The Kissing Bough By Madelynne Ellis was at the time when I picked it free on amazon Now it’s $2.99.
This is a Regency Menage which when I saw that I was like ‘I am so here for this’ Basically the story revolves around Viola who was ruined during her debut but really she might have been some what assaulted honestly it’s not really clear but it came off to me that way and it maybe a trigger for some. Anyway she encounters Percy Gilling and Lord William Ricborough who are cousins not only that they are also lovers looking for the perfect woman to share, enter Viola. Now all this time Viola’s family treats her like garbage (another possible trigger for some) allowing her to leave the nursery ( you read that right) once a year for the Christmas party and to run about the village in which she goes and stands under the kissing bough acting desperate for attention, which was uncomfortable to read, just why? Which poses the next question why is still in the nursery? Fast forward to our hero’s seeing her and Percy starts to have naughty thought that involve her legs wrapped around him and him sucking her chin….. why..who sucks someones chin?? am I wrong? that is just not sexy. There is also the talk of lady parts now if you know me and follow me any where on social media I instantly perk up at the mention of something dirty, erotic,or a hero talking and or being dirty/naughty in any way shape or form. that being said using the quim to describe lady parts while it might be dirty in that time period does not do anything for me. I had to google it. The sex scene was good, but so much took away from it that I just didn’t get the excitement I was hoping for, Percy basically gives her an ultimatum “come bang us or forget about it ” which he was basically telling her. Really? Then she has to sneak out of the nursery ( why the hell is she in there??) and out a window in the cold and snow and scale twelve ledges to reach them…… I feel like they had better have had magic cocks for me to do that. I mean I am not sure what these magic cocks would imply or do precisely all I know is that if I am in my nightie in the cold and snow scaling ledges to come have sex with you and your cousin it better be worth it and you better go out in that storm and bring me Starbucks afterwards….
Over all I am glad the book was free. I recommend waiting for it to drop back down to free or even $0.99 cents if you want to give it a read.
