Flint by Fran Lee


Heat Rating

I was given Flint for an honest review by Manic Readers

Lily is on the run from her monkey farting poop stick of a murdering step dad. She knows he killed her mother and fears she is next. He has done everything in his power to chain her to him and now he plans to force himself on her so she runs even knowing that if she is caught she will be returned to him.

Flint and his friend Curly are in Austin where he took a pretty rough ride during the rodeo. Sleeping it off he is woken in the middle of the night to a noose and what should he find but a woman laying on the floor

I had a few notes that I took to help me with this review but much to my consternation my stupid screenshot app didn't save a single one of my notes so forgive me as I muddle through this review as I had to go back and review the book and find things I know I remarked on. I have replaced my screenshot app so hopefully that won't happen again because it took me an hour just to find the quotes I liked and really wanted to share.

Now to Flint which maybe has potential but it really needs some work, first the blurb promises and erotic rocking good time but what we got was a front porch scene that wasn't too bad with its steaminess but not a really a "I need my toy or a cold shower" moment. Then there was the moment in the cab of the truck how was that erotic it had the potential for hot with more detail but erotic nope no way in heck was it even close.

The threat of from the cheese dick step dad might have been more believable if he had showed up sooner in the story, like maybe when she was in the police station or if maybe he had been in Austin looking for her and Lily was ducking into Flint hotel room to actually hide from him. There really wasn't much to make Flint a credible story, except maybe her bruises, until the end of the story.

I honestly feel that Fran Lee could have done better with Flint because it seems like there was more to the story and she left it out. I doubt that I will keep and read this book again.

Favorite Quotes

“Curly has good reason to believe he’s God’s gift to women, and he doesn’t bother to
hide it. Sorry about that.”--Flint

“Well, he might think so, but you’ve got him beat all to hell…”--Lily

Book Cover Rating
The cover is hot but nothing to write home about.

Book Blurb Rating
In the blurb for Flint there is a note for naughty words and erotic content my question is where is the erotic content?

NOTE: Erotic content and naughty words abound.

Flint Calderon was a hard working, hard-bodied, hard headed Texan who'd had to grow up fast. He'd been alone for a long time. He'd kept his grand daddy's sprawling ranch intact in spite of hardships and loss...some said he was as hard as his name.

He didn't take anything he hadn't worked damned hard for. He had his own set of personal guidelines that left no room for cruelty or deceit. He kept his friends close, and his loyalty was a thing of legend in Calder County, Texas.

He went by three simple rules: Keep your word no matter what, pay your debts before buyin' more, and protect those weaker than yourself.

Lily was running from her own personal hell, only to jump from the frying pan into the fire. But the man who'd caught her sneaking into his motel room to get out of the rain was nothing like the bastard she was running from. Even being pinned on that motel bed under a pissed-off cowboy was a damn sight better than being dragged back to the man who'd murdered her mom and made her own life a living hell for so long. If only the hot cowboy wasn't naked as a jaybird...

How could he turn her over to the law? The woman he'd caught was just a rain-soaked, freezing, starving, badly battered little hellcat with nowhere to go and nothin' much to lose. And whoever had beat the hell out of her deserved no mercy...
