Heavy on Sex light on Plot
Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2021
The first book with less sex between Nyfain & Finley was a lot better. A LOT BETTER. They were actually characters I wanted to get to know.
I think Breene pretty much used every dirty word in existence, as I highlighted above; plus verbs and adverbs to round out the action. Plus everything sexual her imagination could put in a book. OMG nothing sexual is off limits in this book. Heroine even reminisce about her female on female sexual experience, was this supposed to be sexy it wasn’t. Not because it was between two females, but it seemed that they author just decided to throw it in. Then Finley & Nyfain go about acting out sex scenes in romance books. I have to honestly say if you cut out the sex in this book the plot is extremely THIN, and it comes at the end of the book. In fact it’s not a fantasy romance it is a pure sex romp. If I would’ve know Breene was going to just write a sex romp I might have passed on book two; as I expected a plot to go with the sex. Breene can write books with plots as her other books attest. Yes, Breene writes hotter than hell sex; but when the sex is the be all and end all of a story it actually gets redundant. I honestly kept thinking they could be training people to fight, and shore up their defenses if they stopped knocking boots so blasted much. Except for a scene about the other villages and the end the book was nothing but sex.
I did read this via kindle unlimited but bought the audiobook.
