In essence, this book feels like an adult book with an erotic plot that was slapped onto a couple of 15 year old hormonal teenagers that manage to have adult sex scenes. Grant and Kendra’s relationship can basically be summarized as manipulation, shaming, jealousy, and irrational behavior. The high school relationship games continue throughout the whole book. Just when you think that maybe they can sort through some problems as adults – nope – just a setup for another over the top irrational argument. I can understand some of the hot and cold actions in the beginning but the characters never changed, never learned and kept escalating the toxic behavior for negative reactions in each other. Both Grant and Kendra flirt with other people in front of each other to get the other ‘jealous’ but Grant takes this up a notch when he decides to break it off with Kendra and get into another relationship IMMEDIATELY. He then proceeds to blame Kendra for why he couldn’t keep his pants zipped and that he didn’t mean to sleep with the other woman. Right. <insert eye roll here> That’s why he kept doing it of course. When Grant and Kendra decide to get back together – the other woman just seems to ‘disappear’ as convenient to the plot.
I don’t understand how the author was trying to show that these two people loved each other because I didn’t see any loving behavior displayed anywhere. When it came time to ‘resolve’ the issues – it was over in 2 pages. All these high school games over in a snap but not really addressed as adults. It was rushed. The characters emotional development was stunted, juvenile, and toxic. The secondary characters weren’t any better. The author kept telling the readers the characters were falling in love or already in love but nowhere did any of their actions actually support this theory and show it. Since this book was based on Kendra working in Grant’s candy sex toy shop – I was expecting the shop to be exploited for a developing relationship and hot sex scenes and I was let down there too. Such a disappointment.
