Enos was a difficult book to read and get through. It was a book that seemed to not really know what direction it needed to go. The storyline was muddled and convoluted, and I had to re-read paragraphs and pages over again because it didn’t make sense. It seemed to move between being a badly directed and acted B grade porno movie (but written down) to a plausible story right back to holy crap I could hear the “boom-chica-wow-wow” 70’s music playing in my head whenever anything sexual starting showing up.
From the very beginning the jump-right-in-and-give-blow-jobs and “do what he wants” sex scenes (whether they were between Enos and women or even men) were not riveting, but so badly written I grimaced while reading them and kept saying “this has to get better”. But it didn’t. I tried to give this book the benefit of the doubt but it was too much.
If this had been a storyline that I could follow or understand then yes, I would have given it at least 3 stars. But this book had huge amounts of sex thrown in without any reason for it or cause. I am not a prude; if a story has a lot of sex or BDSM or graphic sex, but it makes sense within the context of the plot/storyline then by all means go for it. This story had nothing like that, it was as if there was nothing much for plot but hey let’s throw porno style sex in it and everyone will read it.
Maybe this style of writing is a style someone would appreciate, but I can say that I have read my share of regency all the way to graphic romance and I just can’t appreciate the writing style of this at all.
