THE LUST DIARIES takes place in Philadelphia —South Philly to be exact. It’s bordered by South Street to the north, the Delaware River to the east and south, and the Schuylkill River to the west. South Philly is a diverse community of many neighborhoods but is most well-known for its large Italian-American population, but it also contains large Asian American, Irish-American, African-American, and Latino populations. It’s also my home town. My old stomping grounds. This series is a love letter to the city and everything I miss about home!
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS SERIES:
Books 1-3 are about Yves, Elijah, and Julian but will continue with other characters
Yves is a victim of domestic violence and deals with unprocessed trauma throughout the series. People process trauma differently. If you’re curious, Xan West had some excellent articles on this. They also left an in-depth review of In Her Closet.
Yves is a promiscuous heroine.
None of these characters are perfect. It’s all messy. Her life, her hair, the bed…
kink features heavily in books 2-3, but not in book one
The Truth Duet features Ava Greene, Yves’ best friend
