There are too many sex scenes but it gives some readers the passion to read it more.

Yes, there were so many sex scenes that would distract you from the main plot

I agree that the content is not appropriate for the genre. It’s not typical for me to read a science fiction novel with that much sexual content, especially considering that this genre is one so popular among young adult readers.

I sometimes like reading such stuff but then I tend to forget the main story and get into such thoughts ?

Yes, I think the book was more focused on sexuality. In the beginning, you didn't really have a lot of mature scenes, but once Marty and Jennifer started dating, there were so many sex scenes that you kind of lost sight of what Jennifer was trying to do and what the point of the story is.

The author of the book is following this forum. We hope to pass on the message to that it could improve the upcoming books ?

I have gone through several reviews done on this book. The book has sexual scenes and one may tend to think that the woman is sexually hungry. But it seems that she is love struck.

Love struck one could say if you are going very mild on her.

This is very true. While I was happy that the two of them started dating, it was simply overwhelming the amount of sexual partners they took on after that.

The more number of people involved, the lesser we were interested.

For me it is a good thing because sexuality is no more a taboo either in television or a book it is normal.

I don’t think the issue with most readers was sexuality itself. You have to have balance and reason within a novel, and that is what was lacking.
