Sex and Violence

Readers have expectations about the authors and characters they read, particularly recurring characters. Unless I miss my guess, readers of Bo Fexler stories expect to see sex, violence, profanity and smarts.

To me, of course, there is more the Bo than sex and violence. I'm most interested in her ability to solve cases, through any means necessary.

But is it ever a disappointment to read a Bo Fexler story that's missing the sex and violence?

What authors or characters have you read that you were disappointed by a deviation from the expected?

I would like to see one or the other. It would be like seeing a James Bond movie without the gadgets and sex. Not as much fun, I think.
