Dy's Take

Dangerous Pleasures by Bertrice Small

Graphic, and once it got going the writing got better—the all-plot & no action setup at the beginning of the story was a little rough–choppy dialogue, excess adverbs, etc.

Ms. Small excels at the erotic portion for the most part, but is weak on the writing of the non-sex elements.

I’m actually starting to think there is not truly good erotica out there. Either it’s a romance with sex thrown in for spice, it’s just graphic sex with no plot, it’s paranormal and not intended as erotica, or it’s just out and out bad. Would it kill publishers to edit this stuff a little more, “Hey, your main love interest sounds like the male lead in an adult film–” “Horny and nonverbal with really bad dialogue? You mean I have to fix it?”


Overall a silly premise and a goofy/weird ending, but well, it is pr0n for women, not classic literature.
