If you are finding it a struggle waiting for the next Fifty Shades movie to hit the big screen you can console yourself with Lara Adrian’s latest novel. This is the second book in her “100” series and they really do need to be read in sequence otherwise there are some pretty big spoilers in this book.
At the end of the first installment Avery had finally shared the dark secret of her Pennsylvania past with Dominic Baine and their life in the Penthouse had resumed as normal. As the middle book in the series it was never going to resolve any issues or long term questions but you have to get right to the last couple of pages before there is anything that causes you to sit up and take interest.
Like all Lara’s books there is a lot of explicit sexual activity and it might just be me but it all started to feel a bit mechanical and repetitive. I don’t know whether that is because it is just mere mortals involved rather than the Midnight Breed but I found myself skipping quite a lot of the grunting and rolling around. It just didn’t hit the right note for me. That’s not to say that I won’t be eagerly awaiting the next book “100 Reasons” because I will, but more because of the epic cliffhanger that is delivered in the last few pages. I really didn’t see that coming! (ahem…)
