This book makes me very sad. It started off with so much promise only crash and burn.The first warning flag was the cliché fat, happy, smart girl that instantly lusted after the main character. It bugged me, but it wasn’t a deal breaker, even with her incessant need to grope the main character. Then at eight percent “Grimmy” has an awkwardly written graphic sex scene with a ghost. Still not a deal breaker, I can skim with the best of them. Then there is the meet, and greet with Grimmy’s [...]
Sergent Grim has had a hard year, but things get stranger when he is commissioned to train a new unit for the military. Here are my thoughts, bad and good. Negatives: I probably would have liked this book better except for two things: all of the proselytizing and the fact that it read like a 14 year old boys dream journalwet dream journal. (It's a strange combo I know.) Lets face it Joseph Grim has a harem. He is one man alone with seven women. One is old, one is fat (in other words undesirable) [...]
This book wasn't really what I was expecting. But that is not said in a bad way, it was a great book, just really not what I thought it would be.There is Grim, he had a horrible experience and was drowning himself in booze when the Army catches back up with him and assigns him to train a group of extremely different women. When everything starts hitting the fan they all come together to try and save the country. Its hard to summarize what was going on without giving a lot of the book away so I h [...]
I skipped *several* pages. I'm not against sex, and I'm not against morally discussion, but this was at times similar to Anita Blake's books 9 to 15 in her worse logorrheic moments. But it was funny to read on, even if it's quite scary to be in the mind of a sexually oriented man.
this book is way cool, and sooooo funny. i was laughing all the way to the end
The imagery in this book took me into a hentai movie and kept me laughing. I loved the characters.
great story! already diving into next book.I would spend more time fleshing out this review but that's time I would rather spend reading the next installment.just go read it for yourself!
One good thing I can say about this book is that I read it through and came to the last page without being bored.Conflicted, yes. Perplexed, of course. Irritated, check. But not bored.This book popped out on Am. (even if there the author's name is J.L.M. Visada) among gay fiction and I really do not understand why as it only casts two lesbians as side characters while the rest of it is a macho-sex apotheosis with the main character managing to bed all the women.I am a man myself -if a very gay o [...]
This is a hard book to rate. I know a lot of other reviewers have pointed out the issues with proselytizing and lack of line-editing, so I'm going to skip that. I kind of want to skip all of the negatives because I'm pretty sure other reviewers have already hit on them. The errors are what they are and I'm not defending them. I would just rather focus on the positives. Because, honestly, this book had the potential to be great.As an origin story for a modern Grim Reaper, Joseph's journey from br [...]
This book isn't made to be taken too seriously - you can tell by the tone used from the beginning and the situations that crop up, a lot of which would otherwise beggar belief. It's outrageous, funny, and very steamy.It's very much a male fantasy and I think it will appeal most to young men. The main character, Grim, is put in charge of a team of women who are all hot in different ways (and they all fancy him of course) and he basically goes about fixing all of their problems. I think a lot of w [...]
I'm a woman and I loved this book. If a book can make me giggle snort out loud, then it's a winner. I even overlooked spelling/grammar/continuity mistakes because I liked the book that much. I'm tired of books that take themselves too seriously and in the process forget that they were made for the reader. This book felt like walking in on private jokes amongst a group of friends and being included in that group. I do have a lean towards urban fantasy with a healthy dash of black humour and a lib [...]
The premise was interesting. At times, it was a bit sexual in terms of the focus of the narration. In addition, I regrettably must affirm what other reviewers have mentioned. It was clear that the ending would be a quick ending, simply by how close to the end the action actually began moving towards it, and in all honesty, the ending felt very rushed, as it was not given enough time to be set up, and one thing seemed to have not explanation beforehand. Still, the ending did at least leave some t [...]
3,5Let me start by saying this is what i think PNR for men would read like.What i really liked about the book were the well thought out characters, their relationships and dialog. At times it made me laugh and snort, other times it made me sad and compassionate.While the plot had twists and turns the end was decidedly rushed and could have been polished more. All in all, it was an enjoyable read and i would recommend it to readers who like urban fantasy.
Longbut made it throughI am not much of a syfy fan but did stick with the book to the end. it was ok, but ready for something new. It wasn't what I thought I ordered, so will be more careful in my selections next time.
I am all about fantasy stories, supernatural stories (esp. Stephen King) and fiction based on historical figures (i.e. King Arthur). This little book was engaging but to my taste a little "campy" for me. It was like supernatural beings meets 50 shades of gray. It was alright.
Not exactly what I thought it would be but it was surprising in a good way. A good blend of action, fantasy and romance. Will definitely follow. :)
I really enjoyed this story. I had two different friends recommend this book and I loved it. Read it in one setting. It was a fun, action packed and a unique story. Definitely worth the read.
Great Bookwell I have to say it been awhile since I read a good book that was free and it was funny if u hadn't read this book give it a try
Jesus is not the equivalent of GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!just saying ;-)
