Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Moon’s Easy Money by Aidan Stone.
About the Book: Moon is on a mission that will earn her a tidy sum of credits. It is so simple, four men in one day. What is the worst that could happen? Moon’s story is a steamy romp through several erotic encounters on the same day. However, this story has a noir, TEAR-ABLE ending. Some will cheer, and some will cringe when Moon is finished with her assignment.
My Review: This was written by an author I’ve been wanting to read for some time, and I finally worked my way through my TBR pile to get to him, and it was a fun and interesting read.
I don’t believe in spoilers, so I’ll try not to give any away. I’m a huge sci-fi fan, so I enjoyed the setting being on Mars in the distant future. The story itself seems straight forward and has a few moments scattered throughout that don’t seem to make sense or feel strange in that I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong, but everything fell into place in the closing pages. I’m good at figuring out what’s going to happen, but this had enough twists that I couldn’t and that made it so much more enjoyable.
The thing that stuck out at me the most was the different style of writing. I don’t see too many books willing to break the third wall and speak to the reader. This not only did that, but speaks at us as well. By the end, the insults thrown out make sense and, depending on your point of view, you’ll cringe. In many ways it was refreshing to see a different and unique style, not to mention that it keeps you thinking (at least it did me) after it’s finished. I love when authors attempt something new and it works out! :)
As for the erotic portions, they didn’t have the verbose wordage many books use to describe the sex. Instead, it was kept to the minimum and a “real-time, real-life” style that moved the scenes at a brisk pace, but kept them interesting at the same time.
If you’re up for an interesting, intense, and fun ride, then this is the book for you.
