All I Wanted Was to Stop Reading: Review

dear readers,

(I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review).

Written by Elizabeth Anthony
genre: erotica, historical erotica


At age thirteen Sophie loses her father to the Great War and her mother to an illness.  Like her mother before her she is soon a maid at the Great Hall - the country house of a Duke.  There she discovers her mother was a bit too friendly with men and her father may not be her biological dad.  Wanting a better life she declines her childhood friend's proposal and instead is being lead to a world of sex and secrets by the late Duke's widow.

This is an erotic novel set during and post WWI.  The novel is trying to be Downton Abbey but instead of scandalous it falls a bit flat due to the very simplistic writing.  If you are looking for an erotic novel and writing does not matter you may be able to finish this novel.
