Title: Colossal – How big is too big?
Author: Lexie Renard
Format: eBook Given in Exchange for an Honest Review by the Author
Ashley has had bad luck in the dating world, as she is only aroused by men who are extremely well endowed. Zach is a shy guy who is afraid to scare or hurt women with his massive appendage. Through the help of a sassy drag queen and some random luck, this sweet couple might have a chance together, if they could stop being so timid and get things out in the open.
Will they ever get together and consummate their attraction? And is it even physically possible?
Come on, this is a romance story. There will be hot sex and a happy ending at some point.
Rating this book was really difficult for me.
On one hand, I really enjoyed reading this super short, quick story in between some pretty heavy and dark books. It was the perfect quick and light reset before I dove back into murkier waters.
On the other hand, despite really enjoying the storyline, I was left wanting more. I wish it wasn’t so short. I wanted to learn more about the characters. I wanted to be guided through their relationship and watch it build.
It is clear from the title what this entire book focuses on, and maybe it’s because I’ve never been huge into straight up erotica (I don’t mind the steam, but I like quite a bit of romance thrown in), but I just wanted… more.
At the end of the day, like I said, I was entertained. The meetcute was adorable and I really liked Zach, even though the book was so short, it is hard to fully dive into character development. Ashley was a little immature and self-centered, but she didn’t annoy me and maybe that is because the book was so short.
In the end, if the author decided to flesh this one out a bit more, I’d be the first to grab the book and read it.
Butterfly Rating: 2 Stars
I feel, if given more time and more build-up, there would’ve been more butterflies.
Re-read Worthiness: Not right now
Like I said, if there ever is more added to the story… I’m game!
Bookshelf Placement: No
I’m not the biggest fan of the cover or the name.
