I am not here trying to warn you about plagiarism, from what I can tell this is an original piece of fiction, be it a poorly written one. I’m talking about the fact that I have read and been disappointed by this writer before. I say writer now, because honestly an author has to tell a story and this wasn’t a story, this was a poorly put together, shabbily edited group of sentences strung together. I work hard for my money and you should work hard writing if you expect me to pay for your work. So you can understand why I was upset to learn that this writer is parading herself around to be new to the scene misrepresenting herself as someone you’ve never read before. Well, I have read her, and been let down by her both times. If I had seen this book on Amazon and it had the correct author attached to it I wouldn’t have bought it, but I was swindled!
This book fails in my eyes where all of the writer’s books fail. Consistency, plain and simple. Right in the beginning Seven talks about how deep her and Daniel’s love is and how perfect they are together. Three paragraphs later they break up and she jumps both feet into the deep end of the psycho pool. The break up would be a great catalyst for the rest of the story and how Seven became a Dom. Real people don’t react like that from one extreme to the other and if they do they need to be medicated. Once again though this writer falls short of the mark by hinting at back-story that is never discussed, I shouldn’t be surprised this is the third time this writer has taken a potentially awesome characters, an interesting plot line and some substance to the story and sh*t the bed with them.
Unfortunately the only thing that might be considered endearing, real or promising was the sex scenes and even they fall short. Have read amazing erotica with plot, and that is where this writer loses me, eventually I like a little bit of story with my sex but it felt like she was hoping that the steamy parts would mask the fact that there is no real book here.
If you are like me and trying to avoid Danielle Elwood and the disappointment she brings you should probably steer clear of “Dawn Robertson”. I have no problem with pen names. I have a huge problem with indie authors who start under a new pen name to get away from their own bad press but don’t actually do anything to better their writing so we the poor unsuspecting readers get swindled out of our hard earned money thinking we are reading someone new. There is nothing new to review here other then the names being hanged. Same ball dropped on the plot, character development and editing skills we’ve come to expect from Danielle.
of book I would read. I am more a vanilla girl who wants her books to include smex but not too much and exclusive,
faithful relationships that do not include group smex. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I actually like this book and glad I was willing to read it.
Seven, the h, initially comes off as a hard as*s, take no prisoners kinda of girl both at work and in her private life. She is bi-sexual
and usually will only have one night stands. Also, she likes to dominate in the bedroom and is into group smex. Again, not my preferred heroine.
The hero, Daniel at first blush does not fit my preferred hero either but my perception of him changes. I like reading about men who are jealous, possessive, and like to take charge. Daniel, at first at least, is more submissive. He is willing to engage in anal* smex with Seven who has no problem strapping it on. However, what I love about him is that he is totally in love with her, treats her right, is faithful and does not sleep with other people. In fact, the two times he and Seven engaged in group smex, he does not get turned on by the OW & OM and Seven does not let anyone else but her touch him. Loved that. As a vanilla girl I wish that she did not either after meeting Daniel but I could handle it because the first scene was very shortly after they met and no front door activity between anyone but her and Daniel and the second time again was the same time. She stopped it before it could get too far.
Other things about the books and characters that I liked: I liked that Seven let love in after Daniel was able to break down her barriers. I like that Daniel changed over time and took the lead in the bedroom sometimes. I loved that he pursued her and in his words that he would "do anything" for her that she wanted and would make her happy. Seven was lucky to have a great guy like Daniel. I loved that the book had a HEA. For a traditional girl, that is a must. I I loved that Seven was willing to have a baby and get married. I loved that she evolved that she was not mean anymore as she became more secure in herself and in Daniel's love for her.
The only things that I did not like about the book is that while it seemed like Seven was willing to give up group smex and other people to be exclusive with Daniel she put it on her "to do" list one last threesome and one foursome was on it, before she had the baby. She was pregnant at the end of the book. While I dislike the idea of group smex to begin with the idea that she is doing it while pregnant is disturbing to me. Because the book ended where it did, I get to pretend from then on, it was only the two of them. I did like that she was willing to give up sleeping with her best friend although the best friend in Seven's mind betrayed her and that is what helped her to be willing to give it up. In summary, I am glad that I gave the book a chance and thought the author did a good job.
