Autumn Young, Taking My Daughter’s Virginity (No press listed, no date listed)

should be called “throw in as many triggering behaviors as possible.”

Had I planned on giving this monstrosity any points, they would have evaporated because of the lack of information (no press listed, no publication date listed).

I find it offensive enough when “authors” of this sort of ridiculous wannabe-porn don’t label possibly- (in this case, probably-) triggering material, but if you’re going to write it, at least own it. This is rape disguised as rape-fantasy by the tacking on of a scene of egregious violence, with an added attempt at “transgressiveness” by sticking the characters into a stepfather-stepdaughter relationship (without, as is almost always the case with this crap, giving us nearly enough backstory to give us any real sense of a familial relationship. Selena Kitt, phone home). So it’s not only ridiculous, stupid, and awfully-written, but it’s also disingenuous. I’ve probably read something worse this year, but I can’t think of anything offhand that would qualify. (zero)

  1. I would think that the author who penned a book titled ‘Taking My Daughter’s Virginity’ has some serious issues, one of which would be giving too much of the plot away in the title…at least ‘Lolita’ left something to the imagination.

  2. Outlining the plot in a kindle porn title has become almost a convention these days. I think a lot of this stuff was stolen from usenet and repackaged by marketing majors looking to make a quick buck (this would also explain why the price briefly drops to zeroonce a week for a few hours; it gets picked up by the feeds, then they set the proce at three bucks again and make some extra cash with the bait-and-switch.)
