It's this time of the year again when I had to read some girly porn.
Sherry Thomas is one of my favourite girly porn writers. She is actually quite clever, and she spends a little more time building her characters than your average romance writer.
"Not Quite a Husband" is all about forgiving and trusting, because even dashing romance heroes make mistakes. It's also about expecting nothing short of perfection from your other half and how it will make you unhappy eventually (an idea that avid romance readers might have a hard time accepting).
Other than that, it's just like any other porn. It has some sort of improbable backstory (the girl versions of plumbers coming to fix the pipes and ending up screwing the lady of the house or teachers having to discipline their students), and tons of ideal sex scenes.
'Not Quite A Husband' was special because of abudance of sleep-fucking scenes. I swear, this only happens in porn movies and romance books. One night, our heroine wakes up climaxing with her ankles up on the hero's shoulders. How? How could you sleep through that?? Some other time our heroine gives the hero a blow job while he is sleeping. He only wakes up to catch her wiping her lips when it is all over. That's just bollocks. They always wake up! Always!
