Smashwords book reviews by J V

  • Wicked Lovely (taboo short story) on March 14, 2011

    So after everything that's been going on Amazon I just had to read this and find out what all the fuss is about. I was surprised. The characters were realistic and three dimensional, and the story was overall very sweet. I don't know why this is labeled as an erotica because the sexual content does not out weigh the plot or merit the label. This isn't even an erotic romance. You could remove the sex and the story would still stand on its own. It really should just be categorized as a sensual romance. However, the writing itself is horrible. Being an editor, there were parts of this book that were difficult to understand because of the poor editing. It read like a CHILD'S story as opposed to an adult who has a grasp on mechanics. If the author were to edit and make this story presentable, I could see myself recommending it to my peers. It has all of the elements of a great story, it just needs some elbow grease.

    I really enjoyed the author's sense of humor. It made everything that much more enjoyable. The writing is superb. The editing is excellent. This is well worth the money.
