it was ok
Read in August, 2011

I was such a lover of her first book, Vixen, and I was so looking forward to this one. But it almost felt like Larkin forgot how to write; and, if not that, she completely forgot who her characters were in the first. She tried passing it off as "characterization," but it felt force and contrived--the things she made these once so believable characters into. Now they're flat, stale, unlikeable. Even her plot remains the same, she just rotates what happened to which characters. After making Lorraine so unlikeable in the first, now it's Clara I hate. And after a juicy, deadly-romantic debut, this turns into an ultra-feminist, I-hate-men platform.

I'm so disappointed. I think because I wanted so much to like it.
