Read in June, 2009

Holy Mackerel, this was the WORST book I have EVER read. She uses the most disgustingly ridiculous similes I've ever read, and is so heavy-handed with them, I found myself laughing out loud at them while I read. It is a Christian Romance - not super religiously overtoned, but there is exactly ONE KISS (what kind of romance novel has one kiss???) and the characters were as flat as pancakes personality-wise. I'm pretty sure there was no plot. Just a lot of "I'm so hurt, I couldn't possibly love him again!" and "I hurt her so bad, she can't possibly love me again!" Perfectly ridiculous. It was free on the Kindle, and I still think I paid too much.

Morgana I'll be sure not to waste my time reading that one.
Thanks for the heads up.

Crystalstar Hall It wasn't completely horrible... Just take in to consideration it was in the 1880's and "proper" families didn't take PDA between people lightly. Even married couples kept it to a discreet minimum. :)

Michelle Robinson Lol I have read a few things like that where I felt even for free it wasn't worth the cost in patience and endurance. I have this book in my nook and I was becoming so frustrated with the pace (snails move faster), the continued reference to thier past pain ( can we see you deal with it and move past it)and the flat characters I came to Goodreads to what others thought of it.
