My rating: 3 of 5 stars
THE V-SPOT is a quick read that most romance fans will thoroughly enjoy. It isn’t a story that I loved, or one that I’d probably re-read, but it’s still enjoyable.
I loved Emma and Brody. They were relatable characters; they were flawed, but both of them had redeemable qualities. The only downside to Emma? She was supposed to be twenty-five, but as someone in their late twenties, I couldn’t help but to feel that she acted far older than that. I also loved Sadie – well, what little we got to see of her. But that’s about all that I can honestly say that I loved, because for me, the rest of the story was far too predictable.
Again, as I’ve already said, The V-Spot is enjoyable and fun read, but it isn’t what I had hoped for. I’ve read multiple Cosmo Read Hot Reads over the past couple of months, and I’ve enjoyed nearly all of them. Even though they all essentially followed the same outline, and the drama that played out near the end in each title was relatively the same, they all managed to be unique. This was something that was missing with The V-Spot. Yes, the setting is definitely unique. And it was nice to see Emma’s interactions with her patients, but nothing else really stood out, which is why I can’t rate this one over three stars.
To sum it up: If you’re in need of a quick romance read, then yes, check out The V-Spot. It’s worth a shot.
One final note: I’m normally not one to complain about covers, but I absolutely hate this one. I don’t hate it because it’s a terrible cover. It’s your standard romance over, it’s eye-catching and pretty. But it doesn’t reflect the story. At all. Emma, who is the main character in The V-Spot, is described as a size fourteen and chubby by multiple characters in the story, so I’m not entirely sure why they thought this cover worked for this story.
