This is the first book that I've read by this author. It wasn't what I expected. Not in a bad way, but it was a bit deeper than I expected. I kind of thought it would be a fun geeky romance, but a couple of the characters in this book have mental health issues. The heroine attempted suicide during a dark period of her life and she currently suffers panic attacks. The hero's brother is bi-polar and the rest of the hero's "family" seem to have issues that are alluded to, but not specifically addressed (future books).
I found the title odd. But, it's based on some Internet sex game of counting backwards from 100 while engaging in sexual activities with the goal of orgasm at 0. I don't know if this is a real thing or not.
So, Grady is an adjunct instructor at a college. Eva does web work. They meet on a forum for the show "Firefly". They share a love of the show and other "geeky" things. They get to know each other very well over a four month time period, but Eva has strict rules about keeping a certain amount of distance. They've never talked on the phone or met in person, but have exchanged pictures. They are supposed to have an Internet "date" one afternoon, but Eva has to cancel because her sister shows up. As a sort of apology, Eva sends Grady an audio file of her touching herself while engaging in The One Hundred game. He's very hooked.
Then she shows up in his classroom the next day. Her employer has offered to increase her salary if she completes her degree. The story takes off after that classroom meeting.
Grady is all in from the beginning. There's really no hesitation on his part. He doesn't want to hide his relationship with Eva.Read more ›
I will admit that throughout most of the story I didn't like it as much as I had expected to. The story had a dark undertone and felt almost voyeuristic. The plot made me feel uncomfortable because it addressed mental issues that even in today's world still seem taboo. Most romance novels have the common antagonistic themes like bad past relationships, mommy/daddy or self esteem issues that we all can relate to. TOH went deeper than that going into situations that if you could relate to meant you had really been through some stuff. Most people read to escape reality which is normally true for me. So reading a story about Eva who has serious mental baggage and Grady whose existence is centered around being the fixer for a band of misfits (the Goons) who all had their own mental hang ups didn't seems to be so appealing. No matter how hot and sexy the rest of the story was.
Even though I struggled to get into the story I continued to read and I am so glad I did.Read more ›
This story was as much a journey of discovery as it was finding that one person who makes you feel whole.
I loved the relationship not only between the 2 main characters Eva and Grady, but also the secondary characters. Grady's brother Wade was a great dynamic to build Grady's story.
I HATED Eva's sister Lauren. She was such a negative nelly, I get it, but supporting Eva to become strong and independent would have been better than trying to keep Eva under her control.
The only thing I didn't like was how the story ended. It felt abrupt and unfinished. I hope this is corrected in the next book in the series.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO PEOPLE WHO LOVE ROMANCE, DEEP CONNECTION, FAMILY DYSFUNCTION, HUMOUR AND DRAMA!
