I had not read many books with much sex in them up until that book and I feel now I was overly critical of it. I just re-read my review and I feel I was criticizing the genre more than the book. I now see that is like complaining that Woody Woodpecker is too cartoony or reading a drama and complaining about it not being funny! This is a story about a succubus and an Angel ; complaining about the sexual situat Rating 4.
This is a story about a succubus and an Angel ; complaining about the sexual situations being unrealistic is just as foolish. This is a fantasy book about an Angel and a succubus being bound to a mortal; I should judge the story for how well the story was told, how interesting it is, the characters and how it made me feel. With that it mind, I felt this was a very good book.
I listened to the audiobook and the narrator elicited a lot of emotion from me. Despite there being a lot of sex in these stories, I also felt there was a lot of heart involved. There was love, respect, desire, lust but there wasn't pettiness of jealousy. I liked the twist on the main character remembering past lives and how that both helped him by allowing him to know past skills like sword fighting and war and hurt him sometimes those memories were overwhelming and came about at inopportune times.
I like how Alex always tries to do the right thing, he fights for his friends and his loves and won't let anyone or anything get between him and the people he cares about. His friends are exactly the same way. They each have different personalities and they riff off each other pretty well, but no matter what, they have each others back.
We find out that the FBI has a department that tracks supernatural beings and they are now trying to figure out what happened up in Seattle.
Other vampires and supernatural creatures are also trying to figure out what happened. Our group ends up being hunted by not only the supernatural community but the FBI as well.
I thought the narrator did an awesome job with all the different accepts, especially the Irish accent from one of Alex's past lives. We find out more about why all of Alex's previous lives ended with violence at a young age.
We also find out about Lorali's past before she became a succubus. While I did really enjoy this book, it was hard to follow sometimes, especially as it switched to describing a scene in Alex's past. There did not seem to be a lead up to the flashbacks so it took me a while to figure out if it was a flashback or if the author was just describing a new character in the present.
This book seemed to focus on the best aspects of everything. The sex was always described as amazing, the characters were righteous and always tried to do the right thing. The love was unquestionable. Just make sure you don't read or listen to this book at work - that could be awkward.
Feb 26, Sterling rated it it was amazing Shelves: I got this book because of a recommendation by a friend and I have to say I am surprised just how good it is. For anyone who is interested in this book I would say do not hesitate unless you are put off by sexual content.
There is a lot more sexual content than I think their needed to be, but that being said the story alone is fantastic. This is book two in the series and I didn't read book one. I had no problem figuring out what was going on. It is definitely a standalone novel. I will be getti I got this book because of a recommendation by a friend and I have to say I am surprised just how good it is. I will be getting book one so I can enjoy the full story, and because I enjoyed this book so much I wish I had read book one first, only because now I know a lot about what transpired in the first book.
I would highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal, fantasy. Like I said don't read this book if you are put off by sexual content that doesn't add to the narrative of the story.
If that doesn't bother you don't hesitate to start this book right now. Great writing and storyline. I hope there will be a book three.
I will download it. Aug 29, Anatole rated it did not like it Shelves: Yet another book for weak-willed cucks. As a person who likes to immerse himself in the skin the protagonist s , reading books like these where the MC is a spineless cuckholded looser drives me absolutely fucking insane that doesn't even begin to describe it.

Which might be a good thing, and probably necessary to keep the series going but ends up being less entertaining than all the hijinks of the first book. As good as the first book but it loses a star compared to the previous book because of the way it allows Amber, Rachel and Lorelai to betray the ones they love without it really having any consequences. While all 3 had "good intentions" as it were and ultimately did the "right" thing, it still got wrapped up abit too nicely.

The outcome was always gonna end up as it did in the series but at least the girls should have worked for it.
Somehow I doubt that if the genders were reversed the guys would have gotten off as easy as the girls did in this series. This was a hard book for me to like because of my sensitivity to abuses of power. In essence, the FBI investigates our heroes and makes arrests without warrants and, possibly, probable cause since all the evidence the FBI has indicates self-defense clearly.
There was o This was a hard book for me to like because of my sensitivity to abuses of power. There was only part of the story that really bugged me- one of the FBI agents gains access to the good guys by essentially seducing one of them although I believe she avoided actual sex with him if I remember right.
This whole story line just feels like the author wanted a happy ending rather than following his characters through to their logical conclusions. In a word, it felt contrived, as did the happy ending all the way around.
The head FBI guy is determined to have had his mind tampered with and someone else takes over and now everyone is friends.
Personally, I would have told them to fuck off- had they done their jobs well and according to the rules none of the shit would have happened. The happy ending gets worse since in the post-resolution wrap up we are treated to a scene where the FBI agent just shows up at the door of the guy she seduced. He apparently has already forgotten how he begged her to keep dating him in the middle of the crisis that resolved the conflict of the story.
So, bottom line: May 20, Gareth Otton rated it liked it Shelves: Whether because the first one was a big surprise in how good it was and therefore raised my expectations or whether it was simply a case of this book being a struggle to write; I found that I did not enjoy this book anywhere near as much as its predecessor.

However, rather than returning for another fun, action packed and raunchy sequel, they seemed to have returned for a book that spends far too much time with its characters simply talking about the same problems over and over. However, that being said there is still a lot to like about this book.
The characters do continue to grow, some of the relationships develop nicely and the world is definitely fleshed out to a level worthy of most mainstream urban fantasy novels.
The issue is that though there was growth and potential there, you just know as a reader that it could have been so much better, it just felt a little tired. The action wasn't as exciting, nor was there nearly enough of it. The sexy bits took a back seat to even more story expansion and talking. One of the most troubling things for me was how the author treated the two main love interests in this book. Lorelei has been reduced from the playfully sexy succubus to the role of a patient older woman dealing with her younger lover's inexperience.
Rachel on the other hand has gone from the humorous and morally divided angel to a workaholic wife who spends far more time at work than in the relationship and has her priorities skewed.
Basically this is a much reduced sequel to the considerably more enjoyable Good Intentions. However, that is not to say I wouldn't read a sequel if one were released.
It may not have lived up to its predecessor but it was still an interesting read and one that is worthy of a bit of time. Overall a bit of a disappointment, but not necessarily a bad read. Oct 31, Gilbert Stack rated it really liked it. The sequel to Good Intentions is another exciting dive into the Seattle supernatural community.
This time the FBI gets involved which causes unanticipated difficulties as our heroes seek to protect themselves from the hostile attention of vengeance-seeking vampires and werewolves determined to force Alex into their pack. Aug 23, Steven Allen rated it liked it. I liked the second book of the Good Intentions series, but I had to wait until I was in the mood.
I have never been one for casual sex; which there is a bit of in Natural Consequences. I get that others are ok with casual or recreational sex and open relationships - I am not and I rarely enjoy reading stories where the MCs regularly have casual sex. Kay writes good action scenes and the ending of the book is a fast paced hurl to the climax.
Good characters, but somethings left me wondering like w I liked the second book of the Good Intentions series, but I had to wait until I was in the mood. Good characters, but somethings left me wondering like why would a year old FBI agent have her tubes tied?
I was sorry to see Taylor leave Alex's bed. I hope that in the next book, Taylor returns as she was one of my favorite characters. Starting the next book now. I also like the lesbian witches, but wish they would keep their bedroom antics just to Alex, his angel and succubus. Nov 19, Seonaidh rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this if anything a little better than the first one.
There were fewer 'random' sexual encounters, though I think there was a bit more nookie in it overall. Many of the minor characters from the first book got some more development, and we got some more backstory on the major ones, a lot of loose ends and 'hows and whys' from the first book get tied up. I wasn't expecting an awful lot from this series, so i was really pleasantly surprised by both the overall quality of the writing for contr I liked this if anything a little better than the first one.

Hamilton's frankly piss poor understanding of the meaning of some of the words she uses makes me outright angry, and that's the least of what gets past her editing process and the story telling and world building is solid.
So About That Next Good Intentions Book
Jun 08, Jon Abbott rated it really liked it Shelves: Even better than the first book in the series, although this one too suffers from too many, too long, sex scenes, but fewer than book one.
If you are willing to admit to skipping them, a plot with a demon, a guardian angel and a moral mortal who doesn't hesitate to act is a great start. This second book explores the ramifications of beings from heaven and hell loving together while having each other's back. Free on KU when I read it and well worth the price.
Jun 19, Aaron Nagy rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 26, Daniel Bice rated it really liked it Shelves: Dec 29, Sam Martin rated it really liked it. Still a lot of sex, but you can fast forward it like I did!
Love Rachel scenes! I rated it 3. A little to much sex has cause it to lose a half a point there. I felt it slow down some of story lines. I love how past life serve a purpose. Without it Alex couldn't get out a bad situations! FBI made me mad but again had a purpose. My b Still a lot of sex, but you can fast forward it like I did! The demon wants this because the more sex that Alex has, the stronger she gets.
The author tries to tone down the sex somewhat. Alex is apparently an all around good guy. He is the type of guy who has been permanently been placed in the "friend-zone". The kind of guy that all women love, but none of them really want to be with him. Except, now he is super sexy, but the author does not want to change the character so he remains that "great guy". This is the weird part for me.
If a woman can find a great guy and wants to have sex with him all the time, what else could they want. In this case though, every one of the women he sleeps with only wants to "have fun" and they don't want anything serious.
Despite this story being about angels, demons, and magic, I found that to be the most unbelievable part of the story. The author also tried to make the reader feel more comfortable by saying that no one Alex was with could get pregnant or end up with any disease. He did not sleep with anyone who was married or underage, and no one who was in love with someone else unless all parties agreed and where okay with the situation.
Again, the most unbelievable portion of the story. That being said, I thought it was fun. I think most people would be okay with this story, even the ones who are religious, except that remember I said both and demon and an Angel were bound to Alex.
I think anyone with a strong religious background might really dislike they way the Angel was written. This Angel had a worse mouth on her than any other character in the entire story. This story also gives an unorthodox religious view of sex meaning that heaven believes people should be able to have sex with anyone they want unless it involves breaking some kind of vow. Overall this was fun, brainless entertainment. Definitely not for everyone, but an enjoyable listen audiobook View all 3 comments.
This book was clearly written by a man. More like a man-boy. Really it was like peeking into an unpopular adolescent boys dream diary.
I'm surprised at how bad this book was and why there are so many 5 star reviews for it. It's such a departure from his Poor Man's Fight series, which may not be the best written books, but are definitely fun and have at the very least a fluid plot line.
I won't rehash "the plot" here, but basically Alex rescues an angel and a succubus from becoming sex slaves to This book was clearly written by a man.
I won't rehash "the plot" here, but basically Alex rescues an angel and a succubus from becoming sex slaves to some old white guys and then he ends up the Master to the succubus and she proceeds to fuck him until his dick is ready to fall off.
All of a sudden every girl wants him and Lorelei the succubus not only encourages other relationships, but he and his other sex partners are free from the worries of disease, pregnancy, and apparently jealousy.
Every girl he meets and has sex with conveniently does not want to be in nor is looking for a relationship with him. They just want to basically use him as a sex-slave. That's fair I guess.
The plot line is practcally non-existent, there is no suspense, no real sense of danger or the fear of loss. It's not very funny as eluded to in other reviews and I truly disliked Rachel, a very foul-mouthed angel. The sex scenes were 'shrugs'. There also wasn't too much distinction between the characters. Lorelei is a succubus that has been around thousands of years fucking bad men to death but she had never attempted to do anything good or to help people or prevent pain.
She meets Alex and then all of a sudden she's basically just a hooker with a heart of gold. Makes no sense. Then there is Rachel.
Again the same. Been around forever. Is supposed to be a guardian angel but it's never established that she's done much good. She basically acts like a haughty spoiled brat that has truly an unnecessarily foul mouth. There is a subplot about Alex's past lives and that he's some eternal hero that can never find happiness, but that goes nowhere.
There are a bunch of filler characters that get caught up in a bunch of nonsense. Not worth mentioning. Also, this book has the gall of being around 22 hours long! I was forced to forward through an endless amount of poorly written dialogue. If your into UF books about teenage boys wet-dreams have at it, otherwise don't waste your time. Feb 13, Christy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Definitely don't read this if you don't have a sense of humor that encompasses general irreverence as a rule.
This was a really fun read. I spent the weekend with a book I had a blast listening to. I'm on the 2nd book now, and I'm enjoying it as well, but the first was more all-out fun. It does a good job of showing why nice guys are worth a lot, and 4. It does a good job of showing why nice guys are worth a lot, and how they could--believably imo --wow the panties off all the girls.
By being nice. And considerate. And why that matters. Not just the lip service. Is it also a geeky male fantasy scratch the geeky part? Absolutely and unashamedly. So are grimdark books, but I don't feel like vomiting quite so often after reading the sex scenes.
See panty comment above. Oh, and the erotica May 23, Kirkus rated it it was amazing. I don't like the urban fantasy erotic works where a girl has the problem if she should choose the sexy vampire or the smexy werewolf. Then they spends pages pondering what choice to make. This book doesn't do this. I think a lot of girls will find this work enjoyable despite being more catering to men. The theme of the book is love and I think a lot of people will like Elliotts version of it.
Apr 18, Coyora Dokusho rated it really liked it. I stayed up till 5 in the morning and then woke up two hours later to stumble off to work Yeah, a review's not gonna happen now Then slept for 13 hours. It was glorious. School started yesterday! I have so much homework to do I'm not gonna avoid it this semester!
I did that last semester and it Sucked! Somehow, even though there was a ton of sex in this book, it didn't feel gratuitous. I liked the characters but there was just something It was funny though. Nov 13, Jaswin Joy rated it it was amazing Shelves: To anybody who wants a fun, gripping, funny, and loads more Don't be skeptical.
Just read on, let the book get to you and in the end you will feel really good that you actually spend the time to give it a try. Don't worry it isn't some smut book you will get tired off.
Though it has smut in it, it just furthers the story. The author actually manages transitions between different POV's in a smooth manner. Good book. Jan 05, Clinton rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the first book of this type I have read, but it was good.
Really is a guilty pleasure as others have said. I cant believe i actually read this lol.
May 19, Gareth Otton rated it it was amazing Shelves: Let's not beat around the bush, there is a lot of sex in this book and that is not going to be to everyone's tastes. However, if you are willing to look past that or even allow yourself to enjoy it as the guilty pleasure that it is, you will find this to be a surprisingly good read.
Good intentions went above and beyond what I expected from this book. After reading a few reviews I was thinking that this would be a light hearted and fun book that would be easy reading and little more. Whilst it w Let's not beat around the bush, there is a lot of sex in this book and that is not going to be to everyone's tastes.
Whilst it was all this, light hearted, fun and easy reading, it also had a very in depth story that had me hooked almost from the beginning.
The strength is clearly the characters that were created in the novel. Each one is given a strong story arc and more importantly, the chance to grow. It helped me get attached to each of them and when the final climactic trouble starts I found myself genuinely routing for these characters. Behind the characters it is hard to tell what else rose above the rest to make this a good read. The fantasy was well written and didn't take back seat to the erotic encounters, neither did the erotic encounters take a back seat to the exciting action.
Basically this is a book of surprising balance that keeps the reader interested. Good Intentions is well written, funny when it needs to be, scary when that is called for and the action of all varieties is well written and engaging. If I had to pick a fault with the book it would only be that somewhere around the half way mark there is an explosion of POV scenes from different characters that can make it hard to get settled for a while.
This isn't nearly enough of a problem to stop the reader from enjoying the book, just something that irked me for a short while. Overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable and surprising book that has left me eager to read the sequel. I recommend it to people who are looking for a light hearted, guilty pleasure set in the fantasy genre.
May 01, Robin rated it liked it. So, have YOU ever wanted to fuck your guardian angel? There were some very good things about this book, and some things that made me roll my eyes. The characters in this book are a riot. My favorite is probably Rachel, the long suffering guardian angel.
I loved every single one of her scenes, and I'm imagining her and Castiel from Supernatural going on an angel So, have YOU ever wanted to fuck your guardian angel? I loved every single one of her scenes, and I'm imagining her and Castiel from Supernatural going on an angel road trip across the US. But, that's my own little fan fic fantasy. I also really enjoyed Alex's friends, and kinda wish they each had their own books.
Oh, and if you're not a fan of sex scenes, don't even think of picking up this book. This is a VERY sexy book. Hotter than your average romance, and hotter even than some erotic romances. Well written sex scenes, too, which makes them all worth reading. So, what didn't I like about it? Sadly, the two main characters. I liked Lorelei most of the time, but there were times when she really worked my nerves.
Or, actually, when I felt like I was being pushed to like her whether I wanted to or not. I'm not for that. Plus, as a big fan of Rachel, I thought she was pushed to the side way too much in favor of Lorelei.
And Alex. It just seemed like he was a little too heroic. Every girl wants to do him, every guy wants to BE him. That's not the kind of main character that interests me. Plus, he just seemed really young. Yes, he was 19, and maybe THAT is my problem with him. Will I read book 2? Maybe someday. I'm curious enough about the secondary characters to see what happens next.
Should YOU read it? Well, that depends. Have you ever wanted to fuck your guardian angel? Sep 30, Teri rated it did not like it.
I read some of the reviews to this book after I had started reading it because I had thought it was so bad. But everything I read was overwhelmingly positive, so I carried on. My big problem with this book is that the characters are so flat. They are each written with some sort of circumstantial difference or a quirk to make them seem interesting, but then they all respond exactly the same way to everything. Almost word for word even. The whole book seems like a high schoolers wet dream highly i I read some of the reviews to this book after I had started reading it because I had thought it was so bad.
The whole book seems like a high schoolers wet dream highly influenced by the stranger in a strange land mindset. He can run around and fall into whoever he wants and every single one of them is like "that's ok, I like that you have sex with everyone.
In fact, let's just all do it together. It makes the book unbelievable and the characters annoying. I think the kicker was the 'No don't feel bad about sleeping around while simultaneously demanding me to remain faithful to you. Really, I'm the selfish one for letting you sleep around" Jul 19, Wolfgarr rated it really liked it. Not my usual reading material, That said the characters are really interesting and funny.
The amount of sex that takes place is a little..
The Summer of Good Intentions
Just a little over the top in my opinion. Then again it is a story with a succubus etc. I was surprised at how well the story was written. Normally sex in literature is ether poorly described or written like someone did it with a sledge hammer. Not so in this case. Make no mistake about this book It has a great story and good characte lit-Porn with a story.. If that isn't your thing..
You have been warned. If it is.. Well you definitely wan't to check this book out. Sep 17, Malum rated it really liked it Shelves: Recipe for "Good Intentions": Garnish with a tiny sprig of "Harry Potter" wands. Serve hot and steamy. It could also stand to be ran by an editor one more time. But, most importantly, it is a hell of a lot of fun. May 20, Caleb rated it really liked it Shelves: A enjoyable read. It was more erotica than anything else.
Much longer than site listed it as about instead of the they listed. The characters were charming and memorable. It made you feel like you were right there in the middle of the action. A rare gift for a new writer. Most of all, though, it had the best set up for a deus ex machina I've ever seen in a book. Now before you let the word twilight turn you off, allow me to explain the nuances and how they are twisted into something awesome!
First, let us talk about Alex. He is the Bella of the story. Does that mean he is an unlikeable blank slate? I think blank slate is a strong statement, yet he is a character with whom many male readers can relate. He is awkward, he lacks confidence, and when things start to go well for him he has trouble believing his good fortunes. That is understandable, as I will show you in a bit here. He is a likeable enough character.
He treats his friends and lovers with respect and dignity. He has morals. He gets along well with his mother. Most importantly, when the shit goes down, he steps up rather than expecting somebody else to handle things for him.
In our. Lorelei is the Edward of the group. She speaks with a resounding eloquence, and she has an underlying air of danger to her. Unlike Edward though, Lorelei does not want to wait until marriage to have sex with Alex. She encourages Alex to have sex with her, and any woman he wants.Only time I felt worse was with ps powers builder series.
I also did not like it when Shannon was going into the concert on Halloween and brought it upon herself to scold the people behind her for making comment about people dressing too sexy on Halloween. Rather than say anymore spoilers! You don't feel like its really a struggle Jul 26, Mukkaar rated it liked it. But on the Cape, there was no need for such charts.
