Wedding Games by Karen S. Smith
Published November 8th 2012 by Black Lace
Source: finished copy from the publisher
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Goodreads summary: Emma is not looking forward to her cousin's wedding: the usual awkward guests, the endless small talk, the bad dancing... But a chance encounter with Kit, a very sexy stranger, leaves her breathless.
Without a chance to say goodbye, Emma resigns herself to the fact their incredibly hot encounter will be just sexy memory but then she meets Kit at another wedding...
I'm not sure it's fair of me to rate the entire book based on my judgement of the (very poor) decisions of the main character. But since pretty much the entire book revolves around said poor choices, what enjoyment could this book provide?
I'm going to cut to the chase here. This book went from OK to worse until it ends in a mind-blowingly awful wedding night orgy. With all due respect to nymphomaniacs or even prostitutes for that matter...Emma's sexual behavior is worse. Hell, prostitutes are at least paid to have sex with complete strangers. And they even-gasp-use protection, which seems to be a foreign concept to Emma. HIGHLIGHT TO READ SPOILER BELOW[You do NOT have sex with a whole stag party in a mini-bus on a parking lot without damn protection and expect me to roll with it. (hide spoiler)]
You do NOT have sex with a whole stag party in a mini-bus on a parking lot without damn protection and expect me to roll with it.
Basically the woman has sex with every man that appears in the novel (and some women too). Considering that we have no idea what she does for living, it's safe to conclude she lives for sex. She spends every waking and sleeping moment doing it, thinking of it or dreaming about it. I can take a lot in erotica, but Wedding Games was over the top, to the point that it kills any semblance of a turn-on. Which is sad; had the author continued the thread that she establishes in the beginning (meeting the same guy at every wedding she attends) it would have been ok. But why the hell add a dozen more people to the...equation?
To whom would I recommend this book? Not sure, if you're into dirty, Wedding Games is as dirty as it gets.
