The writing itself is awful. I can't count the number of times I read a phrase that made me stop and silently whimper to myself. Allow me to share a few, since I can't simply be content to suffer alone. Some of my personal favourites are from what's meant to be an intimate scene between the heroine and her lover. I swear, I haven't altered a thing in these sentences:
"He stroked her flank silently."
"She felt his nod: It sent a shiver through her spine."
"She felt lips touch the top of her spine."
Now that's a sexy scene.
