NJ Cole entertains in her erotic romance, Midnight Caller. I must admit that Midnight Caller wasn’t completely what I expected after reading the book description. Although this is an erotic romance with exhibitionism with a man who likes to watch and Dominance/submission per the description, nowhere in the description does it mention the man watching isn’t human. The description gives no hint that this story is really a science fiction erotic romance, which really threw me for a loop.

Rebecca Summers (aka Butterfly) likes to pleasure herself with the drapes open and the lights off every night. Little does she know that Oliver Durant, a Bocaj alien, is watching her and enjoys every one of her performances. Well, she has no idea until he starts to call her. When Oliver finally decides to stop watching, he invites Rebecca to join him in his playroom. She agrees to join him even though he tells her she will always be blindfolded. The BDSM scenes between Oliver and Rebecca are unique, intense, and blazing hot. Unfortunately, I could never find a way to connect to Rebecca’s character. Also, I never found a way to like Oliver’s character. Worse still, I never felt the connection between Oliver and Rebecca.

Although I didn’t mind the first person point of view switching from Rebecca to Oliver, I found no reason have chapters from other characters’ points of view. To me, this shift of focus disrupted the flow of the story and was a major distraction.

I’m surprised that I didn’t enjoy this story even though it has many elements that I usually like. For some reason, Midnight Caller just fell flat, at least to me. I do believe that some readers will enjoy this science fiction romance and find the couple engaging right up to the cliffhanger ending; unfortunately I was not one of them.

I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
