Description; Can she accept the destiny being thrust at her?
For weeks, the darkly sinful Zachariah, her favourite customer at McGinty’s, has been raising NYC student Beth Siegel’s pulse, driving her crazy with need.
Neither can she keep the tall, blue-eyed mysterious Luke who haunts the library stacks at her day job, out of her mind or her sweaty, desperate fantasies.
Fate hands Beth a startling destiny: to bond with both of them—a bond formed via sex. Sex with either one of them would have been fabulous. Together? Irresistible.
But fate is a two-edged sword and the bond comes at a price. Luke and Zack are not what they seem, and the world as Beth knows it not quite the real deal. Can Beth accept the price the bond will ask of her?
Warning: This story features two super hot alpha heroes, multiple sex scenes, including anal sex, MM sexual play, and MMF sex. Do not read this book if frank sexual language and sex scenes offend you.
No non-humans were harmed except for large numbers of Grimoré, who died with satisfactory squeals…
Review; Beth's Acceptance was...okay. I feel that there should have been more of a plot. I get that it was only a novella, but I didn't really get much of a sense of the characters and...it was just sex, sex, sex a lot of the time. It was also unrealistic.
I did enjoy reading this book. That's why it got 2.5*s, rather than just 2 or 1. But, there were so many things in the book that I could not enjoy.
Lack of explanations about the worlds. The sudden appearance of a prophecy. Lack of character development. The wording for some of the sexual scenes. The unrealisticness of the entire book. The worlds. The finding out. The bonding. The fact that it all takes place over, like, three days. Also, I think it could have done with a little more editing. There are a lot of repeat words and such. Or maybe I'm just being a little picky.
There also wasn't that much that I totally loved.
So, I loved that there was a little M/M scene. It wasn't much, but I'm a sucker for M/M scenes.
I liked that it was an easy read.
And anything after that...well, I'm just grasping at straws.
To sum it up? This novella was just not for me. Which sucks, because I hate giving reviews like these, even if I did enjoy the book.
Will I carry on with the series? Probably. It takes a lot for me to give up on a book or series, although I did consider giving up at the halfway point.
I'm really not sure I would recommend this book. I'm sure some of you would love it. I just didn't.
By all means, try it for yourself.
