Spinner - Ryssa Edwards ** 2 plain stupid stars **

"Tell the truth even if your voice shakes."

The writing in this story was good, I liked the quote binding the story together. It could have been great, but wasn't.

I refuse to believe that the tough, skilled Marine, who has risked his life and faced many dangers through his career, would readily be so careless and risk his life in a whole different way and trust a guy he just met a few hours ago to not use a condom. The "enemy" which might, or might not be present, will definitely kill you, Marine. 

It pisses me off that authors choose to let their characters have unprotected sex with someone they don't know. Is it supposed to show trust and bring the characters closer to not wear a condom? Well, it's just plain stupid, is what it is. :(
