Dear Romance Novel Authors,

Please do not place a sex scene in a novel just for the sake of a sex scene, I really would prefer a passionate kiss rather than an ill-placed sex scene inside a burning mill.


P.S – I don’t read romance novels for sex. I read them so that I can get lost in someone else’s life and escape mine. I read them so that I can relive the joyous occasions from my own life through the characters. When I can relate and empathize with the characters, even better!

Well, I definitely had a lot to say about such a short little novella! It is worth reading just to get to those silly scenes and have your say….I wonder if that mill scene had anything to do with the title….curious and curioser….

*Thank-you Sabrina Jeffries, Netgalley & Pocket Star Books for the ARC.
**This title was previously published under the Anthology “What Happens Under the Mistletoe”

  • oh this sounds so disappointing. I am like you though, it drives me crazy when authors writes sex scenes for the sake of sex and not the romance. I have a hard time understanding why authors do sex scenes in scenes like this because REALLY??!! It would never happen in real life scenarios.

    • I know! The author just totally looses the reader and really a fire??? Such a bad move to chuck in a sex scene in a burning building lol
