Simply Pleasure by Kate Pearce

 Experience the illicit passions of Regency England in Kate Pearce’s House of Pleasure series…
Ten years as a sex slave in a Turkish brothel have left Val Sokorvsky a master in the art of erotic seduction. But even as he offered his body, he never offered his heart. Now that he is returning home he wonders what kind of welcome he will find. Only one person understands his pain and Val is helpless to resist the passion he feels for Peter Howard, his English lover…
Peter learned to survive his years as a sex slave by coaxing and teasing his lovers to the heights of sexual ecstasy. But there is only one man he’s ever loved, one man he can never take as his own. Returning to England may save him from captivity but it may also take away Val, the one man to whom he’d willingly give his body and soul…
This was a really quick short read for me personally.  While it had its good points, it also had its downfalls for me as well.
I thought the story went along very fast… Almost too fast at times.  I did like the characters though, and the complete differences between Val and Peter.  Peter’s character was very very likeable, but even after the things that Val did for Peter, I just didn’t really like him.  He came off like a jerk for most of the story.
I did have to say though that the backstory between Val and Peter was very interesting and I would be wanting to read more about that in particular.  But I don’t personally think that I would want to read more about these characters though.
