I downloaded this book as I read and enjoyed Preservation, and as it was a freebie what was there to lose. I know what I lost and it was patience. I know that angst filled romances are popular and that complications always occur in contemporary romance, but this story has enough for several novels. There were just so many complications that the drama became too much for me. There was just complication after complication after complication, leading to more angst on top of more angst. The actual time Jackson and Emma were actually together and happy was such a small part of the book that I never felt like I got respite from the angst. I'm not joking about that either, they were only together and happy for about 15% of the book, in the middle.

I also have to say I had issues with both Emma and Jackson. Let's start with Jackson. Jackson is a bad boy sleep with anything who makes Travis Maddox (Beautiful Disaster) look like a saint. He is such a jerk at numerous points throughout the book that I found it impossible to like him a lot of the time. But then the he could be super sweet. But my biggest issue, for those of you who don't like it when the Hero can't keep it in his pants you will hate Jackson. Jackson declares his undying love for Emma, saying he has been in love with her for 3 years. Emma doesn't know what to make of this and asks for time. Two weeks later he is banging another girl because (his reason when she finds out)' I didn't think you wanted me'. Two weeks. Come on. Some undying love.

And this is where I have issues with Emma. Emma accepts this way too easily. She is at times a doormat to him, and yet at other times is super strong, and tells it like it is.

I laughed. I cried. I read until I needed toothpicks to keep my eyes open! In short, Love and Relativity made my very short "epic love story" list. But in more depth:

"There's nothing left of me, because you have it all. You were right. I am no good for you--not now, and not in the future."

That. Right there. And so much more is why Love and Relativity is currently my favorite Rachael Wade novel, and probably one of my favorite reads this year.

Jackson is totally bad-boy-with-a-good-heart yummy. He tries his hardest to stay away from Emma, to do what's right by her. He wants more for her than him, but their love is fueled by sheer magnetism and Jackson isn't the bad boy he thinks he is. He's caged himself in, simply put up walls because of the things he's been through, which really just makes him all the more desirable in the end.

Emma is struggling with her own issues: an ex-boyfriend that hurt her at the worst time possible, her own walls and inhibitions, the grief and loss of her sister and the secret that binds her and Jackson together - the one thing that tells her that there's more to Jackson than meets the eye. But figuring it all out is easier said than done.

Be prepared for some serious swooning and steamy scenes. And don't be surprised if you spend half the book wanting to ring either Jackson's or Emma's necks because we, the readers, can see they are perfect for each other but one or the other seems to think that they're better off sabotaging the entire thing.

My favorite character from Preservation also plays a pretty big role in Love and Relativity. I got to know him better and I got to see him happy, which I totally loved. He's the sweet, pure hearted guy who most girls overlook because he lacks that bad boy edge.

Where do I sign up??? I want a guy who sleeps around with anything that moves but really is in love with me. Then he is manipulating, controlling and evasive. Could he please take what I want and am thinking out of the equation and decide what's best for me and our relationship? Great! How about playing mind games and being a bit too sexually forward? Check! *sigh*

If you want an intelligent book written by an intelligent woman about intelligent women I suggest picking up a Jenny Crusie. One of her characters would have pushed Jackson off the dock and gone to found someone worth while.

Please find the review by Book Worm posted January 29, 2013. I totally agree.

Initially, I was going to just leave a comment on that review, but I felt that I needed to add a starred review to counter some of the irrational 5-star reviews that brought me to this book.

I find it depressing that the main characters are all so uninspiring. Highlight of their week is getting drunk at Pete's on Friday night. They all have menial jobs. Emma is an aid at a nursing home. Whitney is a hotel maid. Jackson is a part time hanger-on at a marina. Small-town small-people with low ambitions trapped and going nowhere. Even Emma, who is at least going to a local Jr. College, who at least is voicing intentions of "Getting off the Island", is showing by her actions that she is doing little more than dreaming, and I have no great expectation that she will ever break free. Jackson is totally uninspiring. A handsome local bad-boy to whom Emma is drawn has nothing to offer but poverty, fist-fights, misguided cock-sure posturing, and getting drunk. Is this someone you'd want your daughter to interact with? Shudder. Emma is briefly attracted to a new guy at Pete's... "He was thin instead of built like a linebacker, but his geek glasses and tattoo-covered arms were pretty damn sexy." Oh, come on Emma. Quit digging.

I'm sure that there are many people who live like this. I just don't need to read about it. I am at 41% and I'm going to bail. The second half may get better, but I won't be there to find out.

Randy
