Review: Wargasm (Payne Brothers #3) by Sosie Frost


Print Length: 
Publisher:  (May 28, 2018)

From Goodreads.com: Marius Payne is the kind of soldier who makes me go commando.

He’s the only man I’ve let invade my foxhole, but now he’s occupying my heart.

And that’s when he drops a bombshell.

Marius is arrogant. He’s broody. And he’s wounded in more ways than one. The only way he can secure a cushy job in DC is if he softens his image and transforms from a rogue Navy SEAL into a family man.

So, of course, I agree to have his baby.

Make love, not war.

Then make war.

My Rating: 2 stars out of 5

This is the first novel by this author I have read, so I can speak from experience that you do not have to read the other novels in this series to enjoy this one. 

And don't get me wrong, there is something to be enjoyed about this novel. To be frank, I think they did a phenomenal job with the inner demons faced by a lot of military members when they come home from war. 

The rest of this... this whatever it was? Hahahahah NO. 

I thought I was getting a story where two friends agree to have a child. What I got? Was two people we were literal STRANGERS who if they only had better communication would not have found themselves in the predicament they were in. And still this may have been salvageable, if the approach had been better. I feel like for strangers, there should have been a more rational discussion before he just takes her virginity and spends the rest of the book banging her every chance he gets in an attempt to get her pregnant. 

The final complaints are the constant instances where the wrong words are used (although, I am hoping this will be resolved before the final print), and the overuse of the word tummy. Yes, I will fully admit that the last part is a personal pet peeve of mind, but when you read passages like "I am going to put a baby in your tummy" and "the alcohol choose that moment to swirl in my tummy" it makes it hard to stay invested. These are adults. They should be speaking like it.

I do believe there are people who will enjoy this novel (as evidenced by the 4 and 5 star reviews it has already accumulated), however this one was just not for me. I do not believe I will continue on with the other stories in this series.

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
