So, the blurb for this says it’s a post-apocalyptic shifter romance. I open it up and it says 1502 Scotland. Um…okay? I start reading and it’s some clich├ęd arranged marriage between an English beauty/tomboy and an asshat Scottish laird who just wants a doll to show off. So not what the blurb says. After reading about 3%, I look at the Table of Contents and see the actual book, Bear Necessities, is at the back of the book. Seriously?

No. Just, no. If this is a mistake then it should have been fixed. If it’s not then this is the biggest piece of bullshit asshattery and douchebaggery I’ve seen in a long time. I’m guessing here, but since the book is in Kindle Unlimited and available for the Kindle Lending Library, you’re going to make people flip through the book so you get paid more for it. A bonus story is fine, but the story advertised should be the first fucking story in it. I wasted my February KLL pick on this slimy piece of shit tactic. I will never, ever pick up another book by this author. Ever. And I don’t give a filthy rat’s ass that I rated this book without reading the ACTUAL story that’s advertised. What I read of the first story is third rate crap anyway, so my hopes are not high that the quality of the ACTUAL story is any good. And I'm NOT $cha-chinging$ the author by flipping pages until I get to the ADVERTISED story. You know, the one I actually wanted to read. Fuckyouverymuch.

  1. Wow! That is pretty crappy. I've read some of Selena Kitt's stuff. She is very hit or miss for me. I do agree with you, if this is an error, it should be fix. If it is a ploy to get more page "read" to get more royalities, then that is BS. Is there a way to report this to Amazon? Hope you have better luck with your next book.

    1. I guess you can tell I was not pleased. lol I'm not sure about the reporting part. I may look into it. I think for future picks I'll look at the sample first. Just to make sure.

  2. Wow, that is so weird. I would be like you. If it's not lining up to the blurb then I feel I am not getting what I wanted to read. Bonus is okay but after the the advertised story..bummer.

    1. Exactly. To me, it's false advertising. I'm all for authors making more money, but not in a shitty way like this. If that's the case. I'm only guessing here.
