When Fiona Sterling finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, it is pretty evident that her life is about to change. Ryker Black has a job to do and he never leaves witnesses behind.
In VERY BAD THINGS, authors Jenika Snow and Sam Crescent throw their characters into close quarters where anything can happen.
Having read books written separately by these authors, my expectation was that a collaborative effort would likely make my e-reader sizzle. I'll definitely give it high marks in the erotic arena because there is plenty of steam generated. These two authors never pull any punches when it comes to the heat factor.
However, the storyline simply wasn't strong enough to support the toe-curling action. I understand that because this is a fairly short read there is not a lot of room for novel-style development, but as a reader, I would have liked more substance.
I couldn't quite swallow the whole "yes, you just killed a man but let's have sex" concept. Although Ryker's character was well written as a rather forceful Alpha male, Fiona's character seemed weak and underdeveloped.
Had there been a stronger foundation, I would have left feeling completely satisfied.
