Of course, this is all discovered through his eyes, as he reads this journal. The second problematic aspect is the characterization of the hero and heroine. First of all, both of them have parents who are complete crap.
So both of them have issues. The kind of complete crap the parents are, and the particular issues they have formed just seemed downright cliched to me - the "My mother was untrustworthy, so I learned never to trust a woman" kind of thing, that I find a tiresome psychological shorthand. Separately considered, both the hero and heroine are extreme representations of ideals - he is the intimidatingly beautiful and suave sophisticate who rents a Ferrari when he comes to town can you even do that?
He is overcome shortly after meeting her with a desire to possess her; she is shy and lacking in self-esteem. This just makes him more protective, more a mentor-figure. I suppose that this was somewhat purposeful - the other characters get extremely short shrift because other authors are going to be writing books about them in their own parts of the series that this book belongs to; also, the book is titled Awaken the Senses so I suppose I should have guessed how significant sex is going to be.
What comes between them seems merely to be the set-up for the next sex scene. This makes all the rest - setting, plot, characterization of everyone - seem perfunctory.
Not turned on. Sick to my stomach mortified. I was looking forward to an enjoyable read. I found myself more distracted by the artificiality of the whole story. Other readers may find this boring especially those who like plots with lots of conflicts. I find this easy to read and pretty much upfront with little confrontations, no bitchy villains and stuffs.
Awaken: Awaken to Pleasure\Awaken the Senses
Kazrara Charlotte Ashton has always been on the outside looking in—until she meets worldly Alexandre Dupree. As much as I enjoyed reading about Charlotte Ashton and Alexandre Dupree, this book feels massively incomplete to me. Irritated at the prospect of having his solitude disturbed, he paused in the act of rising to his feet, wondering who else was awake at this nalinj. I later discovered that this was part of a nalinl all written by different authors, and that probably explained why I had trouble understanding how some of the characters in the book were related to each other. One of my all time favorites This was one of the first books I read by Malibu Singh and I enjoyed it so tue that I wanted to read more of her stories. It made rational thought difficult.
