Shock Waves (Harlequin Blaze #354)(Sex On The Beach)Shock Waves (Harlequin Blaze #354) by Colleen Collins
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

No, no, no. No, no, no. This is not how to write erotica. This is not how to write romance.

I was lured by the prospect of sin, tricked by the allusions to Lou Reed and Edgar Allan Poe. This was supposed to be Gothic, dark and dangerous.

Instead it was insipid and stale.

There is no passion in any of these sentences. The characters are so under-developed they are hardly there at all. The sex is as tame as a glass of tepid milk.

No. Let’s try another one, quick.
