3.0 out of 5 stars Too short, September 15, 2012

This review is from: Naked (The Blackstone Affair, Part 1) (Kindle Edition)
The book was too short for me to enjoy and get invested in the characters. There was no build up. This is part 1 of 3 and maybe that is why it is short but it left a lot out. The sex is jumped into right away and after an incident at his apartment which alludes to some painful past for Brynne, they decide to take it slow...... But don't. Everything is done super fast: He wants her, he easily gets her, he demands that she is his and she submits. Brynne voices her reservations every so often but of course with him she can't control herself. Brynne's therapist practically pushes her towards this new 'relationship' and actually wants to meet him at the end of the session with Brynne having seen Ethan only 1 or 2 times prior. It is from Brynne's POV so you know a little more about her (barely) but Ethan was a little bit of a contradiction. He acted needed by begging one moment to demanding the next.

To be honest this book is not my cup of tea. Why did I read it? It was recommended by a friend. I did not like FSOG but mentioned to her I do like books with dominate men but not bdsm. It's great to have an all consuming passion with a strong male. I read plenty of bodice rippers. However, the bedroom talk in this book is not a turn on for me. He talks about how he is going to f--k her and her panties immediately get wet. Just because he said the f word for saying sex to make it seem dirty does not get me hot. It's not that I'm necessarily offended by the word or the way he talked. I just think it is kind of ridiculous and can't find myself wanting that in my relationship. I'm not crazy about the whole stalker type or Tarzan type either. You mine. I guess this is popular in books right now something called "mommy porn" but like I said not for me. That being said I tried to keep my personal taste out of my rating otherwise it would have been less then 1 star. The book just moved too fast for any real character development.
