Review: Fascinated by Marissa Day

Fascinated by Marissa Day

won from The Book Pushers

Synopsis from Goodreads
Pleasure was an elusive dream... 

Alicia Hartwell has never experienced the pleasure of passion. Despite all her efforts to comprehend the notion of romantic love, it has remained an utterly foreign concept to her. Resigned to the life of a spinster, Alicia is therefore stunned when she receives a marriage proposal from the highly eligible bachelor, Lord Carstairs. ...until she met him. 

But Lord Edward Carstairs is not a normal nobleman. He's a Catalyst--able to draw magical power from the natural world for use in spells by human Sorcerers. He senses that Alicia is a victim of enchantment, one that has suppressed her erotic urges. Powerfully attracted to her, he's certain that he's the one to help her experience pleasure for the first time. 

But as Edward and Alicia's mutual passion burns hot, their fragile love and trust could be threatened by family secrets and a new magical intrigue neither imagined.

4/10

It's a raunchy historical paranormal novel which means that there is plenty of not very good sex scenes and minimal amount of plot and character development.

I've read it because it's very short and easy, but did I enjoy it? No.


My problem is that I couldn't see much spark, no character depth. They were just token characters. Lord Carstairs is such and such... Include handsome, powerfully build, angsty and aloof. Check. Lady Alicia is such and such... Beautiful, innocent and very willing to go for it all in sexual explorations straight away. Check.

The world-building is non-existent. There is this powerful group of Sorcerers and Catalysts working for the government against Fae in England. Why? How did it start? Why are they fighting each other? I haven't had a clue.

*sigh*

Overall, it's readable but only if you have nothing else at the moment and need to pass the time.

Очень плохо и как-то довольно вяло написано.  Либо автор не может, либо не хочет...

Куда ни посмотри, если это исторический паранормал, то не хватает деталей в построении мира, чтобы историю сделать интересной или же развития характеров, которые так и остаются шаблонными.

Если это эротика, то секс тоже не вдохновляет. Неловкие сцены без какой-либо искорки между персонажами и довольно пошло.

Поэтому читать можно только, если под рукой на данный момент ничего нет. Книга короткая (и на этом спасибо!) и читается довольно быстро. Не рекомендую.
