    Back when I read The Fetish Box, Part One: Open All Night I deci

    Back when I read The Fetish Box, Part One: Open All Night I decided to give the series a chance since it is usually hard to establish a proper series especially a serialized novella. However, I like my stories to make sense and the characters and their actions to be somewhat realistic. Sadly, this is not the case with this novella.

    This installment starts off right where the previous novella left off with Mary ready to have sex with John. After having been left hanging in the previous novella I was anticipating this scene and all it would entail only to be left disappointed by it. For a woman who proclaimed to be a virgin Mary sure didn't hesitate much when it came to shedding her clothes and straddle John. And the don't even get me started on the lack of chemistry between those two. It was non-existent. The whole scene felt rushed and anti-climatic with no passion whatsoever and no connection palpable between Mary and John.

    I would like to say that it improved from that point on but what followed was a whole set of events that truly irritated and confused me. The attack that occurred in the story, which was a great concept to add, lacked in its execution adding nothing much to the story other than the fact that it brought Mary to the store where she got it on again with John.

    I did enjoy the interactions between the secondary characters and the introduction of Max's brother to the cast of characters. And for what is worth I do like John, a lot. I just don't think Mary is being fair to him by having sex with him but still lusting after Max.

    Having said all this, I recognize that maybe this is story is not for me. I don't think I have to like a heroine for a story to be enjoyable, but I have to at least respect her and understand where she is coming from in order for me to be interested in her story. It was because of this that I could not connect to her or understand her behavior all throughout the story. This only frustrated me to the point that I didn't want to continue reading. However, that was not something I had to worry about for once again I was left hanging in the end.

    The Fetish Box, Part Two: What Escapes is the second novella in The Fetish Box series and it can't be read as a stand alone. I noticed that there is a third installment due March 25th and I am sorry to say that I will not be picking that one up.

    I received this title from Pocket Star through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
