I'm a hopeful cynic.

Wicked Ties  - Shayla Black I'm not sure about this one...It had all the characteristics of a classic romance novel with the added twist of the D/s relationship between the main characters and a dose of crime/thriller just to make things a little more interesting. The sex scenes were scorching hot and I enjoyed them profusely, the BDSM elements believable and well rendered.But I found myself wanting to skim through both characters' page-long internal dialogue and tormented thoughts, Morgan's constant "he-loves-me/he-loves-me-not" and "does submission make me a slut" moments. There were just too many of them and they were somewhat annoying and tiring.Plus, I found the whole "revenge" situation pretty weak and kinda boring. I'm sure the author could have found another, a tad more original, way to bring Morgan and Jack together.But still, this remains a hot read with an even hotter male hero and I will probably be reading the next book in the series.
