Review: A Kiss in the Dark by Tiffany White


From Amazon.com: 
To supplement her meager salary as a book editor, Brittany Astor answers an ad to read aloud for a client. Expecting a nice little old lady, Brittany is shocked to instead find notorious playboy Ethan Moss. Temporarily blinded, Ethan was in hiding.

It is the perfect opportunity for a shy book editor to live out her fantasy of having a wild fling with the man of her erotic dreams.

But how will she bear it when the fantasy ends and Ethan no longer needs her?

 My Rating: 2 stars out of 5

This was one of those "it was ok" kind of books. It could have easily been finished in a day, but I found myself constantly putting it down to move on to something else and having to come back to it. The characters were flawed which was a plus, but there was something about the overall novel that made it hard for me to stay interested. Maybe it had something to do with all the secrets between them, or Brittany's stalkerish scrapbooks on Ethan's life, or perhaps it was the "erotic literature" scenes between them (when Brittnay is reading to Ethan), that I felt took away from the overall story rather than add to it. Whatever the problem or shortcomings, I was able to finish this novel, and I definitely think there are some people would there to whom this book would have a greater appeal. It just wasn't for me.
