Spider Game by Christine Feehan


Spider Game - Christine Feehan

Spider Game (GhostWalkers #12)



The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.



My Review:

Christine honey I love you. I really do. So when I say its time to re-evaluate your writing and your choice in character portrayal, I really hope you take it into consideration.

I really don't want to lose yet another author to this issue because your writing has meant so much to me over the years. But one series after another the Dark series, the Sisters series, and now the Ghostwalker series has had male leads that are violent, they're controlling, they're abusive on a physical, sexual, mental and emotional level that is disturbing and frankly does not belong anywhere near romance.

An authors writing reflects the authors mind and I am saddened by the kind of content and treatment that you are putting in your stories. I understand a need to create a sense of ownership and control but what you have put into your books lately truly bothers me.

As a person who has been on the receiving end of abusive relationships the kind of treatment you're forcing your female leads to endure is horrific and heartbreaking.

I used to really love your characters males and females all but the kind of savagery you are exploring in your stories is something I can't support if it continues. Please take this into consideration before you lose a large chunk of your female fans because I know I am not the only one who feels this way.
