I adored Gin. She’s got a sharp tongue, a foul mouth, and a raging libido. She doesn’t tolerate tardiness from her dates and she loathes women who play games. Taken at face value, this acerbic ice-queen isn’t the most likeable of main characters. Stick with her! Underneath all the four-letter words and tough posturing is a sentimental young woman who is looking for the same true love she saw between her grandparents.
Carmen is a player and the first person to admit it. She is a stunning butch who the women flock to and Carmen happily takes them to bed, letting them know it’s a one-time shot with no strings attached. Carmen keeps her life tidy by adhering to her priorities. When Gin brushes her off like a piece of lint Carmen’s ego is bruised for the first time and she is left reeling. Carmen is just as resolute as Gin so watching her try and figure out how she can have her career and win Gin’s affections kept me invested in this battle of wills.
The dialogue in this story was the highlight for me. It brings the characters to life and it is amusing, sharp, and at times unbelievably coarse. Most notably, Gin delivers hilarious and colorful commentaries at machine gun speed. Nobody is safe from her sarcasm and I couldn’t get enough of it. It’s a wonderful smokescreen to protect her fragile heat.
I thought this book was so much fun. I love bold women who own their sexuality and Gin and Carmen do more than own it. They revel in it. I read it in one sitting with a smile on my face the whole time. I like to mix up what I read. If I’ve just read a book that has taken me on a profound, emotional journey, I need something playful to balance it out. Breaking the Rules is a sexy and amusing read that was exactly what I was looking for.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
BUT, there are a lot of things that this book is not. You're definetly not getting an in-depth story that is well thought out with tons of details. Examples: No family on either side of Gin and Carmen appear. That partially makes sense for Gin, but not at all for Carmen. What town did this take place? Seemed like a small town, but there are so many lesbians that Gin can go on 20 plus dates and still not run out of woman? There are a lot more of these instances but I don't want to give too much away.
Side note to the author: This is a book where it would have been lovely to have an epilogue. You can't end it like that and not give the reader a make-up section. That's the gravy, or cherry on top, or whatever you want to call it! Give us the after sex cigarette.
Overall it was fun to read but not anything that's going to keep you thinking about it afterwards. But hey, sometimes there's nothing wrong with that!
Gin was glaring at her computer, she had to write yet another article about her latest date. Gin was not a writer. As far as Gin was concerned her last date was a waste of time. She didn't want to be nice about the date. Cynthia had said she wanted something fresh. Something out of character for a dying column.
Yet every word, every sentence, every paragraph was ripped apart by Patricia then sent back to Gin to revise and send back a second time. Her desire to keep her grandfather’s dream alive- the gas station- was the only reason Gin had agreed to do these articles. She agreed to one article a week for 26 weeks. The little paycheck she got from this was the only thing that mattered.
I couldn’t get into this book. First off i think i chose this one on accident as i don’t enjoy M/M or F/F just not my thing, Bit also this didn’t keep my attention with the whole plot. I am sure others will love this just not for me.I wouldn’t have rated this if zI could have got away with it but you have to rate to submit a review.
