Passion (Lisa Valdez)

0 out of 5 stars

I couldn’t finish this book. Though it was classified and recommended to me as a historical romance, it is, instead, poorly written erotica, that barely gives a nod to the time period and setting. The three chapters I was almost able to finish featured completely unrealistic, misogynistic sex scenes (I’m sorry, I don’t see how rearrangement of womb or cervix is supposed to be sensual in any way). The language is vulgar, the sex scenes ludicrous to the point of hilarity, and it’s hard to ¬†imagine how the book would have resolved with any amount of emotion.
