The premise of this novel was engaging. I liked watching Eric’s decent into full hedonism. He was compelling and engaging and I would be interested in seeing him redeemed. What I’m not interested in, is the way the story was presented. Most of the story is told in a journal entry manner. There were plenty of instances where we were told, character 1 said XYZ and character 2 reacted. It wasn’t terribly exciting. My only other criticism was how the sex scenes were handled. The few times Eric felt emotions, sensations, “things”, I was 100% more engrossed in the story. Unfortunately, most of the sex scenes were limited to moving body parts. Her hand went here. My hand went there. Etc.
I believe there is a lot of potential in Mr. Earle’s writing. I picked up some of his other work and will try them out as well.
TL;DR; Too much “tell” and not enough “show”
This one doesn't work for me on any level.
First, the "hero" is more of a "zero". He's far too passive in the romance game allowing no fewer than five different women to bulldoze him. He never stands up for himself when it counts. Worse, he agrees to date a girl that his best friend, a man who saved his sanity after his parents died, is trying to date.
Second, the sex scenes are longer than they need to be, and not really erotic. They came across as if written by a 15-year old virgin boy who only knows about sex because he watched some internet porn. The scenes are so impersonal as to repel me rather than make me think any kind of erotic thought.
I can't say I'm greatly surprised by this. I've now read parts of 4 different series written by Michael-Scott Earle, and all of them have felt like they needed extensive editing to improve plot and flow. They are well proof-read and MSE is a skillful writer, but the plots are childish and the characters woefully developed.
Interesting romance from a man's perspective. I would call this erotic fantasy with very graphic sex scenes in this book. Other than some lesbian sex and a menage de trois, sex in this book is fairly vanilla. The first sex scenes are pretty good, and I understand that there needs to be more positive portrayals of safe-sex, but in erotic fantasy it irritates me.
About my only real complaint is that there is a lot of telling, rather than showing. I am wondering if this is some of the author's earlier work, as I have read some of his other material, and it is much better.
I will read the rest of the series to see where the story goes. Not very realistic, but entertaining.
Definitely a good story, and I am excited to see what happens, definitely not in line with the rest of what MS writes (not enough explosions, and more sex)
