First, I want to say this author is funnier than Alice Clayton. Seriously. If you are looking for some humor, this is definitely a book you should consider, even though I had some issues with the heroine.
To be honest, she was an immature, bratty 6th grader. At one point I was like, "girl you need to go grow up. Not get in a relationship."
I loved her through the first 50 percent and then bang. She lost me caring about her. She was so incredibly immature. She called them her 'insecurities' and it was so frustrating. We have an amazing hero, and the heroine literally gets mad at him about five times for just talking to another girl. It was annoying, and I was getting fed up with her.
Maybe it sounds like I'm ranting now. But really, I'm angry at the heroine because I was so consumed in their story. If I didn't care, I would of put it down and not picked it back up. But instead, I was like, "Why are you being an idiot? Omg. You're an idiot." Get what I mean? Idk.
But they had some incredible tension, which unfortunately was relieved with the fade to black scenes. It was disappointing since the dialogue, and other content makes this feel like a New Adult.
The heroine is a slut shamer. But for whatever reason, it only came off funny in this book than her actually being judgemental. So you'll have to take it as you will. There was also an abundance of 'mean' girls. Where they are all over the hero and the heroine's 'insecurities' are coming out. I don't know. But that cliche is definitely over-done in the YA and NA genres. Almost to the point of pain.
I feel like this is a great YA novel compared to the rest of stuff out there. And a teenager might not have the same problems with the heroine that I did. This would have at least been a 4.5 star read for me. If the heroine didn't make me want to stab my eyeball with a fork. Twice.
And that ending, though.
It was eye-rolly all over the place, but to be honest I did not see that one coming. So I guess props to the author for that.
Overall, a funny, romantic novel that I would recommend to young adults.
The story is about a seventeen year old teen girl Violet, who took on her mothers cancer, bills, school, and a horrendous boyfriend situation only to stumble into the most gorgeous man at her worst moment. Her and her mother have an extremely strong and close relationship, and when her mother tell her she is getting married, she is thrilled for her. Everything is about to change for them, the fiancee is extremely rich so they will not have money issues anymore. He also has a son, Zane, and yes, he is the one that saw her at her worst and is jaw dropping drool worthy handsome. This is the beginning on the funniest scene I've read of hoof in mouth disease. I'm not telling you anymore, it would ruin the ride.
The only negative thing I can say about the book is Violet's immature actions, and attitude get on my nerves a bit but it was an accurate example of teen coming into adulthood issues.
What surprise, I found in this kindle freebie, lost and forgotten on my shelf. I loved the humor, had the best laugh at this mother daughter hoof in mouth experts duo.
Read it, it's romantic, funny and unrealistic, which is prefect.
I’ll start with the writing. It had this weird.. vibe to it (I’m really at a loss for words how to describe it). Like I was reading this girls diary vs living out the events with her. Considering that this wasn’t the intention, it didn’t work. It’s very bland and underdeveloped. It was choppy and lacked even a decent flow– it was just all over the place. To put it straight, it felt like the VERY first draft. Not only was I laughing at the funny parts, I was also laughing at the unbelievably ridiculous things that came about randomly and others that left a bad taste in my mouth. Violet being a best-selling author (to pay for her Mom’s medical bills) and her,”Yeah, no big deal I’m just a bad ass” attitude. The whole situation with her best friend and the relationship with her teacher. The fact that Zane’s “secret” was so unrealistic. The plot holes were so big it was unreal.
Violet is probably one of my least favorite protagonist, ever. For one, she is very immature and judgemental. Everyone was a slut, or a ho or a whore. Let me take a minute to point out that the one person that could be considered a “slut”, was Zane. For the first week she stayed with him, he had a different girl/woman over every night. Did this thought cross her mind? Nope. I guess a “hot body” gives him a pass. She was a horrible friend. Sure, she gave her a car at the end but what about all that drama in between? She was so selfish and obsessed with her “relationship” with Zane, she couldn’t see what was happening with her best friend. Speaking of; the “romance” was boring. I will admit, I did kind of like their banter in the beginning (VERY beginning) but once the feelings came into play, I just couldn’t give a rats ass. It’s always hard for me to believe that a guy that has a different woman over every night just gives that up for the girl. (Especially Violet). Did those women not know who he was, either?! I mean, let’s be real here.
The ending was… sad. Not boo-hoo sad, but “I didn’t think things could possible get worse” sad. My eyes were hurting from all the rolling. Honestly, I could go on and on about all the reasons why this book didn’t work and all the things that were NOT OKAY. But I wont.
My Peeve~ I’m sure you could guess, but if not… pretty much the whole thing. The only reason why I didn’t mark as DNF is because I needed a good laugh.
Overall~ I didn’t like it. I wish I hadn’t put this one on the poll and damn sure wish I hadn’t “purchased” it. Thank goodness it was free. Sure, I was entertained by the humor and ridiculousness but this just proves that– Some books are great; some books are good.. and some books are… not.
