Thing is, I could have sworn I read something by her years and years ago and hated it with the fire of a thousand suns. But since I couldn't recall if it was her or not, I decided, what the hell, give her a (another?) shot!
And the book was good! She writes well, had a good romance going.. and damn, had some light porn. My eyes almost fell out of their sockets when nipples were flung all about! I guess I always had it in my mind that Ms. Lackey was a traditionalist when it came to stuff like that... whatever THAT means.
Anyway, yes, I liked it. The plot was a bit eh, but it was thoroughly enjoyable throughout. The romance was somewhat slow and yet somewhat rushed at the same time. But I found I didn't mind. This wasn't a book that was about thinking. It was simple, and that's not a bad thing. Sometimes, it's just perfect.
I'm starting a book that's got a whole bunch of short stories in it. (Jim Butcher is in it! Yay!) This way I can get a taste of some of the authors I've been considering reading. (Or have bought their books, but they're still on my bookshelf unread!) My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding... With a title like that, yes, I'm thinking the main interest came from the Jim Butcher.
