Hot Pink Crop by M.L. Montgomery
Hot Pink Crop by Michele L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hot Pink Crop is the sequel to Hot Pink Condom and gave me the chance to catch up with my favorite roleplaying couple, McKayla and Kurt. This time around the roleplaying is a bit more elaborate and the novella encompasses a couple of days over a week’s time. It also features McKayla in the driver’s seat so to speak as she plays the Domme to Kurt’s sub. While I don’t typically go in for femdom books, I found myself enjoying the story, most likely because it was role-play and not the normal nature of their relationship. It gave me the chance to learn more about both McKayla and Kurt and the scenes were hot!
As much as I enjoyed it, I did find myself a bit baffled by McKayla’s thoughts at one point in the novella. Towards the end of their scene (almost 90% into the book), she looks into his eyes and sees his love for her and freaks out. She starts worrying because she’s realized that she love him back and is concerned that her feelings have crossed a line they drew when they began their relationship five years earlier. What baffled me about her line of thought is that Kurt has already said “I love you” more than once and she spent the first part of the book afraid she was losing him because she couldn’t say it back as she refused to acknowledge that she felt that way. So she went from refusing to acknowledge her feelings, to being afraid she would lose him because she couldn’t say it, to being scared that he’d leave her now that she realized she loved him. Mind you, she still can’t say the words, but can you see why McKayla left me with a bad case of whiplash?
But despite that minor blip in McKayla’s character, I really enjoyed Hot Pink Crop… until I got to the end and Ms. Montgomery left me teetering at the edge of the cliff. It’s not quite a cliffhanger, but I was really hoping for more resolution to their relationship in this installment rather than ending the book with them on even shakier ground than when it started. On the upside, this means I get to read at least one more book in the series, insuring another peek into my favorite roleplaying duo’s steamy scenes.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
