Thoughts and review of the book?
Now, y’see? This is an example of porn WITH plot. A very unexpectedly enjoyable read! This is not your everyday erotica, or romance! I daresay, this could be quite the delightful addition to anyone’s collection. The characters were great and (mostly) believable, as were all scenarios and happenings involved.
There were funny scenes, cute scenes, nauseating and even “trigger”-worthy scenes (none of which sexual or having anything at all to do with the sex… one was just violent, the others were just… degrading), yet all-in-all… the book was WELL put-together. I can’t really give too much more detail or I’ll give it away, but just imagine it as a story within a story writing the story you’re reading. If that made any sense AT ALL. xD
FOR SLIGHT SPOILERS & ME BEING RANTY, HIGHLIGHT TEXT BELOW:
The only thing that started to irk me was Arianna’s neediness towards the very end of the book. It was starting to get more than a little irritating, to be honest. I mean, you’ve got what you wanted! You mean to tell me it hasn’t even been an hour and you’re already feeling lonely because the house is empty? Give me a freakin’ break already.
Also, a few pages further in, we come across this equally idiotic scene:
“A solid knock on the door brought me out of my thoughts. I glanced at my watch and saw that it was nearly 11PM. […] I cautiously made my way to the door and looked through the peephole and saw a man in a hoodie with his back to the door. I slowly cracked it open. “Can I help you?” I asked.”
What the hell, girl?! The hell are you just opening the door to some stranger in a hoodie, and you can’t even see his damn face?! WHAT IF HE HAD A GUN. WHAT IF YOU “CAUTIOUSLY” OPENING THE FUCKING DOOR DIDN’T REALLY HELP WHEN HE MUSCLES HIS WAY IN AND RAPE-KILLS-ROBS YOU? The fuck is wrong with you??? It doesn’t matter if you’re a guy, girl, or anything inbetween or otherwise! You going to get your ass robbed being that stupid! Especially in New York City! You are on your OWN now. WITH ENEMIES, no less! DO NOT FUCKIN OPEN THE DOOR TO SOME HOODED, SKETCHY-LOOKING STRANGER THAT WON’T SHOW YOU THEIR FACE FROM THE PEEPHOLE AND KEEPS THEIR BACK TO THE DOOR.
*clears throat — EHEM*
But Zane. Oh Zane. You were a real man, let me tell you. ❤ Probably my favourite character in the whole book, followed closely by Gia (whom I would gladly treat to as many margaritas and dirty martinis as she wanted for putting up with our main girl). But Zane… he did things right, even when he got screwed over by manipulative, twisted people. He stuck to his guns and held to his principles, and when things fell apart? He kept to his own feelings and heartbreak, and didn’t just rush back into things because someone else wanted him to. You gotta respect him for that.
All around, dream man. ❤ ❤ ❤
Other than that? My only real problem actually boiled down to the typos and eye-twitch-worthy editorial issues that littered the pages. However, since I know that what I read was an uncorrected proof, I’ll let those things slide for now in favour of a deliciously hot and solid story and plot.
Last, but not least, I’ve got to mention: This isn’t really my thing. “Straight” erotica, that is. It’s actually been years and years since I’ve read any straight-ero that wasn’t utterly ridiculous and downright laughable. This book here, restores all my faith in good, plot-driven, funny, vanilla, hot AND romantic erotica.
Well done! A definite keeper for sure. Highly recommended~~!
Any warnings you wish to make for your readers?
Well… it IS an erotica, so there’s sex. Lots of sex. But other than that, there’s nothing else that’s all that alarming or anything.
Does it count towards any reading challenges?
Well… it wasn’t exactly supposed to, but it does. xD
