[Dagger The DUST Ops #1] Pdf Ö Steven dos Santos

Campfire eWas intrigued by the notion of a high school age boy who is part of a secret supernatural James Bond type government organization My curiosity was also piued by the fact that the main character was gay as there is a shortage of good storiesroles for gay male characters Unfortunately this book did not work for me for a couple of reasons It s nothing to do with the book itself totally a it s not you it s me moment ifver there was one I personally am not interested in reading what I ll call gay fiction or to be politically correct LGBT fiction and before you can say I m being prejudiced for the record I bat for this team I am not interested in reading a gay themed story where sexual orientation and sex in general is present in almost very page What I #do like stories about vents situations tc where #like Stories about vents situations Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life etc where happen to be gay and where that is not the focal point of the story Where you could interchangeably putither a gay or straight character and with the Crazy Love exception of the love interestverything pretty much goes the same Because gay straight or anything in between what I don t really go for is a story which hints at sex in some form or another on practically Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society every single page That s boring to me and a little cheap Sorry that s just my opinion So this story starts out right away in a bedroom In a bedroom scene and though the characters aren t having sex the description of perfect toned bodies ad nauseam was just thatnough to make me nauseousBut I gave it the benefit of the doubt and stuck it out about 20% through the story Until which I ascertained that not only the teenagers were acting like horny teenagers the few adults were also acting like horny Not to mention those attractive muscular guys around very corner whom the protagonist is lusting after while alternately his own praises for remaining sort of a virgin whatever that means I didn t stick around to find outThis will sound funny I know But when reading a book too much sex not just the act but horny characters in general is a huge turn off for me If it furthers the storyline I have no problem with it But when very page drips with sex I m out It s too muchWhat s interesting is that I read a lot of YA fiction and now I wonder if in general most other characters in other YA novels are given a bit of adult common sense to appease reader older than 17 sometimes not a LOT of sense but usually some I can t fault that Dagger and his friends are xactly like a gay guy and his friends in high school I should know right But I really dislike stereotypes I mean come on Fighting with a female friend to compete for the attentions of the new guy in school Bleh Some guys probably mpathize highly *with the characters in this book Unfortunately I m not one of *the characters in this book Unfortunately I m not one of people Take too much sex add vapidperpetually horny characters and then put a secret agent lair in the basement of a school and I pretty much lost interest Sorry If the author happens to read this hopefully not please don t take it personally and I am planning on giving this book a try again at some point in the future I am confident it is rated highly for a reason I just can t deal.
