BOOK REVIEW: Tremble by Tobsha Learner

Received this from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. (and honest is what you will get)

TrembleErotica for the modern woman: nine tales of the dangerous and divine

Prepare to stimulate your senses and explore the deepest longings of the human heart. In
Tremble, Tobsha Learner, the author of the international bestseller Quiver,
depicts the pleasures of new and rediscovered love, lust, and obsession in a world where passion and magic are interwoven—and where boundaries are pushed beyond expectation.

In a Welsh village, a young woman’s sensuality is awakened by an outrageous inheritance; a drought-stricken Oklahoma town is offered salvation by a travelling rainmaker; a Sydney record producer struggles to satisfy his wife and his mistress—until one of them takes matters into her own hands

Where do I begin with this atrocity?

This is a compilation of modern erotic tales.  Where was the erotic in this? I didn’t feel anything while reading them other than…What the fuck? A walking penis that you treat as a pet? A virgin nun giving birth to a son that grows at an exceptionally fast rate then sleeps with him (umm—did he not come out of your vagina? Is incest not looked down upon in nun land?)

I couldn’t get passed how extremely weird these stories were. I mean, yes they were written quite well for short stories but none of them held my interest. I mean I didn’t even finish reading a handful of the stories and those that I did it was only to see how the fuck they would end this?

 I kept scrolling through the pages just to see if one story actually wowed me. (hint: none did)

All in all, don’t’ waste your time on this. Sorry. Not sorry.
