One Does Not Simply Walk Into Tudor
Ivery Kirk and Luna Teague
I was challenged to read this book by a friend (Doug, I’m looking at you!) I met at MidAmericon II. I’ll admit I wasn’t going to review this book on my blog because I don’t normally read this type of book. However, I changed my mind as One Does Not Simply Walk into Tudor grew on me as I read it in preparation for a late night adult reading for ICON 41.
The only other book I’ve read that vaguely falls into the same genre as One Does Not Simply Walk into Tudor is Fifty Shades of Grey. And yes, I read all 3 books and yes, I was sorely disappointed in the lack of character development and repetitive nature of the plot. One Does Not Simply Walk into Tudor was a refreshing hilarious romp through time and well written.
The book is truly about friendships and how friendships, no matter how much time has passed, can be renewed. Beth and Tawny’s friendship was genuine and was the driving piece of the story—how they would travel through time to save each other’s asses.
I will admit the steamy bits were indeed steamy. *blushes* They didn’t feel awkward or forced as I have experienced in your standard nickel-nasty. The steamy bits didn’t overwhelm the novel either. If you are a fan of the steamy bits, Kirk and Teague provided, in the electronic version, an index right at the start that will jump you right to those passages with a simple click.
Is One Does Not Simply Walk into Tudor the next Outlander? No, but it was a fun diversion for a few short days and certainly raised my expectations for erotic fiction. I’ll also probably never look at Ann Boleyn in the same way again.
