I've been a little restless these last two weeks. My schedule has been busy, but my mind has not been stimulated. I've been going through some painful turmoil with my arm and the resulting PT, MRI, doctor visits, thirty foot needles, etc. have been time consuming. Briefcase flew out for a week long trip on Mother's Day. My kids have been so busy I've barely seen them.
I'm restless. I'm antsy. I need … something.
I downloaded a few highly recommended books to my Kindle. I consumed them in no time. I was tired of thinking books. I decided to download an Erotic Novel. Technically, I guess it's a Romance Novel but ..? I don't read trashy novels very often. Once in awhile I'll read one at the beach when I totally want my brained turned off and my body turned on. Probably one book per year filled with mindless smut is enough for me.
Now, I'm not going to tell you the name of the book I downloaded so don't ask. It's supposed to be hot and steamy and rawr! Instead, I find myself laughing out loud and mentally editing the book as I read it.
In the book the heroine has "two strong sexy men catering to her erotic whims." First of all, I immediately nicknamed the heroine Ho Ho. Once I did that, it became very difficult to take her exploits seriously.
Ho Ho has two men wanting to please her.
How many women really want two men? I mean in reality, not in fantasy. Two men to drop their socks on the floor, invite guests over unannounced, bitch about the bills, leave the toilet seat up, and "forget" to mention when their family is coming to visit.
Hypothetically, of course.
There are a lot of threesomes in this particular book which I wasn't expecting. Not that I really took any time to form expectations, but I figured it would be a typical romance novel with a man and a woman who overcome obstacles to eventually be together.
Isn't that the case in just about every heterosexual romance story out there?
Instead, I'm reading about Ho Ho and her two men. One of her men is Genius and the other is Hung.
Once in awhile she spends some *time* just with Genius. They discuss physics while they're getting physical. <snicker> Other times she spends *time* just with Hung. Ho Ho and Hung definitely do not discuss physics together. Ho Ho and Hung do take a lot of showers together though.
Showers with very slippery soap as it so happens. Oh, and there's a conveniently located shelf in the shower at the perfect height for ….
Frequently Ho Ho, Genius, and Hung all get together at the same time.
I don't think Ho Ho knows that Genius and Hung sneak away together now and then too.
And oh yes, one time Ho Ho snuck off with one of Genius's female staff members too.
This book has something for everyone I suppose.
I just wish I could stop laughing long enough to take it seriously.
Do you ever read romance or erotic novels? Does anyone have any good recommendations? Perhaps novels with an actual plot in addition to steamy romance?
