For The Love of Quinn, Now and Forever, Book One, Tammy Dennings Maggy
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

I love long novels and this one is 628 pages so was looking forward to a good erotic romance. Sadly though I found that I think I’d have enjoyed it more if it was shorter.
There were long periods when nothing really seemed to be happening, where the text added nothing to the story.
I liked Quinn, and her lovely family, thought Steve was just a real gentleman and almost too good to be real, but his explanations for his actions were genuine and rang true. I think with his history he was content to enjoy life as it came, and not strive for what he felt he wouldn’t get. He just wanted Quinn happy.
Jake, well he annoyed me, he did all the things he promised he wouldn’t, treated Quinn appallingly and if I was her I’d have given up on him long past. So OK that wouldn’t work well in the book 🙂 but I really felt given their lack of real contact that she hung on when anyone sensible as she was would have given up. I didn’t understand why he kept Quinn dangling while going out with Iris, who was a real piece of work. Instead of seeing sad, lost romance, soul mates parted etc all I saw was a selfish jerk giving a lovely lady the run-around and a great man (Steve) holding back because of that. I know Jake gave his reasons – they weren’t enough for me though. Quinn was intelligent, so why she let herself be treated like this didn’t work well for me. I know about her history but instead of sorry for her I wanted to shake her, to shout “stop being a doormat”….
The erotica, well there’s sex in the book, lots of it but for me it takes more than just lots of hot sex to make a book erotic. The scenes were so similar, basic hot sex, little foreplay, nothing really adventurous or different, that to me its a romance with sex scenes not an erotic romance. Fine definition but that’s how I see it.
Stars: three. A decent read but not as good as I’d expected.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
