The characters are fun, I enjoy the plot and some of the mini-plots , and I have found myself re-reading it several times. At the end of the day, I rate books in part by how well they develop, the quality of the writing, etc BUT the fact that I will choose to re-read a book several times is worth bonus points. Chalk this one up as one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Feb 27, Steve rated it it was amazing. Great book, good story, good characters. Best part of the book right here Slight spoiler here beware!
Kicked the bucket. Welcome to Castle Cocksucker! View 2 comments. But listen to it I did…and wow am I glad! The book is astonishingly creative and entertaining, and the narrator Tess Irondale does a wonderful job bringing the story and characters to life. In some ways, the book is like an adult Harry Potter — it explores themes of friendship, love, lust, greed, evil and goodness with many terrific characters and an immersive fictional world.
Rather than say anymore spoilers! View 1 comment. Feb 13, Keith rated it really liked it Shelves: Good intentions could easily have been a trite pornographic book about nice guy with an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other. It could have been a shallow, erotic, morality play.
It could even have been a nice guy finishes first wish fulfillment story with a harem of gorgeous, sexy, shallow, supernatural women. It's not. Instead, it is a very well written, funny, unanticipated book. The characters and their motivations are well thought out, the sex fits the story and is emotional erotic Good intentions could easily have been a trite pornographic book about nice guy with an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other. The characters and their motivations are well thought out, the sex fits the story and is emotional erotica instead of pornographic explicit.
The good guys get their hero's rewards, and the bad guys are fun to hate and suffer their just deserts in a horribly entertaining fashion. The plot, story, and characters twist and turn unexpectedly, but never unbelievably.
Even the protagonist's angst is not overdone and is actually relevant to the story. Mar 17, iam rated it it was ok Shelves: This book isn't horrible, it just got boring.
I'm tired of seeing it wait for me. I've decided to have an official breakup with this book, remove it from my device, and go eat ice cream. Apr 11, Christopher rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this book. For a first novel, it was outstanding. There were many typos in the ebook, but it was fairly easy to overlook and context was never really sacrificed.
It was so funny. The author seems to have a talent for hitting my humor buttons. The primary guardian angel character says some of the funniest stuff I have ever heard, mainly because you'd never expect an angel to say it.
Sex, sex, and more sex. Ordinarily, this tends to turn me off, as I'm not usually into porno novel I really liked this book. Ordinarily, this tends to turn me off, as I'm not usually into porno novels.
Somehow, the author made it work.
Yes, if you are not into erotica of any kind, please don't pick up this book. But if you can stand the Laurell K Hamilton descriptions of some guy's schlong every other chapter, then this won't bother you and you may even like it. But there is a LOT of sex, and it seems actually integral to the story--the main chars are all involved with a succubus! The story flowed well and the characters were pretty good.
Except that almost absolutely every character in the book got laid, often repeatedly, it was easy to suspend disbelief and really enjoy the story. Did I mention how funny it was? Oh damn, that was so sexy. Jan 23, Erica rated it it was amazing. I usually avoid "urban fantasy" novels because, frankly, I prefer an actual plot to just a bunch of sex scenes strung together.
However, this book came highly recommended by a friend, and so I decided to give it a read. I'm so glad that I did, because it's a hell of a lot of fun! It's well-written enough that I stayed up way too late! It's funny enough that I was laughing out loud.
Sep 19, Michael Loring rated it it was amazing. For a very long time I put off reading this book for a multitude of reasons. I wanted to make sure I was ready to head into this book before I picked it up.
When I finally did get to it, I could barely put it down. This is the story of every go For a very long time I put off reading this book for a multitude of reasons.
Every male, no matter how noble and decent, would love to be placed in the position that Alex Carlisle has been put into. After saving a Demon and Angel from a ritual, he becomes bonded to both without intending to be. Sex was practically non-existent in his life before, but now he has it in spades. Every girl he has ever wanted comes running to his doorstep, and with the encouragement from Lorelei — the Succubus — he attends to them all.
Through it all he discovers love in a place he never would have expected to find it, in the form of two women. One from Hell and the other from Heaven. I knew this was not my usual read from the start. But beyond that I enjoyed the unique view upon religion in this novel, The idea that not a single religion is correct per se, but rather the idea is that if you are a devout and good-natured person then you may spend eternity in bliss. Should you be a vile, despicable person you are punished in the Pit.
The theological questions that we ask everyday is alluded to in this novel, but is never truly answered. I liked it very much, leaving room for some personal interpretation. It offers a very reasonable statement about religion, relationships, humanity and morality.
And about how vampires suck royally. I look forward to reading more from this very talented author in the near future. Aug 17, Joe rated it it was amazing. Loved this book! I have no interest in erotica, but decided to give this book a shot because of the reviews. I was more than surprised at how good it was. The characters are awesome, Rachel's dirty mouth was hilarious and Alex's friends are great. A lot happened in this book, it wasn't a straightforward type of plot where you have all the characters and conflicts introduced at the beginning of the story and finally have everything resolved by the end.
The plot reminds me of Demon Accords by John Loved this book! The plot reminds me of Demon Accords by John Conroe because it's an easy plot Alex isn't trying to save the world or bring about the destruction of evil or do anything on such a large scale.
He just wants to be left alone with his gf's and live a relatively normal life. You don't feel like its really a struggle The author creates problems that you know the main character will be able to overcome. The fun is in watching how he overcomes it. I guess I'd describe it as a lighthearted and fun read. All in all, I am a bit shocked by saying this as I don't read erotica but I think it's become one of my most favorite books.
Not only do I want a sequel, I want several sequels! Jun 10, Hollow Well rated it really liked it Shelves: I tried really hard to not like this book. After all, it is about a 19 year old boy, Alex, who, through a black magical ritual gone awry, becomes bound as a Master to both a succubus and an angel.
The succubus heals her wounds by bathing in Alex's sexual energy, so she's pulling out all her magic tricks to a have him hook up with any willing mate and b ensure that all women are willing to have sex without strings.
Meanwhile, Alex is portrayed as a nice guy which means that he rejects the notio I tried really hard to not like this book.
So, the setup is, like, the ultimate teen boy sex fantasy. Indeed, the first half dragged a little as the world was built and hosts of other paranormal characters - good and evil, but all so sexy, were introduced. Luckily the plot picked up and became increasingly compelling.
Slowly, but surely, I found myself admitting that the writing is smart and really, really witty. And, no doubt, I do love lesbian characters in my reading material. So, yes I did enjoy this book. I loved the indie witches. I laughed at the vampires along with everyone else. I fretted over the Duke from Hell. And I rooted for Alex and his lovers' rutting.
And while the male gaze abounds, one must appreciate how the author turns that fantasy all the way up I believe that I will most certainly read book 2 to see where this may go next.
This was like a wet dream for geeky good guys. Good guys are for real my jam. The binding accidentally gets transferred to our hero. He a This was like a wet dream for geeky good guys.
He also gets magically bonded to an angel who was a part of the same ceremony. But wait. No problem. And Alex just has such deep emotional connections with them all. How lucky. It was a little tiresome, actually. Especially when his new guardian angel Remember the one he saves at the beginning? My bad. See what I mean? Luckiest guy ever.
His succubus has been hoping this would happen for Alex. She wants it for him. And she wants the angel for herself, too. And Alex still gets to sleep with other women Other stuff happened, too. Some feud-y type things happened between demons and angels in the area.
A group of sorcerers and witches joined forces with a bunch of local vampires to do some shenanigans. There were fist fights and explosions and a short trip into hell. There was a lot going on. And it was looooong. I often chose to listen to news rather than put on my headphones and dive into this story.
I liked this a lot. But it isn't for everyone. Quite funny with a bunch of good little UF plots but very juvenile in the sexual relationships. It is a teenage male wet dream of polyamory, very unbalanced on the male side. Still the overall story has a lot of fun going on. The main character is too good to be true, yet the humor and the plot lines still work.
You end up liking him.
I didn't love him. The pacing of the book is the strangest that I have read recently with a bunch of novella type plo I liked this a lot. The pacing of the book is the strangest that I have read recently with a bunch of novella type plots with threads leading into the finale which is finally build up into a final plot line that is more complete than the plots leading into it.
Since the book in nearly pages, that still leaves a good portion to go. The premise is that the main character saves a demon succubus and an angel in the middle of a blood and sex ceremony that would bond the two to the evil sorcerer preforming the ritual.
Alex interrupts and attacks the men and in the processes bonds with the succubus. The angel and succubus have been affected by each other and a little good and bad has mixed in. So now Alex is being trailed by a succubus and it doesn't take long for him to give in to her charms. Along with her charms, we find out that any sex that her "master" has, fuels her and will help her heal.
This is the set up for a lot of the rest of the sex in the book. So we can get over him wanting to screw and screwing multiple people throughout the book. Alex is changing the demon and it is getting a lot of attention from the angels. Along with this attacks by other demons, hook ups, and witches, we get past life experiences thrown in to show how screwed up Alex's past lives have been.
It makes an appearance in the end but during the reading, you are not sure what the past has to do with the overall story. Really it doesn't, not until the very end. It was a fun romp and pretty original for me. I'm not sure that I'll read on as I cannot imagine this story and little side stories staying as fresh as this first one. Maybe one more. This book can easily be read in stints as there are good stopping points as one plot ends and another begins.
I put it down for a few days while finishing up a couple of challenges. Actually it was nice to take a break from the characters. I didn't have any problem coming back to it either. It was nice to come back too. It is like, I've had enough of that kind of humor for a bit and go to something more serious.
Yet, coming back to it isn't a problem. Not for everyone, depends on your humor bone and whether you can get with unbalanced relationship with the male sex. If you can, you are taken along for a ride through angels and demons, vampires and witch covens, friendships and enemies.
Silly and fun. Good Intentions and entertaining outcomes. Alex Carlisle leads a somewhat dreary life until on a stupid dare he interrupts an arcane ritual and has an Angel and a Demon Succubus bound to him.
What follows is a surprising good story with an interesting main character, a good supporting cast and a surprisingly deep story That and a whole lot of adult material! In all a cleverly written story with a sympathetic cast. Just head the warning in the blurb and you should be just fine. Recommended f Good Intentions and entertaining outcomes. Highly entertaining Urban Fantasy-Erotica that includes a succubus, angel, witches, sorcerers, vampires, werewolves.
The story centers around Alex who is a normal college student who stumbles on a black magic ceremony and while trying to save the two young women being bound and raped finds himself bound to both a succubus and an angel.
It is funny with a solid UF story wrapped around plenty of erotic sex. I used to be a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer back when that show was airing. Good intentions feel very Buffy inspired, only a bit more smutty. Overall I loved the world, the characters and most of all the overall tone of the book which again is very Buffy-esque. I listened to the audiobook version of this one and narrator Tess Irondale deserves a special shout out. Her performance is absolutely fantastic, I would go as far as calling this the best audio adaptation I have come across.
Rating 4. This is a new style of reading for me, most of the fantasy books I usually read do not have a lot of sex in them.
This book is trying to straddle the line between love and sex. The main character, Alex, breaks into a cemetery to take pictures. While he is there, he finds a ritual being performed where an demon and an Angel are being tortured and enslav Rating 4. While he is there, he finds a ritual being performed where an demon and an Angel are being tortured and enslaved.
He intervenes and in the process, he is the once that becomes the master for both the demon and the Angel. The demon is a succubus and sex is her weapon. Desires and sex is how she heals. So the demon starts having sex with Alex and this in turn makes him sexier to women, enough so that they all throw themselves at him. The demon wants this because the more sex that Alex has, the stronger she gets.
The author tries to tone down the sex somewhat. Alex is apparently an all around good guy. He is the type of guy who has been permanently been placed in the "friend-zone". The kind of guy that all women love, but none of them really want to be with him. Except, now he is super sexy, but the author does not want to change the character so he remains that "great guy". This is the weird part for me. If a woman can find a great guy and wants to have sex with him all the time, what else could they want.

In this case though, every one of the women he sleeps with only wants to "have fun" and they don't want anything serious. Despite this story being about angels, demons, and magic, I found that to be the most unbelievable part of the story.
The author also tried to make the reader feel more comfortable by saying that no one Alex was with could get pregnant or end up with any disease. He did not sleep with anyone who was married or underage, and no one who was in love with someone else unless all parties agreed and where okay with the situation. Again, the most unbelievable portion of the story.
That being said, I thought it was fun. I think most people would be okay with this story, even the ones who are religious, except that remember I said both and demon and an Angel were bound to Alex. I think anyone with a strong religious background might really dislike they way the Angel was written. This Angel had a worse mouth on her than any other character in the entire story. This story also gives an unorthodox religious view of sex meaning that heaven believes people should be able to have sex with anyone they want unless it involves breaking some kind of vow.
Overall this was fun, brainless entertainment. Definitely not for everyone, but an enjoyable listen audiobook View all 3 comments. This book was clearly written by a man. More like a man-boy. Really it was like peeking into an unpopular adolescent boys dream diary. I'm surprised at how bad this book was and why there are so many 5 star reviews for it. It's such a departure from his Poor Man's Fight series, which may not be the best written books, but are definitely fun and have at the very least a fluid plot line.
I won't rehash "the plot" here, but basically Alex rescues an angel and a succubus from becoming sex slaves to This book was clearly written by a man. I won't rehash "the plot" here, but basically Alex rescues an angel and a succubus from becoming sex slaves to some old white guys and then he ends up the Master to the succubus and she proceeds to fuck him until his dick is ready to fall off.
All of a sudden every girl wants him and Lorelei the succubus not only encourages other relationships, but he and his other sex partners are free from the worries of disease, pregnancy, and apparently jealousy. Every girl he meets and has sex with conveniently does not want to be in nor is looking for a relationship with him. They just want to basically use him as a sex-slave.
That's fair I guess. The plot line is practcally non-existent, there is no suspense, no real sense of danger or the fear of loss. It's not very funny as eluded to in other reviews and I truly disliked Rachel, a very foul-mouthed angel. The sex scenes were 'shrugs'. There also wasn't too much distinction between the characters. Lorelei is a succubus that has been around thousands of years fucking bad men to death but she had never attempted to do anything good or to help people or prevent pain.
She meets Alex and then all of a sudden she's basically just a hooker with a heart of gold. Makes no sense. Then there is Rachel. Again the same.
Been around forever. Is supposed to be a guardian angel but it's never established that she's done much good. She basically acts like a haughty spoiled brat that has truly an unnecessarily foul mouth. There is a subplot about Alex's past lives and that he's some eternal hero that can never find happiness, but that goes nowhere.
There are a bunch of filler characters that get caught up in a bunch of nonsense. Not worth mentioning. Also, this book has the gall of being around 22 hours long!
I was forced to forward through an endless amount of poorly written dialogue. If your into UF books about teenage boys wet-dreams have at it, otherwise don't waste your time. Feb 13, Christy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Definitely don't read this if you don't have a sense of humor that encompasses general irreverence as a rule.
This was a really fun read. I spent the weekend with a book I had a blast listening to. I'm on the 2nd book now, and I'm enjoying it as well, but the first was more all-out fun. It does a good job of showing why nice guys are worth a lot, and 4. It does a good job of showing why nice guys are worth a lot, and how they could--believably imo --wow the panties off all the girls.
By being nice. And considerate. And why that matters. Not just the lip service. Is it also a geeky male fantasy scratch the geeky part? Absolutely and unashamedly. So are grimdark books, but I don't feel like vomiting quite so often after reading the sex scenes. See panty comment above. Oh, and the erotica May 23, Kirkus rated it it was amazing. I don't like the urban fantasy erotic works where a girl has the problem if she should choose the sexy vampire or the smexy werewolf. Then they spends pages pondering what choice to make.
This book doesn't do this. I think a lot of girls will find this work enjoyable despite being more catering to men. The theme of the book is love and I think a lot of people will like Elliotts version of it. Apr 18, Coyora Dokusho rated it really liked it.
I stayed up till 5 in the morning and then woke up two hours later to stumble off to work Yeah, a review's not gonna happen now Then slept for 13 hours. It was glorious. School started yesterday! I have so much homework to do I'm not gonna avoid it this semester! I did that last semester and it Sucked! Somehow, even though there was a ton of sex in this book, it didn't feel gratuitous. I liked the characters but there was just something It was funny though.
Nov 13, Jaswin Joy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I had not read many books with much sex in them up until that book and I feel now I was overly critical of it. I just re-read my review and I feel I was criticizing the genre more than the book. I now see that is like complaining that Woody Woodpecker is too cartoony or reading a drama and complaining about it not being funny! This is a story about a succubus and an Angel ; complaining about the sexual situat Rating 4.
This is a story about a succubus and an Angel ; complaining about the sexual situations being unrealistic is just as foolish. This is a fantasy book about an Angel and a succubus being bound to a mortal; I should judge the story for how well the story was told, how interesting it is, the characters and how it made me feel. With that it mind, I felt this was a very good book. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator elicited a lot of emotion from me.
Despite there being a lot of sex in these stories, I also felt there was a lot of heart involved. There was love, respect, desire, lust but there wasn't pettiness of jealousy. I liked the twist on the main character remembering past lives and how that both helped him by allowing him to know past skills like sword fighting and war and hurt him sometimes those memories were overwhelming and came about at inopportune times.
I like how Alex always tries to do the right thing, he fights for his friends and his loves and won't let anyone or anything get between him and the people he cares about.
His friends are exactly the same way. They each have different personalities and they riff off each other pretty well, but no matter what, they have each others back. We find out that the FBI has a department that tracks supernatural beings and they are now trying to figure out what happened up in Seattle. Other vampires and supernatural creatures are also trying to figure out what happened. Our group ends up being hunted by not only the supernatural community but the FBI as well.
I thought the narrator did an awesome job with all the different accepts, especially the Irish accent from one of Alex's past lives. We find out more about why all of Alex's previous lives ended with violence at a young age. We also find out about Lorali's past before she became a succubus. While I did really enjoy this book, it was hard to follow sometimes, especially as it switched to describing a scene in Alex's past.
There did not seem to be a lead up to the flashbacks so it took me a while to figure out if it was a flashback or if the author was just describing a new character in the present. This book seemed to focus on the best aspects of everything. The sex was always described as amazing, the characters were righteous and always tried to do the right thing. The love was unquestionable.
Just make sure you don't read or listen to this book at work - that could be awkward. Feb 26, Sterling rated it it was amazing Shelves: I got this book because of a recommendation by a friend and I have to say I am surprised just how good it is.
For anyone who is interested in this book I would say do not hesitate unless you are put off by sexual content. There is a lot more sexual content than I think their needed to be, but that being said the story alone is fantastic.
This is book two in the series and I didn't read book one. I had no problem figuring out what was going on. It is definitely a standalone novel. I will be getti I got this book because of a recommendation by a friend and I have to say I am surprised just how good it is. I will be getting book one so I can enjoy the full story, and because I enjoyed this book so much I wish I had read book one first, only because now I know a lot about what transpired in the first book.
I would highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal, fantasy. Like I said don't read this book if you are put off by sexual content that doesn't add to the narrative of the story. If that doesn't bother you don't hesitate to start this book right now.
Great writing and storyline. I hope there will be a book three. I will download it. Aug 29, Anatole rated it did not like it Shelves: Yet another book for weak-willed cucks.

As good as the first book but it loses a star compared to the previous book because of the way it allows Amber, Rachel and Lorelai to betray the ones they love without it really having any consequences.
While all 3 had "good intentions" as it were and ultimately did the "right" thing, it still got wrapped up abit too nicely.

They really should have hurt Alex and Jason, and to see these characters just kinda shrug it off at the end without at least some time to went their frustrations was disappointing. The outcome was always gonna end up as it did in the series but at least the girls should have worked for it. Somehow I doubt that if the genders were reversed the guys would have gotten off as easy as the girls did in this series. This was a hard book for me to like because of my sensitivity to abuses of power.
In essence, the FBI investigates our heroes and makes arrests without warrants and, possibly, probable cause since all the evidence the FBI has indicates self-defense clearly. There was o This was a hard book for me to like because of my sensitivity to abuses of power.
There was only part of the story that really bugged me- one of the FBI agents gains access to the good guys by essentially seducing one of them although I believe she avoided actual sex with him if I remember right. This whole story line just feels like the author wanted a happy ending rather than following his characters through to their logical conclusions. In a word, it felt contrived, as did the happy ending all the way around. The head FBI guy is determined to have had his mind tampered with and someone else takes over and now everyone is friends.
Personally, I would have told them to fuck off- had they done their jobs well and according to the rules none of the shit would have happened. The happy ending gets worse since in the post-resolution wrap up we are treated to a scene where the FBI agent just shows up at the door of the guy she seduced. He apparently has already forgotten how he begged her to keep dating him in the middle of the crisis that resolved the conflict of the story. So, bottom line: May 20, Gareth Otton rated it liked it Shelves: Whether because the first one was a big surprise in how good it was and therefore raised my expectations or whether it was simply a case of this book being a struggle to write; I found that I did not enjoy this book anywhere near as much as its predecessor.
With the exception of Taylor, pretty much all the main characters return for this next instalment in the Good Intentions series.

However, rather than returning for another fun, action packed and raunchy sequel, they seemed to have returned for a book that spends far too much time with its characters simply talking about the same problems over and over. However, that being said there is still a lot to like about this book.
The characters do continue to grow, some of the relationships develop nicely and the world is definitely fleshed out to a level worthy of most mainstream urban fantasy novels. The issue is that though there was growth and potential there, you just know as a reader that it could have been so much better, it just felt a little tired.
The action wasn't as exciting, nor was there nearly enough of it. The sexy bits took a back seat to even more story expansion and talking. One of the most troubling things for me was how the author treated the two main love interests in this book. Lorelei has been reduced from the playfully sexy succubus to the role of a patient older woman dealing with her younger lover's inexperience. Rachel on the other hand has gone from the humorous and morally divided angel to a workaholic wife who spends far more time at work than in the relationship and has her priorities skewed.
Basically this is a much reduced sequel to the considerably more enjoyable Good Intentions. However, that is not to say I wouldn't read a sequel if one were released.
It may not have lived up to its predecessor but it was still an interesting read and one that is worthy of a bit of time. Overall a bit of a disappointment, but not necessarily a bad read. Oct 31, Gilbert Stack rated it really liked it. The sequel to Good Intentions is another exciting dive into the Seattle supernatural community. This time the FBI gets involved which causes unanticipated difficulties as our heroes seek to protect themselves from the hostile attention of vengeance-seeking vampires and werewolves determined to force Alex into their pack.
Aug 23, Steven Allen rated it liked it. I liked the second book of the Good Intentions series, but I had to wait until I was in the mood.
I have never been one for casual sex; which there is a bit of in Natural Consequences. I get that others are ok with casual or recreational sex and open relationships - I am not and I rarely enjoy reading stories where the MCs regularly have casual sex.
Kay writes good action scenes and the ending of the book is a fast paced hurl to the climax. Good characters, but somethings left me wondering like w I liked the second book of the Good Intentions series, but I had to wait until I was in the mood.
Good characters, but somethings left me wondering like why would a year old FBI agent have her tubes tied? I was sorry to see Taylor leave Alex's bed. I hope that in the next book, Taylor returns as she was one of my favorite characters. Starting the next book now. I also like the lesbian witches, but wish they would keep their bedroom antics just to Alex, his angel and succubus. Nov 19, Seonaidh rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this if anything a little better than the first one.
There were fewer 'random' sexual encounters, though I think there was a bit more nookie in it overall. Many of the minor characters from the first book got some more development, and we got some more backstory on the major ones, a lot of loose ends and 'hows and whys' from the first book get tied up.
I wasn't expecting an awful lot from this series, so i was really pleasantly surprised by both the overall quality of the writing for contr I liked this if anything a little better than the first one.

Hamilton's frankly piss poor understanding of the meaning of some of the words she uses makes me outright angry, and that's the least of what gets past her editing process and the story telling and world building is solid.
Jun 08, Jon Abbott rated it really liked it Shelves: Even better than the first book in the series, although this one too suffers from too many, too long, sex scenes, but fewer than book one. If you are willing to admit to skipping them, a plot with a demon, a guardian angel and a moral mortal who doesn't hesitate to act is a great start. This second book explores the ramifications of beings from heaven and hell loving together while having each other's back. Free on KU when I read it and well worth the price.
Jun 19, Aaron Nagy rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 26, Daniel Bice rated it really liked it Shelves: Dec 29, Sam Martin rated it really liked it. Still a lot of sex, but you can fast forward it like I did! Love Rachel scenes! I rated it 3.
A little to much sex has cause it to lose a half a point there. I felt it slow down some of story lines. I love how past life serve a purpose.
Without it Alex couldn't get out a bad situations! FBI made me mad but again had a purpose. My b Still a lot of sex, but you can fast forward it like I did! My biggest reason it has lost a whole star is Alex and Lorelei relationship.
Yes, she is a Succubus! I have no problem if he says that she could have one night stand. But Alex didn't have to give into her wanted to have sex with any man as much she wanted to! That kinda makes him a cuckolding even tho they are not married! He went through so much pains in his past life's from his lovers by cheating or betraying his trust!
He even told her he couldn't deal with her being with another man. Yet to have him turn around to feel guilty of the double standard so soon! I can except the one night stand but more then that I feel is a betrayal to Alex. If she loves him like she said then she wouldn't hurt him like that or make him feel guilty for wanted that! She does get something out of his dolly with other partners where as he gets nothing but a broken heart from her!
That all I'm saying!
The Summer of Good Intentions
Overall I will still read the next book! Nov 29, Dave Stone rated it really liked it. The writing is a little better, but the ending felt sad to me. Book 2 of the Good Intentions trilogy get a slight change of tone. Elliott Kay takes this one a little more seriously. That cheeky Rom-com with sex feeling gets toned down in favor of a more sophisticated approach.
Still a pretty damn great book. Other than some strange choices by the author and exposi The writing is a little better, but the ending felt sad to me. Other than some strange choices by the author and exposition dialog during sex scenes Seriously? Why do it like that?
When Lorelei tells Alex she wants to see other men, That scene just felt so badly executed. Yes, Lorelei sleeping with other men is an obvious progression. Yes, it's totally fair and just. All that and Elliott Kay managed to make it feel so unsavory. The timing was wrong, the wording was wrong, the tone was wrong, ya know what?
I feel like everything after they escape the FBI was out of wack. I do like this book a lot, but that ending Jul 07, Rehcra rated it it was amazing.
Elliott really painted himself into a corner with the first book in this series, so I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this book. I was full on expecting my suspension of disbelief to be obliterated early on because of the basic premise of a succubus love interest being.. Throw in the Angle and the fact that the author doesn't treat them like any other character and all turns out into a great book that is erotica. These books are strongly geared towards a male fantas Elliott really painted himself into a corner with the first book in this series, so I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this book.
It really comes down to if you are willing to read erotica and if you are fine with any inequalities in any of the situations being pointed out to you. And the erotic taking a back seat to a great book despite there being plenty of it. Even if you don't want to read this erotica you should still go read these books blurbs.
There awesome! Despite how good I found book one in this series, My expectations for this book were low. But in part because of that this is my favorite book in this series so far. Jul 26, Mukkaar rated it liked it. I can't really find "faults" but one on this book, more like irritation. Otherwise, this is a really good story which I enjoyed a bunch.
Minor annoyance being that mc seems to be on the infinite loop of getting over some subject and then worrying about it after a few pages. On the other hand, it makes him seem really good person in story, but at the same time, it's just so redundant because he seemed to be over it in the previous chapter.
Not to mention he just broods over everything. It's like h I can't really find "faults" but one on this book, more like irritation. It's like he can't stand having a good thing going on and then he must pick it apart and "talk" about it.
I think it's good they set rules and talk, but it feels like he's making smaller problems into a lot bigger problems. The first book was awesome, but I felt kind of stressed reading this. Also not a fan of affair developments with Lorelei. That was maybe worth only First one was good, but this one just became kind of heavy overall for me to read.
Our extremely calm and collected protagonist, Alex Carlisle, is back; still wrestling with his inner demons pun intended while dealing with flashbacks from previous lives. There is much going on in this volume; vampires and werewolves, interesting new background on Lorelei, and the surprising reveal of a paranormal department within the FBI. This brings much unwanted publicity to Alex, his friends, and Lorelei.
The story and the characters are wonderful. Alex has his hands full 2nd pun and I look forward to further adventures. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed.
