Once Upon a Dare, Jennifer Bonds


Once Upon a Dare, Jennifer Bonds
Genre:  Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
This was a well written book, but the story just didn’t grab me. I’ve read books based around the same situation as this that have been fantastic, and was hoping for much from this one. I liked the characters but didn’t love them, didn’t really see why Olivia went off at the deep end when Cole did what he did – sure he was wrong, but I just felt her reaction OTT and childish. The sex between them was hot, but a book needs more than that for me. Though they did work things out in the end I didn’t really feel the romance between them, its tough when its all hidden, no dates or anything, just a few hot and sensual interludes. I needed more of a connection between them, more romancing, more story all round, and as I wasn’t feeling the love so to speak, when things went wrong it didn’t really affect me emotionally. I need to get invested in the characters and their story, to want things to work out for them but here…well, it all seemed a bit bland for me. It’s a good book, but for me not a great one. As ever though that’s just my view and others will love this novel – it’d be a dull world if everyone wanted the same story.
Stars: Three, a good novel just not a great 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.

    Is it just me, or are a lot of authors slipping into stringing together sex scenes without a lot of story in between?

    • iamaslutgirl says :

      Seems like it. Maybe they just want to give girls from 18 to 78 a reason to “let our fingers do the walking.”

      • soireadthisbooktoday says :

        ROFL!!! Well, I read the other day that 80% of modern women have decided that having an ongoing relationship/marriage is not something they want to tie themselves to any more . . . so maybe you are right! LOL

      • iamaslutgirl says :

        I am not interested in marriage or making babies, so I will stay single and pleasure myself in between the times when I can find men who will pleasure me for a little while.

        Smart girl! Concentrate on making yourself, and the world around you, better! 😉

      • iamaslutgirl says :

        Thanks! Coming from you, I take that as an ENORMOUS compliment! Thanks Sweetie!

      • jeanniezelos says :

        Lol. Made me snigger there!!

      • iamaslutgirl says :

        Well, I rub my pussy a lot, and often, and I am not shy about discussing it. When we are tired we sleep, when we are hungry we eat, when we are thirsty we drink something, when MY pussy needs attention, I give her my undivided attention, until I have a nice orgasm!

    • jeanniezelos says :

      Yep…sadly seems that way.

    This book made my pussy wet! But you are right, it wasn’t a masterpiece.
