Hi guys! Jessica here!
I am always up for a good sex talk! So I thought I would do a discussion post because I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter!
Recently, I read a book by an author that I usually love and adore but I felt really disappointed by the book. My biggest issue is that I thought I was getting a romantic-suspense read. Instead, I got sex. A lot of it.
Don’t get me wrong. I am all for sexy times in a book. I love them. I need them. I crave them. But at the same time, instead of reading a plot based book that had sexual times, I felt I was reading a sex based book with a bit of plot thrown in. I don’t remember this being a huge issue for me before, but maybe my tastes are changing. Or maybe, when I go in with certain expectations and they aren’t met, I feel cheated.
I am a very romance driven reader. I love my romance and I love my sexy times! But I don’t want the plot to be overshadowed by that either. Especially if I’m expecting a suspenseful, action packed plot.
Teresa from Readers Live a 1000 Lives recently wrote a review where, while she enjoyed the romance, she LOVED how plot driven the book was and even found herself rushing through the romantic scenes to see what happened next!
I wonder if it’s because I’ve read so much straight up romance that now I’m finding myself wanting to branch out to get more?
What do you all think?
Do you find yourselves thinking “Not another sex scene!”?
Do you feel that some books simply have too much sex and that takes the place of an actual plot?
