I said in a previous post that Sierra Simone is quickly becoming my go to author for erotica but my issues with the last series of hers that I read almost stopped me from picking this book up. It is the first book in a series that is still being published so I decided to take my chances. Like the first book in the “New Camelot Trilogy,” this book is a great start…I just hope the quality continues.
Whoa boy, this book series. Sierra Simone has become my go-to for well-written erotica and this book didn’t disappoint if you are looking for something very, very sexy. If you are looking for a super dramatic, smut filled romance, look no further. However, by book 3, I was beginning to tire of all the sex and needed some more story. I would recommend this series but didn’t feel the need for it to go on as long as it did.
I have a lot of thoughts about this book and went back and forth on my rating. This was the last title I read for my genre meeting on erotica and it definitely fit that genre. It was a quick read but there were some unsettling topics and themes that may be hard for certain readers. I would only recommend this book if you are looking for an erotic book and are comfortable with the topic of rape fantasies.
This was a book that I read for my reading round table erotica meeting and this was definitely erotic. So much so that most of the book was just sex scenes and there was very little plot or character development. If you are looking for porn on a page, this is your book.
As I stated in a previous post, I don’t read a lot of romance. I don’t necessarily have anything against the genre, but my feeling has always been that it is hard to find “good” books in the genre. Having said that, I was very happy when my reading group chose romance for our genre study 2018-2019 because it has given me the opportunity to explore this genre thoroughly and hopefully find some titles that I enjoy as well as books and authors I would feel comfortable recommending to patrons. This month’s theme is erotica and the first book I read is “Off the Clock.” It took me a while to find a book that a) sounded interesting and had good reviews and b) I could find in a library somewhere. Erotica is still a genre that makes many libraries uncomfortable. This book has a pretty good rating on Goodreads and Roni Loren has a good reputation in the romance community so I was excited to read it. Overall, I enjoyed this book, even though I had some issues with the plot and the writing.
Wow, wow, wow. I am not too familiar with the erotica genre and was looking for one that was well written, with interesting characters, and an actual plot line. I got lucky with this book.
