Hey 138 followers,
I’m back with my unsolicited thoughts on yet another book Sweet Surrender by Maya Banks.
Okay, while reading this book I couldn’t stop the scene from Friends where Joey finds Rachel’s book under her pillow. “You’re reading porn!”
That’s what I felt like I was reading. Porn. Straight up porn in Ebook format. There was a story there that had potential to be really intriguing and possibly hold some mystery and action. Oh, but there as action. In the form of SEX. The scenes were quite graphic and you couldn’t help picturing them in your head. I mean, I picture everything when I’m reading which is what makes reading such an enjoyable experience for me. So, being able to vividly see these characters going at it like pornstars was why I felt like I was reading porn.
I usually feel like some authors try to find words to use to describe the female and male genitals, but Ms. Banks just didn’t not care. She wrote it in such a graphic way that I felt weird continuing to read this book. Slightly uncomfortable. Porn.
And what is up with every woman in these types of books being described as uber feminine and soft? Is that like a staple for females who are looking for kinky sex?
I want to avoid spoilers but there were parts of the story that could have been explored more, like the entire reason the male protagonist moved to a new season, but that would have just taken away from the sex.
Now, I don’t mind a book with some sex in it. I just like to have a well-rounded story. The thing was, this was not well-rounded. The primary focus of this book was sex, and everything else was just fluff.
“You’re reading porn!”
I half expected someone to yell that at me.
Over all it was a bit too much sex and not enough story for me.
I give this story ⭐️⭐️⭐️
