Globug and Hootie Need a Book
Baby, it’s cold outside! Time to snuggle up with a mug of hot chocolate (or a glass of wine!) and fall into a steamy, sexy book.
I don’t even know where to begin when writing this review. First off, I guess I should just go ahead and start by throwing it out there and admitting that I love books revolving around incest. …And no, I’m not harboring a secret crush nor am I having an affair with either my brother or my dad… Although, if Mr. Nolan was related to me like that I can’t promise that I wouldn’t be sexually involved with him. …On a more serious note though, the reason I’m saying this is because if you consider the taboo subject of incest along the lines of “gross” then you should probably just stay as far away from this book as you can.
With that being said, anyone who knows me knows that I avoid books revolved around sex, sex, and more sex. Those type of novels usually bore me to death; I’ve just never been a fan of books where the story-line fades in the background and becomes a filler to sex… BUT …I’m proud to say that this book worked for me in so many ways. After having an epiphany moment one night and realizing that the smutty side of me was needing something dirty to read, I just figured what better book to start with than one by an author who can be considered a God of all smuttiness.
I’ll be honest here- Since I don’t read too many erotica novels, this one was hard for me to rate. Sex is definitely the main focus in this book- And while it definitely worked and I would have given this book a perfect rating based on the steam factor alone, not having much character development or going into much depth when it comes to the story-line is the only reason this book didn’t get a solid five-stars from me or make it to my “favorites” shelf. With that being said though, that shock of an ending…
…There are no words. The major bombshell that was dropped came as a complete and utter shock to me. It was completely unexpected and I won’t lie… I absolutely loved it. A lot of books these days are just so predictable, so the fact that Selena Kit completely took me off guard with that twist seriously takes true talent.
I need to go ahead and warn all of you guys that this book has a lot… And I mean A LOT of steamy scenes. As a matter of fact, this novel is pretty much full of nothing but sex with every turn of the page- For me though, it was just what I was looking for at the time which is why I think this book ended up being such a huge hit for me. There was quite a bit of girl-on-girl action, among other things but it was all totally and completely hot in a very disturbing something must be wrong with me kind of way.
While this novel had some of the best and most descriptive sex scenes I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about, (no pun intended) I think it’s only fair for me to go into detail about the only thing I found lacking: Depth and character development. The relationship between the hero and heroine definitely seems like it was based entirely on sexual chemistry only. They both seemed to jump from that, to true love without any explanation… So while the steam factor was absolutely flawless… The story-line and depth definitely took a back-seat role.
This was my first book by Selena Kitt and it most definitely won’t be my last- She is by far worth all of the praise she’s received if this book is anything to go by. With that being said… I need a sequel! The abrupt ending after being exposed to that huge bombshell had me feeling incredibly sad to turn to the last page. I’ll end this review on one final note: Be cautious before going into this book. If you’re looking for a novel that strictly gets you hot and heated, then by all means this is most definitely the book for you! …But if you’re looking for a story with a detailed plot and characters, then this book will more than likely just be a disappointment. …If you’re feeling the need to take a ride on the wild naughty side then I’d highly advise you to dive head-first into this book!
