This one was not nearly as hot or sexy as the first book. He's broken she's broken, everyone is broken....now how do we get our neuroses to all live happily ever after together.
It wasn't bad, I was just expecting much more.
Oh I am sooo disappointed.
This started out with such great potential.....The sex was hot, the power exchange seemed eminent...and then....splat. Before I could saw "Hold the fish & chips!!" I was spiraling into the depths of a grown woman's whiney mostly internal dialogue and a man's brooding non-communicative obsessive love that we generally only see in books featuring sparkly vampires.
By the second half of the book I was so tired of listening to the indecision that I caught myself just tuning the book out......I would snap back into it with a "OOOHHHH that's hot" and within minutes I was trying to figure out what happened in the last 5 minutes of Supernatural that my DVR cut off.
Maybe I liked it, maybe I didn't....maybe I need it and that's really what the problem is...I'm putting it down, no I'm finishing it right now no, I'm throwing it out...no.... Ya, you get the idea.
The only thing to say about this book is that it was wonderful. All of the stories were good, a couple of them were sensational. Very credit worthy.
To be completely fair I should preface this review with a qualifier ~I couldn't get through the whole thing~.
Book one of this series wasn't spectacular, but it was okay. This may be the worst second installment in history.
Anna's inner dialogue makes her sound like an ill-bred golden retriever. She is depicted as being so damaged and so traumatized that it makes Stephen's desire to make her his submissive creepy.
The final straw for me came about two hours into the listen ( nothing erotic having happened up to that point) when she is so broken she can't manage to say his name without sounding it out like it was swahili.
Submissives are wonderful because they are strong and empowered by their service and sexual freedoms. That is nowhere near what this is.
This book is amazingly hot....and naughty....and hot....and well read...and hot....and suspensful...and hot. Did I mention it was hot? Not like jalepeno pepper hot.....like Vindaloo curry hot.
There is an art to talking dirty...and Jack Cole has it down to a science.....
I loved this, I was literally laughing aloud. You want to hate her, you really do...but you just can't. Tastes a little like Mean Girls....fun listen!
This was truly awful....really. I made it about 45 minutes into the book before I just had to turn it off. A woman who works at a sex club got fired from her last job for having sex at work, offers to have a threesome out of the blue with another employee......but dumps her boyfriend for talking dirty to someone on the phone? Ya....that happens.
I don't expect realism, it is fiction afterall, but sheesh.....there ought to be enough in there that I can get caught up in the fantasy of it.
I suppose it might get better later in the book, but I'll never know.
Again, this one stays on the iPod. The narrator is perfect and I love the story. It's obscene, raunchy, hardcore and I loved every minute of it..all three listens.
Wow....just wooowwwwww!!! I had to add new highs to the naughty scale...I love this one. Almost as much as I love the Marketplace series. Def not for the faint of heart....but for me...perfect. This one stays on the ipod.
This doesn't register high on my naughty scale, but it was well worth the credit. I enjoyed the book. If you liked 50 shades, you'll love it. There's more suspense, there's humour and the main character gets past the whiney stage fairly quickly.
I wanted to spank Tessa, and not not in the good way. I'm quite certain I rolled my eyes more than once, but it wasn't awful. A little too predictable, a little too cheesy. A little too 50 shades.
