Kim Karr BRAVO!!!! this is going into my favorite lists on good reads and into my kindle also... i loved this book, NEVER PUT IT DOWN!! it was long, but I seriously did not even think about the time... I was so engrosed in this book, nothing else around me mattered... phone, cooking, cleaning, even sleeep.... whatever!!!
The book is basically about a family who believes they are destined to die at the young age of 27 years old... and there are only two people left, they are brother,sister and extremely close growing up and as they get older Z aka Zachery moves to Forida and Zoey lives in NY. Zoey is what Zack calls the 'good girl' he does everything for her, yet he is a hopeless romantic, artistic very creative.. lives a more lively lifestyle than Zoey.. she is scared, reserved works at her education in psychology and is trying to finish her phd. when she gets the news that her brother, Zack was speeding on his motorcycle and crashed... she receives a message from his bf, Nate. It takes Zoey several months to make it to Florida to handle her brothers affairs. She doesn't feel she was strong enough at the time.
Once she arrives and meets Nate, there is an attraction that Zoey has never felt before... she has always lived her life closed off and embrased her destiny....
this book is WILD!!! I DON'T WANT TO TELL ANYMORE, IT IS REALLY ONE OF THE KIND OF BOOKS THAT YOU REALLY MUST GO INTO NOT KNOWING TOO MUCH ABOUT IT, BECAUSE ONE 'SPOILER' COULD REALLY RUIN THE "RUSH" ONE GETS WHEN READING THIS BOOK!
SO ALL I CAN SAY, THIS BOOK IS THRILLING, EXCITING, MAJOR STEAMY SEX SCENES, MIND BLOWING !! you really must read the book - I loved all the characters in this book as well... I even hate to tell you more about them, because some you don't even know about until about 70% into the book....
enough said.. GO GET IT NOW, OR HIT AMAZON KINDLE, NOOK, ECT... YOU WILL NOT REGRET!!!!!
So the title alone caused me to take another look. And the premise of the novel convinced me to buy it: what if this curse was bestowed upon your own family?
Though we start out in Zach's head, we quickly find out that his sister is really the main character. And what a ride Zoey takes, with Zach's best friend Nate along in the passenger seat. Zoey's frozen in fear, as she's just turned 27 and is convinced that she will die within the next year.
What follows is her struggle to make peace with her supposed destiny. As such, she makes a list of things that she wants to experience.
And here is my issue with the book and why I can't give it 5 stars. Apparently, Zoey's overriding desire is to recreate every scene in every BDSM book known to man. Not to know true love with another person, or to wake up in the arms of someone you can't imagine living without, or even to freeze her eggs for the love of her life to be able to carry on her legacy without her. She just wants kinky sex.
I am all for one or two hotter than hot sex scenes in a book, but this was ridiculous. I did not care that she had 20 orgasms in one day. I did not want to read about her having sex, or wanting to, in every single chapter. I felt like the author had someone whispering in her ear to add more sex because it would generate more sales. Towards the end, when Zoey would speak about her encounters, I would start skimming.
But also toward the end was a reminder of the beautifully touching story this could have been if the smut had been reduced. And it was then that I cried. It doesn't happen often, and usually results in an automatic 5 star from me, but unfortunately not here.
I love romance. I love a fair amount of erotica too. But when it overshadows a poignant storyline, it's a disappointment. This could have been an absolutely brilliant novel, but it ended up being only very good.
