Karma♥Bites’s Mercurial Reads

Eclectic, cross-genre mood reader (but of late, mostly erotica, romance & para/UF—including m/m & ménage).  At times, the realities of life & work tend to dictate how UNreal a world I choose for an escape.

Fair warning:  I may walk like a lady but I cuss like a salty sailor. ^.~

The Mating - Nicky Charles NTM author so decided to try THE MATING back in 2010. I think that this book may appeal more to YA/NA readers or those just starting to read PNR.

Not too bad for a free read, but I didn't find it particularly romantic or suspenseful. Main characters were a bit on the bland side and cardboard-ish and IMO, their romantic relationship was developed rather awkwardly. The plot became very predictable, with little guessing as to the "baddies". And unfortunately, I had a huge eyeroll moment towards the end.

Still, there was enough in this author's writing that I may read another book to see if the subsequent books are stronger.
