Womb for Rent (Amanda Brian) – Chapter Five

Talli dresses up for the Zoo Auction and is shocked at how revealing her dress is [You can see a leg *gasp*! It has a neckline (no, not even a plunging one, more a toe-dipping one) *gasp*!].

Womb for Rent (Amanda Brian) – Chapter Four

Chapter four starts with a lengthy description of Derek’s office (mahogany, green leather and disco light style paper weights), where he, Talli and Anthony came together to sign the contract.

Derek is on the phone but his ebony gaze is on Talli. Again the ebony. And again my question: Can gazes have colours?

Womb for Rent (Amanda Brian) – Chapter Three

Chapter Three starts where Chapter Two left off: Derek scrambles up from under is desk to see the woman who owns the gorgeous legs and finds this:

Her face, from what he could see of it, was hidden by a pair of ugly, oversized, gray tinted horn-rimmed glasses and a huge gray fedora.  A neat chignon held auburn tresses in place at the base of her neck.

She introduces herself as Tallulah Jayne Paxton.

Womb For Rent (Amanda Brian) – Chapter Two

Derek lifted his weary head and let his glasses drop onto the leather inlaid desktop. “These have potential. This one here… Miss Schmitz. Set up an appointment today at eleven, follow it at twelve-thirty with Miss Casanova. Same for tomorrow with Miss Bender and Miss Hite.”

That’s how chapter two starts.  Derek is in the middle of  looking through applications by women who really, really, really want to have his child. And I can only wonder – somebody named Miss Casanova? And that’s actually one with potential?

Womb For Rent (Amanda Brian) – Chapter One: 5 years later

Enter Talli Paxton:

Talli’s long, auburn ponytail swung playfully with her movements as she jogged backward toward the pool house.

Why does she jog backwards? Is it too boring to do it the right way round? Or maybe it’s opposite day and Talli got it wrong?

Anyway, Talli is the dog sitter and as it’s her duty, she introduces us to the dogs.

“Jack, what’s new big guy?” The male Dalmatian sat preening, his sleek coat smooth in the morning sun. Moving on, she ran her hands over Mary, Jack’s female counterpart.

Well, thanks for telling us the dogs’ gender, I’m afraid with names like Jack and Mary I wouldn’t have guessed otherwise. There’s also George and Gracie, two Basset Hounds. I hope at least some of them sterilised or they could supply all of the US with puppies in a couple of years.
Why does somebody have four dogs anyway when they have to employ a dog sitter?

Womb For Rent (Amanda Brian) – Prologue

The story starts with a wedding – who doesn’t like a wedding? Especially one like this.

The wedding was perfect in every sense of the word.

We’ll see right away how perfect – the prologue is about one page and half of it is spent on describing the bride’s dress, the champagne fountain and the caviar (Caviar surrounded the base of the fountain, their tiny beads reminiscent of red and black jewels under the soft glow from the chandeliers.) I don’t know about you but I usually spent my time at a wedding looking at the food and comparing it to jewellery, noble metal and, of course, noble gas.

Just a small sidenote

If you want write a book mostly aimed at women, which romance novels ursually are, don’t give it a title that suggests you can rent or buy any female body part. Unless the book is about hookers or a thriller about a female body parts smuggling ring of pirates. Then it’s ok.
