Don't degrade the book because of that scene state that you enjoy it if you did but make it known that you didn't like that scene about the book...
its like i always say a bad reivew can really downplay a good book and a good review can really up play a bad book, because of some of the bad reviews for this book I almost didn't read it but i'm glad i change my mind
i'm glad i bought it because if i had listen to most of the reveiws and not bought it i would have missed out on a good book...
Having now read the book, I am not entirely surprised at some of the criticisms. The sex scenes are definitely unusual in this genre. The fact that this book pre-dates the 50 Shades phenomena makes it all the more interesting. The love play does have some slight overtones of erotica but so mild in comparison that they would hardly raise a blip on the current radar.
What I found interesting was the fact that those scenes were love-play with lots of fun and humour between the protagonists. Considering the dark pasts of both hero and heroine, that is actually very significant and I found it very moving.
This is a story about two very wounded people who believe they will never find love and happiness and safety with a significant other. I loved watching them interact with all the bravado and masks that were no match for love when it found them.
At times the writing was a little uneven, mostly with POV changes, but on the whole I found it a very satisfying and emotional read. The Virgin in the title was a most unusual virgin to my notions but it worked in the context of the story.
Excuse me? Pain is "healthy" for two people who had a horrific past? Um, no.
This was a terrible story with an awfully sadistic point of view. Some people really don't understand how bad bringing that particular thing into play in the bed. For passionate- yet tender-hearted readers, which is what we all are since we're reading Harlequin and not authors like Rachel Kramer Bussel, it's not fun. It's not sexy. It's not "healthy."
The spanking ruined an entire book. It's extremely unrealistic for people who had traumatic pasts to like this. And I hate that there are some authors who really don't understand that. I've read many books where this has happened, and I wonder, why do these writers think that someone who was abused, or came from a tragic and hurtful past, would actually like a spanking? That's what caused the pain and trauma in the first place!
Skip this book. It's just ridiculous, and absolutely unreal.
