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.
Let me start by clarifying that the prequel novella Something Wild is included at the beginning of this book. I was confused at first because the promised texting between Lizzy and riverrat69 doesn't happen. Then the novella ended and this book started. And the texting began.
I went back to check after I started this one to make sure it was contemporary romance because it sure read like erotic. I'm not a fan of erotic. I need more of a story than the sex. I need more than a page or two between either having sex, talking about sex or thinking about sex. Such is not the case in this book. Lots of thinking, talking and doing in this one.
I didn't really care for Lizzy. I don't get her really. She's fallen for Sam but when he turns her down because she's a seventeen virgin, she jumps into the arms of another college guy THAT night. I guess it could be a seventeen year-old issue but later she makes equally stupid decisions. There's too much that seems like cheating to me in this book. I just can't deal with that.
Sam doesn't make sense to me either. He's a player with a problem. But he wants the problem to stay. Then it doesn't and he hates them for it. I get the hating thing but I don't understand why the player boy would want this problem to stick around. Yes, I know I'm being vague. *shrugs* Trying not to spoil it for ya.
The whole mystery of who she's texting was just disgusting to me. I never thought it was Sam. And when I found out who it was, I was even more unhappy with the whole feel of this book. No thank you. No more. I will not read the next one.
I think this book just wasn't for me.
