I really wanted to like Spring to Summer, the blurb was beautiful and the stories seemed interesting at first glance. So why didn't I like it? Was it the writing? No, the writing was beautiful, very deep and introverted and emotional. Was it the plots? No. The plots had substance and depth of emotion and passion.
You are asking, so why then? It simply wasn't for me. I expected four erotic novellas - now ladies I read a lot of erotic romances and absolutely love'm - and what I got was not what I expected. This book was more Anaïs Nin style than the stories I'm use to of reading these days ( I have a read my fair share of her erotic novellas, and that is why I can appreciate Baylee's writing ). I expected hot steamy "can't-help-myself" kinda sexy love affairs and I got poets and depth.
So you see it wasn't bad, but it's wasn't for me. The lovers of poems and deeper contemporary literature will love this I'm sure! Me? I'm bit more smut about my erotica. ;) Okay, so the rating below is based on where the book fits with my current reading habits and the style of this blog. Was I reviewing this few years back the rating might be completely different (4.5), but so would the blog too.
