Book of Love, Julia Talbot

Book of Love, Julia Talbot
Genre:  Romance, Fantasy/Paranormal
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I was really intrigued by the sound of this, but sadly its very short at just 133 pages. Novellas like this don’t really work for me, I like to really get to know the characters and the plot (s ). With the length restrictions it’s just not possible. Its perfect for readers who want to read something quickly, and are happy to be plunged straight into a story with little background placing it.
This is a very sexy, hot novel, but feels to me like a story written just for the purpose of including the M/M/F sex scenes. It almost feels like the plot has actually been built around them. Its well written and an easy read but just too short for me. I wanted to know more of everybody, more of the book and the magic, and more depth in the plot. Its why I tend to avoid anything under 200 pages usually. Like I said, its the perfect book for the right reader, just not for me. Just too light and fluffy in the storyline, though the sex scenes were very erotic.

Stars:  Two, right book for another reader but just too short and simple 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.
