I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

It was a good read, but some things did irk me.

Caged: Love and Treachery on the High Seas (Baal's Heart, #1) - Bey Deckard

Mainly that my favourite character, Tom, the only interesting one imho, was absent for a great part and somehow sidelined for the "main love story".


I didn't like the captain much. I just didn't like him, didn't find him sexy or alluring. He was just a polite sociopath, but not exactly thrilling. And his sappy "falling in love" wasw not exactly endearing him to me. He was either bad, really really "I cut her heart out because she looked strange at you" bad or sappy. Not a great combination.


Jon was a speshul snowflake, the perfect receptive bottom and natural deep throater (and OF COURSE A VIRGIN - Mary Sues are mostly pure and wonderful) who was so very very special in many ways that stupid little me didn't understand why exactly he was so great and lovable. He was described as beautiful, maybe it was as simple as that.


I liked the story, I liked the whole pirate thing and it was written well enough.


I didn't care much for the frequent "the youth", "the older man", "the younger man" and so on, but that's peanuts.


I will definitely read the next in the series, since my darling Tom is back in the story and has tattoos now :-)
