hoo boy! ok, the title definitely fits! this book is fairly thin - about 200 pages and I *think* on page 101 they finally got horizontal but only for a while! There's really no story here to hold the sex scenes together so you gotta take your own breaks when you can and unless you're pretty hardcore you're gonna need to come up for air on your own 'cause these 2 rabbits only come up for air a few times and that's just to change positions or go to the book store to do it again...for someone who's only had sex a few times this woman adapts quickly and can take it even when she's 'swollen' and sore but says she isn't..definitely fantasy LOL! This is one of those 'past the cervix' books if you know what I mean. You definitely get your $'s worth for the sex :-) big time! I wish it had more of a story though because I think she could write a great story. I have one more of her books to read but luckily it's only 200 pages or so like this one..any more nonstop sexathon I wouldn't be able to move! anyways the story is a '1' but the sex I guess would be a '5' for sheer stayingpower! no threesomes and I don't recall any BDSM other than the man being very alpha/dominant..might have been a handcuff page but my eyes sorta glazed over after a while LOL!

IMO the heroine is a twit, like the writer couldn't decide if she's a virgin or a ho. I got about 3/4 way through this and just wanted to slap her. DNF

Little plot - lots of sex scenes [in bed, on the floor, on the table, in Borders Books next to Voltaire and, of course, against the wall...] I just wonder when these people sleep??? On the plus side, it's very readable. Fair warning, you may never be able to look at a honey bear the same way again...

Well written for an erotica book but had the genre's typical lack of a plot.

How did this ever get published? I can read even an awful book, but this was ridiculous.
There is no structure. For some reason, they just stop the text skip a few lines and then start up again. not sure if this is an editing error or someone needed it to get to 200 pages and didn't want it classified as a LARGE PRINTs book.
The best think I can say about this book is it's cover.
The characters are shallow. The story goes NOWHERE and I'm appalled I'm admitting to having read this. I'm only reviewing it b/c I appreciate other reviews and walk away when they're pretty empahtic.
If that doesn't help enough, the sex scenes were lame too.
If you spend money or waste a PBS credit, don't blame me.
It'd be better spent on anything by Emma Holly, Megan Hart, Kresley Cole or Dr. Suess. seriously....

No real storyline, no plot, no character development - Just sex scene after sex scene after sex scene...... Someone should tell this author that she is desensitizing her audience and losing all erotic impulse. I found myself so bored - ha! me? Bored with sex? That's a first! - that I actually skimmed the last 1/3 of the book, looking for a story.
Didn't happen. The characters were so one-dimensional that they were not believable, and so unrealistic that they were not even likeable. One of the worst of this genre that I've read.
