First let me say that yes i guess the book could be considered entertaining & i didnt find it to have tons of errors like many do, BUT..
OMFG! I have NEVER been so disgusted by the STUPIDITY of an heroine in my life! Seriously im def not understanding how so many women LOVED this book! I read for fantasy not to read about a weak pitiful girl who follows a guy around begging for any scrap compliment he'll give!
Wow! Sorry author but i can def tell you are a man! Lets just name a few examples or how pathetic this chick is, shall we?!
1. She walks in on him having sex with another chick & basically appologizes to HIM, then a couple hoyrs later is BEGGING him to kiss her!
2. He bails on her for ANY other chick!
3. She actually for ONCE flirts with another guy & said guy asks her out, well "Adonis" (gag btw) gets jealous & pulls her away & does she say oh hell no im goin ur gonna see how this feels? NOPE, she goes with him!
4. She follows him around like a lost puppy with hearts & stars in her eyes begging for any compliment or attention he'll give!
5. Shes constantly begging him to kiss her, be with her, do with her what he does with other women( i mean REALLY? COME ON)
Its literally the most disgusting thing ive ever witnessed! Sorry not my idea of a fantasy! Its sad really, this poor chick will very ibviously be married & raising 30 of her husbands girlfriends kids & her excuse will be "oh he said it was an accident."
Bottom line i dont think ill be reading 2 & 3, sorry! Not a bad writer but def not my cup of tea! :/
A lot of what I have read is saying that they didn't like Samantha. That she was too immature and clingy. But, to ME, that's the whole point of the story. *I*, for one, know that when I was at that age, I was probably jealous and clingy. I think a lot of girls go through that before becoming women. ESPECIALLY girls who are emotionally scarred from their past. I think Samantha's behavior was pretty normal, considering.
As for the book (or books, since there are multiple) I really enjoy them. I can't really say much without giving the story away, but I somewhat feel that maybe if it wasn't a guy writing it, it might have been given better reviews. I think we just hate that men aren't like they are in our books, so why not take it out on a man who writes one?? Hehe!!!
After reading the book description, I immediately related to her. I was that girl who majored in Accounting because it was the safe thing to do, but also took Art classes as an elective. What if I had chosen another path? Would my life have been similar to that of Samantha Smith?
I was curious enough to read the book and find out. Like Samantha, I took Life Drawing and the model that posed nude in our class bore no resemblance to the “tattoo-clad bad boy” on the cover. If the handsome bad-boy had made an appearance, maybe I would’ve stuck with it.
All this to say Devon Hartford described a character I could relate to. I understood that yearning, the desire to be true to myself. That is what initially had me reading the story, but that’s where the similarities ended.
There were times when I couldn’t understand Samantha’s actions. I wanted to grab her by the shoulders and shake her. The bad boy was such a narcissistic, male chauvinist pig that I was sure he had chosen the name Adonis himself. He really turned me off at first, and I couldn’t understand why Samantha was still attracted to him. A handsome face and nice body can only get you so far. There were times when the character’s actions just didn’t seem to fit.
But, as the story progressed, more was revealed about them. A person isn’t always what they appear to be on the surface. A tortured past wreaks havoc on the human psyche. Thankfully, Adonis became known as Christos, a name and character that was more palatable to me (that’s what’s known as character arc). I was intrigued enough to keep reading, and enjoyed the story overall.
