Dy's Take

Irresistible Forces by Brenda Jackson

This was my first e-book, read via the Kindle app on my new favorite toy, my iPhone.

I’m poor, having just bought said toy, so it was a freebie. And yet I still paid too much, in my time if nothing else. The sad thing was it had potential. It was a nifty premise, something that never would have occurred to me, but it fell short on the intent front. Too much sex to be a straight romance but the sex scenes were too uninteresting (and too ‘off-camera) to qualify properly as erotica.

The writing was unappealing—lots of adjectives, so many that they began to detract from the plot rather than enhance it. Perhaps even more offensive to me, the copyediting was abysmal.  Sadly, it was free for a reason.

I hope the print version, if there is one, got a better editorial eye than the Kindle version.

Keep your peepers peeled, kids. I’m reading another e-book using the Barnes & Noble e-reader app so I can do a compare & contrast review in a few days.
