My interest has been pricked and I can't wait to find out just how bad this book truly is. Will I regret my headache later? Probably. But the price we pay to stay entertained is worth it.
OMG. What the hell did I just read? LOLOLOLOL.
You, Abandon, is a joke. J-O-K-E. I can't believe they dare call this thing a book, much less got it published.

It's annoying as hell and just make the book a bored to read.
"Oh no, I have to protect my precious brother even though he's a jerk, rebellious, and dosen't give a rat's ass about me. But! If I save him then that'll prove that I'm a part of this family and maybe he'll learn to love me. Oh no! The hero is giving me googling eyes. My breasts are heaving heavily and his arms are around me bending me over the table. His dark skin is so dark against my pearly milky skin. Oh no, I must resist him but his magically kisses are making me forget about my brother. Oh no! I must not fall for temptation! He's only kissing my kissable lips because he wants to know where my rebellious brother is. No matter how long he starves me and "tortures" me into confessing where my brother is, if he learns of my dark past he'll become my gentle hero and he'll save my brother! Oh no! Is this LOVE?!?"
Ok, ok, I must have slightly exaggerated on some parts (because I was skimming by the half-way point) but the heroine who is trying to save her brother is such a turn-off in books. Grow up women! He's still going to be the lousy brother he always was no matter how much you try to talk some sense into his over zealous head. (less)

If there's anything I hate more than when the author who makes the hero a cheater is when she makes him repeatedly repeats "You're mine" as he savagely rips into her throat or "You and I are mate forever b/c we're mates for life."
That becomes a load of crap when it's all we hear from the main guy, the secondary characters, and the stupid narration. I get it, damnit! You're freaking mates and you like them to be "mine" forever. STFU!
Oh yeah, I found the guy and the chit to be annoying and totally deserving of each other. In other word, a complete mess of a couple who solves their problems by letting other people interfere and creating more problems for their problems. How romantic. NOT. Just plain irritating.
I even skipped over the sex scenes. That's how much I hated them. I actually wanted them to find their HEA in the arms of their enemies. Now wouldn't that be romantic?
Plus, the ONLY reason why I read one of my to-be-avoided-author is b/c I've been sick lately and can't get out of bed so I ask my sister who works at the library to get all the books with red and orange covers. Leigh's book was one of them and I went why the hell not to only regretting it less then a day later.(less)
I can so imagine this book as one of those over-dramatic plays that you just cringe at but can't stop watching because it's so terrible.
Our-so-called-...moreI can so imagine this book as one of those over-dramatic plays that you just cringe at but can't stop watching because it's so terrible.
Our-so-called-Heroine: "Trust me because you know me for only a week and I already betrayed you but in all honesty you made me change my mind because of your dark wet kisses that has made me feel this tingle tingle feeling I've never felt before.
-Tell me everything about yourself because I just have to know why you're this brooding dark hero who's angry at the whole world so I can turn you into my ideal lover who's whipped like cream to my cupcake and leave the thought of revenge behind because fighting equals bloody bad.
-I'm an independent strong woman who will never bow to a man and I will fight you like a hellcat until you paw my breasts and give me orgasms with your large dick and I can even imagine myself in love with you after just three romps."
Our-so-called-Hero "I couldn't and wouldn't love you but God damnit, your magically vay-jay-jay just made me a believer."(less)
How the hell do you go from the so-called hero getting a blow-job from a whore dress as a nun after walking away from the heroine who had been trying...moreHow the hell do you go from the so-called hero getting a blow-job from a whore dress as a nun after walking away from the heroine who had been trying to seduce him but pretending to not be interested in him so he wouldn't know that she wanted to in fact married him so she learn the art of seduction from a courtesan to only have him find out she has been playing him this whole time so he goes and get a blow job from a whore dressed as a nun and she witnesses it and somehow they get engaged and he tries to win her back because now she thinks he's a scroundel but he tries to convince her that he wants her for her body and by God! they will make this bloody marriage work because this "chit" will share his bed and somehow she gets marry to this walking STD. Confused? So am I. Let's go grab a drink. And I kid you not, he calls her "chit" so many times I wanted to scream.
