Reads like a published novel!
I'm going to start by saying I'm not too big a fan of erotica. It's always a hard genre to get me to fall into. My limit of experience/knowledge/taste doesn't go beyond Nora Roberts and Eloisa James.
Read the story now
But if you like erotica, this one's worth the read.
The first thing to pull me in is the technical writing style, composition, and format of the story. It's written well enough to be perceived as a published novel. (Normally, this is what grabs my attention. Some have a first line, a first hook. Me? Professional writing style.)
So I continued reading past the first sexual encounter we are thrown into, and I am immediately intrigued that it is by the male's point of view for the most part of the story. I'm a HUGE fan of this since reading Jamie Macguire's Walking Disaster, the sequel to Beautiful Disaster. Given that it's a YA novel instead of an erotica, this hyped up the experience of Craving Ali for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed it everything about this story, give or take a sex scene but it's...yaknow. An erotica. That's what an erotica is.
Unlike some of the other cheesier PUBLISHED eroticas I've read that have no form, no character arc, let alone a story or plot line, Craving Ali explores all of that and more, giving the characters arcs and a depth as well as amiable personalities that make them likable, lovable, and relatable. You gotta get this one published, girl. You have someone who'll buy the novel RIGHT...HERE.
