So not only is the main character insinuating that her friend isn't pretty because she's *gasp* 160 pounds and BRUNETTE, but she's also insinuating that a woman's self-worth is inseparable from her ability to land a man and procreate.
So, yeah. I was done about six pages in. Maybe the character grows, but I doubt it. I doubt the author even realized how sexist and awful those few paragraphs sound.
Truly what really bugs me about this book is that I cannot relate to Grateful at all. She calls herself slutty, then she doesn't really hold herself accountable for her feelings, she leads others on, she's totally unsure of herself in a lot of situations, she makes excuses for her decisions, and she lets other people dissuade her from doing what she feels she should do/wants to do. How about instead of making excuses, you own up to your mistakes and start working towards fixing the problems you've created? Instead of letting others dissuade you from doing what you feel is right, why don't you explain yourself and do it anyway? I would not recommend this book to anyone and I am very surprised it got so many high reviews. Thank goodness it was free or I would have wasted my money.
The main character, Grateful, is a loser who will probably rapidly go Mary-Sue. She's a 22yo nurse (which I find highly unlikely in this era of higher-education). She's already had several bad relationships but is only 22, including some guy who stole from her to the extent that she moves an hour from her job to live for free in a house her dad owns. Give me a break! I know what nurses make, and I'm not buying. Stupid premise right there.
Enter the super-hottie, the caretaker, who she instantly connects with. She lets him perform oral sex on her about 15pages into the book. I'm not a prude, but give me a little - just a smidge - of relationship development first. She blows him on their next date which is tricky because he is hung like a horse. The description of his clock defies the boundaries of nature.
The story elements are flung fast & thick so far. I had to stop it because I can predict every step Grateful will take. The writing is cliche. If I resume the book and change my opinion, I'll edit my review. I'm glad I didn't pay anything for this.
