When Is Enough Enough?

I never thought I would actually find myself saying this, but I just read a vampire book with too much sex. Oi vei. Yes, this is me, not some alien taking over my body. Or a sexy vamp using mind control on my. Lmfao.

While I truly enjoy having sex in any and practically every vampire book that I read, I do enjoy some action mixed in with it too. I NEED BOTH!!!!!

I want a mixture with what I read. The saying will always remain tried and true to me, "Enough is enough, and too much stinks."

When I read, I want my books to contain these basic groups, blood, sex and gore, and yes it must be paranormal. Maybe even Sci-fi. But it CANNOT be your basic run of the mill regular humans. I need drama, suspense, romance, a heroine/hero who are NOT dingbats.

But the book I most recently read had mainly JUST sex, with a couple of fight scenes thrown in. I didn't even really get a chance to fall in love with the characters. Maybe lust after them, but that's all. Great sex scenes as they were, even a vampire needs to come up for "air".

The book in which I speak is One Bite with a Stranger by Christine Warren. I did enjoy her writing for the most part, but COME ON. When u have me of all ppl saying there was too much sex, trust me, that's saying something.

I am now weary of reading the rest of the series. And I hate to read only one book in a series. Plus, on the cover it states that it is the first in the series. Well it isn't!!!!! I hate that too. Isn't that some sort of false advertising? Lol.

Anyway, just needed to vent a lil.
