did not like it

I hope this author is paying royalties to Twilight and Pretty Woman for the ideas and themes she used in this book. The dialogue was cheesy, the beautiful but doesn't know it and thinks she's super clumsy main character by no means portrays any American college student I've met. Oh, of course she's a virgin. Of course he's into safe sex. And if course she is changing him for wanting more in a relationship. Someone should do a word count for the number of times she used the word wow and holy something and crap. And if I never hear about her inner goddess, sub conscience or a foil packet, I will be a much happier person. And the term mommy porn is just plain gross.

Anne Hahahaha... I'm with you with this book.. It's actually "inner Goddess" and "medulla oblongata" that was getting on my nerves.. I'm about to go to the UK and hand her a dictionary... It's cheap corny porn!! Smh!

Jessie R I just wrote my review and was wondering whether or not, somebody else would have picked up on the Pretty Woman allusions..
I also thought it was quite obvious!
