    Big letdown.

    Review by Emmarae:

    Since I love geek romances, this was a big letdown. The blurb shows an excellent idea for a story, but in my opinion the book didn't follow the synopsis. Jewel was interested in Ben from the beginning--there was no convincing to be found.

    I think the author was trying to write erotica romance, however the story seemed to conflict itself. It jumps quickly to body parts and fantasizing, without setting up the characters. This is fine if you're writing an erotic novella, and the book is centered on erotica and chemistry; however it's interrupted with attempts at romance with no foundation that makes it seem like two different authors not cooperating with each other. You wind up with something I found crass that is neither erotic nor romantic.

    The writing style was unimaginative and repetitive, especially for something with less than 120 pages. Much of the physical action didn't flow or make sense-where they stood or sat or walked. Scenes that might have been interesting--dates where the author could have allowed the characters to get to know each other--were just spent fantasizing and ogling. We wind up at the end with Ben in love with all these qualities in Jewel we haven't even been shown glimpses of.

    If you want a steamy, geeky short story, check out Opposites Attract by Cat Johnson. If you want something short and erotic, I downloaded Who's the Boss by Ella Vines (free) the other day and a dozen other free novellas at ARe. If you want something romantic and steamy, check out Ann Christopher, Flesa Black, Darah Lace, or Shawn Lane.
