In order to get the information that the government needs she is required to get close to them.
As close as possible.
But in order for Jayme to win the trust of the two men she is going to have to get a lot closer to them than she ever imagined and enter into a relationship that was beyond her wildest fantasies…
Try some paranormal erotica, my Goodreads friends told me. We swear, it’s not all icky and weird, they said.
So, armed with these assertions, I scanned the Amazon bestseller list, picked out a paranormal erotica novel that had good reviews and was selling like Girl Scout cookies outside a Weight Watchers meeting, and away I went. I was hopeful. Hopeful that I’d find the reader’s Holy Grail: an entirely new genre, packed with books just waiting for me to download. (Imagine me tenting my fingers like Mr. Burns and saying, “Excellent.”)
Well, I can tell you this, people: hope is a dark, dangerous thing. It leads you to do stupid crap. Stupid crap like reading this book and giving up 3 hours of my life to do it.
I’ll never get those hours back, people. Never.
Where to start. (Takes a deep breath)
First of all, I’m willing to suspend a good bit of disbelief when it comes to paranormal stories. I’m willing to accept the existence of vampires and werewolves and magic when I’m reading. What I’m not willing to accept are dumbass heroines doing dumbass things for dumbass reasons. Here’s the list (because my problems with this book are too extensive to write in paragraph form. It’d take me all day to get through it, and this book doesn’t deserve that much time):
I could go on but won’t. What’s the point?
Long-story-short, I feel like the author owes me money, as do all the people who left good reviews for this book on Amazon. I would accept payment in cash, chocolate and/or doughnuts.
If any of you feel like I should give shifter erotica another try, feel free to leave some recommendations in the comments section. I’ll try to keep an open mind. Have doughnuts ready, though, just in case.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
This is the Charlie Sheen of books. No amount of rehab will help it. Save yourselves! It’s too late for me...
Other reading suggestions
It’s on the darker side, and it doesn’t involve shifters, but for well-written menage with an actual storyline, try Kylie Scott’s Flesh.
