RESTRAINT, by Sherry Sonnett, is a superior reading experience. Its heroine stumbles into an erotic story which is told through slim, elegant prose. Sonnett guides her heroine through a maze of experiences, several of them sexually charged, which leads her to liberation. It's a stunning story, masterfully told, by a writer who knows the world and the reality of the interplay between men and women.

This wonderful novel, at times poetically written, has it all: romance, sex, high finance, sex, intrigue, danger, and more sex. Exciting as the sex was, the most thrilling parts were the breathtaking emotional risks taken by Vega, the protagonist, written in the first person. Always pushing, expanding her limits, even as drastic mistakes felt inevitable. Oh, to have her courage! And one is left with the hope that, given her courage, she'll one day dare to trust again!

The main character gets involved with an older man with a dark personal history and embarks on a sexual awakenning from fun to dark to strange until her she realises she has been conned and takes revenge.
Is a book good if you cannot put it down because I couldn't with this one. However as you read it, you cringe with the bad writing, and the simplistic language and the steryotypical characters. You wonder if anyone who reads this who has never lived in Los Angeles (which I have) would understand what she is talking about because she uses street names and neighbourhoods as her only description.
The sex was fun at first, but you wish she would stop talking about the power, growth, learning, and oh.. how much she realises she is changing and just get on with it. It was like having the same conversation over and over in different bed rooms around the city. If only the author used a thesauraus and didn't repeat the same words over and over again.
When finally the story unfolds and you realise she hasn't grown, hasn't changed and really she is being a silly woman and could not take rejection and seeks revenge. You wonder, what she was on about in the bedroom.
But the truth was.. the story line kept me flipping the pages.. I wanted to know what was the next step in the main character's grand plan and what her dark dangerous stranger was going to make her do next.
The author was a screen writer and the books reads like one. Not a lot of development, a great story, interesting dialogue, but no descrition and superfical scrappings of the character's thoughts and action. I think it would have made a movie with Sharon Stone.
Read this if you need a story to keep you company on a plane ride or a long stay at the hotel after a long day at work. If you are looking for thought provoking, adult fiction with great writing give this one a miss.

This novel RESTRAINT is an erotic thrill fest with unexpected depths and passages of lyric beauty. Sensual, mesmerizing, the novel manages to hold itself and the reader in suspense -- delighting ones eyes as they move across its spare, intense language. The novel also has a very specific sense of place -- California -- leading the reader into thought, arousal and satisfaction.

At first Restraint seemed like just a ruthless sexual thriller. However, after finishing the book I continued to think about it and realized the message is quite an important one. Sonnett's character, Vega, says several times throughout the book that desire is her goal. Desire itself is the ultimate desire and left unchecked by morals and decency that raw desire, I don't think it even has to be sexual, can lead to the ultimate sin. I think Sonnett did an excellent job of getting the message across while creating an intense and thrilling book.

I barely came across such a poorly written novel. The only highlights are the conversations clumsily placed in-between. The story line by itself is good, interesting idea but very Hollywood like - bad guy seduces nice woman and corrupts her. Basically she wrote a script, not a novel, as her ability to develop the characters and describe the surrounding are lacking depth and don't stimulate the imagination.
