Doll Chrissy Reviews Colters’ Woman
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Purchase: | Book Depository
Holly Bardwell is running from her past mistakes. Straight into the arms of the Colter brothers.
Adam, Ethan and Ryan aren’t looking for women. They’re looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They’re losing hope they’ll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin.
Adam knows she’s the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact—and protecting her from the danger of her past.
This book has been re-edited and revised. Includes an expanded ending and a new, never-before published short story sequel.
Warning: This title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a quatre, violence.
The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” couldn’t be truer than in the case of Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks. Looking at the cover, one would think that it was a sweet romance set in the Rockies. True, it takes place in the Rockies and there are many elements of romance in this book. But it is anything but sweet. This book is not for the faint of heart and I venture to say that some of our naughtier readers might also not be able to handle this book.
With that being said, I must admit, I loved every second of Colters’ Woman! It was some of the most deliciously naughty erotica that I have ever read. Who wouldn’t love a book about a woman who is worshipped and taken care of (in every sense of the phrase) by three rich handsome cowboy brothers? While I do agree with other reviews that I read that Holly, our heroine, does come off a bit as a TSTL (too stupid to live) young lady, I was able to overlook that and loved her character. The brothers are magnificent and cover every part of the hero spectrum: Adam- the green-eyed alpha male, Ethan- the brown-eyed gentle intelligent type, and Ryan- the blue-eyed tortured soul. There’s an archetype for everyone!
Some of the aspects of the story are a little farfetched (three brothers sharing one woman with no hints of jealousy, a virgin experiencing her first time with three men that she just met) but I look at it this way: it’s fiction. Fiction allows us to suspend reality and to enjoy the art of storytelling and creativity.
I am officially hooked on the Colters’ Legacy series. Having checked out some of the other books from the library, I discovered that they now include warnings on the back of the book (apparently some readers must’ve been upset by being misled by the innocent cover of the first book in the series.) So for the sake of avoiding a backlash that you were not warned about the elements that this book contains, here goes:
This book contains:
• Explicit sex
• Graphic language
• Ménage a quatre (that’s right I said 4)
• Oral sex
• Anal sex
• Multiple partners
• Outdoor sex
• And a whole lot of bath taking
