REVIEW: Unblocked, #1 by Marni Mann

Unblocked, #1
Marni Mann
109 Pages

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about this book. Those of you who have followed my reading habits know that I am one of Marni Mann’s biggest fans – I have read all her work – but as soon as I heard that she’d planned to trade her literary hat for a serial erotica one, I was prepared to be disappointed.

Well guess what Marni, you can’t get rid of us that easy.

The first serial of Unblocked is short compared to Mann’s previous works – she is known for her wordiness – but it is not any less packed with suspense, irresistible sex, and Mann’s stunning way of weaving her character’s stories together like a ribbon caught in the wind. There really is no erotica out there like Marni Mann erotica, and Unblocked doesn’t change that.

There is so much drama in this series, which, if I was reading YA, would cause an eyeroll, but it’s real and not overdone, so it is so relatable. This world she has created in the real estate business is delicious, and I ate it up. Once I got over my fear of losing Mann’s prized style – which this book stands tall against – I could not put it down. And cliffs beware, the ending of this book will steal your breath away. Lucky for her readers, though, these books are coming out very fast. This series is relatively new, but I’ve got the second one waiting on my tablet, and I’m sure the third one is due out soon.

I would highly recommend this series to fans of C.D. Reiss, and all the erotica fans on my list.
