Chatting about books, authors, reading devices and the latest events happening around the cyber-world of book reviews.

California Cowboy - Maggie Casper Made it halfway than DNF'd. I just couldn't take the dominating hero and the doe-eyed virgin heroine who allowed him to treat her worse than a doormat. There is nothing sexy about an abusive man. The author may have softened him up in the last half, but his alpha-male actions in the first half didn't even borderline on unappropriate - punishing her with a hard spanking (this is not a BSDM book), yelling abusive slurs non-stop and terrorizing her, never once saying a nice word that made us believe how she could possibly want him, grabbing and man-handeling her wrists to the point of a hard struggle, telling her she will F him and not asking...etc. This was blatent abusive behavior, so am I to find this sexy and entertaining?? Uh, not.
