Review: Yank by Selena Kitt

by Selena Kitt
Released Date: Published by Excessica (first published January 1st 2010)
Series: ----
Pages: ebook
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

Just-graduated David has been brightening up his gray Surrey, England days with the porn collection hidden in his parents' shed, but when he finds that their American foreign exchange student, Dawn, has discovered his magazines, things really begin to heat up. 

David’s parents insist that he look for a job, but Dawn has the week off and is determined to work on her tan. Distracted David finds himself increasingly tempted by their seductive, older foreign exchange student, who makes it very clear what she wants. 

In spite of the Study Abroad program’s policy that no “relations” are allowed between a student and anyone in their host family—not to mention David’s mother’s insistence that they treat each other as “brother and sister,”—Dawn’s teasing ways slowly break down the barrier between them until they both give in to their lust. 

But what are they going to do about the feelings that have developed between them in the meantime?

My Review:

Yank was a rather quick and very short book. The overall concept of this book felt flat for me.With that said, there really wasn't any plot in the story. It was full of steamy scenes that took over the majority if not all of the story. Although this book is under the erotic romance category, I would have thought it actually included a little bit more plot, but I was wrong. From the very beginning, we meet David, who is struggling to find a job and maintain a relationship with his parents. He often finds himself drawn to an older foreign exchange student, who happens to live in his house. Despite knowing Dawn for many years, he has come to love her as a sister, yet as they both grow he starts to develop feelings for her. It all seemed physical at first, but as they spend more time together they both discover that their feelings may not be all physical after all. The real question is whether they want to admit their feelings for each other or not. Like I mentioned before, the story felt flat for me, and although it was fast-paced I liked certain moments in the book. Both characters struggle to find where they belong and to accept their feelings. Hence the majority of the time they are running away from what they real feel and want. The story was well-written, but the only thing that it would have helped the story was the ending. It felt too rushed for my liking, but I would recommend everyone who likes these kind of stories to give this book a try. 

My Rating: 3.5/5
