a little dark to it but fuck me it was hot, beautiful and just asdfghjkl!! Jan 24, La-Lionne rated it really liked it Shelves: It started a little strange, but turned out to be a sweet and erotic story. I'm not particularly fond of Charlotte Stein writing style. Her stories have very little dialogue. This one was not an exception.
A lot of the times the heroine told the reader what have been told to her. Not only it made me bored, it made harder to get to know Ivan. Thank god Stein's stories aren't long, otherwise I would have gotten bored. With that being said, the story about tortured lovers wasn't half bad. It had in It started a little strange, but turned out to be a sweet and erotic story. It had interesting characters and nice pace.
It was a fun read. Sep 24, Stephanie rated it really liked it Recommended to Stephanie by: Smut that makes you think. I was between just liking this and really liking this book. So at first I gave it three stars, but the way the author tells the story is so good I think it deserves another star.
The way my dear sweet friend Amy describes this book, as an XXX rated Hitchcock thriller is the best description that comes to mind right now.
Dec 27, Christine rated it liked it. This is one of those books by Charlotte Stein that leaves you just slightly unsatisfied enough that you can't stop thinking about the book and the what ifs. I suppose that's a good thing in that it makes it memorable. But seriously, I would've liked a concrete ending. May 13, Gigi rated it really liked it Shelves: Panty dropping. This was raunchy and nasty in the best possible way!
Thumbs up. Incredible story, what a voice.
Only truly skillful writing could pull this off. Sep 21, Nisha-Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: You know how sometimes when you've known a friend for a long time and then they say or do something that makes you look at them and realise they've just evolved to a whole new level of self-actualisation?
I just experienced this in a totally different context. I realised very early in this novella with a few words that lanced out of nowhere and made my body jolt that with this story, Charlotte Stein's evolved to a whole new level as a writer. And my god, that is such a privilege to witness for me You know how sometimes when you've known a friend for a long time and then they say or do something that makes you look at them and realise they've just evolved to a whole new level of self-actualisation?
And my god, that is such a privilege to witness for me both as a reader and a writer, to follow an admired writer through her novels and see her reach for a deeper more dangerous authenticity and get there, do it bravely and do it well.
There was the barest hint of darkness in Power Play which I picked up on enough to be slightly frustrated it didn't get unpacked. Here in Deep Desires, that darkness is laid right out on the page and explored with a clarity and a ruthlessness and a poignancy that is at times fair breathtaking.
And skill too because Abbie's traumatic history isn't tediously forced out in info dumps I've always loved the effortless intimacy of Stein's writing style, the stream of consciousness that some readers seem to struggle with but which instantly hooks me in and makes me very very comfortable and secure in her writing hands.
And that effortlessness is exactly why those moments of reveal are so perfectly effective, especially to a reader like me who prefers to piece things together instead of being treated like I'm two years old. It's elegant. There's a powerful use of metaphor in this, a puzzle box and a labyrinth, the latter of which I just remembered was a symbol in the very first Charlotte Stein story I ever read, Waiting In Vain.
Only here it's infused with such weight I had a slight smile of deep approval as I read those paragraphs. The development of that and the puzzle box as metaphors for the emotional mazes both Abbie and Ivan have to negotiate in themselves and each other was something so rewarding and wonderful to see, added to the gravitas and worth of this story as more than a bit of escapist fun.
This story is a journey and it's a hard one but valuable. Whereas the transformation arcs and empowerment in other Stein stories have been varying shades of subtle and always couched in fun never a quality to be undervalued here the angst is inescapably real and makes the sexual heat and emotion so much richer.
I got quite emotional actually reading this which is a personal first for what's marketed as erotica. Abbie endeared herself to me quite unconsciously with her intense but artless vulnerability mixed in with enough intelligence and self-awareness and wit like all Charlotte Stein heroines. I don't want to sound dismissive of that or triviliasing it but the fact is I've come to expect that from a Stein story, it's perfectly natural and obvious now that her women would be like that.
But there was a moment in this novella where my heart clenched around Abbie, where suddenly it was sealed fact that I adored her. No moment of great profound insight or vulnerability or heroism though that does come later and I pretty much roared in my head for her As hot as the escalation was and as much as it made for a certain deliciously fucked up edge to the danger, that unease roiled for much longer than I expected, really not helped by the Serial Killer tag.
And then my god, the sweetness of the reveal, the great shuddering sigh of relief when we're shown in incontrovertible proof and no heroics that Ivan cares about her in a way she deserves, in a way that elevates not degrades her. There's a wonderful moment early in the relationship that telegraphs it but played with enough ambiguity that I quailed at the use of the word 'triumph' and then melted a little at Abbie's realisation in the next line. But the conversation in the middle of the book was really the clincher for me, erased all my doubt and fear for her.

Hee hee. Subjects Erotic Literature Fiction. It just looks so good. Jane O'Reilly. It was like I was actually watching Ivan touching himself from my window, I could picture everything Abbie was seeing and it was so intense and sexy, I loved it hide spoiler ] I found the initial relationship between the two main characters fascinating.
Having said that, I'm pretty sure I'm not wrong in imagining Michael Fassbender all the way through this. We've had more intense conversations about feelings and issues than I've ever had with anyone, not to mention all the talk about BLTs His stance on tomatoes alone means we should be married by now.
And I mean this not in the sense of fantasy sex, though of course there is an element of fantasy here, but more in the sense that in order to have great sex, her characters are forced to reach for and accept and embrace different selves.
