I am disappointed in this book. With the little bits of Collins introduced in the first three books I was expecting him to have a sweeter story. I did not get what I expected. The love interest is not likable. She just shows up on his doorstop and expects him to hold on to something he promised as a teenager. She looked him up online, enough to find out where he lives and what he does, but conveniently looked over the pictures of his live in girlfriend and then just decided to roll the dice and see what happens. Just because you tell yourself you are not a home wrecker, and proceed to display actions to support you being a home wrecker, does not negate the fact you are a home wrecker. I could not like her. No matter what.
Then there’s Collins. The older, “mature,” brother. Just hung on to his hot model girlfriend until something better came along. That’s the right way to do it right? No? Ok then let’s make out with the long lost love of my life, who I have made no effort what so ever in the last 15 years to find, under the same roof of the home I share with my girlfriend of three years. That bitch does not deserve to be
broken up with in a decent manner after three years, not months, into a relationship. The icing on the cake? Let’s make her look like the bad bitch by having her grinding up on some guy but let’s forget that Collins dry humped someone prior to that.
Then the best part. The ending. Just threw it together in a few weeks and we will live happily ever after. I rolled my eyes throughout this whole book. I am a sucker for a good love story. This was not one.
I’m in a reading slump. I can not find a good book to read. The last book I read, one I still think about, and would recommend others to read, is Roman Crazy. I’ve read several books since then and have been disappointed by most of them.
What is happening to my favorite authors? Are they getting too comfortable and not putting in the same effort as their first few books? Am I becoming a book snob? I think my expectations have been raised.
I read all the time, I find myself slowing down because I can’t seem to find anything appealing. I don’t want to go back to authors who used to be my go to, because they are just not doingit for me anymore.
I might just take a few weeks off reading and just watch some movies. Or reread books that I loved in the past. Maybe that will help me get over this rut I’m in.
I got this book from Net Galley. I have been in a book rut. I was so excited when I was sent this book to read. I love aLice Clayton’s writing style and this book did not disappoint. I love that the story does not have unnecessary drama, that it is just a wonderful sweet second chance love story. I have already told many people to read this and I will be sure to add this to my most recommended list.
When I started reading this book I asked myself why I waited so long to read it. Then I got through 1/3 of the book and I realized why. I got motion sickness from the constant see-saw affect. Do we, don’t we, are we, aren’t we? My eyes were tired from all the times I was rolling them. I was ready to give this book
I am getting to the end of reading this series. Lindsey is getting more annoying, the writing is getting worse, the women are all over the place. This was ok. I know there is potential for better, i just don’t see them getting better.
