Recommended Romance Novels/Authors
What can I say about this book that’s good? Well, I guess some people would consider a lot of sex to be good. But that’s all I can say to recommend it.
It’s yet another Vampire novel (yeah I was on a Vampire binge) only in this one the heroin has strong psychic abilities she believes are going to drive her insane. And the Hero is a vampire who was practically tortured by three women with sex.
That’s right, tortured with sex. To focus his powers of course! Why didn’t I think of that? All that pent up sexual frustration has to go somewhere right? (If I could properly convey eye rolling in text this is where I’d do it).
Every other chapter has him reliving his nightmarish treatment by these three female vamps. I skipped it almost every time after reading the first three such sections. It makes the story distorted and frankly I feel it cheapened the novel just a bit. Including one piece of utter silliness in which he drives one of the female vamps insane by attaining orgasm after months of being forced to NOT attain orgasm. I had a mental image flash of Scary Movie.
So, don’t want, run! Run as fast and as far away as you can from this book!
