I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.
I was reading Her Gentle Giant, Part 1 (which I thought was fairly boring) and noticed references to a menage grouping that must have appeared in a previous book, so I downloaded this, book 1 in the series, and started reading it instead.
It has two huge problems:
1) It is incredibly boring. There are many, many sex scenes strung together with minimal, boring story.
2) Two words: Horse Porn.
Seriously. Several long, graphic descriptions of horses having sex and the heroine getting off on it. I can't take any more of it. No human has actually had sex with a horse but it is close enough to be disturbing. And yes, they characters in the book actually use the phrase "horse porn" more than once.
DNFing this one and the following books, Her Gentle Giant Part 1 and Her Gentle Giant Part 2 because No. I am not reading boring horse porn.
