Before I begin, let me state: I am a male reading erotica for females, I understand that.
The story itself is interesting, and had a lot of potential to it despite the feeling that it was less important than the actual erotica. The characters were interesting despite what little we are given, and though the muder mystery gets solved with next to no effort, I do understand that it's there to drive the erotica.
Which brings me to the parts that as a male took me out of the story. Never in my life, in any of the fights I have taken part of, erotic or not, have I managed to maintain an erection during it. It's not part of the biology for a male to keep one when he feels his life is in danger. However, in this story, the male lead despite being assaulted by a hot and lovely woman, manages to keep his through the encounter. Erotic, yes. Realistic, no.
Then there was the fact that the female lead falls in love the instant she has sex, as does the man. I know this is a fantasy, and due to the legnth of the piece pretty much required, but it's also unrealistic. Yes, yes, I know, it's a romantic erotic piece, these things happen in such pieces.
Those were not my only issues with the story. Pillow puts a lot of different things into a very small story: Superheros, super science, secret agents, vampires...you see where I am going with this? For the story's size, there is just too much being crammed into such a tiny area. Had she placed fewer items into it and concentrated on those, the story would have been a lot stronger. And I want to stress here that there IS a storyline that had a lot of potential behind this piece. Had the plot been expanded upon, their relationship more than just a meet and f*ck, this would have been a wonderful story to read, and well worth another star or two.
I was going to mark this a three star rating though I felt it was a 2.5 star book. What made me go for 2 stars instead was the fact that this book is not worth the $4.99USD I paid for it. Had it been longer, or the story expanded and fleshed out, it would have easily been worth the $5, but where it stands now, it unfortunatly is not.
Overall, I wouldn't purchase this book again and don't recommend it. At the price it's offered at for what you get is just not worth it.
