I just read the first 10 pages last night.
Geoff is reading "mommy porn"?
Yep. I want to see what the fuss is all about. I'm expecting a 2012 version of the old Harold Robbins 2 orgasms per chapter format. The first 10 pages had no sex. No orgasms. Two thumbs down. Hopefully, it will pick up.
Afterwards, I'm planning to publicly "gift" the trilogy to somebody to create an embarrassing moment.
I'll raise my hand and say "I purchased the trilogy." I read and somewhat enjoyed the first book. I slogged through the second one and gave up after two or three chapters of the third one. Numbers two and three were returned to Barnes and Noble...but number one had had a run-in with a glass of wine. ; )
What you really mean to say is "...but I accidentally knocked my vibrator into my glass of wine and it spilled on the book"
Something like that...!
I'll be interested to hear your review. ; )
