Downloaded this book for free today at Amazon. Is a very short, erotica novelette that features a young, billionaire business man and a 26-year-old online, fashion magazine editor. They have enough chemistry with one another capable of scorching the entire New York City in one single sweep. I like the actual plot of the story, unfortunately is too short and rushed that there is no time for the characters to develop and in the end I really couldn't care much for them. Also, I don’t look at grammar when I’m reading for pleasure, but sometimes some errors just jump off the page. For example, right at the beginning of the story [the emphasis is mine]:
Cate swiped two glasses of champagne from a waiter that was passing by and our eyes scanned the room accessing the crowd. (Kindle Locations 15-16)I’m guessing that the girls were assessing the crowd. Then, almost three quarters into the story:
I nodded to each of them with a smile, and began fidgeting with my hands under the table. Carter noticed, and took his warm hand in mind, holding it in his lap. (Kindle Locations 333-334)There really are not that many errors, but the few that are, are a bit obvious. In all, I wish the story had been longer. I don’t mind a steamy erotica story, but I like them with a little bit more plot to them.
The author left a message at my Goodreads review (this same review) of her novel thanking me for discovering the typos and letting me know that she'll correct them.
