Review: Ink Spots (#3)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all - I kind of hate the title. I don't know just doesn't seem to be hot enough for the contents of the book. On the other hand, I have no idea what a "hot" title would be. So there.

Next, I had no idea when I started reading this that it was the 3rd book in a series. I'm frustrated now because I like to read a series in order. I'm pretty anal-retentive about that. That being said, I don't feel I was lost or confused by the story. But as soon as I finish writing this review - I will be reading book 1 and then 2. If they are as short and sweet as book 3, I should get through them both in no time.

Ok - so, Ink Spots. The easiest way to describe this book is as follows: You know those porn DVDs that just have a series of smoking hot sex scenes strung together with no plot? That is this book. Well, that's not exactly fair. There is a little plot. It's Mandi's birthday.....she's always had a crush on Jaz (her boss's brother).....Jaz has always had a crush on Mandi......the sister sort of fixes them up as a birthday present for Mandi.....and they have smoking hot sex all day long. In a nutshell.....that's the book.

But besides the thin plot and hot sex, there is a great deal of character development. Mandi and Jaz do talk to each other between sex breaks and you learn a lot about them - and their past. It's quite sweet, actually. But then there were the times when the character's inner dialogue went something like this: "He wanted the next piece of meat she put in her mouth to be his cock not another piece of bacon." Yea. See - I'm not mature enough to not laugh and snort at that.

While my review does sort of come across like I didn't like.....that isn't correct. I loved the book. It was hot, short, and to the point. It didn't have any ambition to be anything other than what it was - smoking hot sex intertwined with enough character development to make you love Mandi and Jaz and hope they had a HEA in their near future.

Solid 4 stars.
