A relationship between two completely different people, that feels way too rushed, way too intense and it always goes wrong at about 3/4 of the book... And they always end up with their soulmate, have omfg amazing sex, are completely devoted to each other... It's just too much recycling and too predictable.. I just want something new!...more

Probably because things are retold from so-called memory, and the author was just a kid back then.
The ending was just what ruined it completely for me. I didn't exactly understand how things went from weird stalker things to that and what it had to do with the 'the man' and his obsession with the narrator.
This story had it's moments, but not too many of them, alas....more

It took me a while to get what was going on, but I guess I kinda felt the same way Meg did because both of us were almost complete strangers to this new and amazing world.
It was so much fun discovering everything, while nothing felt rushed or too complicated. I adore Meg and all of her friends, even if some of them are quite um... interesting.

(don't even get me started) Now, I also have a reason to stay away from the fictional ones.
Don't get me wrong: Bikes, yay! Bikers, also yay! Books about bikers? Not so much.
It starts with why Horse is called Horse... I'd wink-wink-nudge-nudge you but how's this for a visual: You can borrow a certain body part whenever it gets chilly outside and you forgot to bring a scarf. Yep, that's why. -massive eye rolling-
The rest of the book is just as ridic as the main character's nickname. He falls instantly in love with a girl he barely knows, (who of course is the most BAMF-chick you'll ever meet!) claims her as his own (PROPERTY OF!) and basically, the rest of the book they fight, boink or have make up sex. The story was lame, predictable as hell and the brother was just a plot device who didn't even get the screen time he deserves. He's only there for the first quarter of the book (barely) and he pops up again for the last two chapters or so.
I nearly rolled my eyes out, and came close to hurting my poor defenseless Kindle, so I don't think I'll bother with the rest of the series. It's probably the same, but worse. So much worse......more

First of all, there were so many pages and I was expecting I'd get bored not even halfway through it, but apparently I was wrong because I finished it in less than a week.
If this is what love is supposed to be like then I really don't know if I still want it. There is so much love and so much pain, and it kills me. I always knew what was coming and it didn't hurt any less when it happened.
I have been let down a lot in my love life and while you are in a bad relationship, you kinda don't see things the way they are because after a while you feel like you need that person in your life. And honestly, when love is that bad, you really don't. Dusty may be the one with the heavy addiction, but Bliss is just as bad.
What they both need from each other is something I hope I'll never have to experience in my life, and I've been in some pretty shitty relationships. I don't want somebody to be my breath, my blood or my life, I want somebody that completes me, not a poisoned apple.
I can't say I really enjoyed reading this (because of the subject) but as far as stories go, this one kept me going....more

I loved this book just as much as the first 3, but I have to get this off my chest.
It's starting to bug me that there is almost NO development in the relationship between Charley and Reyes. It's always the same thing: they are angry at each other for lots of reasons, but as soon as you put them in the same room they are in a life-or-death situation, where Reyes jumps in and cuts through her attacker's spine, or he is all over her lady parts and very much into heavy petting. (the latter I don't mind honestly, but sometimes he does it in situations where I'm shrieking "WHAT, NOW???" at my Kindle, and adds absolutely nothing to the story, besides giving the reader a few pleasant tingles in her very own lady parts.)
Kissing collar bones, nipping on ear lobes, heavy neck breathing... That's all really nice but I'd like to see something different now.
I understand their dynamics and why they are attracted to each other on a deeper level, but neither of them can keep it in their pants.
He's constantly telling her she is capable of almost anything (at least something new happened to her in this book, which I loved) but even Reyes doesn't know what that means exactly, and up intil the very end she was too stubborn to actually listen for once.
I'm hoping him moving in next door will actually make things happen for them, because I'll be the one about to have an out-of-body experience if they don't get to know each other on a more 'normal' level....more
Some parts got so drawn out it kinda felt like 'oh yeah, wait, we just need to squeeze this in right before the ending!' while other things rushed bySome parts got so drawn out it kinda felt like 'oh yeah, wait, we just need to squeeze this in right before the ending!' while other things rushed by so fast I had to read some parts at least twice. And for some reason (could be me) it isn't always too clear for me where or how a character is standing so it's difficult for me to picture the scene in my head.
That could be because English isn't my first language but I've never had this much trouble.
But still, I did enjoy this a lot, probably because of Charley's insane sense of humor (plus the bumper stickers and t-shirts) and her interactions with Cookie.
And Reyes just... Pops up. Sometimes.(but I love those parts the most, for obvious reasons)...more

I love it when a book keeps me up at night, when I just can't wait to get home and read :) I just wish I had more to say about this one, besides OMGSOAMAZING and OMGILOVEDIT.
I kinda suck at writing reviews about books I adore, I just sit there, all starry-eyed, imagining doing all kinds of romantic stuff with Reyes this book... Walk down the aisle while Reyes is waiting for me by the altar... Stand at the front of a boat while stretching my arms out while Reyes is pressing up against my back but then his hands slide down my...

I know nobody forced me to into reading this thing, so I'll admit I was prepared for at least a little self-torture while I was reading this but Great Scott, this thing was even worse (so so SO much WORSE) hearing it from Travis than when it was coming from Abby.
I honestly don't understand what this relationship is based on besides ownership... I really was hoping I'd 'get it' somehow but alas.
Abby has no backbone, no matter how hard she pretends. She isn't some badass semi-famous chick nobody's ever heard of, she is just unconditionally and irrevocably in love (couldn't resist, sorry) with a guy who constantly tells her what to do. And she just... agrees. To anything really. Even after a few weak attempts to stand up to him, she just... does whatever the hell it is Travis wants from her.
You have to come with me Pidge, you can't take a drink from that guy Pidge, don't talk to other men, because you don't know what kind of world this is Pidge (really???), OMG don't show your tits (such a horrible word) to other guys Pidge, I'm the only guy in the world you should love and want Pidge, we are meant to be together Pidge... PIDGE PIDGE PIDGE!
AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO IS TIRED OF HEARING THAT RIDICULOUS NICKNAME??
--> that's kinda all she does to him really. And then just does what he asks. Again.
She's portrayed (Travis even says so multiple times) like she constantly challenges him and doesn't put up with any of his crap but honestly she's just another Bella on the pages, but with more liquor and (thank god for that) little bit of sex.
PS: I drive a Harley myself. My bike has written badass all over it, and it can shut up quite a few of the rest of them, but if I try racing it or driving it like maniac, I'd be dead by the end of next week. The type is never specified as far as I can remember, but I know for a fact that 98% of all Harleys aren't designed for high speeds or tight corners. Travis probably just has one because it fits the entire bad boy stereotype and because everybody knows the brand. I'm guessing reading about how the guy jumped on his Suzuki or his Kawasaki just doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
