Back to me NeedSun in Canada
With that commitment made, I plodded on, often putting the book down for a longer length of time than usual and not wanting to pick it back up, seriously considering starting on something else instead. I guess it was finally around halfway through that it started to get a little more interesting. I don't know if the author got sick of going on for 2 pages describing Kyrian's 6 pack, or if I just got used to it, but any of that overly-descriptive gushing seemed to become slightly less at any rate, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the story somewhat.
Other reviewers talked about the sex scenes, and though there were plenty, they were kind of blah, not graphic enough for my liking. I think the author is afraid to use words like penis or pussy, which I much prefer in sex scenes, and instead used all kinds of flowery terms instead. Wouldn't you rather read about his rock hard cock sliding in and out of her wet, juicy pussy than his hard, stiff manhood sliding into her warm sheath? I don't mean to offend anyone by saying this, but if you're trying to write like erotica, then just do it, don't pussy-foot around! (Pun intended *grin*)
BooksnBeer wrote that she liked the next two books better than this one, and since I liked the ending more than the beginning, in contrast to CandyDarling, I'll probably tackle at least the next one or two to see if I like them better. But if I don't, then heh, I'm still thankful to NeedSun for giving me the opportunity to experience this series. And for all the other readers who kept replacing all the copies that got lost along the way. :)
Though I've still got books 2-4 on hand here, I'm going to return this first book at least to NeedSun since I have Candy's Got Fangs? ring here to send her anyway. It's going to piggy-back along for the ride. :)
EDIT 19-NOV-2006: Mailed to NeedSun along with Night Pleasures on 20-Nov-2006 via International Air Mail.
(CdnBlueRose wishes to be removed from the list.)
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this ring and to all the people who replaced the books that went missing.
This book is going to become part of my PC
Edit May 28: Sent surface mail today.
