Climbing Stories

I love politics & I am a bit of a history buff. I have a weakness for romance & that includes erotic smut! I'm a serious reviewer, but I can read almost anything. A new genre or a deft writer can make a story sing.

Saving Dallas - Kim Jones In my quest for more biker/MC romances...

This features a hero who is a MC President, builds houses, is an entrepreneur, a bad boy and a high society bachelor (who gets invited to things like governor balls). The story also features a heroine who is an owner of a multi-million dollar real estate business, an orphan, a control freak, a bitchy boss, a badass chick(she knows guns and how to fight), and a closet submissive. Now, tell me, do these main characters sound like superheroes?

LOL, the storyline reads like any biker/MC romance-girl meets Jax look-alike & crazy, steamy, smutty semi D/s action ensues. Yet, a bit of intrigue and insight into the inner-workings of club life tries to come out and steal the show, but never.quite.does.

This is because the author doesn't know if she wants to describe grit or glamor, so she rocks the reader unnaturally between both. Awkward. It is also because the conflict is built up like a trail of breadcrumbs until by 60% of the book you actually become aware that there IS a bigger conflict other than the heroine's indecision over whether or not she wants to be involved with an MC President.

Then, there is a series of actions, the last of which results in the hero saving the heroine, but not before some serious clues start to come together, FINALLY opening the suspense. And yup you know it...a cliffhanger! By cliffhanger standards, it's a medium one, but not minor because you know there's a big secret between the main couple, the overall conflict isn't resolved and sooooo...this author is selling her sequel by gimmick.

Some good editing, cutting out of unnecessary ornaments adorning the characters and adding in...oh, I don't know...a whole story instead of 1/2 of one would have shown me, the reader, more 'effin respect! LOL

****and now I have to wonder if [b:Seize Me|17976745|Seize Me (Breakneck, #1)|Crystal Spears|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1370315414s/17976745.jpg|25203742] would have redeemed itself to be equal to this or still worse IF I would have finished it, LMAO! But I won't torture myself by finding out**** Biker/MC romances must be difficult to get right, I suppose:D
