Book Review of Dangerous Games (Riley Jenson, Guardian, Bk 4)

Dangerous Games (Riley Jenson, Guardian, Bk 4)
reviewed on + 82 more book reviews

I too am going to review these first four books together.
Although I admit this series is well-written, and I have in fact read them...I cannot help but wonder why. Pretty much because they are sitting here and I want to swap them out. But I'm tempted to quit reading and just send them away, because they are so dark. I don't get books where the emphasis is on how ugly you can make it. The sex is ugly. The story is ugly. The people are for the most part ugly, with only occasional redemptions. And every book leaves me thinking, why did I put up with all that (insert more appropriate word here)ick?!
This is NOT a fantasy...nor a normal paranormal. This is a paranormal, horror, suspense, and dark erotica. Not as detailed as a true erotica perhaps, but plenty of bloody whipping gashes while forcibly penetrated from behind and mind controlled orgasm...until the woman literally dies with a smile on her face. Not really what I enjoy reading.
I gave the book 3.5 stars simply because I respect and appreciate authors that can actually write! I'd probably give it an B+ if I was grading it (quite a few cliches and lots of repetition). But I sure didn't like it!
