“Eighteen-year-old Alice is unhappy. Her boyfriend is nice and polite, but he’s also quick and careless in bed, and doesn’t give Alice the attention and variety she craves. But he’s not entirely to blame, because Alice herself doesn’t understand her own needs. She’s heard about what sex is supposed to be like, but has never felt anything remotely close to what she’s read about in runaway bestselling books.”
I’m keeping this short as I’m a bit lost for words when talking about this book.
I just feel the whole idea is wrong – this is basically a porn version of Alice in Wonderland, and to me the two genres of erotica and fairytales do not mix, and this one doesn’t mix well at all. I found it cringey, poorly written and very OTT.
I’ve consequently deleted ’50 Shades of Red Riding Hood’ from my Kindle. Not even going to bother.
Next book: I Was A Bad Kid: True Tales of A Deceptive Child by Ryan Zimmerman
