My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a totally new perspective of Lucca. Seeing the story from his view allowed us to see why he is so fragile and insecure at times. He has experienced loss and trauma. Hey, the man is rich and isn’t really sure who he can trust. Very few seem to get into the inner circle. The story has a rare masculine romance feel to it. Lucca describes his feeling for Lexi as “grab your breath.” SJ carries you right on into getting ready for book 4. The plot was well developed. It was pretty easy to follow along and now right where Lucca was. The characters still felt realistic. My favorite part was when Dominic laid one on Lucca. On to book 4…

The Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust by SJ Molloy.
This series is one of my top picks for 2021. I’m a girl who loves a story about people mainly women living through awful things and rising above it all. Throw in a guy who makes me swoon all that much better. Lucca and Lexi are a couple of main characters that will pull you so completely into their world you won’t even know the time passing. Books one and two are a continuous of their story and book three is Lucca’s view of book one. My only complaint is that I had a hard time getting through book three simply because I wanted the furthered storyline quicker. Don’t get me wrong I loved getting Lucca’s point of view but I’d have liked it a bit later but please don’t take that as a hit against this amazing series because even though I didn’t like the timing per say I still absolutely loved Lucca’s point of view. This series is definitely not for the faint of heart there’s situations that could trigger some and be uncomfortable for others but if you love a strong character who fights hard to live her life I highly recommend this series. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I’m so excited to get more time with Lexi and Lucca. Five great big stars!

Definitely for readers 18+

Lussuria
Lexi Robertson believes she has it all. She has a new practice as a physiotherapist, a loving brother, a protective, if not overly hyperactive dog, Doris, a wonderful group of friends, and of course, her best friend, Hazel. Where Hazel is outspoken and fun-loving, Lexi is reserved and distant. Their opposite natures bring them together and have since their first day at university.

Hazel and Lexi are off on a vacation in Tuscany, Italy. They want to learn to cook Italian cuisine and bask in the lovely Tuscan countryside. Lexi loves the villa, and their hosts, Sophia and Franco. Little does she know that her life is about to change. Lexi finds herself in the same villa as her mystery patient from before she left. She’s terrified that he stalked her there. Finding out that this is his grandparents’ villa, Lexi learns to trust Lucca Caruso.

Follow Lexi’s story fighting off the darkness of abuse and insecurity, to finding light in love and lust.

L’Amore
Lexi and Lucca have discovered that they are each other’s present and future. The second book in the Luminara series focuses on how that love grows.

Suddenly their love is challenged when a ghost from her past begins searching for her. Life drastically changes for her and Lucca as well as anyone with whom they are closely acquainted. Can their love prevail? Or will darkness consume Lexi again?

Lucca’s Lust
The third book of the Luminara series focuses on Lucca’s past. SJ Malloy does an outstanding job of describing how Lucca deals with life and tragedy. From his past to his present, the story of Lucca is an outstanding story of how a man deals with life, love, and tragedy.

This is a true story about overcoming your past to find love and light. I was captured by the stories of the characters from the moment I begin Lussuria. This is a true love story.

Very very very good read! May I say……… Oh Lucca!!!! These books are so full of pure raw emotion. Lucca makes my heart swoon! The love between Lucca and Lexi cannot be denied. The emotional roller coaster ride that Lexi went through, especially as a child growing up, just tore at me. Her strong, sheer determination to get through is just wow! I am very excited to see what happens next. If you are looking for love, lust, twists and a strong story, this series is for you!

Lussuria by SJ Molloy

I enjoyed this novel by S.J. Molloy. The novel really touched onto some dark and intense topics. The subject of abuse and how recovering from it can be intense and take time. The story of Lucca and Lexi proves that out of darkness light can come. Lexi’s journey to discovering love was intense and full of many twists and turns. S.J. Molloy writes with passion, and I don’t think that her stories are for the faint of heart. It is an interesting read and I look forward to continuing the journey in future installments.

L’Amore by SJ Molloy

Once again SJ Molloy did not disappoint. The continued story of Lexi and Lucca continued on its journey exploring a dark and intense topic. Lexi and Lucca proved in this latest installment that finding love is possible but keeping the love takes a lot of work. The passion of the first novel continued in this one and I look forward to the future novels in this series. SJ Molloy is a good author and I really enjoy reading her books

Lucca’s Lust by SJ Molloy

The third installment of this series was also very good. I liked the fact that this one was seen from Lucca’s point of view for most of the book. Lucca and Lexi have to overcome a lot of obstacles as they try to make a life together. The subject matter is intense and very interesting. I look forward to reading more.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the books 1-3 and the rawness of Lexi’s and Lucca’s love for each other, I couldnt finish the rest of the series. The writing was really good and it brought you literally into Lexi’s mindset. The abuse scenes got to be a little much for me and i had to skip some parts of it. I would recommend to my my friends, but I wouldnt recommend it to those who have gone through abuse. Lexi’s development through all 3 books was nicely paced out. You could see her growth and there were some parts that weren’t realistic, but still added to the story. Overall I enjoyed the Authors storytelling and her writing style.

The Luminara Series: Box Set – Volume 1 (Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust) by SJ Molloy

The Luminara Series (Boxset 1-3) by SJ Molloy is a Dark Romance that once you start reading you will find yourself lost in the pages and wont want to put it down. I truly enjoyed this Boxset and reading about Lexi and her journey from dark to light. I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout the books and my emotions were all over the place. There are dome scenes that may be a trigger for some and a couple times I had to walk away for a bit and then picked right back where I left off. Can Lexi and Lucca together get past the dark and into the light together? I highly recommend reading this Boxset and I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Having lived in my own darkness I understand the fear and the need of the light. I need a Lucca in my life! So understanding, supportive and loving. Protective. Intense. Lustful. Someone to make you feel loved, wanted and accepted despite the broken pieces that you are made of. A relationship that holds together by lifting each other into the light. This is not 1 but 3 books about of that love and life together. I cried, I daydreamed and I wanted… Please read this series!
