There are so many things wrong with Acheron that I could write a book listing them one by one. and honestly, I've already wasted too much time readingThere are so many things wrong with Acheron that I could write a book listing them one by one. and honestly, I've already wasted too much time reading it so here is only a summary:
Part 1: Consisted of nothing more than 400 pages of detailed abuse suffered by Ash when he was human. Any kind of despicable thing that can be done to a human being was done to Ash and we had to read through them. It was a surprise I didn't puke due to the graphic details Sherrilyn decided to burden her readers with.
Part 2: Consisted of one the worst written PNR books I've come across. The dialogues were so cheesy to the point that I figured I needed wine to accompany them. Ash's love interest, Tory, was one dimensional, the chemistry between them was non existent, and it was really hard to buy their relationship. I also didn't recognize Ash's character at all, and I'm not talking about his romantic side (which amounted for the cheesy moments and dialogues). He was just not himself. I wondered at one point if he had been replaced by a pod person.
The distinction between parts 1 and 2 was so great that I honestly thought that they had been written by two different people. You can see the attention to detail Sherrilyn put in writing part 1. It was like she took pleasure coming up with gruesome ways Ash could be torn apart. In part 2, it was like she didn't care. She created a mousy, geek, nosy girl to be the girl to steal Ash's heart (barf) who was also into high adrenaline sports. Yeah, right. Only in fiction. But she had no depth, she just freaking annoying.
So, sadly my love affair with the Dark Hunter series has come to an end. And what a bitter and disappointing end....more

I just don't like conniving bitches and schemes that keep the hero and the heroine apart. It just too much like daytime soap opera to my taste, you know? It's so funny because I actually liked Brooke in Between the Lines. It was sort of a breath of fresh air to see a typical, blonde, femme fatale being actually nice and sincere. Well, she fooled me, lol. I still liked Emma and Graham despite the fact that they were too naive to function. I could understand Emma being like that, but Graham? It was hard to swallow. He could see Reid's scheming but he couldn't see that on Brooke? Really? I didn't buy it. I skipped the majority of Brooke's POVs. She was just down right annoying. Reid was an asshole but at least his POVs were sort of entertaining. There was nothing entertaining about Brooke. On that note I wish there were more Emma and Graham's POVs....more
