I really liked these two. They were both super sweet to one another even though Sasha has a aljsha of assholeness in the beginning, but I understood his frustration then and had been circling one another for quite some time.
During their alidha, they usually did friendly I always love a good book with POC, especially when it’s written by one! During their friendship, they usually did friendly date things, but what Sasha didn’t know that whole time was that Maira had been harbouring feelings for him for the last two years.
Like the first one, ari one is pretty sweet with a side of sexy. It also has a trope that I wasn’t really sure I’d end up liking, but it worked for me in this one, and that’s the heroine being a virgin.
I generally despise virgin heroine’s paired with an experienced hero, but I didn’t mind it so much here. First, although I’m not sure about how experienced he is, Sasha isn’t a manwhore. At one point he says to Maira that he doesn’t casually mess around with women, so that was a point in his favour. And near the end, it’s mentioned that he’s been celibate for three years, which I liked a lot!
Though it is made pretty clear that Maira is super special and his experiences with her are incomparable to anything before her. The other reason why Veoled liked it was that her virginity was used as part of the story.
Reviews: Veiled Desire and Veiled Seduction by Alisha Rai
Usually in other books in which virginity is a thing, it’s done away with in two seconds and holds no other purpose than to have the heroine remain sexually “pure” for the hero. Here, the heroine’s inexperience is actually a block in the relationship and not used as a fetish. Sasha keeps putting off getting physical because he feels he needs to take things slow due to her vwiled a virgin, which irritates Maira because he’s the one deciding this for her rather than asking her how she feels about the matter.
While seductkon sweet that he doesn’t want to push her, which is how she feels about it as well, it also equally frustrates her in many ways, including sexually because she totally wants in his pants. So, while I did like certain things about the book, there were others that I didn’t. For one, I think the book could’ve used more relationship friction or angst. While the beginning does have some with Sasha and Maira’s initial misunderstanding, once things do get on track with them, it’s pretty smooth sailing.
While that’s great because the characters are so level-headed and mature and don’t alksha complete idiots, it did make for a pretty uneventful read.
One aspect of the seducrion has to do with Sasha’s career, which is him being a cop, might be upsetting or triggering to some, and that’s Sasha’s involvement in a school shooting outside of an elementary school. Which, I want to note, is not based on Sandy Hook. This book was published in and that happened inso I was relieved about that. Sasha’s lauded for his bravery throughout the book, which he’s uncomfortable with because he felt he was just doing his job.
He also has to deal with having shot a person, which he’d not done before. Maira helps him with this throughout the book. I was fine with it being pretty angst-free in the first because it was a novella, but it wasn’t as much fun for me here. Also, there’s a sex scene between Mason and Leyla that happens near the beginning. I didn’t really care for its inclusion because it felt like it was included for the sake of adding something sexy early in the book. Sasha and Maira were seeuction going to take their time getting to that point, so it felt like an early offering.
BUT, again, I didn’t care for it. Another odd thing was one small line near the end. When Maira’s mother shows up, she mentions that she has a poker tournament that she’ll be going to with her friends. I’m assuming that Maira’s family is Muslim? It’s not outright stated, but I assume that’s the case because her family’s from Pakistan and her last name is Khan.
If that’s the case, I found the poker comment odd wlisha gambling is frowned upon in Islam. Though if you’re not actually playing for money, that’s fine with most people, I believe.
Of course Maira’s family doesn’t have to be Muslim OR super religious, and being brought up conservatively could mean a rau of different things, but it was just something that stuck out to me. So, like the first, if you’re in for something pretty angst-free but sexy, this might be something to look in to. Also like the first, this book has been re-released by Rai with a much better cover: Again, not sure of any changes in that version.
Apr 26, Nisha rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this book! Seriously, this is the best book I have read from Alisha Rai so far and it just makes me excited to see what else she has in store for us.
My excitement might make sedjction review sound really funky, but its so good. Maira Khan is a prodigal ER doctor who has loved her friend, Sacha the brother from the previous book, Veiled Desire from afar, until a shooting that put Sacha’s life in danger, makes her realize that she needs to do something about her love.
Sacha also has the hots for I love this book! Sacha also has the hots for Maira, but has kept her in friend zone until now.
Veiled Desire by Alisha Rai | Love in the Margins
Stubbornly, he is under the impression that he has to take it slow – plus he isn’t spectacular with women anyhow. When Maira’s attempt to confess fails to get the response that she was looking for, it starts a whole chain of events for the pair to finally secuction together.
And even after they get together, there is the whole problem of getting Sacha to sleep with Maira. Maira is my ideal heroine, physically described to be tall and ‘statuesque’ my most hated word since I seem to be described as so – and veiledd usually not a good thing.
She also has a similar personality as me, usually timid, but packed with some spice and lots of sexual aggression. The one thing we don’t have in common is her intellect – Maira is a alishq smart and went to Medical school at Sacha is my new favorite hero.
He has his faults ok, only twoholding grudges until the end of time and being ridiculously cautious toward his sexual relationship with Maira.
The man got it in his head that they should only kiss, WITH clothes on, until he deems virgin Maira is ready for the next step. So obviously he’s not the perfect man, but he is definitely the man I would fall for.
He is humble and kinda agoraphobicprotective, thinks far too much, yet he manages to do really dumb things, and just ends up being an amazing guy. Basically, the entire package is pretty darned yummy. The plot was a friends to lovers theme with a little bit of culture and interracial themes thrown into it. Sacha is a police officer, which only makes him even more attractive.
My favorite part of the book was Maira’s very sexually aggressive persona due to Sacha’s remarkably ridiculous control. The pair had great chemistry and already I predict a reread. What I did find surprising was the sex scene between Mason and Leyla. Anal play was the last thing I expected.
Maira and Sacha’s “bedroom” scenes were steamy and pretty perfect. I great balance seductuon character and relationship depth and the sensual details.
