Always Another Book in the TBR

Love to read, but I love to also just buy. Sometimes I think my hobby is buying more than reading.

The Pink Pearl

The Pink Pearl - Suzette Marquis Yeah. So I am not sure what this was.

I read it because I loved the book by this author under a different name, [bc:Geoducks Are for Lovers|17838847|Geoducks Are for Lovers|Daisy Prescott|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1367495870s/17838847.jpg|24962477].

I saw that this was really short, but I kind of thought -- well, I don't know what I thought.

It is a short, very short little tale, maybe erotic, but not really. There were a lot of double entendres, lots of smirking, some fierce sword play (okay, so I am doing the entendres, too).

There is some kind of nonexplanation explanation at the end as to what this is. But I still don't get it.

The writing is competent, the story is thin and farfetched. A good time was had by some. This could be a lead in to a whole book, or a piece of writing that was culled as the only decent part of a half-written pirate historical that was hiding under her bed.

There are typos (really shouldn't be typos in such a short book) and editing issues. Whatever.

I think we got to enjoy an inside joke or some sort, without being told there was a joke. It was free so I am not crying foul. Just seems kind of silly.
