Someone recommended Pack Challenge by Shelly Laurenston to me. It's erotica FYI--not really sure if this is the place for questions about that, but I thought I would try anyway. The main character has this obsession with the words slut and whore, and I'm starting to find it annoying
She glanced over at the clock on her night table. She still had a couple of hours before she had to be into work, but she just couldn’t face Zach when he woke up. He would, naturally, think her a big ol’ slut. Probably want to pass her around to his friends. And she couldn’t really blame him. She hadn’t merely thrown herself at the guy. She’d practically tackled him. The thought made her cheeks burn.
Finally she loosened her grip on him. But, to his surprise, she wrapped her arms around his neck and leaned her forehead against his chest. “When, exactly, did I become such a fucking whore?”
Now Zach was completely confused. “What are you talking about?”
“Me. I’m a whore.” Zach wasn’t sure if she wanted him to start calling her that during sex or if she was serious. Instead of potentially sending her spiraling into depression, he decided to go with her possibly being serious.
“Do you do this sort of thing with everybody in town?”
“No!” She looked up at him, completely insulted.
“Then you’re not a whore. Psychotic? Absolutely. Whore? No.
The main character appears to use the words "slut" and "whore" on every single page.
The Goodreads reviews are a mixed bag: some people seem to like the book and some people don't. The reviews that don't like the book all seem to mention the main character's use of the words "slut" and "whore". The reviews that are positive don't seem to mention it at all. I'm trying to understand the perspective of people who don't find this annoying.
Why does the main character use these words so frequently?
