The story started off okay. There was some snappy dialogue and a bit of sexual tension so I thought I might like it. Then the author started adding things that I thought was weird, the BDSM for one thing. It just didn’t fit for me. The hero is a priest who is into BDSM? Add to that the fact that he doesn’t really seem know anything about BDSM except to demand—and I use this word intentionally—that the heroine gives up all of her control. He wants to control all of her decisions and have her blindly submit to him, but she doesn’t even know him. That’s like going on a single date with a man—and I should add they haven’t even dated—and he wants to completely control you. I think most sane women would respond with a restraining order. He asked for too much too fast.
Besides the BDSM, I felt like the story had too many themes happening at once. My attention was so divided I just lost interest all together. Unfortunately, I will not be reading book 2.
Eve was whiny and weak-willed. Her internal monologue was repetitive and generally consisted of 'I want to submit, but I'm a modern woman and therefore shouldn't desire to submit, but I do.' Around and round she went. She had no backbone. Not because she wanted to submit to Michel, that's a valid life choice. But because she didn't even have the strength-of-will to make a decision. And since she couldn't remember what made her that way, it all felt hollow. How can the reader know Eve if Eve didn't know herself?
Michel was actually kind of cute in a damaged sort of way, but the whole Dominant/Submissive thing felt really, really forced. It didn't fit his personality. I understood what Lund was trying to set up, with his history and all, but the switch between normal, clingy, insecure Michel and dominant, demanding, master Michel was jarring and inconsistent. Plus, the whole insistence that Eve submit completely, in all things, made very little sense to me (and that's before I even get into the fact that they'd known each other for about a day when he started trying to demand this). As if there can't be a hierarchy of command between two people without one bending COMPLETELY to the will of the other. Hmm, makes me wonder about every soldier to ever obey his/her commanding officer. There could be an interesting M/M story in there somewhere.Read more ›
Things I hated...
The characters are pretty one dimensional. We're told about their many facets, but I didn't actually "see" any of them. I could fill in the blanks as all the characters are also archetypal bullet points, but that just reaffirms the point.
It's poorly edited. Descriptions of people change from chapter to chapter. Imagine if you read Harry Potter and his eyes changed from blue to brown all the time, but somehow no matter the color, they were still his mother's eyes? Would you be able to connect with that information? Would you care?
There's too much going on with poor explanations of the nuances so you don't know what is important, what isn't important nor where we're going with this and there are no resolutions. Sure, the story goes on, but people want some sort of pay off in the book they've already read that makes you want more. This it's just a serialized story.
Our main character is unlikable. She moves too quickly between emotions with little development as to how this works. I find it impossible to believe that you can start off desperate to kill vampires and in the span of about a week you don't care about school, you take on a job that makes no sense, fall in love and become a bit of a friend. And none of this explained well enough to be believable.Read more ›
I am finding this problem popping up more and more in the books I'm reading and it drives me CRAZY, because it is so illogical. If a sentence is correct when it says, James decided he would like to go to the store with me, why would adding any more people into the mix of who was going to the store, suddenly necessitate using the word I instead of me? It makes no sense, but authors continue to do it. You would not say James decided to go the the store with I (you would say me), soooo.... it is NOT correct to say James decided to go to the store with Sue and I. It is CORRECT to say James decided to go to the store with Sue and ME. No matter how many people you add into the mix, even if you list 200 people who are going to the store, the correct form is ME. This all has to do with Objective Case vs Subjective Case, but you don't need to understand all of that. All you need to do when you are choosing to use either the word I or me, is to leave all the other people out of the sentence and see if the word I or the word me sounds correct. Once you determine that, you can add all your other people to that correct form of the word and the sentence will be correct.Read more ›
