Forensic sex therapy interspersed with a soft porn novel

It's a good thriller...it is a bit graphic and detailed (not as much as a Nate Kenyon book, however), so probably not good for the weak tummied.

I am conflicted on just how to rate this book. I liked the story just fine, it was engaging and interesting. I liked the main characters, I wanted to know more about them and thought they were constructed really well. But the way the author kept switching from the Dr.'s first person perspective and jumping to some other person every few chapters, and usually waited at least a few paragraphs to tell you who we had switched to, and then jumping right back to Dr Snow with no warning; well it was irritating. I found myself having to spend half my time trying to figure out who was telling me the story at this moment rather than enjoying the story. Then it all reached a heavily predictable conclusion that made Dr Snow seem like an absolute imbecile for not figuring it out. Making your intelligent main character look stupid is a very bad idea. Confusing your readers with who is telling the story is also a very bad idea. Ultimately I just couldn't get into it and just wanted it to be over. As I write this I realize, I don't want to give this the 3 stars I had originally intended because I didn't like it so that was being too generous.
