I read a review once that questioned what it was that makes the perfect romance novel. I think it's different for each reader. I think those who enjoy the writing style of "the book that will not be named" will love this one. This book has the Hero with a tortured past (explained in the prologue, for those who just graduated from pictures books.) And the sticky sweet bookish heroine, with the constant "subconscious in italics" that makes me want to throw my e-reader across the room. I really don't get this Bi-polar styler of writing, It doesn't endear me to the person. The constant yo-yo. "I'm telling him this, but I really think this." Why can't the writer save that for a later part of the scene? or just trust that we get it?
Maybe it's just my pet peeve.
There are some books that I don't love but manage to get through because there are other great qualities that hold the book together and then there are some books that...I can't... This one fell into the second category. I was really looking forward to this book but I just couldn't get into it
