Vanilla on Top

Vanilla on Top - C.J. Ellisson 1.5 starsOkay, this book... I was excited to read it. I haven't disliked anything in the Brazen line so far, but oh man this one missed the mark. I loved the plot. I even liked the characters. But the awkward descriptions during sex or relating to the sex were just too much for me. Let's give some examples, shall we?My shaft wedges between the firm halves of her buttHer butt, really?One wet finger probes between my ass cheeks, searching for my tight pucker.THIS IS FROM A MALE POV. NO, JUST. NO.My arousal springs free, bouncing back to slap against my stomach.Someone could lose an eye.the rigid pearl of my desire*facepalm*I run a thumb over one stiff nubbin of flesh.*giggle* NUBBIN *giggle*The sensitive helmet of my cock rubs against my underwearGreat, now I'm picturing your dick as Rick Moranis in Spaceballs. THANKS FOR THAT.tease her erect budLet's just call a spade a spade, okay? Or in this case, a cock a cock and a nipple a nipple and a clit a freaking clit! Who says nubbin? Besides Chandler Bing. What man refers to their dick as their prick? And if I ever, ever refer to my nipples as rosy peaks, please, shoot me. Not everything has to have a description. Call it what it is. Awkward smut is awkward.So yeah, I probably won't be recommending this to anyone, unless they can handle the odd wording, or the less than genuine male POV. Or unless they just want to giggle like I did.Full review:
