Read in January, 2011

The barrier to entry this far into the series was too high for me to make it. Too many names and too much backstory flew by, I had to read in slow motion to get through the first few chapters. Even once I had picked out the characters to focus on out of all the rest, the emphasis is on the plot and the sex rather than the relationship, a strategy I couldn't stay interested past the first hundred or so pages. The writing was good, and maybe to a reader who was up to speed on the backstory, the lot would have been enough of a hook to keep going. I may try back at the beginning of the series later.

message 1: by ValerieC (new)

ValerieC It's a fun series, but starting at Book 1 is a good idea. I have read them all from Book 1 and I can't wait for each new book.

message 2: by Julia (new) - added it

Julia That's good to know, Valerie, I'll add book 1 to my TBR pile. I was definitely overwhelmed trying to jump in this far into the series.
