After indulging in one too many spiked eggnogs, Shelly decides to flirt with the man t she’s been in love with since she was a teenager. How far is she willing to go to try to convince Harrison to give them a try?
I don't know where to start with this. The sex scenes were abundant and hot and there were plenty of sub-plots going on to make the book interesting, but I think that was part of the problem - there was SO MUCH (maybe even too much) going on. I had a hard time connecting with the female lead (Shelley) and the male lead (Harrison) emotionally as characters and it didn't help that there were so many other side characters in and out of the story. Add to that the prevailing BDSM theme and I just felt a little lost throughout the whole book. Don't get me wrong; I enjoyed it and there were many redeeming factors - the aforementioned plentiful sex scenes, the familial relationships and friendships discussed, and the fact that the couple is interracial are just a few highlights. However, I didn't like that there were scenes (sex and BDSM play) between the two main characters and other people when it was clear that they should be pursuing a relationship with each other - I just didn't find that enjoyable at all. And it may just be that I'm uneducated or just uninterested in the deeper aspects of BDSM, but I felt a bit inundated by how much the book focused on the lifestyle. In the end I give Imperfect Love 2.75/3 wine glasses. I don't think that the book was bad at all but it just wasn't in my wheel house.
I’m Jade and I’m a closeted writer. I’ve been writing short stories and the likes since I was a young girl but kept all of those words for myself. I’ve been told a number of times that I write well and that I should publish. The thing is… you can’t put yourself out there for that level of criticism unless you’re ready. I had a small blog years ago but I failed to keep up with it because I wasn’t as committed to my craft. Those days are long gone and here I am. It’s take a while but I’m finally ready to make that leap.
I’m working on my first series that will include multiple books of a BDSM series. I write Erotica, Romance, Fantasy, Fantasy Romance, and other forms of Fiction. I also love to write Shorts. They can be as short as a bio of a person that I’ve seen or imagined to as long as a few chapters. I take creative inspiration from everything around me but I never use the source directly. For instance, if I see a blue bird singing in a tree by the time that my mind has come up with a story it be a black cat purring the same tune.
As for the fun stuff! I also read by the dozen, use my culinary skills to bake and cook, entertain a swarm of nieces, nephews, and any other adoptive children that I can. I love to host parties, entertain, and talk to my two dogs who happily keep my feet warm.
I was born and raised in good old Cincinnati, OH but I love to travel and see new places. I have yet to travel outside of the US but I’m working on it. I don’t have any biological children but you can’t tell all my previously mentioned children that. Feel free to stick around to find out more about me because I’m sure there’s a lot more.
