A Bit Graphic
It is an entertaining book. I thought the premise was good, the characters were developed well, the plot development was done well...
I think it's the language that threw me off. Honestly, I really enjoy sex in novels. If I'm involved enough with the novel, I can even dismiss occasional vulgarity, especially if I feel like it fits the character or the scene. I don't expect all vaginas to be a woman's "core" and all penises to be a man's "shaft." I mean, it's okay to call it what it is or to use less pretty language to describe a hot moment (sex can be pretty feral, right?). It's realistic. However, there was so much... strong.. language and it felt so out of place that I couldn't really get lost in the story. I kept getting jolted back to reality every time there was a sexual thought or act.
So, yes, I feel like it's well spent as long as you're not easily distracted by vulgar language. You can return anything for any reason as an Audible member, so I'd definitely say it's worth giving it a try.
It depends on who I'd be recommending it to.
No, this is the first time. I really liked her narration.
