Bookfanatic reviewed My Daughter's Boyfriend : A Novel on
Helpful Score: 1
Well based on the title, you'd expect this book to be really scandalous, and I suppose it is considering the 30-something heroine gets it on with the 21 year old boyfriend of her teenage daughter. However, this book is not the movie The Graduate. This book is slow and boring when it so easily could have been hot and fast-paced. The character development, plot, pacing are all mediocre. The sex is really nothing memorable or varied. The descriptions of the sex scenes had me laughing and I don't think that's what the author intended. Here's an example,
"Her vagina felt like a bed of tangled roses after a light rain; furry yet slippery yet wet. And even though she begged and pleaded with me to go down on her, my nose and mouth weren't about to go anywhere near her Petrified Forest."
Petrified Forest?! I started laughing at that. It's not nice to refer to your lady's private bits as an ancient forest.
This book is nothing special. The heroine is not one you'd root for. She is very needy and goes after this one particular man, not the hero, even when he has repeatedly cheated on her and tells her he doesn't want her anymore.
The young college student hero is either mature beyond his years in some scenes or really juvenile. His character is pretty inconsistent.
Don't let the cover fool you. It's not a really hot or sexy book. I would not spend money to buy this book. Get it in a swap from this site or borrow it from the library.
