All around disappointment,
This review is from: Smart Girls Think Twice (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
I picked up this book because I always enjoy the premise of the hero or heroine returning to their small home town. Add to that a bad-boy-meets-smart-girl theme and I'm sold. Unfortunately, this book was an all around disappointment. It was badly written and even more poorly edited. The conversations were banal, the descriptions were often repetitive, there were a whole bunch of things that I assume were "padding" cause they were irrelevant to the story, there was no sense of resolution of the hero's issues and nowhere do we get a sense of why these two people belong together. In fact, there is a big fight/separation near the end and my only reaction was supreme indifference -- I even thought that a final split would be the right solution. I certainly wan't wondering or worrying about how they were going to get back together... There was just no way I could believe these two people cared about each other or that they even were really physically attracted to one another; and the sex seemed pro forma. Finally, last but by no means least: the other characters were almost all annoying -- specially the heroine's mother. I think I read the first two books in this series (I've forgotten) but in this one both sisters were irritating and seemed made of cardboard. In all, this was a really bad book. Save your money for something else.
