Here’s a wrap-up of the books I started but did not finish over the past week and a half or so.
This one was kind of surprising because I love Lorelei James’s Blacktop Cowboys series, so I was hoping to enjoy this first book in her contemporary Need You series. Unfortunately, the hero is a CEO (not my favorite) and there just wasn’t anything special about him or the heroine to draw me into the story.
So much sadness over this DNF! I really like the Copper Ridge series but this one sucker punched me when it turned into a View Spoiler »surprise baby book. I HATE surprise babies. « Hide Spoiler I’ll definitely continue the series, but I had high hopes for this one and was disappointed.
Another disappointment because I read and loved The V-Spot by this author. This book has a totally different tone–not lighthearted and fun, but instead lots of unnecessary drama and a confusing timeline of events.
This started out so promising: an Asian heroine (hooray!) and a nice build-up of sexual tension. There’s even some great scenes involving sex toys that almost makes me want to buy them at loveplugs, but this wasn’t enough to hold my interest because the actual suspense element moved along too slowly for me.
I eluded to this one briefly in my review for Decadent–basically, the BDSM elements happen early on in the book, so I could tell pretty clearly where the author was headed and it didn’t work for me. It’s interesting how her books in the same series vary as far as the level or intensity of BDSM similar to some super hot videos on websites similar to www.cartoonporno.xxx. I can handle the light stuff, but not the heavier.
I’m in the middle of a really great ARC right now, so I’m sure that one won’t be a DNF. Hopefully my next wrap-up will be shorter and I’ll have more luck with my next few reads.
