REVIEW: Wrapped and Ready by Julie Kenner
Dear Mrs. Kenner,
I was excited to see this novella offered for free at Fictionwise. I usually enjoy your books and was looking forward to a sexy start to the Christmas season. Well, after reading it, I was reminded of the saying ‘you get what you pay for.’
When I think of your latest series, I think of a writer who can change plots around to give readers something new. Unfortunately, there’s really nothing new or different about this one. We get a standard lower class heroine, Annie Silver, who’s lusted for hero for years and decides to “go for it” for “one night to remember” before she heads off to NYC. Brent Carrington has lusted after her for years as well but never made a move. Right. One night of hot sex (on the floor, in a department store basement no less) and it’s the bestest either has ever had. Forevah. All I can say is they must have been having really bad sex all their lives. Anyway, it’s instant love though neither will admit it. They will admit to the hots for each other. Insert scenes of hot sex. Then Brent finally finds the balls to tell daddy he doesn’t want to run the family store. I hope his backbone doesn’t remelt during his stint in law school.
“Wrapped and Ready” is okay but nothing new and certainly offers none of the plot innovations I’m used to seeing from you. I would have been annoyed to have paid for it. C
