    Summary “Desires” by Galia Ryan is a combination of “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” and “Sex and the City”. It's sexy and paints a fascinating portrait of the life led by high end escorts. Anna is torn between a life lived on her own terms, and the dark desires engendered by her dominant lover. At that same time, Anna's employer, Stephanie, is haunted by the choices she made years ago. This riveting tale tore me in two as I applauded Anna for being a modern, independent women making pro-active choices, but then cheered when she fell prey to Adam as well. It's a modern dichotomy to which many women can relate.“Desires” is not recommended as a stand alone book. Start with “Choices”, book 1 in the Luxuria Trilogy, and also read “Secrets”, book 2 in the Luxuria Trilogy. The characters' emotions and internal debates won't make sense to readers who have not followed the series.Fantasy WorldYou will desperately want this luxurious, fictional universe to be real. The high living lifestyle will sweep you away in a wave of champagne.Tingle FactorThe action is hot as the main storyline is interspersed with the details of Anna's 'dates'.RomanceThe romance is subtle and understated. Don't expect insta-love or in your face love in this story. DramaThe tension is low key, but constant. Each character is faced with multiple choices which will alter the course of their lives. HeroineAnna began this series as a banker, and has always had an eye on her financial future. Surprisingly her career as an escort has made her more independent, and helped her grow as a person. Anna has discovered many things about herself including her attraction to the darker side of sexual behavior. She's an admirable character, and her decisions will surprise you.For access to all links in this review, please visit http://www.damesunrestrained.blogspot...

    Anna and Samantha's stories continue here in Desires. Both are getting itchy feet and want more out of life than Elite Escorts can give them. For Anna being an escort is no longer providing the satisfaction that it once did. The work has become a chore. She is looking for something more from her life but doesn't know what that is. When Adam, her regular client from Choices, reappears in her life, wanting her again, it causes her to do some deep thinking about her future. Will his reappearance rekindle her desires for her work or will it drive her away and towards another future? Will she choose a life of uncertainty with Adam or a life where she is in control of her own destiny? Samantha is always experiencing some self-doubt as an old flame comes to her attention again. She realises that her life is missing something but what that is she uncertain about. A trip to London to meet up with an old flame causes her to take a long hard look at her life. Will things change for her? Will she open up her heart to the possibility of sharing it with someone else? Even Adam is considering his own future as he finds himself wanting Anna back in his life. He explores the emotions he is feeling for Anna and tries to get her out of his system but finds himself coming back to her time and time again. But is what he can offer enough for Anna? He is a dominant male but is this what Anna wants? Both Samantha and Anna are strong, independent women but are both suffering a crisis of direction in knowing what they want for their futures. Their desires have changed over time and their current lives are no longer satisfying them as they once did. Do they need money, love, male company or a change in career for their future satisfaction? Life doesn't always give you want and this story follows this concept through by not giving you a traditional happy ever after ending. It leaves you wanting more from this trilogy.

    *ARC provided by the author in exchange for my honest reviewThis is the third book in the Desires series and should not be read as a standalone as the first two books covered Anna (Choices) and Stephanie (Secrets) with their stories so far to this book which concludes the series.I’ve really enjoyed this series and I must admit it was Anna’s story I become more involved in as Stephanie still remains a bit of an enigma to me.At the end of Anna’s story she was left with a conundrum of staying with safe, dependable, loving and sexy fireman Jake or controlling, exciting, scary but sexy Adam. The decision was an eyebrow raiser for sure but none the less a welcome decision! I’ve loved seeing the journey of Anna from shy, staid (ish) bank worker to exciting, exotic escort worker.Stephanie has been through some challenging episodes in her life from such a young age and it is through all this that brings her full circle to where she is now running one of the most high esteemed and in demand escort agency. I was always routing for her with Giancarlo and was interesting to see what would happen when they eventually met again.This series has opened my eyes to my pre-conceptions around the escort industry and gives the reader an entertaining idea of what goes on in this evocative industry.I definitely would recommend reading this erotic and enticing series. Desires is a great conclusion to the series. Four stars for me. Blog tour is at Foxylutely today - check out all the details and our fabby giveaway! http://foxylutely.blogspot.com/2014/0...

    I didn't like it.As far as the book itself goes, then it feels like you're reading a lot of pages for very little insight into the main characters, very little character development, and a very unfulfilling ending to finish it off. It's hardly even an ending, it's more like the pages in the book just come to a stop.The whole trilogy really just leaves you wondering what the purpose, message, or thought behind the whole story was. It feels like I've read a re-telling of events pertaining to two women. And that's it.I feel a little shorthanded to be honest.I do like the book titles. They sum up the story nicely - almost to the point where it becomes unnessesary to read the books, because there really is nothing that makes you reflect on anything.But yeah, the choices people make and how it affects their lives. The intimate secrets we keep from others, and from ourselves. And the desires we seek and are driven by.

    This was the third book in the Luxuria Trilogy. The story centers around Anna who works for Elite Escort Agency. While Anna enjoys the thrills and spills that working as a high price call girl give her she knows that there is something missing in her life.Enter a flame from the past Adam who introduced Anna into BDSM and wanted Anna to submit to him fully which she refused and so she walked away. Now Adam is back and wants Anna but will Adam be able to have a normal relationship with her with requiring her to be his submissive.Then we have Jake who is the just the opposite of Adam who is more stable and wants to marry Anna but is this the life and the person that Anna wants.Who will she choose and will she continue on working for Elite or go back to what she was trained to do. The choice and the ending will definately surprise you like it did me.

    read by reviewer Jenna :)Desires Galia Ryan 4 stars****This is the continuation of Annas story.Anna had turned to an escort service to pay off her debts. She was left with the decision of settling down with Jake or having a dom sub relationship with Adam no love involved and be at his disposal. You will be surprised by her decision to say the least. We was shocked! Anna changes and grows alot and we was very intrigued wanting to know what was next. We was cheering Anna on with the decision we thought and hoped she would make and the ending was a pleasant surprise. A well written series of books. Although one point would be is that the end is quiet abrupt and your left wanting more for Adam.

Anna story continues on. In this book she has become an escort in order to pay off her debt. Anna quickly become the most sought after call girl. Through the story Anna is left to make many decisions that will test her and could destroy her. Then Anna is forced to decide should she settle down with Jake or become Adams Sub. She had cut Adam off after asking her to surrender to him completely but he is back and he wants her. She cants stop thinking about him either. Does Anna choose love or being at a man’s disposal and in a loveless DOM/sub relationship? Her decision will come to shock many. Anna is a likable character who you will find your self rooting for and hoping that her decisions will lead to her HEA.

    Desires is the conclusion of the Luxuria Trilogy by Galia Ryan. Desires is not a standalone, you need to read the other two books, Choices and Secrets, to fully understand the series. This was my first time reading a book by this Author. I didn't know what to expect and went into it just wanting a good story. It was a good story, I enjoyed reading it. The characters made me laugh at times and shake my kindle at others. The story flowed nicely. Over all I would recommend this series to a friend.

    After reading Choices and Secrets this ending to the stories of Anna and Stephanie was a bit of a letdown for me.
