Lots of hot sex but not enough story development. Overall, average.
on March 3, 2014
This one wasn’t as good as others in the series, but it was ok. I was losing interest during the last 20% - not enough happening - kind of tiring. There are two menage scenes two guys one woman. A very hot scene had Jen watching two guys pleasure each other.
There are three stories but not enough development of them. They are:
1. Jen is being stalked and threatened by her abusive ex boyfriend Brendan. Cash the muscular buff Navy SEAL is protecting her. There are only a couple of short scenes with Brendan.
2. Jen’s brother Carson is having marital problems. His story was told in book #2.
3. Jen is trying to find a job and needs to decide what career path to follow.
THE OUT OF UNIFORM SERIES:
I’ve read 5 books in this series. All of them are about sexy guys, steamy sex, and each guy is totally devoted to one woman (with the exception of #9 - two guys one woman). I am so pleased that the author is not using undesirable plot devices that are used by too many romance authors. What she does NOT use:
2. the big misunderstanding
3. one person falls in love and decides to break up with the other, because it will hurt too much if they break up in the future.
Yay!!! Thank you Ms. Kennedy for not using these. I can enjoy these stories.
I don’t want to read novellas, and there are six of them in this series. But I did read one novella and all the close-to-full-length-novels. My ratings are:
3 ½ stars #2 Heat of Passion (novella)
3 stars #7 Feeling Hot
4 stars #8 Getting Hotter (main story Seth) (secondary story Dylan meets his lovers)
4 stars #9 Hotter Than Ever (Dylan’s story)
4 stars #10 As Hot As It Gets
I suggest reading 8 and 9 in order. They are ok as stand alones, but they are better in order.
