Sex ranting!

I enjoyed it but I didn't like this one quite as much as I enjoyed Slammed. I had to downgrade slightly for probably one of the most painful fade-to-black sex scenes in recent memory...I think I took it harder than Breaking Dawn! It's a good thing no one was home because I was raging and yelling something fierce!! *g*

I understand this is YA, but when you go as far as actually tie in the title of the book to the sex, I think you need to deliver a little more, especially when you've teased it out so much. Many of my IRL friends expressed the same frustration with Point of Retreat. To quote one, "As soon as I finished the book, I said, 'Where's the fanfiction?!?!'"

I did love revisting this great couple and seeing them as a family unit, but a slight downgrade is warranted for SUPER frustrating fade-to-black sex scene and a few turn of events I thought were too coincidental...
