I need to start this by saying that I probably have an unhealthy obsession with nuns. I am not Catholic, nor have I ever been to Mass. However, I love nuns. I love the idea of nuns. If you have been fortunate enough to be forced to listen to go on and on about nuns, I am very sorry. I will never give up my fire breathing nun wind-up toy. I will be buried with it.
So when I saw this book, I was SO EXCITED. I missed the part about it being an erotica and was expecting a really angsty romance. I am not against erotica, but I was expecting some plot. Any plot really. Instead I got dozens of super repetitive sex scenes. By 20% I was texting my best friend and letting her know that even my love of nuns couldn't get me to care about this book. I started skimming the sex scenes, which made the book bearable again. If you skip at least twenty sex scenes then this book becomes readable.
There was some angst and some romance, but not enough to consider this a romance even when I was skipping EVERY sex scene. The characters were flat. There was no connection between the characters at all either. The book starts with Maggie already being physically attracted to Alex and masturbating which is a sin. Then the book just goes downhill. It gets to the point where I just think that Alex and Maggie are alcoholics and are in a lesbian porn directed by a man. There is no substance. No emotion. Nothing except really boring and tedious sex scenes.
There was a whole one scene that started to try and take it back from being the exact same sex every time, but even that fell flat. The big change was a single sex toy and nothing all that dramatic. It was a rabbit vibrator. That was it. Like Alex is supposed to be this big bad butch player. They are both super into penetration. I was expecting a strap-on.
I just don't get why this book was exciting. I love nuns and I couldn't even be bothered to read half of the words. Half of the "plot" was an Italian vacation, yet even that was boring. There was more details about the food and the buildings than the character's feelings or setting the scene for the major plot of: will Maggie leave the church or will she leave Alex. The plot didn't even matter. The decision was beyond easy to call. I just wanted something more from this book. I wanted sex scenes that were hot or at least tepid. I wanted some serious slow burn angst. I wanted something that made these characters want each other. There was no reason they were together. There never was any hint of why they ended up together at all. It isn't like Maggie was in the habit of breaking her vows or anything. I am disappointed in this book.
