Vanessa Jaye's Book Daze

Romance author and enthusiastic reader
Slave of the Outlands - Reese Gabriel World building melted away about 1/3 in and the integrity of the main character turned into Swiss cheese. She went from being strong/intelligent heroine determined to make her own fate to a collection of clenching/tightening/aching:dripping body parts at the first nipple tweak.

And the premise of captured by the barbarian and surviving in the Outlands pretty much never happened until the last couple of pages, ie under developed & a disappointment.

The barbarian was underdeveloped basically a a big dick on a grunting slab of muscle.
