Genre: Erotic Romance
Heat Rating: 4
After a bad divorce, being on her own is exactly the life Carol Bell wants. She is careful to form no permanent relationships as she travels from place to place. She's a sketch artist for several fashion magazines and cosmetic firms. Her love life is active. She likes sex, content to let that be all that comes from her affairs. Until the day two hunky electricians arrive at her apartment to repair her air conditioner.
Her apartment is warm, but she soon finds herself in a high voltage situation with Baron and Sham, professional bounty hunters posing as handy men. Her life changes instantly from solo to a trio.
If you like porn, look no further. There’s plenty of porn to be had in Betty Womack’s HOT WIRED.
Aside from the thin veil of story surrounding an excuse for endless sex scenes, this book is riddled with mistakes. Just one example: the first electrician shows up to fix the busted air conditioner. Apparently, Carol, the lead, didn’t notice that her lights and appliances didn’t work, either, because after Baron, the hunky electrician shows up, he explains that her power is out. That’s all well and good, though, because Carol has other things on her mind…mainly getting down and dirty with Baron.
Furthermore, there was no emotional connection to the characters. I didn’t care what happened to Carol, didn’t care that her husband had cheated on her, and even the sex scenes fell flat. That’s not to say some readers won’t enjoy them, but if you’re writing a book labeled as an erotic romance, the “romance” should be acknowledged, not glossed over.
As I said, this story has a lot of sex and, in that way, works as a guilty pleasure. However, if you prefer emotion and characterization, you’re better off reading something else.
