A FSOG knockoff? Little Black Dress by James Patterson and Emily Raymond

When I first red Little Black Dress by James Patterson and Emily Raymond, I thought this book was a 4 star read. It went a little too fast for me, but I liked it.

After reading it, I realized my younger self was wrong…

SO wrong…

To start out, I put this book in my DNF pile. I felt like this book was trying to mimic the success of Fifty Shades of Grey.

There was a LOT of sex in this book.

I mean, almost every chapter was a sexual scene.

When I first picked up this book, I thought this was going to be a Thriller. It was advertised as such on the cover, because it didn’t have a “Bookshot Flames” on it like the other romances.

It starts off with the main character, Jane Avery, buying a Black dress from the thrift store.

The…chater 1…

A sex scene…

And to make it worse, l it was with a CO-WORKER!

It’s not hard to have sex with people you WORK WITH! That’s a disaster waiting to happen!

Throughout the rest of what i read, it was meet someone, attempt to (or have) sex, see her therapist, and restart.

It’s a general rule that if you take out the sex scenes out of an erotic romance, you can still have a story.

This…Yeah, that doesn’t apply…

I gave this a good rating at the beginning. Now, I would give it a 2/5 stars. Mainly because I enjoyed the writing style.
