Carnal Desire
by K.T. Fisher and Ava Manello
Book 2 of the Severed MC
3 stars

The reason I was looking forward to CARNAL DESIRE was because of the cliffhanger by the end of the first book. It ended in such a dramatic and hopeless fashion, I couldn't help but care about what will happen to the characters, especially Eve and little Elizabeth. Once this burning question was answered though, things started to get a bit banal for me.

The grittiness of that was present in the first book was still very much present in this one, though. I like that that element remained because that was to be expected in an MC series. That doesn't mean it didn't drive me angry…! As expected, there are some tragic things that happen in this story :( and I was so sad for one innocent character in particular. SPOILER: [I was really hoping she'd be given a second chance, but nope, the authors offed her in the end. It really saddened me!

There were three things that didn't really work out well for me. First, the book is narrated in multiple POVs. There's nothing wrong with this strategy, except that the execution kind of diluted the momentum for me. I didn't "get into" the story as quickly as I did in the first one. Second, Ice meets a very special lady early in the story. I was hoping he'd get his own book, but his story is also included here. The meeting, conflict, angst and resolution of his romance with Elle were all included in the story too. This might be another reason why the book, which headlines Eve and Gabe, felt rather diluted. I thought Ice and Elle's story could have worked much better as a separate novella. My third reason is the direct result of the first two: the momentum and excitement factor turned down several notches. It was only the beginning and the end that got my blood pumping. Between that, I found myself almost skimming and quickly reading the pages, hoping to get to the exciting portions sooner.

All in all, I found CARNAL DESIRE to be a less exciting read than its prequel. My impression seems to be the in the minority though since the book rates very high on Goodreads. I still say give this a try though, especially if you'll read the first book. Believe me, you'll be burning to find out what happens after that cliffhanger! :)

Ava Manello: Passionate reader, blogger, publisher, and author. I love nothing more tag helping other Indie authors publish their books be that reviewing, beta reading, formatting or proofreading,
I love erotic suspense that's well written and engages the reader, and I love promoting the heck out of it over on my book blog.
I've just started a new chapter in my life, I'm a mother, but most of all I'm me and I'm following my dreams!
