did not like it

Now let's be honest here....

I read a lot of books. And every so often you find a book that just stuns you. And not in a good way.

This book feels like it is written by a kid in high school. The author clearly has no idea about how things are in college vs high school. The main character Emma talks about getting high and drunk far too much and generally behaves like a stroppy teenager. Mr Honor seems to be a direct parody of Christian Grey - if I was E L James I would be seriously pissed off with this author!!! Let's recap- they are both rich beyond measure, they are both controlling and into relatively tame BDSM, they both have barriers up until they meet the right woman when they start going on about how much they love them. They both take their partners virginity, they both use GPS to track their partner, they both have a playroom in their house. I mean C'MON!!! If you're gonna write something can you please try to be original!!!

All of this I could have overlooked- except for the fact that it sounds like it has been written by a kid who is failing English. The sentences are clunky, the grammar is off and the dialogue is cringe worthy. I have read some books that clearly need more editing (FSOG anyone?) but this is ludicrous!! If this is the standard of book that can hold a decent rating in this genre then i'm off to throw down some words on a page and make me some money!!!

Just abysmal.
