Blog Tour: ARC Review~ Uncomplicated by Dawn Robertson +Giveaway
Three days a week I work your everyday nine-to-five. The paperwork is never-ending. The pay is mediocre, and the office drama is simply intolerable. But the other four days a week, I am my own boss.
My name is Jennifer Sunshine and I am a Vegas Call Girl.
My clients range from frat boys on spring break to multimillionaire business men with stuffy wives and less than ideal equipment.
I don’t have a daddy-complex or some kind of sob story.
I don’t need the money, but it certainly is nice.
The only thing I crave is the exhilarating feeling I get from being in control of something. Anything.
My life is uncomplicated, simple even.
That was until he bulldozed his way into my life, and everything changed.
Overnight he makes me realize how much I truly need him.
Mathis Verlinden is the hot bachelor of Vegas. He's a wealthy business man that loves to sleep around. That is up until he sees the beautiful red-head that's in his club. She changes his life in that instant.
So in turn, he changes hers.
Jennifer Sunshine is a call girl in the city of sin. After a night of clubbing with her best friend, she wakes up in Mathis' bed. Wearing a wedding ring!
I expected there to be drama, romance, and a big climactic moment. Sadly, this novel lacked in many areas.
I've never read anything of Jo-Anna Walker's but Dawn Robertson is a different story. I've been a fan of Dawn's since I began her HERS series and I was so excited to hear she was going to take on a story about a call girl. Though I think the HERS series is absolutely fantastic, this story fell a bit short for me. The beginning felt rushed and started off a bit confusing. There were some moments that felt far-fetched. A couple of the supporting characters were inconsistent and underdeveloped, as well as parts of the story itself.
There are two men introduced right away. I was just as confused by Jennifer's feelings toward her client, Jude, as she was. The way Jenny was describing her feelings for Jude, it seemed like she knew 100% that she was in love with him. So when Mathis came into the picture, I was thrown off kilter. I just didn't understand how she jumped from one man to the next in such a short amount of time and then offer no thoughts on it.
The insta-love hits Jenny & Mathis HARD! I know that's a recurring focus in romance novels, but some authors seem to work it so that it's not as ridiculous. My confusion stemmed from that insta-love. My feelings were a little mixed up from the beginning because of it and that sadly took away from my reading experience.
Despite my confusion, I still wanted to keep reading hoping it would get better. After the first few days between Mathis and Jenny passed, I began to buy their feelings for one another. The relationship seemed to flow a lot easier. However the plot continued to stay very bland and basic. So in other words, this novel was simply okay for me.
One thing these authors did nail were the sex scenes. They were definitely sexy and raw. Make sure no one's looking over your shoulder! Can you really expect anything less than hot from an alpha-male and a call girl?

Hers Series (Erotica Romance):
I'm a new self-published author who just got introduced to the writing world early 2013. My aunt suggested that I write a story because I'm an avid reader but I waved it off and left it alone. Well this year, a story came to me and I went with it. It took me a little bit but I finally got a story idea that worked and now I can't stop or control the characters/stories that keep popping up in my head.
I'm born and raised in Canada and I live with my very wonderful and supportive husband, Michael. We don't have any children (yet) unless you count our cat. My hubby been my rock through this whole new experience for me. I couldn't have done it without him and my friends and family.One of the many things I love about this new chapter in my life is that I'm learning constantly. It's never a dull moment and as long as one person likes my story, I am happy.
