Review: Summer's Journey: Losing Control, Vol 1
Summer's Journey: Losing Control, Vol 1 by Summer Daniels
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Erotica/True romance Reading Level: Adult
Disclosure: I received a free eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: Fortyish, newly divorced, searching and longing for something different. Something fulfilling and exciting, somewhere far outside my ordinary comfort zone.
Come with me on my journey of discovery. Explore with me. Touch, taste and feel with me.
Lots more to come following my introduction to you in this first volume of a multi-part True Romance / Erotica series.
Perhaps I was being picky, but I really didn't think being able to spell orgasm without being spotted a vowel was asking too much.
My Thoughts: This is a short and fairly non-explicit sort of prequel to Summer Daniels’ so-called “true romance” erotica series. While she claims these are true stories, she also precedes the story with a “this is a work of fiction” disclaimer, so I’m not sure what to think about that. I had planned to immediately read the 2nd book in the series, but Amazon has still not delivered it to my Kindle, so I shall content myself with this one for now, since I did promise her a review a long time ago.
Technically, the book is well-written and well-edited. The character provides a great deal of introspection, and lots of hints of juicy stuff to come, if you’re a fan of erotica. As far as the writing style, this would be a five-star book, but I just didn’t care for it. Probably it’s just not my cup of tea. Please realize it is a sort of prequel and there is not really any “action” in this book, just hints at it; Ms. Daniels says things get juicy in the 2nd book. If you enjoy erotica and “true romance” type stories, you should enjoy this.
