It is a good story spoiled IMHO by Ms Lauren's unfortunate tendency, in the "Black Cobra" series particularly, to excessive use of adjectives and adverbs in describing the emotions of her heroines, in their sexual reactions to the heroes.
Her earlier book series, were much more to the point without this ghastly, overblown, "gushing", language.
"Gushing" is the best word that I can think of to describe how it reads.
I don't believe anyone would experience these emotions quite so early in a relationship, and in the manner she now uses.
Her vocabulary seems to be limited with considerable use and overuse of the word "evocative" in a mostly inappropriate way.
Her earlier Cynster and Bastion Club series did not contain quite so much "gush" and read much more satisfactorily.
In fact, they were truly excellent reads in the main.
It is to be hoped that Ms Laurens will in future desist from these truly dreadful descriptions of the emotions and the sexual responses of her heroines as has sadly occurred in these later series.
You certainly know how to tell a good story - it's a pity that recently they are spoiled for this reader by your abuse of the English language.
Might I suggest you get better editors.
