Dreaming with my eyes open…

Trashy, Campy, Fun.

Prisoner of My DesirePrisoner of My Desire by Johanna Lindsey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have a confession to make. I love this book. I’ve read it several times. I feel ashamed and dirty but… I don’t care, I loved this book when I read it. It’s one of my guilty pleasures.

Yes this book is tacky, and trashy, and utterly silly and I love it. It is the kind of escapism that you feel silly for liking but you like it just the same.

It has all the ’80s romance cliches that make people think romance readers are fruitcakes, and I don’t care. It has a female on male rape for gods sake! It’s ridiculous! The hero falls in love with his rapist and even risks everything to save her.

Why I read this book and liked it: It has a handsome knight in shining armor, it’s naughty, and campy, and has a happily ever after ending. How could ask for anything more? Just don’t take it seriously and you could maybe find some redeeming…. naw never mind, it’s trash. Enjoy.
