Spicing It Up!
The sex was smoking hot and the mystery was well thought out.
However, there were a few problems I had with this the story. The main one being that it seemed more set in the 60’s or 70’s rather than current times in regards to the attitudes toward a woman in a power position. While I’m not so naïve as to think that the attitudes portrayed in this work don’t exist, I’m sure they do to a certain extent; I don’t think they exist to the extent portrayed. I just couldn’t connect with the story and especially the character of Cara.
On a lesser level I had issues with the consistency of the work. In one paragraph the heroine has stood up from her chair and two paragraphs later, during the same scene, she’s still sitting. This is just an example of some consistency problems. I would hope that future works would go through a more detailed editorial process to help avoid these issues.
Special Notes: This is an erotic work and includes graphic descriptions of sexual situations and shouldn’t be read by those who don’t like descriptive sex in their romances.
