ok right so I’ve been reading this really ridiculous super awful romance novel and just….
it’s like the worst of every pwp fanfic ever written.
It’s also the first in a series that’s basically about the freaky shit a fictional metal band gets up to. It’s weird. I guess I’ve never met guys in like stupidly popular bands but I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume that they’re, y’know, people. Not so much in this book. Which I guess, really, I shouldn’t be surprised over. It’s not as if romance novels are a place to expect excellent characterization or realistic dialogue or anything but this is STILL bad for the genre.
I’ll admit that I don’t read a ton of contemporary romance. I’m a bit of a sucker for the historical/period romances but I can generally appreciate some smut. Except this is like 1000% smut. I’m about 80 pages in I think and just….it’s probably been 60 pages pure sex, the other 20 being weird interactions with the band and protag or between the band members themselves.
The last scene involved the drummer going into the bathroom for a piss while the guitarist was havin fuk with protag lady and guitarist recruited him to hold lady so he could fuck her harder or some shit and it’s just really really really weird. Is that how it happens? You sign up for guitarist sex and get drummer as a bonus?????
