Forbidden Desires, Book 1
I don’t read a lot of self-published books, primarily because they generally aren’t edited properly, and this book just reinforces that.
I was stuck at home for several days because of Hurricane Irma, and I had gotten an advance copy and it was on my Kindle so I read it. The best thing I can say about it was it was a quick read.
I didn’t like the characters, I didn’t understand them and they felt entirely two-dimensional to me. The main character is Gavin, who owns an escort service with his brothers, and Emma, a librarian. Of course. I didn’t even like the sex scenes much, they just felt trite and so done already. Like when the dominant calls the librarian, “Pet.” Yech.
It ends in the middle of the story, the better to get you to buy the next book in the series I suppose, but I didn’t care enough about any of it to look for more.
Ryan has hopped on the 50 Shades of Grey/E.L. James bandwagon, and apparently there just aren’t enough of these books to satisfy demand. To be fair, this book has 4.5 stars on Amazon and other review sites.
