    Review: Baby V

    Baby V Baby V by Tara Oakes
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    This is the first book I've read from this author and I definitely see a lot of potential.

    I enjoyed the story's concept. However, the idea of an arranged marriage actually wasn't the main focus of the book, which made the preface a bit misleading. The story was good regardless and I'm not sure why this was even integrated into it. It didn't even add that much drama.

    Although the writing was good, it lacked fluidity for me. Especially in the sexy scenes. Nothing messes up my mojo faster than disjointed and choppy sounding fecking.

    Ex. "His hips rise harshly, in sync with his hands as they crash us together, impaling me with his soft spear."

    huh

    No. Just no.

    First of all, why a freaking spear? Ouch!

    Second, has anyone ever tried to insert soft junk inside? Were they successful? Did it feel GOOD?

    Yeah, I highly doubt that.

    Despite all of this, there wasn't really a dull moment, which helped this story immensely.

    Every time Dom's ex Tanya opened her mouth, I wanted...

    slap

    Sadly, it didn't happen :(

    Dom was amazing. I wish this had his POV. I think it might have helped improve my rating. V was a little too innocent and naive for me. It made her seem pathetic and annoying. I don't remember being that dense as a virgin. Anyway, I'm invested enough to read book 2. It seems like the story is about to get even more interesting. I can't wait to see how this author's writing has improved as well.
