Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Would you like some story with your sex?

Claimed: An Outlaws Novel (The Outlaws Series) - Elle Kennedy

I had an advantage going in, from friends' reviews, I knew this was going to be a smutty time. My favorite description comes from Jilly and her review where she coins the term "dysmutia" dystopia + smut. It fits this perfectly.


Apparently, the world has experienced some apocalyptic instances, I think from climate and nuclear bombs. Apparently, the U.S. coast line is now Utah. Apparently, government as we know it is gone and it's more like a main governed city full of city dwellers that follow the rules and enforcers that well, you get it, enforce the rules. Outside the city are outlaws who don't want to follow the city rules. Enforcers at first gave the outlaws a chance to conform but now they are just killing them. Our heroine's brother is the leader of the enforcers and our hero wants the bro dead because he apparently killed his wife. 


I use apparently and I think a lot because the dystopia aspect is barely a pencil sketch, the outline is there for me as a reader to form a general world and scene but for every page of actual story there is 50pgs of sex. I may be exaggerating but I'm not sure, these people be banging all up and down the block. They bang themselves, their neighbors, each other, and happy voyeur group style. Apparently, no one gives a fig about an audience. 


I feel like even trying to describe the story is like saying "I read it for the articles!". If you like orgies, threesomes, and multiple hot and heavy scenes then this had some hot ones. I like a little more rhyme and reason to characters but I wouldn't call this straight up porn, maybe, erotic thriller? There is some story there but with a wink, a little something to help tell yourself you're not a complete perv.


I'll probably read the next in the series because I'm dying to find out how the war with the enforcers goes.  Hahahhaha, just kidding. I'm a pervert and I've seen the reviews on how hot the next one is.
