The Darkest Touch - Gena Showalter

The Darkest Touch - Gena Showalter 

 

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet…

Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.

She is Keeley Cael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean the end for her, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.

Vaginal Fantasy Book Club #27

The lovely ladies touched on many of the things I didn't like about the main pick... except none of them seemed to have paid much attention to the character description of Lucien. I'm pretty sure I'd of enjoyed it more if I had selective memory with this one.

 

I don't think I can relate to anything they thought was positive... one of those "are you sure we read the same book" type of deals. The hangout was also kind of awkward again, not sure if they were just too sick or drunk but something felt off. o_o;

 

  • The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter - My Review - 2 Stars

 

So sad that the android category did not win the poll for next months pick, again! Another myth type book, I don't know if I can take it. I think I've had enough about gods, angels/demons, myths and fairy tales. Next months pick is Daughter of the Forest (The Sevenwaters Trilogy, Book 1) by Juliet Marillier  - now I'm off to skim reviews to see if it is worth my time.

I'm reading The Darkest Kiss (book #2 of the Lords of the Underworld series) ATM and, sadly, I am hating it. The female and male lead are just UGH! annoying. It is reading like book #1 done over again with different characters (same love at first sight bullshit). Worse, the characters don't have any redeeming qualities so I am not laughing at all at the cartoon nature that won at least half a star for book #1.

 

Why did I post a video along with this post? The visual of this video is how I am seeing things in this book. Anya (the female lead) is a combination of both Grimes and the pink haired girl in the video. Sorry. This is not romantic or erotic. This is cringe cringe cringe. FUUUU!!! the virgin card is being played again in this one too and there is a slut shaming vibe I'm getting... someone save me!

 

And, don't get me wrong either. I love Grimes... I listened to Visions on repeat a couple years ago so much that when I just listened to this video I was brought back to other books that I actually enjoyed.

     

Sure I rated each of these 3 stars, but that's good IMHO. I'd recommend them and am happy with the memories I can conjure from them. The book I'm reading now, no. Just NO. It's as bad as Dark Duet #2 and I'm still trying to scrub that book from memory. Le sigh~
