100 days : Lara Adrian - Review
This series has been on my TBR list forever so I thought I'd get stuck into book 1, finally.
So, the good stuff... Great writing style and characterisations of h and H. Loved the side characters too. Lara certainly knows how to write sex.
But... and its a big but... I know this is supposed to be a steamy hot erotic romance, but there was far too much sex. So much so that I skipped half of it. A triple orgasm here... another triple (no, make it a quad) there. It started getting kinda yawn and eww.) If this had been toned down and more plot points expanded, it would have been a better read. I understand I'm probably in the minority here, as most readers rave about this series, but I do like a happy medium. I totally get new relationships are often highly sexual, but I don't think as a reader I needed to know about every single kiss and intimate touch that went down 24/7...
There was very little tension, other than sexual.
I also became annoyed that she was somehow being punished (if that was the right word) at the end, for not being open and honest about her past (understandably, she didnt want to tell her brief billionaire fling that her mother was in prison for murdering her stepdad and that she was a lowly bar worker being piad to apartment sit). Our H never told her sod all about his murky past, but just clams up when she asks him anything. And thats entirely ok with her? And fair? He has all the cards because shes poor and infatuated with him. He is stunning, has heaps of money and a onesided cold heart.
He gives her 100 nights of his precious control in book 2? Id tell him where to poke it.
I wont be reading book 2 because I got bored with the characters bed-romping in book 1 and I guess itll be the same story in book 2, even if the H starts upping the control and domination, I dont like the dynamics between the two otherwise. Sorry I couldnt be more supportive. But just no. 3 stars. (for the excellent writing style alone.)
