Another problem is the presentation of the history in regards to timeline. It's fine if you wanna skip around to past, present and somewhere in between as long as you tell your reader what the eff is going on. We know Sam and Liz hookup and fall out. All of a sudden it's two years later and Liz is talking about how they've been together two separate times. Again, what'd I miss? Don't drip feed history in a confusing way and call it mysterious. It doesn't work out in your favor.
The main plot is good. I'll say it again: this book's plot is good. Or at the very least has a lot of potential, albeit a tad predictable. Don't ruin a good thing with all the unexplained secondary crap. Seriously, where was the editor? A sentence or two for each new character isn't too hard.
Now, the reason I gave 3 stars when I was so clearly pissed with the writing style? It's smoking hot. Liz is quick with the wit and not afraid to speak her mind. Kinda wanted to slap her a bit and tell her to get some self respect, but I like what she and Sam have when they're together.
Sam is a insecure man.
The chemistry is great between these two.
I don't like this story. There is a lot going on and I am never sure who I'm reading about.
I don't like the heroine. I don't find her interesting. Her sister and friends seem more interesting than she does.
All she wants is Sam but when she has him she doesn't want him. Really? I just can't stand this type of situation. It feels contrived to me so the author can stretch the story.
I don't see this as being a romance. Sam and Liz are not together. They just satisfy each others needs and move on. This doesn't make for romance.
It makes me feel icky reading about how everyone has slept with everyone else. I'm not interested in reading more.
He wants to tie me up, but I don't know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn't point him out in a crowd.
I've fallen for an anonymous stranger, and now the anonymity ends. I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.
Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn't a stranger at all.
Lizzy Thompson met Riverrat69 online through Something Real, a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they've reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.
Now they're breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She's picked up hints and followed clues. She's ninety-percent convinced she's discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.
She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.
When she rolls the dice on one reckless night, her chance at something real could crumble.
WOW!!! Lexi has done it again!!! This book is off the charts amazing!!!! I loved Liz & Sam characters from the very beginning of the book! Their chemistry is smoking hot!!
This book had me a roller coaster and without giving anything away the ending is a shocker!!!!!
This is a must read and I can't wait for the next book to see how things work out!!!!!
