did not like it
bookshelves: dnf, annoying-tstl-die-already-heroine

This comment by Being Human says it perfectly.
I couldn't finish this book because of the heroine, she was way too rude and demanding and ill-mannered and unpleasant and ungrateful for the likes of romantic heroines!

Amelia reminded me of Lydia from P&P: a complete idiot. It didn't take me long to come to that conclusion (first chapter did it) but I kept reading hoping she was really misunderstood. Alas, it was not to be. Amelia is really just a entitled twit who needs to buy a personality transplant.

Apparently Thomas ends up being a douchenozzle (new word of the day for me) later on in the book (according to some other reviews), but I didn't get that far since, Amelia was so toxic I had to stop reading otherwise my Nook was going to get some unwanted flying lessons.

Rachel (BAVR) You made a good choice to stop reading when you did. Lydia's annoying tendencies end up being FAR out-shined by Thomas the Douchenozzle. I got to the hate-sex portion of the book and then had to stop reading.
