Review: Destructively Alluring (Allure 1) [Kindle Edition]
First of all, I don’t know why the Kindle PC app doesn’t allow me to share my progress. That would be awesome!
I “purchased” this book at the rec of a friend who is always on the lookout for freebies. This book, if one can even call it that, had potential despite its overused premise, predictability, and cliched terms and scenes. There were hints of an actual plot with a mention of the MCs shared history, but it never went anywhere. I had a few issues with believability and continuity — ladies, if a man goes all caveman on you, professing that he wants everything with you (and means it), do you think he wants you to skip out on him in the middle of the night? I don’t think so.
He talked about his johnson so much, that it seemed like the narrator.
I kept reading, holding out hope that this story wasn’t simply a blow-by-blow of Dorian’s quest to get some barely legal poon. There was little that made me care about these characters except the potential drama of Dorian having to tell Demi’s dad about their relationship, however, that isn’t hinted at until the last couple of paragraphs.
The book ended abruptly with an epilogue that should have been simply another chapter. Instead of a glimpse into the future, we’re given a look at the next morning. I suppose that’s the future in the author’s mind. The last 17% of the book was a teaser for another book. Really? Again, I’m glad I didn’t spend any money on this. I only wasted a couple of hours of an already dull day. I didn’t see anywhere that made it obvious that this was a series (I blindly downloaded the book because it was free). That would have made me feel a lot less taken.
