Eh, it's only a dollar how bad can it be?

Even if it's bad...
It is! least there is smut. Even bad smut is entertaining
Or so I thought.

Besides, it's only 118 pages. Surely I can make it through something so short
Actually... I couldn't, can't. Ciana Stone has an interesting idea of vamps being aliens and having fertility issues. The problem is, rather than writing a story about said blood sucking aliens, she apparently wrote a paper about them. That is, this "story" is all tell and no show. In addition, the characters have the personality of a cardboard box and the sex scenes are just... painful.

"His thrusts became more urgent and forceful and her cries deeper but he would not gentle his movements. Nor did she encourage him to do so. This was mating at its most primitive. Here was the moment he'd waited for. Her complete surrender. Now she would become inextricably his."

Oh yeah, talk boring to me.

After the initial excitement of purchasing a Nook... and then discovering the ridiculous price of most ebooks, along with the fact that there are many more deals on Amazon than there are on Barnes and Noble... I've decided to be adventurous and read more self-pubs and inexpensive stuff. Granted, not everyone is a ridiculously talented Susan Ee, but there must be other gems out there. And, at the same time I have to acknowledge the fact than in these self-pub and unknown author adventures there are going to be many more duds than there are great finds.

This is not a great find. Far from it.

Flannery "He would not gentle his movements." Gentle is awkward as a verb. It's so cool that you're plowing through a lot of self-pubs. I look forward to the recs.

Oh, you are hopeful :D

Until reading this novel, I wasn't even aware 'gentle' could be used as a verb. In an older book, perhaps it wouldn't seem so out of place, but in a modern novel... I agree with you, it is awkward.
