Pleasures Untold - Lisa Sanchez Pleasures Untold is the second story in Ms. Sanchez’s Hanaford Park series about paranormal activities on/near a college campus. Although Martha and her roommate Jessica appear in the first book, Eve of Samhain, the stories are independent of one another and can be enjoyed individually. Pleasures Untold is told in first-person POV from Martha’s perspective.

I completely enjoyed Martha’s snark, wit and humor. Her one-liners had me rolling from the get-go. Xan is hot. He’s a tortured soul due to experiencing a number of emotionally devastating events throughout his long life.

The plot involved a big bad vampire who has been chasing after Martha and her family her whole life. It provided some excellent tension and exciting action. There were also some interesting plots twists - most of which I was able to figure out, but found compelling none the less. There were a few unanswered questions, but it didn’t impact my overall enjoyment of the book. Pleasures Untold is another delightful read from Ms. Sanchez.

My Rating: 3.5 stars: Liked it a lot - recommend (B+)
