It failed in the end so probably no.

I probably won't read the next book in the series due to the large amounts of unnecessary sex in the first book, but if the author reads the reviews, and decides to scale it down a bit going forward, I would be open to it.

I don’t think that’s a good idea because I didn’t find it worth it to expand the story to such an extent after all the end a bit disappointing.

Unfortunately, serieses discourage me quite a bit. I might have to pass on this one.

I'm not sure that I would read a second book in this series. For me, I would like to see more movement of the plot and have the sex scenes toned down a bit.

I usually finish a series as I'm always dying to find out what happens to the characters. However, I'll be skipping any explicit scenes featured in the next installment as they did nothing to further the plot.

I was somewhat disappointed with book two, because, in my opinion, there was too little actual story and too many sex scenes. Still I will read the next one, since I really like to know what happens next.

Not really. I liked the premise and the beginning, but the plot deviated too much from what I was expecting. I would have liked some more focus on the future and the nature of the 30th century conflict. While I'd like to know what will happen when Jennifer tells Marty about her true identity, that's just not enough for me to consider reading a sequel.

I'll check it out but it's definitely not one of those books I'll hold my breath for.

Not at all. Book 1 bored me to death so can't think of reading another such book.

Oddly, yes. I'd like to know more about Jenny, if nothing else.

Although I know the second book would explore more of the actual storyline, I would not read it because of how disappointing the first one was.

I am not planning to read the sequel and it's definitely something I wouldn't recommend to others. If the next book actually worked more on plot and character development instead of all the random sex scenes I would think about it.
