Greetings, Earthlings. Agent Z. here, intergalactic spy extraordinaire and the entity Diane Dooley likes to refer to as her alter-ego. The poor old thing hasn’t yet realized that she is naught but a figment of my imagination. I like to humor her, especially when I’ve got her doing all my laundry for me. While Dooley’s folding my unmentionables, I’m taking over her blog for National Mock Review Month (NaMoReMo) in conjunction with those blog geeks over at Absolute Write. You can find links to their mocking fake reviews after mine.

Today I’ll be fake reviewing Dooley’s science fiction/romance novella, Mako’s Bounty. It’s the story of a slutty piece of space trash called Makiko Dolan who bounty hunts bottom feeders for a living. She’s got sharpened teeth, a bad attitude and cusses like a drunken dockworker. Classy, she ain’t. She reminded me of…well, me. So that’s good.
She’s been on the tail of a space pirate called The Saint and the wily bastard keeps slipping through her fingers, so Mako hits on the idea of reeling him in with her body. She lures him to a one night stand in a fancy resort on Earth. There she intends to use her body and her wiles to capture and turn him in for a huge wad of cash. I completely approve!
The Saint ain’t as gullible as she thinks, though. He knows exactly why she’s there and he’s gone along with the plan ‘cos he intends to use his body and wiles to capture and turn her into one of his loyal disciples. Did I mention that The Saint is gorgeous?
With this set-up I was ready for the rest of the story to be an endless succession of sex scenes, followed by some more sex scenes and ending with yet another sex scene. And I was so ready. But does Dooley deliver the goods? Hell, no! I mean there were plenty of sex scenes, but Dooley kept interspersing them with deep conversations, “witty’ banter, and the characters getting to know each other and falling in love. Blech. She even indulges her childish penchant for word building. *sigh*
I keep hoping that one of these days Dooley will live up to her promise and deliver a good, old-fashioned filthy book unadorned with anything except throbbing manhoods, sweat-drenched pectorals and multiple orgasms. Sadly and predictably, Mako’s Bounty is not that book. Better luck next time, Dooley.

I’ll make Dooley update the links as writers join the chain. It’ll give her something to do after my laundry is finished.
Be seeing ya!
