it didn't live up to the first, and that too was hard to get into.

While this installment of the Carpathians is engaging, it didn't live up to the first. It is darker, Jacques (who is the charming younger brother in book one) has been held and tortured for sevens years and left for dead. He comes out of the experience barely hanging on to his sanity and with a vicious streak a mile wide. The story still has it's twists and turns along with an interesting (if rather dysfunctional) love story, which keeps it moving and would earn it a 3.5 star rating. Will someone please explain to me how a couple can have sex when he's on top and she's on the bottom and her jeans are pushed down but still around her ankles? Because frankly, I really don't think that is humanly possible. If she was bent over, alright. Or if they were really stretchy pants with an elastic waistband, maybe. Or if the jeans are only around one ankle but have completely slipped off the other, definitely. But if they're hiding out in a secret Carpathian cave and they are immediately overcome by a wave of lust and can't even remove all their clothes before going horizontal, the Laws of Blue Jeans Physics makes having sex impossible if both her ankles are encased in denim.
So if you have any undeniable proof that this is possible, please share with me stat, because I'm giving myself a headache trying to make it work LOL
