I loved the Cynster series, and Simon Prebble is incredible, BUT.... are you kidding? this new series has been a little ambitious in trying to add an element of drama, mystery that leaves you relying on each book to learn something new as the mystery unfolds -
the first two in this lot were ok - a little all over the place, but ok.
this one is comical!!! listen, we all like the trashy elements of Laurens books, but this is OTT (over the top) the woman is a nymph! and nothing happens that is worth listening to until chapter 17 and 2 hours to go!
I really hope that this is not representative of the next installment as that would really bite. this is the throw-away in this series, but sex scenes every 15 minutes may keep you interested until the final 2 hours.
the multi adjective language is really taken to a new level here... "she was absolutely, undeniably, irrevocably his, and he was unconditionally, beyond any doubt, forever and eternally hers... yada yada" it would go on and on! i think the book would be a good 2 hours shorter if just 2 out of 5 of the adjectives were left out throughout.
no character buildup at all and unrealistic on this guy, he was found almost dead on the beach by morning and vehemently demonstrating his manhood by midnite!
still in for the next one tho, and hoping this was a slip of the pen.

I usually enjoy Stephanie Laurens' books, but this one nearly defeated me. The first half of the book flirts with pornography. It seemed to me she didn't have much plot and needed to pad out her book. After countless encounters it was small wonder Logan and Lynette had little energy to devote to anything else. To be fair, the second half of the book carried the plot to the finish. Can I recommend this? Well, no - stick with the Bastian Club series or the Cynster series.
