Not as good as the first book
I did not like this book as much as the first book. I thought that there was a lot of storyline focused on things that could have been skipped. I read this book and then bought the audio version. I had the same opinion either way. There is a lot of sex and a unique twist but I think that the characters were just ok for me. Brice had a weird accent that the other guys did not yet they all live in New York. Taryn was not as strong a character as I would like. I did not hate it but the first book, to me, was better. I am still going to get the third book because overall it still was not a bad listen. I know that is wishy washy but I really cannot decide. I guess I liked it enough to read it twice so that says something.

Damaged Goods is a perfect title.
I LOVED the first book in this series -- it was sensual, tender, and sweet, while still being very hot. The chemistry between the characters was soulful, and it was a brilliant fantasy. I especially liked that although there was some menace, it was handled efficiently and wasn't a major plot point.
This book is the equivalent of slasher porn, if there is such a thing. The murders were savage -- and I regret that I now have those images in my head. I don't watch moves or read books with that kind of violence and I never expected to find it in an erotica novel. I'm actually pretty upset about it.
The sex is punishing, while the relationship between the h/h is all talk, with no real emotion, no chemistry. I actually felt sorry for Taryn and the way she was manipulated and used by Brice and his best friend. No matter how many times an author writes that a character enjoyed it, if the action doesn't support that, than I'm not buying. There was zero tenderness or affection -- just a slavering male high five-ing with his buddies over his acquisition.
I never expected a female writer to objectify a female character like this and frankly, this book read like it was written for a certain type of very maladjusted male -- not for women.
(Christian Fox was good i guess, but his New Yorker accident sounded like a parody and was distracting. I hate to say it, but he looses a point for participation. I can't help it.)
