Sweet Agony, Charlotte Stein

Sweet Agony, Charlotte Stein
Genre: Erotic Romance, Women’s Fiction
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve read some cracking novels by Charlotte but to prove what I’m always saying – not all books suit all readers – this one was a fail for me…

Its hot, some very spicy and erotic scenes, almost crude at times but within the setting it worked. Sadly though I just couldn’t warm to the characters or the story. Its really just Cyrian and Molly in the whole book, and though we get their backstory released in snippets through the novel, for me it doesn’t add up to the people they’ve become. Their interactions seemed false and forced to me. Molly has some very funny snark remarks, but her actions – nope, I just couldn’t see any of that happening. Likewise Cyrian, I couldn’t add the person he was with the actions he did, and neither seemed to fit with what I knew of him from his  past. Usually I can make the connection, see why people act as they do, why they’ve become a certain way but here I just felt I was lost in a disconnection. I found I just couldn’t involve or interest myself in their story.
Sorry – I’m sure this read with be loved by many, as I’ve loved some of Charlotte’s past books but this one just doesn’t work for me.
Stars: two, one that didn’t work 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.
