That's not me. If I have a Jordan Silver book in my Kindle laden hands, you wouldn't be able to pry that thing away from me with a crow bar.
This time though? *sigh*
It was boring, repetitive and way, WAY too angsty-y for my taste. For an author who claims not to like angst, this book was 90% stuffed with it.
Actually, if Jordan Silver's name hadn't been on the delicious looking book cover, I'd never had known it was her book.
Seriously, it isn't her style at all.
When I pick up her books I know I'm in for 3 things.
1: Hot and Heavy content
2. Delicious, crazy alpha males
3. A hold onto your panties, fast paced romance that makes your toes curl and time fly by.
We get none of that here.
I'm going to explain myself, so there will be SPOILERS!!......
Sure, Kyle is an alpha male, but then again he isn't. He spends the first half of the book angry at her because he blames her for his unexplainable attraction to her. He keeps asking himself, "Why?"
Why does he like her? She's obviously broken and he admits he has no interest in her story at all. He doesn't care what happened to her. He doesn't have time for all her baggage. He spends the first 50% of the book unsure about her.
He even has to call his Mother for her approval.
What?!? If a guy I was dating needed to do this, I'd be out the door in a flash.
Come on. You know we all would.
After mommy dearest gives him the "A-OK" (phew!, lucky Kerry!) He decides it's time to finally claim "what's kinda-sorta his"
But WAIT! *gasp!*
First he needs to show her what HORRIBLE people her ex and his new wife are!
(dun, dun, duuuun)
And how does he do this? By taking her to dinner and letting them spew nasty words all over her as she covers in fear in a booth.
Sure, he stands in front of her, but he LETS them say hurtful, ugly things. Never stops them, never interrupts them.
Why? Because apparently, she needed to hear all of this so she understands how horrible they really are.
Yeaaah..... because she didn't know this already?
Honestly, I hated that scene so much, I almost put my kindle down.
It's already taken me four days to get this far. This has NEVER happened to me in a Jordan Silver book before.
It's slow, boring, severely lacking in sex, which should be a crime, really. It took 60% for them to finally do the deed and by this time I had kinda written the book off.
C'mon! Don't judge me! It's a JS book. We're all here for the same reason.
In the beginning, my heart broke for Kerryanne. I felt pain for all she had been through. Jordan Silver did a great job in pulling on my heart strings. But she should have left it at that.
Instead,, she drags us through it over and over and over again, until it became way too much.
I know in a few of her other books, she's had a tendency to do this, but I didn't care. I LOVED the stories!
Here though, it's magnified ten-fold.
I recommend this book if you're looking for heartbreaking drama, a girl that finally (emphasis on finally) gets her revenge, and a longer JS book.
(But in all actuality, the book may have been longer than usual, but the story wasn't if you took away all of the respective information.)
I love Jordan Silver. I have every book she's ever written. She's my guilty pleasure. The author I turn to when I want a sure thing. But after Cord, and now this, I'm just not sure what's going on with her. I'm crossing my fingers that she'll move back to giving me awesome stories with drool-worthy alpha males that make my heart swoon.
Hope this helps!
Kerry was married to a manchild for 10 years, then dumped for her best freind and left her with nothing.She kept herself hidden away in her awful little apartment trying to get through the pain and misery. The pain that Kerry went through was intense and you felt that pain, just as Jordan intended.
Then Kerry bumps into Kyle on the street one day. Kyle hmm....all I can say is hot, Alpha male. He's angry and boy can you really get a sense of his anger.Just Wow!! At first there's anger about the way he feels around Kerry and not wanting to be tied down (knowing in his heart that,that is what's gonna happen). Then when he accepts his lot, he's angry at the way she was mistreated by the ex-husband and her ex-best freind...and a few of the towns people.... When I say angry, I mean PISSED!!! He is a true Alpha as is all of Jordans H's which I love. Audio loved Ms.Lucille, Gramps and the rest of the older crew. They were hilarious!!!
I'm going to close with saying Jordan is high on my list of 5 go to authors. I will always enjoy her writing....Jordan.....YOU ROCK!!!!
So at the beginning of the story, our h is almost completely broke and living in an unsafe neighborhood when she meets our H, Kyle. He's got muscles and tattoos so of course onlookers think he's a biker and poor. Turns out he's not poor by any stretch of the imagination, but that comes out a little later in the story, as usual.
The main reasons I was torn about the rating I gave are actually multiple. I like that the evil doers in the story actually got theirs for the horrible things they did to our h. I didn't like that our h thought so little of herself for way too long into the story. She wasn't completely TSTL but she definitely let herself get taken advantage of. And the worst part of it was that she actually blamed herself for what had happened. Is anyone really that insecure? She wasn't an abused woman who would have had reason to feel that lack of worth. That I could have understood. She was supposedly a good and sweet woman that everyone in town knew, so how on earth did she grow up with no idea of her worth? Sorry but I couldn't buy that part. It went on for way too long and became a bit unbelievable.
Anyway, other reasons for a 3 star are the usual with this author. Grammar, syntax etc. are really bad. I don't buy, I use KU. If she just used a proof reader I'd buy her books for keeps!
Finally, there were very few inconsistencies but the one I couldn't really figure out was the witch's friend's husband. The friend was Sarah and the husband was either Jeff or Jarvis. Jarvis was used the most but the author didn't seem to catch that particular issue. It's small but it threw me off and was annoying.
So I do like this author's book plots usually, but she really needs to get a decent editor/proof reader. Really.

It was sexy, romantic and of course, happily ever after! Loved Kyle and totally recommend this book!
