There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Thankfully this 3-box set was free! I finished the set through sheer determination and A LOT of skimming. Something of a cliffhanger, but unless I find the next book free and my bookshelf otherwise empty, I'll pass.
I should have stopped after book one, which ended up semi HEA, after an extremely abrupt, but finally got back together ending. From reading the reviews for the rest of the books, (thru #51), there are a lot of cliffhangers. I know that in the 1-3 box set there are definitely cliffhangers. Not acceptable for the author to not explain this. From what I've read of the reviews, the stories keep getting shorter and shorter as well. I have to say that the only reason I read the rest of the box set is because I was so appalled at the characters' behavior, and the disbelief that people might actually act that way, that I had to see if that got any better.
This probably bothered me more than anything else. Cayson, who was supposed to be the best out of all the guys, used a girl until the one he really wanted became available. Then he immediately dumped her. SO not acceptable. Then C gets upset with his girlfriend's brother when the other guy has a night with his ex. He acted like he was jealous and cared way too much for someone he just used. Although I think upset is too mild a word. He was more like highly irrational. Way too much emotion for the supposedly (on his part) mean nothing relationship. And then he was ready to break up with his girlfriend over her being bothered about his insane behavior? He was more than willing to throw away his girlfriend and a lifelong friendship over someone he supposedly didn't love? No. What sane person would act that way?
Skye annoyed me as well. She knows she has to be careful trusting people because of her father's money, but she isn't careful, and she gets fooled until someone tells her what's going on. The guy keeps bothering her off and on, (which was dragged out and not resolved over the three books I read.) But she's so arrogant that she thinks she can handle anything, even a man that weighs twice as much as her. I can't stand arrogant stupidity in any character, so this really bothered me. In regards to C, she didn't know she loved him until he had given up on her and was with someone else. Trite. Plus, not only did he say unforgivable things to her after the insanity with her brother, she took him right back and never questioned his attachment to the other girl. Where's her self respect?
Pretty much the only character I really cared for was Slade. He was a lot of fun.
As an aside, I do have to say, that Slade's dad yanking a snow covered branch from a tree and setting it on fire it immediately with a lighter so he could scare a bear away was ridiculous.
The language is rough, even from people who are supposed to be highly educated, genteel in high society, and they are worse than a country bumpkin at a king's ball, picking fights and wiping noses on cloth napkins (then they go have sex out by the dumpster!). No one has manners and no sense of reserve. Everyone has a volatile temper, ready to spew vindictive and hurtful reproaches or physically fight. They are lawless yet the parents keep reminding their children of what not to do, but do not follow their own advice. The evil characters of the 'Sopranos' were more charming and better heeled than these reprobates.
I was disappointed in all three books, reading them, hoping the story would get better.
I do not understand how this author or the books with such foul language and crummy stories could be a USA Best Seller.
Are we now so accepting of drivel and trashy literature that it is nothing more than a tweet of social media craze? I like a good romance and they can be rowdy and exciting, but this author has us chasing our tails, round in circles with the same arguments, comments and themes. Even when the sex is supposed to be romantic, it is blah or lousy. No one actually gets better or changes that drastically for the good because of LOVE. Nothing in the story, characters or narratives made any of it seem like love. The characters were all jealous, petty, stubborn, crummy ne'er-do-wells. For all their millions they did nothing to better themselves or each other or even society. Sad and bad literature. Are we destined to be like this? If not, the author owes us an apology for her hedonist characters.

While the stories are good, you will find after these first three the books, they get progressively shorter in length. So for those who are fast readers such as myself, you will finish them within a few hours making the stories not really worth the amount charged for each book.
As there over 40+ books in the series, I’m already finding a lot of the books could easily be combined as I’m finding myself getting to the end of a book and thinking “oh... is that it”. I’m wondering if this was just a way to make more money.
From book four you will also find many spelling and grammatical errors which ruins the flow of the story.
So overall while the stories are ok and there are many characters to get to know and follow, I’m not sure if this series is worth the financial investment and I will probably not continue on after I’ve finished my latest book.
