Breath on Embers

Breath on Embers - Anne Calhoun Well surprise, surprise…Susan reads a M/F book…I’ve made it no secret that I’ve pretty much crossed completely over to M/M books and have a hard time enjoying M/F books. Too many annoying women characters snaking the hot, perfect man. Not fair! (*stomps feet in a tantrum*)But, I wanted to read something smutty and easy and felt “Breath on Embers” might be just the ticket.And for 6+ chapters, I was feeling it! Ronan is a HOT NY firefighter who is lookin’ for love. Thea is a widow, still grieving, convinced she’s dead inside and just wants sex. For 9 months they go on this way. Reading through, I was falling for Ronan and rooting for him to convince Thea to give him a REAL chance. And then, it happened…the story was ruined…ruined by a ridiculous and needless ménage scene. WHY do authors do this? So un-freaking-necessary. And then I was just over it.Yes, it wraps itself (rather hastily) up in a nice tidy bow at the end. But, puh-lease…by this time, I was so annoyed by the curveball that I shut down. 4 stars for the first 3/4 of the book and -1 star for the last 1/4.
