I do not recommend
In Too Deep - Portia Da Costa

Look, I wasn't expecting stellar writing, I was expecting something fun, sexy, and probably a little trashy.  

 

There's a lot of sexy times in this story, and my reactions ranged from boredom, to eye rolling, to rereading a section b/c I was having so much trouble focusing that when I saw something like he did something "again" I couldn't recall him doing it in the first place, to just a general feeling of "please, no."  There were occasional snorts of amusement at things that weren't supposed to be funny.  The book starts out making fun of purple prose... and then is just filled with it.

 

I want to be grumpy about how the worst thing they can imagine is him going blind because of [plot twist] - but it's two non-disabled characters voicing pretty common terror about gaining an impairment, so that's just depressingly realistic.

 

never want to see someone refer to their genitals as "congested" as an indication of arousal.

 

I'm really not going to get in to dissecting the plot, or the lack of shits the main character apparently gives about keeping her job, or all the awkwardness of the book.  I'll say it's not worse than 50 Shades of Grey, but that's because there's less pretension to the plot and a lack of emotional abuse.

not so clever
In Too Deep - Portia Da Costa

please don't separately describe two different pieces of your wardrobe as clever in the same sentence.

i question how much she cares about her job
In Too Deep - Portia Da Costa

but anyways, i strongly recommend not getting it on on a sofa in the middle of the stacks, even if it's a basement level during open hours.  especially so energetically you break the sofa.

 

and lady, everyone knows you go down to see "professor hottie," and there's no way that area didn't reek of sex.

please never do any of this in the library
In Too Deep - Portia Da Costa

Please.  This book is like "lets take all the things Librarians really don't want to deal with at work and have one turned on by it!"

 

Though seriously, *why* is he stripped naked doing a sponge-bath in a public wash room?  Let alone, why is the door open.

 

Also, I NEVER want to read the word "congested" in conjunction with female genitalia when the author is trying to convey arousal.

 

This book is possibly earning a new shelving tag "It's only creepy if you're not hot"
