If I could sum up this novel best, nothing really happens and maybe that is the biggest issue I had with it. Don't get me wrong, I can understand all the accolades this book is getting and fair play to the author because she has written an amazing love story. I will eventually finish it but I just became a bit put off by the redundancy of it all. This novel could have easily had about a fourth of its content shaved off and been just as good.
Like another reviewer, I couldn't bond with Joss and I didn't really get that much out of Braden either. I don't know if he was supposed to have a bad boy quality because it was all a bit predictable. Multi-millionaire guy who loves to date blondes finds a woman with dirty blonde hair he is so attracted to, he can let go of all the other money grubbers in his life. Well, Joss is independently wealthy (due to an accident that is best found out when one reads the book) and she has the world on her shoulders. She's outwardly cold but extremely vulnerable and THAT is why Braden was attracted to her from the beginning and never let go. There is something about a vulnerable woman that will get a guy every time and her sincerity didn't hurt her either. She was real so I can understand why he would go through all the effort he did to get with her.
This novel's biggest short coming had nothing to do with the book and everything to do with ME.Read more ›
Was it sexy? Sure.
Was it well written? Not so much. There/they're problems. Passed/past confusion. Commas all over the place and not where needed.
Now, I read and enjoy many books wherein the editing could be stronger, but when I'm not engrossed in a story that's when the errors start flying off the pages at me, so I would guess a lot of people who loved this book probably were able to ignore those issues.
I guess ultimately the pacing of this book is what blew it for me. I thought Joss's emotional stasis was drawn out way too long, especially since she was cognizant of it and seeing a therapist about it. It just made me frustrated with her and consequently totally unable to understand why Braden hung on for so long. It's not a good sign in a romance novel when you're hoping the hero dumps the heroine and finds someone better!
Other issues that kept me from giving this 4 stars instead of 3? The whole misunderstanding with the new club manager? That was so juvenile and OTT. Also, the way Joss could accept that she could love Ellie as a friend, but not accept that she could love Braden as a boyfriend? It seemed so unreal.
I think if they could have had more than just a few pages of happy together at the end to lend some balance to all the angsty crazypants stuff that came before? Maybe that would have helped.
Lastly that epilogue was pure dreck IMO. Pure and utter schmaltz.
Jocelyn Butler has learn to keep herself at a distance, loving people hurts, especially when she seems to be a bad luck charm for those around her. But after moving into a new flat it becomes increasingly difficult for Jocelyn to keep her distance not only from her bubbly and friendly new room mate Ellie but also from Ellie's hot older brother Braden who seems to be doing his best to get over her defenses and into her knickers...
I decided to give this book a try for two reasons, reason number one, all the good reviews I had seen; reason number two, I really liked the cover! I have come to the conclusion I may need new friends and that I am a cover whore! Okay so I may be exaggerating about the new friends thing, I didn't think it was awful, but after all the fabulous reviews I was expecting something to blow me away, I am feeling distinctly unblown. In my opinion it isn't that much different from other things I have read and doesn't stand out from the crowd.
Another point I had trouble with was the heroine, Joss, I just didn't connect with her at all, on an intellectual level I understood and sympathized with her predicaments but emotionally she didn't resonate with me at all. Braden was hot and I liked his determination to win over Joss, but I wasn't really wowed by him either.
So you are probably wondering when I will stop whinging about this book, after all I gave it three feathers not one or two! What I did like about this book was how hot it was, Braden and Joss may have had no chemistry with me, but with each other they were off the charts and I do love a man who talks dirty!Read more ›
