I'm a fan of Staci Hart's novels, so when she released her first erotica serial this week, I was ready to dive in! I love Staci's characters, they are always raw and gritty. The characters in Hardcore are no exception.
Hardcore opens with us following Cory, the antihero, who is a thief with a dark past. She is fleeing the scene of the crime, scrambling up the side of buildings as she is pursued by a group of what seemed, at the time, like parkouring gang members. I don't have much experience with parkour save this scene from The Office:
Needless to say, Staci's novel has completely erased my Michael Scott preconceptions as I saw Cory leaping Trinity-style from rooftop to rooftop pursued by someone who turns out to be the hottest guy in the city.
Of course, next we need to cue the sexy! Hart's description of the sex scenes were hot and vivid. She invites us into a gritty and enjoyable world.
What I really loved about Hardcore was the plot interwoven with all the sexiness. At the heart of this erotic serial is the tale of a girl turned thief trying to help save her sister from her own fate. Cory is an interesting, mouthy, bisexual, rugged, and fun character. I loved her. Hart's new series is "thinking girl's erotica": lots of hot scenes but a fun, and well-described and well-written, story to boot. It's so worth the 99 pennies!
