bookshelves: 2009, ya

This book was recommended to me and therefore I was very surprised that it wasn't very good. I don't care about the explicit nature of it. In fact, sex scenes were the only ones that kept me remotely interested in the story. Book just wasn't written that well. Language was overly simplistic, there was no depth to the story. Even at 17 there is more to a teenager's emotions than: I like the guy, he is nice, I want to have sex with him, I love him, etc. Plus, the relationship described fell flat, too. There was nothing to it, no love, no infatuation, just sex.

message 3: by Ivy (new) - rated it 3 stars

Ivy I agree with you. The girl had no depth and she wasn't ready for any kind of a relationship. They spent most of their time trying to find different places to have sex. This couple has to be the most shallow teenagers I have ever read about. I almost laughed when her "boyfriend" actually felt betrayed that she wanted to move on. Give me a break. My old teen romances had more depth than this stinker.

Shalom I totally agree with you Tatiana. Succinct yet brilliant review.

Nicky Lamond Agree. We never really found out what it was that she actually liked about Michael and the dialogue seemed a bit flat and lifeless.
