Books and Whimsy

I blog about books that change me at Books and Whimsy. I also write discussion posts, and host original features. I'm quite silly sometimes, serious others, and always champion great books. (booksandwhimsy.com) You can find my author blog at onceuponaprologue.net

Love Potions - Michelle McCleod This was originally a review request from the author, which I accepted, but I cannot force myself to finish this book. It started out very promising - an unassuming, sympathetic female protagonist and a sexy elf as a love interest - but the novella quickly degenerated into all sex and little plot. What plot there was, was very clumsy. There was some language used during the sex scenes that I could not get past. The word 'pussy' was used at least a half dozen times during each sex scene, and each lovemaking scene only lasted about a page. I was disgusted and offended. I regret that I cannot finish this novella, but in good conscience, I can't.
