Slade was deeper than I gave him credit for!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 👨🏻👱🏻♀🧔🏻👩🏻👱🏼
The heroine: Aspen – came to town to stay with an old friend to get away from her life and heartache.
The Hero(es): Slade – he is a stripper and a sex addict. He uses sex to feel numb and to forget something from his past but as soon as it is over, it all comes back.
The Story: Slade is attracted to Aspen right away and is used to women falling at his feet and wanting him for the night. So when Aspen turns him down he is determined to have her.
From the beginning, Slade was way too cocky and a bit of a jerk. Though he has reason to be a bit cocky because he is in high demand as a stripper and all the women at the club want to sleep with him. I didn’t really like his attitude, but I wanted to know more about him.
Aspen, on the other hand was way to wishy washy. She wanted him, but thinks she is above him. Though when he starts to get randy, she is all for it until she isn’t. I didn’t think the female narrator’s voice matched the character. She also sounded too old for a woman in her 20’s. So that might have been why I didn’t like her that much.
As the story went on, I got to like Cade more and more. I found that the cocky jerk had much more underneath than I would have thought. I also really liked the Male narrator’s voice. Nice and deep and it was exactly right for this character.
