Hotel of Love - Dorothy Starr Dani works the front desk at a hotel whose water source causes those who come into contact with it to become sexually aroused and apparently no one is immune. There’s no need for Viagra at this place. In between bouts of sexual delight, Dani and her co-workers learn that a potential new owner may be spying on them and fear their jobs may be in jeopardy because they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other and the guests. But don’t worry, they don’t let that pesky detail curtail their fun.

Each chapter includes a sexual escapade between the numerous characters in and around the hotel. It’s all strung together with the fabled water and the ferreting out of the new owner. The plot is thin and the characterization is a bit stereotypical and you don’t get to really know what motivates any of these people. There’s a sweet romance author looking to expand her writing horizons by experiencing some genuine lusty sex (which turns out to be bland), an Ice Queen who runs the place and secretly likes a little kink, a hunky bespectacled male receptionist named Mitch who wanders about with a perpetual hard-on for all the gals, Dani the straight sassy receptionist who discovers she’s attracted to the free spirited cleaning gal and Mitch (and a tennis player and on and on) and numerous other characters inserted here and there when it’s time for an action scene.

The first sex scene where Mitch decides to tease Dani mercilessly when she’s being lectured by the Ice Queen was the hottest of the bunch and led me to believe the rest of the book would be just as stimulating. Too bad it wasn’t so. Water, of course, is usually involved because it may or may not be an aphrodisiac but honestly I don’t think any of these people needed it so that plot point was a bit pointless. There is some f/f action, light spanking, and of course voyeurism. It was all mildly erotic but somewhat uninspired. The plot of some mysterious someone overlooking them all adds a wee bit of intrigue, sort like a game of Clue without the tantalizing murder bits, but it wasn’t enough to make this a book worth searching out.
