Steamy: too graphic for my liking

What do you do when you are in the mood for men in uniform? Cyberstalk them at goodreads of course! I did so the other day and picked this book based on the good ratings. I. DO. NOT. TRUST. RATINGS. ON. GOODREADS. ANY. LONGER. Oh boy, this book was awful.

Steamy: hm

A lot of people love this book. But I just … didn’t. Well I couldn’t. In fact this book made me want to curl up in a corner and rock back and forwards until someone would take me to Disneyland assuring me that the world is pink and bright and little birds that sing will help me getting dressed everyday.

Disturbed heroes and/or heroines can be intriguing. A bit of difficulties in the past and obstacles to overcome are the kind of drama that adds spice to some of the best romantic stories, but in this book it is not a bit of a difficulty or a bit of an obstactle: The heroine needs to be put under psychiatric surveillance. This is not romantic at all, this is worrisome.  This review contains minor spoilers:

Seriously something must be wrong lately with my receptors in the brain or I just suck at reading between the lines. So this review is all about reading between the lines!

Steamy: Very graphically described
Language: Lots of swearing

As far as I have understood Lynda Chance is an author to choose when you are into alpha males. Since I dig alpha males I have downloaded three of her books instantly (I love e-book readers yaay). While the first one (Josh and Hannah) was sweet, the second one (an Eye for an Eye) was … well a bit too much, this one is extreme. I love love love alpha males (think Derek Craven for those coming from the historical romance section like me, or as for YA Jace Morgenstern, Daemon Black etc), however, this guy Marco, he just gave me the creeps. His behaviour is not and I will repeat myself really often now not not not not swoon worthy. It is freaking short of making me want to get a restraint order.  Continue reading
