Author of more than 50 novels. I read mostly romances and love adult romance erotica and historical romances set in the 1870 1880 west.
If it moved faster. There is way too much character introspection. They think and think and repeat and repeat until I wanted to scream, Just do it!!! The sex scenes were okay, but not worth the build up. I also thought the hero filming them having sex and using that to exact revenge on someone was inexcusable.
I'm listening to one of my novels next.
The performance was good. I wasn't crazy about the Creole accent, but it was passable.
I really disagree with the positive reviews of this book. First of all, the narrator's attempt to have a masculine tone is so laughable that alone ruined the book for me. Secondly, the story line is absolutely absurd and I was baffled the entire time.
Eh. I had wanted to read something with serious hotness in it, and while this book did eventually deliver on that score, you have to wade through a LOT of angst from the main character, which is both boring to listen to and a mood killer. It was basically like Twilight but with sex.
This was my first book by her, and it may be my last. Since these books are for grown-ups, treat the readers as such and don't spend so much time trying to convince us through the main character that the DS lifestyle is ok. Girl, if we're reading these books, we don't need convincing. Just tell the story already!
I guess. Since I found a lot of scenes drawn out by unnecessary inner dialogue, it's hard for me to say whether the narrator dragged things out, or if she was just doing a faithful job of telling the story.
Yeah, I wish it had been that good.
This book could have been SO good if so much time hadn't been spent discussing why kinky sex is ok. I really wish the author had skipped the scaredy cat routine and just gone for it. Every time the action started to get good, the author dumped a preverbial bucket of cold water on you by having the girl waffle about her actions. This is an adult erotic novel, not a YA romance. Knock it off already!
The narrator is very talented and great at creating individual characters but she couldn’t save this book.The story was quite a disappointment. There is very little in way of a plot in this book. The story is loosely tied together in order to create scenarios for all the formulaic sex scenes. The lead character is wishy-washy in her thoughts and the pacing of the story is distractingly unrealistic.I knew what type of book I was buying when I made my selection. However, I had hoped it would at least have a well thought out plot and a somewhat realistic relationship to base the steamy sex scenes. I did not finish is this book.
Don't bother with this one, I wish I hadn't. If you are running for your life from a crazy stalker who has shot at you....well, I think that would be the top priority... NOT sex with a stranger! This was just to silly for me.
Say something about yourself!
The story was intriguing. It did it's job at keeping you interested. The narrator was good. I don't think it's worth $22.00... if it goes on sale or you have a spare credit use it.
The story line was very thin, it tried to have some suspense but it just didn't keep you on the edge or anything. The author repeats characters feelings/ideas/thoughts WAY TOO much! Come on, we get the picture don't keep beating the horse dead.
I'm not really sure what the primary storyline was supposed to be, finding her stalker or her sexual awakening as a submissive. Nevertheless, there the writer could write some hot scenes, so that helped me get through the thin story line.
I actually fell asleep listening to this book, didn't quite captivate me like her other books. A let down really.
Ever since reading the FSG trilogy, it's been a little hard to find books that are comparable. This book was good, but tame by comparison, though had I never read the FSG books, I would have been more shocked by this novel, but it doesn't delve into the BDSM nearly as much, so if that's what you are looking for, it's ok, but won't knock your socks off. It's good, when you need a smut book, it will do the trick. I did not care for the narrator, usually takes a couple chapters to get into a narrator or new book, but I am on the second book of this series, Decadent, and I'm just not that into her.
