A Harlequin romance by any other name is still a Harlequin -- and I stopped reading Harlequins years ago because I was bored to tears by the formulaic writing and the insistence on confusing eroticism with romance.
Somebody Killed His Editor is a Harlequin--soft-core trying to dress up as a mystery and failing at both.
If I had only seen the erotic content warning on the product description, I would not have bought the book in the first place. But I skipped the description and went right to the reviews, which all seemed to rave about the book.
I returned the book.
