I recently finished the book Pick Me by Kristine Mason. I received a signed copy of the paperback as a prize when I entered an online contest for her Shadow of Danger tour. While she does not ask me to review the book, and I do not know her personally, I like to share with you my thoughts on what I read. I admit that I struggled a bit with this read.
This book features romance in a way that I am not used to reading. I don’t normally read steamy books but, as I explained, this one was a win in a contest. So, I wanted to give it a go. I felt uncomfortable with some of the scenes as they described character Colt Walker’s excitement in his pants for Valentina Bonasera and went on to describe sex between them. It was quite descriptive or, at least, more than I am used to reading. I admit to enjoying more subtle romantic gestures shown in books, such as kissing, but am way more a gal who likes to read about plot, conversation and characters’ intellectual profiles.
So, obviously, this is just my take on the book. With that in mind, Pick Me by Kristine Mason does have an interesting plot. The main character Valentina agrees to switch from being the Production Assistant of the TV reality dating show Pick Me to being the bachelorette on the show. Then she discovers that Bachelor One is actually Colt, the man she had a one-night stand with earlier in the year. It all just got complicated! That plot twist is a good one, so I give the author Mason props for it.
In conclusion, while I thought the plot was creative, I felt uncomfortable with the sexy language and scenes throughout the book Pick Me. I skimmed over those steamy scenes. I give the book 3 out of 5 stars. I looked on Amazon and the book is free right now (Kindle version) if you want to give it a read too; clicking the link above or the photo will take you there.
Have you read any steamy books lately?
