On the Record (The Record Series Book 2) – [kindle edition] $3.99

For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…

The sexy second book in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

Okay so, maybe I missed something here, but I just wasn’t feeling this book. It was just way too much Liz just rehashing the same feelings over and over again telling us the same thing repeatedly. She’s really not even that interesting of a character for me. What made her interesting were the people around her, so the fact that we spend almost the entire book as she is wading through what has to be one of the most boring relationships in history, it makes me wonder what the fuck was the point of this book.

A man that she supposedly cares about so greatly is missing until the very end of the book. Every now and again, and I am not joking when I say it was now and again, he pops up as a teaser and it was the only thing that kept me going. I really just wanted to skip to the end of the story, or at least the parts where Brady pops in, because really that was what I was there for.

Brady Maxwell, sexy politician with a filthy mouth was so underutilized in this story. Had there been more of him, it would have made this a 5 star read. Instead it gets a weak 3 and all of those stars belong to Brady, because he’s worth every one of them. I don’t want to beat this book down too much. I guess there was a point to it. And there are a lot of people who liked it. I just didn’t (all that much).

Hopefully the third book won’t be a Liz fest, because if it is, I will be sorely disappointed. This is supposed to be Liz and Brady’s story. Fingers crossed that’s what the final installment will be.

**SPOILERS**

Okay, I am going to be honest and just say that this book, based on it’s description oversold itself. Here I was thinking that I would be reading a sweet May to December romance, when in fact, what I read was porn. Or should I say Hardcore Erotica. No, I’m going back to porn. My description of erotica is that there is an element of romance. While this book was supposed to have that element, it felt forced and in sincere. That said, may the filthy review commence.

I’m sorry, but I have to spoil this one for you. It has to be done other wise I won’t be able to share some of the absolutely ridiculous moments of the story. Let’s start out with Cheryl and her therapist. I’ll by pass the husband, bottom line, he’s a bit a douche bag. He drinks, uses her for sex and therefore she resents him. End of relationship. So back to her Therapist; Rochelle. Yep, Rochelle. I don’t quite get what Rochelle was in the mix of things. Part time therapist, part time friend, part time lover. I was very confused.

She then moved forward and pressed a soft kiss on Rochelle’s mouth

The plot was completely unnecessary to the story. It served no other purpose than to titillate and for me, it didn’t even do that. And the problem wasn’t so much that they were enjoying each other in a sexual way, it was they enjoyed each other in a sexual way to the very end, when it just felt like they shouldn’t be anymore.

And there was Brandon. He was just so fucked up as a character, I couldn’t keep my head straight. He’s a college student, he’s a druggie, he’s a drug dealer, he’s a master manipulator. What the hell is he? Who the hell is he? Why did he go to Rochelle’s house and steal her shit? One thing I do know about Brandon

I worship the vagina, meaning I treat it as if it were the best part of your body, and the most important part of our sex. To me, the orgasm is the single greatest thing between two humans. Specifically, a female orgasm.

And oh man did he. He was doing it every couple of chapters. I don’t think I’ve read so much vagina worship. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy reading about a man going down on a woman as much as the next person, but the amount of worshiping that was going on here was a little more than my mind could take.

I’m really glad that this was a short story, if this was a book that covered a series, it might have been better, at least it could have had a little more character development, as it stood. It was short, smutty and utterly filthy

Brandon pulled his cock out suddenly and a burst of cum shot from Cheryl’s pussy. She flexed her stomach muscles as tightly as she could, drenching Rochelle, who eagerly licked up the juice from Cheryl’s thighs

If that’s how you like your books, this is the one for you. And for only 99¢ it might even be a steal. Be warned though, there is so much going on and most of it is happening in the final chapters. But if that’s your speed, go for it I say…
