Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I was away on a yacht for my holiday break (thanks to some very kind friends). My friends/family were reading Agatha Christie & Georgette Heyer
Far better choices.
Let me explain. I have read & enjoyed some of Crusie’s romances in the past when she was a fresh, funny, new voice in romance. I may still find some of her work amusing. But this one (which has won a lot of awards) hasn’t aged well.
Our Hero has unusual definitions of what constitutes sex and consent when the woman is drunk. In fact Our Heroine doesn’t get to consent to much at all, given the unbelievable way her younger sister pushes her around about trivial matters like [ Sophie’s career and car. One of Sophie’s main turn ons sex with the risk of discovery isn’t mine.
One of the other romances made me feel uncomfortable and queasy.
Large and mostly boring caste of
Some of the sex was pretty hot though.
I’m not abandoning Crusie altogether, but my faith has been shaken.
