'Hot' scenes just left me cold
on 13 September 2010
Having read several books of this genre and with good reviews for this book, I had high hopes but unfortunately I was disappointed. Yes, there were a few OK sex scenes, but nothing that I would describe as even approaching 'hot'.
Of course liking or disliking a book is entirely subjective but to me the 'action' seemed false, stilted, rather cold and calculating and the plot was weak.
In particular, the (in my opinion, rather desperate and 2 dimensional) lady in the menage-a-trois seemed to be little more than the (sex)'toy' mentioned in the title. To me she seemed to be just there as the author's weak excuse for the two polar opposite men to indulge their obvious bi-sexual preferences and attraction to each other under the guise of 'helping' and 'protecting' the woman caught in the middle. And what a cliched non-surprise their descriptions, job and names were too!
