I wanted to love Avoiding Commitment, and I think I expected to love it because of all the rave reviews. Unfortunately, I hated it.

Oddly enough, I started out enjoying the book. I expected some incredible romance, a bit of drama, maybe a bit of cheating--but if done well, I knew I could handle it. What I got was:

* Lexi cheating on her boyfriends to be with Jack.
* Jack cheating on his girlfriends to be with Lexi.
* A book that spans six years. Six years. Seriously, this book was way too long. Apparently it's 350 pages, but it felt like a 500 page book.
* More cheating.
* Horrible breakups because of said cheating.
* Flashbacks that show all the times Lexi got hurt by Jack.
* Then Jack cheats on Lexi and she can't believe it. So it's okay for her to cheat on her boyfriends but heaven forbid it happens to her?
* etc. etc.

Most of my problems with this book just boil down to the fact that Jack is a complete and utter jerk with no respect for relationships (hence the book title), and Lexi stupidly thinking that Jack truly loves her and wants to commit to being in a relationship with her. Jack continuously hurts her and disappoints her over the span of six years, but she still doesn't realize that he's a jerk. He won't commit to her. He'll cheat on her. She'll always be the "other woman." But she doesn't understand that, and keeps throwing herself into his arms anyway, and crying when he disappoints her. So at the end of the day, I just had no sympathy for her. She brought it all on herself.

Lexi keeps saying she's in love with Jack, but my question is: why? All we learn about Jack is:

He's hot.

He's a jerk.

So why does she love him? All I see in their relationship is lust.

I'm more than a little confused about all of the positive reviews this book seems to have received. It is quite honestly one of the worst books I've read in this genre. The entire plot is pretty unbelievable and just gets more and more absurd with each new twist. The "heroine" of the book is astoundingly unlikeable- she is stupid, naive, has zero self-respect, and is also oddly judgmental and prejudiced against entire groups of people. There are parts in the book where sexual assault is made light of, the main guy in the book is the worst human being I have encountered in the romance genre. To top it all off, the ending was extremely unsatisfying. The only reason I kept going with the book was that I was hoping for a real turn-about at the end, and it never happened. I wish I could give this book zero stars.

Avoiding Commitment has taken my book slump and crushed it beneath its mind shattering awesomeness. Where do I start? Where do I finish? What the hell can I say that's not a four-letter word?!

I feel so used! I feel so abused! I feel so awesomely turned on! There's such a fine line between love and hate. Avoiding Commitment totally gets rid of the line and has one big love/hate orgy. There wasn't a character I didn't want to punch in the face! Everyone drove me insane, but holy hot hell commit me because I'd pay money for this type of insanity.

I love that I read this book; I hate that I read this book. I was pulled in every emotional direction possible throughout the course of Lexi and Jack's relationship! I will never look at a wall the same way again. In fact, wall...I revere you!

I've been totally beaten and ravaged with the frustration stick and all I can think to do is bend over and let it hit me again. This is a book that will make you feel everything at once. The only reason I didn't give it five-stars was because it did have a few draggy bits and maybe I was forced to skim a little (insert audible gasp here), but then Jack would throw Lexi (me) up against a wall and all would be forgiven!

Read it, devour it, strap yourself in for a crazy ride that will leave you gasping and begging for more. READ ON! READ IT NOW!

This book is so full of gut wrenching emotional drama and angst, I loved it! Lexi and Jack's story is intense, and I had so many conflicting emotions throughout their story. Lexi and Jack have a dysfunctional relationship from the beginning, but they have this undeniable pull to each other. Lexi has not seen or spoken to Jack in 2 years, when she receives and unexpected call from him, with an interesting request. In Avoiding Commitment you follow Lexi as she relives her past with Jack, and experience the present where upon Jack's request she attempts to convince his new girlfriend he is finally ready to commit. I loved Lexi, she reminded me a lot of Olivia from The Opportunist, in that she was flawed but ultimately very likable, at least in my opinion. Now Jack, I still do not know how I feel about him, I kept waiting for him to redeem himself and at times really struggled to understand him and his feeling for Lexi. I think maybe he was afraid to be with someone who really knew him, flaws and all, he could not pretend with Lexi they were intense, raw and all emotion. I also think he knew if they really tried to be together, he would eventually do irreparable damage to her, and did not want to lose the security of knowing she was always an option. The ending though, oh my, there are no words for what I am feeling! The secondary characters are great too, loved Chyna and Ramsey and HATED Bekah. I was heartbroken, angry, happy, shocked, excited, to name a few of the emotions this book elicited. This is one of those stories that will be thinking about long after you finish reading.
