Merry Hits Rock Bottom,
This review is from: Divine Misdemeanors: (Merry Gentry 8) (Hardcover)
Merry is back Stateside in self imposed exile working as a detective with her harem of guys. Yet life as it is won't let up and with the intrigue of a new case for her to investigate as lesser demi fae are murdered in a pattern reminiscent of an obscure fairy tale. Hounded by the media Merry has to fight tooth and claw to get to the bottom of everything whilst dealing with her pregnancy. Whilst this seems like ideal material the major problem with this offering is that the whole tale is more sexploitation over plot which whilst constantly getting the character off didn't do a damn thing for me. Almost as if Laurell had a kernel of an idea and with deadlines really didn't think it through just bulking it out with unnecessary alongside standard sex scenes almost as if she had them all ready just to insert (if you'll excuse the pun) to fill up page quota's.
At the tales conclusion I really felt cheated and ripped off with this offering from Laurell, so much so that I am seriously considering giving up on this series as I'm getting fed up of the transformation from Merry the Woman to Merry the Walking Mattress.
