Would have been a higher rating. . .
At Last - Jill Shalvis

But for the heroine's icktastic backstory. (Also having a teen come along that was in a similar (but less gross) situation was a little too on the nose.) And my not really feeling that the hero and heroine had much of a relationship beyond sex. It wasn't as bad as other books, there was a bit more talking and they had chemistry, but let's just say that all of the "this is more than sex" declarations both made read as protesting too much like other books I've pointed out in the past. I must praise the sex scenes though! No cringe-inducing euphemisms. They were clear and most of them were of a judicious length—not too long. (Except one where there was a confusing chapter break in the middle.) I'm still flirting with making the rating a three instead of that half. We'll see.

Everything he wants to do with her vagina.

How long she has wanted to do it.

Her feeling on all the parts of his body.

What his body looks like.

How erect his penis is.

How big and erect his penis is.

What color his penis is when it is super erect.

What his penis looks like as it is erect.

What the veins of his penis look like as he is getting erect.

What his penis feels like in her hands.

What his penis tastes like.*

What his penis feels like in side her.

What both their genitalia looks like as he moves in and out of her.

What both their genitalia looks like when he pulls out of her.

What the build up to orgasm feels like.

What the orgasm feel like and do to them.

How much they want to do all the sex again.

 

What I don't know . . .

 

Why in the hell these two think they're in love with each other.

 

 

 

Yeah, graphic (though not as graphic as the actual book) but I think represents my problem here well. This book was all show when it came to sex but nothing but tell when it came to them being in "love". They knew each other nearly two years ago in Syria is as much as we're given. In this book they're either talking about the mission or sex. There was one little spate of getting to know each other's backgrounds. "He loved her and now he wanted to know everything about her." Sigh. Okay.

 

Oddly, there was a secondary couple that met during the book and THEY had real conversation and I can see what they have in common and would like about each other outside of sexual attraction. Why couldn't we get any of that for the primary couple? I might listen to the next book if the library gets it if it is this secondary couple hoping that we'll get even more of a foundation since there is at least already one in place for that story.

 

The other major problem with future books in this series, aside from knowing there'll be an overabundance of graphic sex supplanting story and unnecessary POV jumping is this strange thing of Walker describing the women as so diminutive they look like children. Thankfully the heroine of this book was adult sized. But the hero of the secondary couple initially thought the heroine was a little boy. Then called her a sexy cherub. Uh, ew. At the end of the book the historian they hired showed up and it's clear she's going to be the heroine of a future book and she's described as looking like a little girl at first. What is that? That's so creepy. Especially when they're going to be paired with these massive former Navy SEALS. It kind of reminded me of seeing Hayden Panettiere and her husband at first. See? But worse because it's going to be so graphically described.

 

Meh. We'll see. If the library gets any more of this series in and whether or not I run out of other things to listen to I might listen to the next book.

Finished — Uhmm . . .
Phantom Instinct - Meg Gardiner

If this is supposed to be a stand alone then the ending leaves huge damn loose ends dangling out there for all time. I'm having a hard time understanding why Gardiner chose to do that. If this isn't supposed to be standalone then she really needs to make that clear.

Phantom Instinct - Meg Gardiner

“There’s a real threat. It doesn’t come from me,” she said.

Finally, he looked at her. “Then from who?”

“His name is Maddox.”

“First name?”

“Travis.”

“Is he in the system? Have an arrest record?”

“Yes.”

 

Haaahahaha, this is killing me!
