Review: I like it hard by Francis James Franklin

 Series: Standalone

Genre: LGBT (aromantic bisexual character, gay character, lesbian character, poly relationship)

Rating: 2.5/5 stars

Cover: Fitting

Goodreads: add

Trigger warnings: mention of suicidal thoughts

Description: After her brother Dan loses in the final of the XXX-rated Reality TV show I Like It Hard, Helen Arnold finds new purpose in life: enter the show herself—and win.

But no amount of training, or advice from Dan and his lovers, can fully prepare her for naked interviews, two weeks in a porn-studio villa, and weeks of nerve-wracking live sex show—all while dealing with the capricious nature of the judges, who wield absolute power over the show and its contestants.

Being both bisexual and aromantic, Helen is used to dealing with people who don’t like or approve of her—and she’s never been the type to back down when life gets hard.

Review: This novella is about an aromantic bisexual woman. YAY by the way. But why list it under romance? She’s aro… and apart from that there isn’t any romance in this book. Very confusing indeed.

Anyway, I expected something more… explicit. Instead it only hints at most sexual scenes, which would be okay. Only conflicts and things happening are only mostly hinted at, too. It would have worked better as a novel for sure.

I still liked Helen very much and I would have loved to read more about her. Her brother and his poly relationship as well.

Disclaimer: I was given it for free through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.

    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
