☆✮ My Review ✮☆
☆ I recieved an ARC via ATOMR Tours to separately read apart from the blog tour on my own. Thank you!! ☆
Holy shiznit, this book was porn central with a little TOO MUCH SEX in basically every chapter!! How can someone be that sexually prime and go for that many rounds and produce that many orgasms in both his self and his partner?! He's like the energizer bunny and the girl is his blow up doll to dominate (because she has ZERO personality) at his whim and dispense! Sheesh.
So the story:
Basically, like how another user pointed out, this is like a Tarzan meets Jane type of theme.
BUT, for this particular story, Tarzan (Zachariah "Zach") is a man run by his libido
and later leaves the jungle with Jane (a young anthropologist named Moira) from an indegenius Amazonian tribe in Brazil to start a new life in the U.S. with an old friend of his parents.
From there, he battles with assimilating and adjusting to the culture, the social norms and Western concepts of sex; AS WELL AS coming to grips with his feelings for Moira and deciding whether he wants to remain in the "modern world" or return "home" to his tribe with or without Moira.
I'm sorry, but this story just couldn't manage to captivate my attention and was quite unrealistic and unbelievable at times.
I don't understand how a guy who grew up in the Amazon for 18 years could acclimate to so many foreign concepts (especially the technological ones) so easily like he did.
I'm no psych major but even if Zach could remember glimpses of his old life, which he did throughout the story, I still would have thought he would have been more confused than what was portrayed.
I get that when he returned back to "civilization," his mind would basically be like that of a child's or like a "sponge," so he'd absorb info a lot quicker than most, but, my problem with that was just HOW FAST he picked things up. Kind of bewildered me a bit.
Not to mention, his relationship with the female protagonist just didn't add up and and seemed like two dogs in heat working themselves into a lustful frenzy every time they're in the same proximity of one another.
So yeah, all in all, this book was a MISS for me. Sorry guys. But it did have primitive steamy qualities to it! *wink wink*
