Reining Men, Em Petrova

Reining Men, Em Petrova
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
This was a shortish read at around 190 pages, but very erotic and sensual. It didn’t really have the depth of story I’d like though, maybe if I’d read books one and two I’d have got more from it. Though each book is a stand alone one, clearly they are all connected, and focus on the ranch and characters running it, and I expect the build up of tension between Jack and Paul was started earlier than this book.
I liked all three main characters, they were a good mix and the sex scenes were very hot and well written. Sometimes the potential is there between characters but fizzles out through poor writing, not so here, its builds up nicely and then just explodes off the page with erotic passions letting loose, to get all of them entwined in a way that they needed to keep for good.
Though I enjoyed this read, it wasn’t a high star one for me because although the sex was hot, I just felt that the story backing it was like a short interlude of time, ( in fact its was only a week) and I just couldn’t feel that it was realistic. I’d have liked to know more about the characters to feel empathy with them, but as its a shortish read then of course something needs to go, and they just felt fairly superficial to me. I liked that they got together, but if they hadn’t I wouldn’t have felt really saddened in the way I do when a character really resonates with me. I need to feel there, in the story not just a voyeur onlooking events.If you like short and hot reads then this is for you, for me I need a bit more story and character realism.
Stars: 3 – a short and very erotic read.

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 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.
