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. ^.~
NB: Review originally posted 20-Dec-2012 on GR but actually read in June 2012 (minor edits made post-import to BL). In retrospect, this was probably one of my earliest brushes w/ NA-PNR. Which is kinda surprising, given the publisher.
Heat Level/Content: sensual/steamy (??)
Publication Date: May 2011
Series Info: Secret McQueen #1
I realise that many others liked this book. Some really liked it. So to say that I didn't click with the character of Secret, her background history, or this storyline would be an understatement. For me, there were too many loosey-goosey stuff.(show spoiler)
I won't address the rather vague fated mates concept.
Also, I didn't find Secret particularly "kick-ass", especially given the frequent (and sometimes self-acknowledged) TSTL moments. And due to the number of times that I thought "huh?" or "wtf?" or "oh, fecking kidding me", I think that I finished the book in the hopes that something, anything would save the overall story. Only to get a huge *eyeroll* at the end.
And I got books #1-3 as a gift... *sigh*
