Bombshell's Books

I've been an avid reader for as long as I can remember and a romance junkie since the twelfth grade. These days I read M/M romance novels almost exclusively. I can't help it - I love boys who love other boys! If you don't believe in equality or that all love is beautiful, we probably won't have a lot to talk about. But, if you do, feel free to make a friend request, comment on a review, or recommend your favourite guilty pleasure. I'd love to hear from you!

The Perfect Play

The Perfect Play - Jaci Burton *** DNF'd at 60% ***

I really, REALLY tried to enjoy this contemporary M/F romance (what's not to love about a sweet, sexy, generous athlete that fucks like a porn star?!). Unfortunately, while there's no denying the steam level of those sex scenes, both main characters were completely flawless - the kind of flawless that bores a body to tears. I think that by 60% Burton was finally aiming to give her characters a little more depth than a puddle, but by then it was a case of too little, too late; I'd given up caring and there was no coming back from that.

This book has languished on my "currently reading" shelf for nearly a month as I tried to screw up the motivation to make it through the last 100 pages, but I just can't do it. Reading should be FUN and this one just didn't do it for me.

No more hetero romances for me for a while (at least not until these authors learn to write better leading female characters).
