I'm really not sure what annoyed me more about this book. Well I had a list of things but everything seems so vague now. Evidently the biggest flaw is how boring it was.

No no I remember! It's the girl. The girl is the most annoying part. She's very idiotic. And yet also very turned on. By men.

If she mentioned how big Jeck's shoulders were one more time. Like I do not need to be reminded of that shit. I got it. Oh but here we go about how broad his scarred up back is...well oh gee golly get your skirts up girl and just launch yourself at him.

That would be better than pretending to be this great warrior princess with throwing darts and all this hidden agenda training.

She puts her darts in her bun guys, and let me tell you, she loves the idea of it. If the words "checking my top knot for my darts" were mentioned one more flipping time. I mean one more time. I would have burnt this sucker.

I could see myself liking this when I was 13, because of the cheese factor. But not now. I am older and wiser and see through that romantic crap. Give me a good story with an intelligent protagonist and a worthwhile plot. That is all I require. Oh and a love story, but a complex one :D

Fayley "Give me a good story with an intelligent protagonist and a worthwhile plot. That is all I require. Oh and a love story, but a complex one" - could not agree with you more. That's exactly what I want too!
