LEVELED is the second book in the Blue Bay Crew by Cathryn Fox. Although this is not the first time I’ve read this author, it is my first book of this specific series. Since I was in the mood for something a little more sexier, I remember reading one of Fox’s past books so I decided to jump back into this newer series. I was intrigued by the blue collar heroes and the concept of this series. Sadly, the book didn’t quite meet up to my expectations.
My first issue with this book is that it is written in first person narration. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve read an Erotic Romance written this way so I really didn’t think it was the best way to convey the genre. Normally, I would be able to get over it. Or at least get used to it for the sake of finishing the book. However, I just couldn’t with this one and the reason is actually the second thing about this book that really didn’t sit well with me.
Since this book is first person, we get a lot of the inner thoughts of the hero, Jamie. Sadly, I didn’t like him. At all. I felt that being in his head was just so grating. He sounded so dumb. I struggled with being in his head so much.
I didn’t think the heroine was that much better. This story is about a bad boy and a rich girl. I found that this book didn’t offer much apart from that. So unfortunately, I will not be continuing on with this series.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
