The Marriage Diaries Series Box Set contains 4 novellas, The Awakening, The Seduction, The Taking and The Temptation. Each novella or volume is a diary entry by Jillian, the wife of Dean who is taking it on her own to make her and Dean’s sex life sexier than the vanilla sex they have had for the past 18 years. Jillian knows that Dean is holding back his more dominate side when it comes to their sex life and she wants him to let loose and add more excitement into their sex lives.
I liked the idea of these novellas. What wife wouldn’t want more excitement in her sex life with her husband, especially after the kids are out of the house and when your husband is a sexy ex-Navy SEAL. The sex scenes themselves were hot and damn Dean is one sexy man. I commend Jillian for taking charge and taking action to improve their sex life instead of just sitting back and doing nothing about it. Dean throughout this entire set didn’t disappoint in any way.
What I had problems with was the writing style. These characters were supposed to be in their mid-30’s not late 60’s and some of the phrases used made them seem like they were so much older than what they were and the repetition of how Jillian would describe how much improved their sex life was got on my nerves or her overly descriptive commentary about this or that was annoying as well, at least to me. I will still say read these novellas because I like the idea behind them, and overall they were each pretty good, I just had the issues that I stated but that could just be an instance of it’s just me not you happening here.

About the Author
Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.
So, why the new pen name?
As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.
Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.
I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. My next book, THE INVITATION, will introduce the men of that new series, THE PLAYERS CLUB.
