Picture Perfect Cowboy
August 26, 2018
ROMANCE, EROTICA, ADVANCE READING COPY
Looking for a quick, kinky love story where the man is the novice for once? Picture Perfect Cowboy is that story. Jason Waters, professional bull rider, (retired) is struggling with his desire to dominate women. It's something he's thought about in secret and explored only through the internet. After agreeing to be photographed for a calendar for literacy he meets pink-haired, sexy Simone, a sometimes photographer, sometimes professional submissive. Simone has no issues with her sexual desires and jumps at the chance to help him with his. And so the kink begins.
In my opinion the story reads a bit too much like a non-fiction "how to" book. I'd title it "Dominance 101" or "So You're Kinky, Now What?" Chapter one would be all about how consenting adults can do whatever they want in the bedroom or playroom, or wherever there's a spare riding crop or blindfold. This novel promotes that concept with a somewhat simplistic plot and likeable, although unmemorable, characters. That said, the author weaves a nice story that is more romance than erotica and given the price of $3.99 for the ebook on Amazon, perhaps we are getting about what is expected. Even at that low price, this reader would have liked more heart and confidence from Jason and less recitation from Simone.
I received an ARC of Picture Perfect Cowboy. Many thanks to publisher 8th Circle Press and NetGalley.
