Jason (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Bk 23)
Jason - Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Bk 23 Author:Laurell K. Hamilton "Enjoying pain with your pleasure is something you either get, or you don't. If you get it, then you don't really need it explained, because you know how good it feels, and if you don't get it then no amount of talking is going to convince you it makes sense." — But sometimes you have to explain the unexplainable, e... more »specially if the love of your life needs to understand, or she'll leave you. Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake's best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She's accomplished, beautiful, and she's crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong?
J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things. She plans to keep sleeping with women, because Jason can't meet that need, just like she can't meet Jason's need for rough sex and bondage. J.J. doesn't understand why Jason isn’t content to go elsewhere for a need she can’t fulfil, so Jason asks Anita to help him explain.
Anita is having her own relationship growing pains with her only female lover ever, Jade. Jason suggests that J.J. might be able to help Anita with her girl problem, while she helps him with his kinky explanations. With some encouragement from a few other lovers in Anita's life she reluctantly agrees, and J. J. makes plans to fly into town for an experience that none of them will ever forget. « less

While the books in this series have been hit or miss, this book was awful. This book was just one big sex scene. There was no plot. One would think with at title of Jason, we would have learned of Jason's story, nope just multiple orgy scenes. No zombie raisings, no crime investigation, no character building. One more book like this and I will definitely stop reading this series.
There is nothing to spoil in this book. It is honestly just one big sex scene, while I was expecting a more hystorical story about how Jason became Jason. It's not. Sorry, not her best. I was unimpressed, disapointed, and well... I don't know if I will be getting her next book. :(
Love Laurell Hamilton and Jason is one of my favorite characters. It's great to get a bit more of his story and I hope that he and J.J. are very happy together.
This is one of the very few books that really has no violence, just lots of eroticism. It does set the stage for more intrigue with Jade, who was Anita's only female lover, so it will be interesting to see if Laurell is going to expand upon her character.
This was a quiet read, and I'm looking forward to reading Dead Ice next.
