My philosophy is simple: GIVE IT THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT..even tho i was really not fond of erotica, i read a review somebody left in amazon and i was simple curious…..first chapter and i was absolutely HOOKED..i must say, if somebody hasn’t had a chance to read these or simply doesnt feel identified, i encourage you to do it. GIVE IT THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT….yes, you may react like i did when i read the first sex scene…..BUT OMG the way how this lady describes everything and make it look so elaborate wins me big time. I have to say tho, the first book is the only one really considered as erotica, the rest of them even tho they include HOT STEAMY SCENES…they are more romance…and i learned so much about the real cowboy life from her perspective that i never even dreamed of learning. Bonus: they are in a certain way educational if you are really curious about the life of a real western cowboy and forgotten states such as South Dakota and Wyoming…I have read ALL HER BOOKS. every single one and all the anthologies and i would SOOOOO READ THEM AGAIN….
