Synopsis as per Goodreads:
In the manner of Fifty Shades of Grey, Vina Jackson’s compelling, pulse-racing trilogy is a mouth-watering feast for the senses.
Caught in a frustrating relationship with a man who can’t accept her for who she is, passionate, flame-haired violinist Summer finds release in her music. She spends her afternoons busking on the underground, lost in the works of Vivaldi or Mendelssohn. When her violin is damaged beyond repair, Summer receives a surprising proposition from Dominik, a university professor with powerful desires, who has been captivated by Summer ever since he heard her perform. Dominik will replace her priceless violin, but only if she agrees to play for him in a private concert.
Unable to deny the chemistry between them, Dominik and Summer embark on an intense affair full of daring twists and turns, as unpredictable as it is thrilling. For Summer it is a chance to finally embrace her long-denied dark side, but she’ll soon learn that where there’s pleasure must come pain. And can a relationship born of such all-consuming passion, ever really survive?
Exhilarating, seductive and tantalizingly bold, EIGHTY DAYS is a love story that will leave you breathless for more.

Where did I get the book: Amazon.com
Would I recommend it: Do you like hardcore porn in the form of a book? If so yeah, it’s for you. For those of you who are more faint of heart don’t even try it.
If I hear one more person tell me this book is like Fifty shades of Grey I might just throw the book at them. Fifty Shades of Grey was a sweet romance with some hardcore scenes, which then tended to mellow out the more Christian fell in love with Ana.
Eighty days of Yellow was literally what my friends like to call book porn. A mass of hard core sex scenes with a whisper of a story line. I might just be over reacting due to the fact that I really am not a fan of all the slavery type nonsense that was introduced to me in this book. I have no problem with light BDSM. If it is tasteful. If it reads well. To me this did not. Gone are the days of simple submission. Back are the days where girls have themselves registered as slaves. Marked and branded as proof that they belong to someone. I couldn’t quite stomach it.
Summer is a horible character who has no idea what her values are and who she wants to be. Yes she is all about her violin, but that surely is not enough. She has no boundaries and has no back bone. This only changed closer to the end of the book and I don’t know what she is like later on in the series but it irritated me no end. Dominik is a cold character. Cold and distant and completely confusing.
It did have SOME redeeming qualities. The authors worked well to create a web in which I found it hard to put the book down. I raced through the scary sex scenes to get to the end of the book, only to find out what happened. I was up until 1 am trying to finish it. But this was mostly so I could just be finished with it.
Suffice it to say I will not be purchasing the next lot, nor reading them even if I got them for free.
And I was so looking forward to it!
