Oh I so WANTED to like this book. That being said, I didn't, I couldn't. And yet I couldn't stop reading it...it was like watching a car crash, I just couldn't look away.

The first third of the book, I spent half of my time being jarred out of the story by the strange lack of contractions. The book is written in first person POV and even the inner dialogue was strangely bereft of contractions. How many people sound so utterly formal all the time, not only when speaking, but also when thinking?

Speaking of POV, the entire book is from Ellery's POV, except for one strange, short chapter written from Connor's POV. We learn nothing about his motivations or his inner self and it seems to serve no purpose in the story arc.

Every time they have a fight it turns into the sacking of Carthage, including the razing of the city and the salting of the earth. No small disagreements, just global thermonuclear war followed by one or both of them leaving. And then with very little growth or development, magically they get back together and are having sex.

And speaking of the sex, this was a very un-erotic book of erotica. The following excerpts are from a single two-page section:

********

He gently inserted his finger in me and feeling the wetness before inserting another. I gasped at the pleasure and arched my back for him to go deeper. His tongue ran circles around my swollen area forcing me to release my pleasure to him

********

He sat up and moved fluently in and out of me. He reached his hands around and grabbed my breasts, squeezing them and pinching each nipple before moving his hand down and rubbing my aching spot.

I really wanted to love this but it just didn't work for me.

It's a story we've all heard pretty much many times before - it does have a few unusual twists and turns which should help it stand out but sadly, there's also a whole lot wrong with this.

Firstly, the way the characters behave - really quite brattish and inexplicable behavior. Also the editing is shocking. At one point the characters delcare their love for one another. It's a pivotal moment, really important to the story and they say "I love you to." REALLY - that should be TOO. There's a whole heck of a lot of this going on - to and too, your and you're.

Just OK, not great.

The first few chapters of this book had me hooked. Unfortunately the rest of the book was all over the place. At the beginning of the book the heroine, Ellery, was funny, cute, caring, and friendly, and I definitely understand why Connor, the leading man, would fall for her. All of a sudden she turns into an angry, jealous, and bitter psycho. I felt like I was reading a different book. This book had potential, but half way through I was berating myself for having wasted my time and money.

This book is the epitome of why people frown on self pubs sometimes. It's so bad. It's 100% crystal clear this book had no editing. It was written super fast and pastes together and slapped with a price tag. Shame!

Awful grammar. The writing out of numbers like crazy under 10? Who starts a sentence "2 minutes until we leave so hurry up" that's an example but still that's what this story is chock full of. That's basic grammar 101. You spell out numbers under 10. Wikipedia can tell you that and it's quick. It's "Two" minutes. All sentences that begin with numbers are spelled out regardless of the rules. That's elementary basic everyone knows this. Come on Ms. Lynn! There's absolutely no excuse for something that basic. There's at least 10 sentences that start with numbers under 8. Come on!

Too much naming. You're so silly Connor Black. You are amazing Ellery Lane. These two are obsessed with their full names. Enough Ms. Lynn. We get it. His name is Connor Black and her's is Ellery Lane. Unless someone's mad at another person no one uses a full name. Parents do when their kids are in trouble, spouses/SO's and such do. Not in regular conversation. So where shall we go today Ellery Lane? I don't know Connor Black.

Give me a break. The eyes can only roll so much. I was honestly afraid my would literally roll out of their sockets.

It's so bad. It needs SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much editing. I feel pins and needles cringing over how awful the grammar was. A few things can be overlooked if the story is good enough but all the Ellery Lane, Connor Black, OMG from Ellery's best friend. Literally OMG was all over the place isn't enough to overlook the dreadful grammar.

For $3.99 that's highway robbery and then some.

I don't even know where to begin with this one.

I guess the worst thing in this book was the dialogue. It was so stilted and robotic that nearly every page made me cringe. It's nearly impossible to get any feeling toward the characters because of the awkward way they talk. But the rest of the writing wasn't really any better. The heroine was dying for pete's sake - that should have been an emotional read - but it just fell so flat. There were also quite a few grammar errors.

The storyline was ok. The young billionaire who is a jerk to women tripe is getting a little tired... but whatever. At least there wasn't a cliffhanger. (Not that I would read a sequel)
