DNF at 27% — Wicked Appetite OMFG
Wicked Appetite - Janet Evanovich,Lorelei King
This may be the fastest I've ever wanted to flounce a book. In the first minute it two I wanted to be done, but I was in the shower and I would, of course, give the story more of a shot than that.
 
But this was just awful. 
 
Which is a huge disappointment. I was really looking forward to this since every other Janet Evanovich has been enjoyable for me and had little to no sex, which I desperately needed after the last two audiobooks I've listened to that were just sexsexsexsexsexsex.
 
So I had high hopes.
 
Dashed.
 
It's first person, which is the worst to begin with, but there's just no competence to the writing. The whole beginning of the book was the biggest info dump I've ever read and was boring to boot. The characters were flat as cardboard, the dialogue produced physical cringes more than once, and everything had to be described in detail like a mind-numbingly boring shopping list. Every part of this was so juvenile. It read like a kid's first attempt at writing YA. Twilight was more nuanced. 
 
Which just says it all right there.

". . . spilling his seed deep inside Lola's valley."

You should have seen my reaction to that one. WHAT IS WITH THIS BOOK?! Because this is the THIRD story now. Not to mention the always sexy "seed". 

 

Holy crap.

". . .and guided his missile to its target, already hot and wet."

 

 

Seems like maybe I should have seen this before, but missile though? Really? This book, you guys.

 

 

I should clarify that both of these posts have come from the second story in the anthology, A Sexy Christmas Carol. I really hope the last story in this book is good.
