Hard & Fast, A Rules to Break Novel, Ana Gabriel
Genre:  Erotica, Romance.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I love rock star/film star romances so was looking forward to this. sadly though its one that doesn’t work for me. I’m sure others will love it – after all we all enjoy different things but it was a big fail for me.
Rose, I started off admiring her, going for her dreams, and not just settling in to an easy job at home.  I couldn’t understand though how – when she was three months in arrears with rent – she managed to go shopping quickly when she needed to go to an event with Cole. And how come she only had her interview clothes, and yet started that day and never went home for more? What did she wear next day( s ) It was little niggles like that which irritated me several times.
She thinks she’s in a dream working for big star Cole Dean, but gets brought back to earth when in her first night he calls for her in the early hours, and she walks in on him naked, giving oral sex to a model and wants her to pass him a condom! What?! As if that’s not enough to put her off, the very next night she’s having sex with him. This comes from the girl who moans she can’t get a role as an actress because she won’t go the “casting couch” way. She tells herself “no more” and then within a day – within hours sometimes, she’s having sex with him again. Despite knowing he’s – frankly – a man whore, she tells him she’s on the pill so he doesn’t need a condom. WTF!! I can’t believe anyone would have so little self respect, and so little regard for their safety.
I just couldn’t like Rose and as for Cole, he seemed a jerk…we never really got to know him, why he was always after sex…with anyone it seemed, and I need to like my main characters. TBH I couldn’t care about either of them after the first couple of chapters, and when they did develop a romance it just wasn’t working for me, I couldn’t believe in it.
Still – that’s just me, as I said I’m sure others will love it.
Stars: Two – not one for me.

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.
