I wasn't going to give a review to this book, if it had gotten better, but it was stale and boring most of the way through.
I am usually suspect about a book when there are a lot of reviews and almost all the reviews are 5's. It often means that it is a "friendly" audience. However, I thought when selecting the book, that I would read it - it looked okay on "paper" as to the description. So, I read through half of the book and had to put it down. I usually read a book pretty quickly, but I was down to reading half the chapter and then putting it down for something else.
Like "paint by the numbers", this is how the book was - it was like "write by the numbers". It had the ingredients, but there was no life and definitely no romance. Just because you say a sexual term, doesn't mean it makes the book romantic. I felt like the characters were discussing a scientific project, with some Home Ec and sex education thrown in.
Where was the emotion, the connection? It was just too dry.
