Um... so, this didn't start too well.
The heroine is sarcastic and angry, because... hm. And the hero is... because...

Skimming, skimming, sex scene.
Okay, what??
Whoa!

Right now, this feels like it needs another dimension. In a very bad way.
And, since my OCD will most definitely not let me just leave it unfinished, I'll give it a rest for... indefinite amount of time, 'til I'm able to give it a chance.
Hopefully, it'll turn out to be good.
Or at least bearable.

* review update *
So, my OCD kind of pushed me to finish this, aaaaaand...
It doesn't get any better. Unfortunately. I guess it's just one of those "everyone likes it but me" things. And one of those "detached" things (yep, again).
I simply couldn't warm up toward characters. It didn't feel right. I have no idea what the point's suppose to be.
On the one hand, there are some rather unnecessary additions to the story that seemed kind of out of place here.
On the other hand, it seemed to me that this story has a hard enough time holding itself together without any additional elements to cause confusion.
What's the motivation?
Where are the emotions?
What moves these people?
I'm utterly confused, and left hanging with all the questions and no answers. None whatsoever.
Too bad.

~ Becs ~ What the heck is that guy wearing?????


Rain ~miss kinky knickers~ LOL! He's a pro football player (I'd say "rugby", but it's football in the USA right?). I suppose that's part of his... um... uniform?

~ Becs ~ Ah yes in america they call football soccer and rugby is football.

This is what rugby players look like in England

~ Becs ~ I think he'd make a good Hunter - might have to add him to that thread!

Rain ~miss kinky knickers~ Oh, he'd be a perfect Hunter. Great idea, Becs!


Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter This was a DNF. I liked the beginning and then the first sex scene??? Then somehow it went down the drain--pretty annoying.

Oh, that first sex scene, for some reason, made me think of Tate's “So my good girl’s gonna get dirty for me?”. Then I went ahead and re-read SD, so... it was all good. :)
Mercy Celeste is definitely not for me, though. I finished this, and I'm finished.

Actually, I thought that the first sex scene didn't fit. It was rather weird. Anyways, it's over. I didn't even rate the book. Just removed it.

Well, nothing, from that very first sex scene on, felt like it fit there, so... that says it all.
Hey, there are still a lot of good books out there. That's what matters! :)
