Dr. Sophie Gable wasn’t expecting her peaceful getaway to be shattered by the arrival of a half-dazed, dead-sexy guest. Thomas Nicasio has obviously been traumatized, and Sophie thinks she knows by what. There’s something about Thomas’s father that he can’t—or won’t—remember. Something that could get them both killed. Still she can’t resist Thomas’s electrifying seduction—or her instincts to help him…

An ex-Navy explosives specialist, Thomas has never felt this type of volatile need for a woman. Even while he’s grieving the deaths of his brother and nephew, something in Sophie makes Thomas want to overtake her, and each time he does, her willing submission makes him want her all the more. But danger is lurking close by, and if he can’t face the demons of his past, he and Sophie could be the next victims in a pattern of meaningless violence…

I wanted to like this book, but this time round, it was a no-go. Explosive by Beth Kery starts out well, but gets confusing and a bit disjointed, for me, around the 50-page mark. I put the book down, hoping to get inspired and interested to delve back in, and I did… for about another 20 pages. I just couldn’t, any more. I tried.

The sex scenes were all right, but did not have me coming back for more. The story dragged on, and this was only in the first fifty pages. I don’t know what else it was, specifically, in the story that turned me off this book, but the fact remains, I could not finish reading this. I felt confused and disappointed, so I went and ate some chocolate.

I do not like that I cannot articulate what, exactly, I did not like, but it feels like it’s on the tip of my tongue, byett I still can’t get it. Ughhhhhhhh!

That said, maybe one day I will return to this story. But that day is not today.

Thanks to the lovely people of Lovehoney for sending me Beth Kery’s Explosive to review for their Book of the Month club.
