I was provided a copy of Five Steps To The Harem via Net galley in exchange for an honest review. This book started of really great. Catherine is investigating two murders and she has zeroed in on Lord Nicholas Redthorn. I almost thought for a second this was going to be another 50 Shades knock off, so happy it wasn't. There is a point in this book where it just started to drag for me. The pace seemed to be getting slower and slower and Catherine looses herself in Nicholas. I normally like reading D/s books but I was starting to find her lack of backbone pathetic. The ending shocked me. I never picked up on who was killing the ladies until it was revealed. Major plus! Overall this book was good. The writing style isn't my favorite. A bit descriptive and almost poetic at times. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it would have moved at a quicker pace. But, the sex was pretty darn hot!
