    I thoroughly enjoyed this one It s a suspense thriller and though it s got a psycho killer baddie, just tired of that old plot line , I consider it a good read If Law and Order SVU s BD Wong character is played by a woman the heroine and her love interest would be Hartigay s character only a man the hero cop you would have this book It s told mostly in first person, from the heroine s pov but when the psycho is on the scene it s third person I liked this one because Morgan Snow, the I thoroughly enjoyed this one It s a suspense thriller and though it s got a psycho killer baddie, just tired of that old plot line , I consider it a good read If Law and Order SVU s BD Wong character is played by a woman the heroine and her love interest would be Hartigay s character only a man the hero cop you would have this book It s told mostly in first person, from the heroine s pov but when the psycho is on the scene it s third person I liked this one because Morgan Snow, the heroine, is a consuler therepist psychologist specializing in the sexual arena I love getting into the nitty gritty of why people do things the way they do, which is why I didn t mind the info dumping Next time Show, don t tell, M J There s also an entire send up on high powered women involved in a secret club that caters to their dominance desires Not out right SM, but women who treat men like men have been treating women through the ages in other words, women as the dominate gender especially where sex is involved Difficult to explain but i m totally digging the author delving into this area of the human psyche The pyscho killer part comes in when the male members of their club the men who enjoy being dominated , are being killed off The scenes from the club were highly erotic, though not necessarily plentiful or explicit I also enjoyed the romance between Morgan and her cop although it certainly took a back seat to everything else going on.This is a follow up to The Halo Effect, but you can read it as a stand alone just fine

    I really enjoyed M.J Rose s writing style This is a great series so far and I think that this book was a great installment of this trilogy and I think that the author has a great knack of making you second guess yourself and wonder who is the murderer This book kind of picks off where the last one ends You have Morgan Snow, a sex therapist and her daughter Dulcie You also see Noah, the detective whom Morgan had a very short lived fling with in the last book I really love Noah He s a great I really enjoyed M.J Rose s writing style This is a great series so far and I think that this book was a great installment of this trilogy and I think that the author has a great knack of making you second guess yourself and wonder who is the murderer This book kind of picks off where the last one ends You have Morgan Snow, a sex therapist and her daughter Dulcie You also see Noah, the detective whom Morgan had a very short lived fling with in the last book I really love Noah He s a great guy, a great cook and so muchI think he s the perfect guy to be honest I love a man who can cook and treat a woman right Anyway, this story had a little romance, very little So if you re looking for a romantic suspense, this isn t it This isof a mystery suspense story about a serial murderer I will say, the ending was not what I was expecting at all. Can I also just say, the group that was dominant throughout, wow at their extracurricular activities Definitely a great read

    Book 2 in the Butterfield Institution series, a group of women belonging to a secret society appeals to Dr Morgan Snow for therapy sessions when one of their members is apparently killed But can she help them when there appears to be dissension within the group itself and where the members only share first names with each other At the same time, someone appears to be kidnapping some of the members of this society and mailing photographs of their dead bodies to a reporter at a newspaper But wi Book 2 in the Butterfield Institution series, a group of women belonging to a secret society appeals to Dr Morgan Snow for therapy sessions when one of their members is apparently killed But can she help them when there appears to be dissension within the group itself and where the members only share first names with each other At the same time, someone appears to be kidnapping some of the members of this society and mailing photographs of their dead bodies to a reporter at a newspaper But without the bodies actually being found, the police are stumped for clues as the body count rises.What makes this novelthan passably interesting is the amount of psychological analysis and process that is described It s a pretty sexually graphic book, but the sex is not gratuitous The author does a wonderful job of keeping the suspense taut throughout

    Once you start with the Butterfield Institute books you become addicted to Rose s seductive voice, thrilling plots and fascinating peek into the darker side of sex.

    SPOILERS BELOW This book fell very short for me With the narrator being a sex therapist, I expected there to bepsychological insight to sexual behaviors and intrests, but for the most part, the story just read like a soft core without any real psychological study Most of Dr Snow s observations as well as personal thoughts were pretty basic and didn t reflect the education of someone with a PhD Additionally, most of the characters made unrealistic observations about other characters, w SPOILERS BELOW This book fell very short for me With the narrator being a sex therapist, I expected there to bepsychological insight to sexual behaviors and intrests, but for the most part, the story just read like a soft core without any real psychological study Most of Dr Snow s observations as well as personal thoughts were pretty basic and didn t reflect the education of someone with a PhD Additionally, most of the characters made unrealistic observations about other characters, which wound up causing inconsistencies in their personalities I felt this was especially true for Liz Betsy, who could tell her young coworker was in awe of her, yet she knew none of the men in the society wanted her There were other inconsistencies in character as well.I gave it 2 stars because it was good enough for me to actually finish I am a sucker for crime novels, and this did have me wanting to know who did it However, I did find the ending improbable and disappointing for several reasons One, why would someone continue into someone s house when they see gruesome paintings through the windows Why would she keep walking into a dungeon without calling the police Why would she keep standing there, watching this couple go at it instead of fighting her way out of the basement Further, how could a man be so enticed by sexual activity that he ignores 4 naked men screaming and moaning around him, a sex therapist begging for help, and the pair of scissors in his wife s other hand
