Writing: 1 stars
So, I’m not sure what happened here. I loved The Golden Dynasty so much I would shout it from the rooftops.
But with KA’s smorgasbord of books, I am so lost.
It wasn’t the storyline so much that I didn’t like; it was the fact I could read about three sentences in a row without having to stop, blink, reread, blink. “oh that’s what it means.” Move on. Repeat process 1.2 million more times.
Seriously what kind of genius’s are you KA fans? Because I felt like a kindergartner trying to read Jane Austen. Expect, if I were five I would have thrown the book across the room; apparently, adults can’t do that.
So I stuck it out, all in the sense that maybe I could learn how to actually read. And then I realized it wasn’t all my fault. The way KA describes some stuff, she does it in the most difficult way. What. The. Actual. Though. The writing gave me such a headache, and it was so hard to even try to get into the story.
Insanely long descriptions and monologue from the heroine.
That’s right, skim time.
And because I couldn’t understand half of what these characters were saying, well, I didn’t really understand what was going on.
So half the time I had no idea what was going on, but in that odd time that I did…I actually really did like Knight. No, I didn’t have a problem with his crazy want to control his woman. He was laid back in just the right ways for me not to hate him. This is fiction. I don’t want to deal with a man like this in real life, or I would, you know, go out and find one. I prefer to keep the controlling, possessive men in my books, but no, I’m not going to pull out my feminist card and get all mad. It’s a book. Don’t give it to your thirteen-year-old and you’ll be fine.
I don’t like bdsm, but the light S & M factor here didn’t bother me much and I kinda liked it. And it brought an exciting vibe to the story. Was Anya going to disobey him so she could get into trouble? Fun stuff.
Anyway, I liked the hero, but not so much the heroine. She whispered, “Okay,” probably more than she says anything else. Knight told her to do something, she did it. She sometimes stood up for herself, but most of the time, just rolled over for him. Not my cuppa there.
Not to mention everything about the sex between them did not work for me. It felt so mechanical. But to be fair I was trying to figure out what was actually happening, because again, the wording was weird. So, what I got out of it were some mechanical actions. Not to mention the fact the hero has the heroine call him "daddy".
There were just some things that I could have overlooked, but the “no” factors just kept piling up, so I’m just going to lay them out.
“Give me that beauty.”
“Who possesses your beauty?”
“Baby wants her Daddy.”
“Jesus, I’m going to possess that beauty.”
First of all, calling your partner 'daddy' in any shape or form is disgusting, cringe worthy and just plain creepy. I kept thinking of a little girl when Knight would say 'baby wants her daddy' and it made me a little sick. How on Earth is it acceptable to make the terms for father and daughter into something sexual?
Secondly, Knight's dialogue. Man, it was bad. He never spoke in full sentences, only abrupt ones. The author tried way too hard to make him sound cool and sexy, but the result was an overdone idiot with a control complex.
Thirdly, everyone whispers. Literally. Every other line is 'she whispered', 'he whispered'. Even when they were in a bloody nightclub.
Fourthly, no one acts like Knight. I didn't get him as an alpha male. Everything about him was forced. Anya's character was laughable too. She went along with everything and didn't question anything because she wasn't allowed to. 'Daddy' said jump and 'baby' said how high.
Fifth, this is supposed to be a romance, but up until they said I love you, there wasn't an indication of romance. None whatsoever.
This is the second book I've tried by this author and it will be my last. Her male characters are the exact same and her plots are too predictable. There is no diversity, no depth, no elements of surprise, just the same kind of book with different character names.
I hope this book knocks it out of the park for a reader, but sadly, that reader is not me.
I was already having a hard time following the dialog. "Knight" needed to come with an interpreter to figure out what he was trying to convey.
The character Anya has no substance or backbone..."Okay" was her favorite word. And again...she called her boyfriend "daddy"...double EWWWW with a little puke in my mouth.
I made it until about 50% and then added it to the "crappy romance" file on my Kindle.
Big NO from me on this. I'm ticked that I actually spent money on this book.
