 Serena’s Plight is rich with passionate, detailed sex interspersed throughout an equally detailed drama of a young woman’s determination to survive all adversities and never give up her search for love.

Serena Loomis grew up poor, with an alcoholic mother and no father, but with Sam Everhart as her best friend. All she ever wanted was to become Serena Everhart, but Sam inexplicably began to push her away, and finally broke up with her. Abandoned by the only male she’d ever loved or felt loved by, they rarely spoke as Serena started going through boyfriends as fast as her mother, until she confronted a painful truth: Giving them everything wasn't enough.

Now when Sam figures he can’t afford an Ivy League degree, he contacts Serena again with a plan to close his tuition gap by selling her considerable sexual favors to a few rich, trust-funded fraternity brothers, but when he starts to tell her about it, he changes his mind before he gets it out. Serena coerces him into divulging it after all, breaking her heart again.

After a sleepless night, Serena considers her lack of plans or hope for her life, and the prospect that Sam’s elaborate scheme would give her a small fortune at the end of four years. She reluctantly decides she has no better option, and will pursue Sam’s idea as a necessary, but temporary compromise to secure her future. Serena has to pressure Sam into following through with it, but he does. Unfortunately for Sam’s renewed interest, she seems to thrive under the new circumstances. Unfortunately for Serena, although her work provides numerous pleasures, it’s a lot more difficult than she ever imagined, and getting worse, not better.

If you love erotic romance, don’t miss this epic tale!

 Serena's Plight by Carol Madison where do I start...Okay. This book was labeled a contemporary, erotic, and psychological romance. It is contemporary, it is a lot of sex, it is not even close or anything resembling a romance.  This is pages and pages of Serena doing Sam's friends. Sam the boy she has had a crush on since grade school. He turns out to be her boyfriend briefly in high school, and when he goes to college he decides to be come her pimp.  Cause in his words, she is really good at sex and needs money.  Wow he is a winner.  That was the thought I had about him after he uttered that sweet statement. So he goes on to explain how this can help her, and him too.  She does it. Why??? I don't know I think she has a self esteem problem.  Cause this character is way better than that.  But any how she does it and well that is the whole story.  We get pages of her doing his friends, his friends lying to her, and using her. Yep that is not romantic to me.  I fail to see the romance in this story.   I think if you are looking for a book with a ton of sex, with multiple partners, this is the book for you. If you read the blurb and thought there was a romance like me, you are going to be disappointed. It just is not there.   For me I am a romantic at heart and this read really let me down.
