Body Rocks, A. M. Arthur

Body Rocks,  A. M. Arthur

Body Rocks (Off Beat) by [Arthur, A. M.]

Genre:  Erotica

I like rock band books but… this didn’t really work for me.

I’ve enjoyed some of A.M.Arthurs stories but this one just felt too YA. The main characters are around 21, but speak and act as so much younger in so many ways, and I found it hard to connect with them.

There’s lots of sex, so it does fit the erotica genre in that way, but I didn’t really feel it was particularly erotic sex, and there’s a huge difference. Just having sex in a story doesn’t make it an erotic book for me. Clearly though this story has lots of readers who love it and of course that’s the beauty of books, there’s something to suit all tastes, and we are so very varied in what we want.

I just found it hard to get lost in this story, to treat the characters as real, to feel this issues and anxieties were genuine, and for me that’s essential to really love a book. As always though that’s just my take and it depends on what sort of read you want. If a couple of YA men with issues from their pasts falling in love is what does it for you, and you can overlook what I couldn’t  then this read may be just what you want.
