This could have been a good read. It started out fine, but it just drowns you in smut and really crude dialogue. I wouldn't bother with this one. It's not worth what you have to put up with to get to the meat of the story. Then there's the problem of the protagonist, whom you despise even more with every page you turn. He's a total scumbag, and it's hard to care about anything that happens to him.
