There are things that would normally send me running for the hills. Like roofie pheromones, the infantilization of the heroine, which is not normally a deal breaker for me, but it is SO PREVALENT here, and sometimes sloppy copy editing. And yet it's compulsively readable. I don't know that I care about the characters, not more than superficially at any rate. The story isn't long enough, or deep enough to allow for really connecting to the characters. But the world setting is intriguing, and let's be honest, the sex scenes are pretty smokin'. For what it is, it's quite entertaining, and sometimes that's all you need.
