I have admit it took a loooong time to get to what happened in the Prologue, at 60% or so but nothing was really said, a sentence or two. There w..Show More »as a lot, lot, lot of talk about the Menanichoch Indians and Thermo-Con. This was only a little interesting so I did found myself skimming to get out of the semi-boring stuff.
I did like Lee and Erica but the secrets she kept from him and vise-versa. It was so angsty and I had found myself wishing they would just TALK, which they didn’t do until about 90% of the book. If you like angst and secrets this book is for you.
At 50%, it was all about sex. I don’t remember anything being said in the first half the book about an erection, or desire or wanting or anything. Then he was hard ALL the time and they were going at it like minks ALL the time. And their time shopping was just stupid! First the dress then the under things. (More skimming.) I felt like I was already into the book 500 pages when I was only on about 210.
At 80% there was still nothing about the woman getting killed in the prologue. Holy hell, why was it even written in. However, at 91% we got to the answer. It was OK but nothing too exciting.
Anyway, it was an OK story but I don’t think I’ll read any other books by this author. I did a lot of skimming and that’s never a good sign.
The best part of the whole book was when Erica kicked the asses of the two of the bad guys.
All the sex was during the last 50%, again and again. There was a little bit of swearing and the F-bomb was released 41 times.
As to the narrator: She was truly awful when it came to the men’s voices. She did have some emotions but if the men sound like women that’s a bad thing. And, OMG, when Lee and Erika had sex it was like two women talking, which would have been OK if I’d been reading a lesbian book. And there were times that her voice threatened to put me to sleep, especially during that long drawn out talk the senator gave her and Lee. Good grief, she read soooo slooow. She might have gotten better in 2016 but in April of 2014 she was terrible.
