Here's another "gem" and remember, this is only, the FIRST CHAPTER-
"though he knew it was madness, the feral part of his soul was roaring that he needed to mount her, penetrate her, and fill her up with a hot, thick surge of come before she could get away"
Are you frigging kidding me? If this was any other genre book, a statement like that would be from a villain or criminal-NOT the hero! That is thinking about RAPE folks! I don't give a good gawd damn if he's a shape shifter or just some regular guy-that is some messed up stuff!
This is romance? Strange men sexually assaulting terrified women? Here's a thought-with all his supernatural smelling abilities, couldn't the hero smell that the poor woman was terrified? Call me crazy-but attempted rape is just not attractive to me, nor will I waste my time reading such garbage. Thank goodness I got this book to review and didn't pay money for it or I'd be one unhappy camper.
As an aside-
It seems to me that many Paranormal Romance writers are using the genre of Paranormal Romance, as an excuse to have their male leads behave like abusive "animals"-who bully, assault, or like in this case, pretty much attempt to rape the heroine. There are some who like that crap-and to each his own-but that's what we have EROTICA for. That way, if a reader doesn't want to read that kind of kinky stuff, they just stay away from erotica novels.
It is very "irksome", to say the least, the HARLEQUIN, for one, is merchandising novels like this one as "Paranormal Romance" when anyone with a brain will see that this book is erotica as soon as they read it. I for one, do not read Paranormal, or any genre of Romance, for this kind of "rape fantasy" bullshit. Leave it in the erotica section Harlequin.
