Crap! That's what this is. I'm starting to lose faith in Emma Holly. I read the 'Midnight' series and thought, "what a great author." So I either bought or traded for several other books by her and after a string of bad or nonexistent plots, I'm about ready to give up on her.
As with 'All You Can Eat', 'Demon's Daughter', and 'Personal Assets', the plot to 'Strange Attractions' is loose at best, and confusing as heck at worst. Quantum leaps, atomic particles...ugh! The oddball scientist for some reason reminded me of the albino monk from the DaVinci Code, coulda been the shaved body hair, certainly not one to put me in a romantic mood.
And on top of it all, I certainly wasn't expecting all of the gay male love scenes contained in this book. Now I'm certainly no prude as far as sex goes. I expected a steamy, unconventional romance. A little kink is Emma Holly's style, but this was over the top.
And the heroine, boy was she a piece of work. I felt like I was on a see-saw watching her go back and forth between the mad scientist and his partner. I mean jeez, how long does it take to figure out that these two bisexual men are in love with EACH OTHER, but have commitment issues with anyone else.
If I hadn't spent $10 on this book, I can honestly say that I probably wouldn't have finished it, but I was determined to get my money's worth even if it did gross me out a bit.
The sex in this book was hot, hot, hot, but I am not into the submission and/or control scene. If you enjoy that type of read and are not put off by M/M sex, this book is for you.
This was not a good read for me. Too much of a homosexual element because of the attraction of the two male characters in the book. Didn't like the female character either.
Very strange. I wouldn't consider it erotica, more scientific experimentation concerning sexuality and keeping passions in check without allowing spontaneity. Couldn't get through the entire book. I hope someone else will find it more entertaining than I did!
I love Ms. Holly & couldn't remember if I'd read this one or not. Turns out I did. This book is Hot! and very explicit so if you have a faint heart and don't have an open mind...then this book is not for you.
