A friend (who is a faithful reader of romance novels, but is fully capable of ironic and camp readings of texts) recommended this book to me. She had not read it. "But," she reasoned, "how can a book called Pregnesia be anything less than awesome?" I bought the book.

Pregnesia is either a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, or the single worst piece of writing I've ever read (I am a graduate teaching assistant and college writing tutor, so I essentially read bad writing for a living). I'm leaning towards the former: there is a certain level of brilliance achieved through inanity. Pregnesia is to romance novels what Showgirls is to the backstage musical film. It contains insane plot twists, a total lack of character development or motivation, a lot of driving in circles, terrible dialogue, shopping trips to Wal-Mart, and a local eatery called Cafe Italian (because "cafe" isn't a French word at all).

I read this book in an hour. I was laughing for approximately 45 minutes of that hour.

There is no actual romance in this book. But I did read the whole thing, and I could only make it through five pages of the Twilight series. So there's that.

This book is so stupid a kind of grandeur creeps into it. Really, it's like the stupidest thing I've ever read and it's so good for it.

Saw reviews of this book online and needed to get a copy for myself. Since buying it I have actually loaned it out to many envious friends who have been wanting to read it. I'm going to add it to my list of fun books to buy as gag gifts, along with "The Very Virile Viking" (still my favorite).

All righty then.

I probably *should* give this book 2 stars. After all, I did figure out the mystery part almost immediately. Oh, and if you're looking for really steamy scenes, you're going to have to look further because, well, pregnant. But, come on, the title is Pregnesia. That is worth at least one star right there.

I found the book very easy to read, and I especially liked Lucas's character as well as the concept of ex-military bros going into a specialized repo sort of business. I liked Loretta, the sister of Lucas, and Jane was pretty good except for the use of the phrase "jiggle my memory" which ranks up there with nails on a chalk board for some reason.

My biggest complaint is that the juiciest part of the plot comes at the very end. That's the part I wanted to know more about. You know, the part I can't tell you because of spoilers and all that? All in all, I'd say this is a pretty solid read if you're partial to Intrigues. If you're looking for a more complex thriller/suspense story line, then you'll probably need to find a single title.
