I wasted my time and experienced only negative emotions by reading this book. Other that the sexy times between the hero and heroine there was nothing that I liked about the story.
I hated the hero. He deliberately hurt the heroine in everyway possible. It started with him constantly degrading and verbally abusing the heroine for a year. This included making sure she heard him having smex with other women knowing that she was in love with him. It also included him demanding she do things to intentionally humiliate her like every week making her buy him rubbers so he could have smex with all of those OW, buying her ugly outfits and insisting that she must wear them to work and intentionally ruining any dates that she tried to have. So while he was getting his needs met on a consistent basis she was celibate since she started working for him.
She allowed herself to be treated this way because she claimed to love the hero and wanted to help her dad pay his house payment. Her dad was a grown man who could pay his own bills and if he had to move to a different house or an apartment then he should have manned up and done so as opposed to letting his daughter help support him. The heroine was a pathetic doormat and instead of feeling sorry for her she disgusted me almost as much as the so called hero did.
Then they became lovers and the hero continued to sporadically treat her like dirt while at other times claiming that he loved her and could not live without her. It wasn't until he committed two ultimate betrayals that she finally developed a backbone and left him. She got the best ending for her and dispite having no respect for her I was happy for her.
The only things I liked about the hero was that he appeared to be possessive and jealous. The romantic in me has a weakness for that type of romance hero. (In reality when I was single, I avoided dating that type of man.) I should have know that the hero acting that way ended up being a bunch of cr&p. Despite his declaration of undying love, of never wanting another woman for the rest of his life after they had smex and not being able to live without her and feeling possessive towards the hero he did not even try to get her back. He let her go and went on with his life. The epilogue showed that. This is one of the few times that I have wanted a hero to die became he could not even keep his word. His feeling for the heroine and emotions proved to be fleeting. I hate his caviler manner and the words the hero said when he last saw the heroine. It was an unplanned meeting. He might as well have winked at her and thanked her for working for him
I loved Andi. She sees Devon for who he is, he treats her like crap, confuses her constantly but she can't walk away from him. Of course working for him makes everything harder and I'm not going to lie, there were times I wanted to shake some sense into her.
The ending of this book was unexpected. I'm still not sure how I feel about it if I'm honest but I loved how the story played out (although the ending seemed a little rushed) and although I did hate Devon from start to finish, a part of me did secretly love his character and I would kill for more from him.
It has been a week since I finished 'Tailspin' and it is still consuming my thoughts. Even though my emotions are still all over the place with this one, I'm going to try and capture my thoughts in this review. Who knows, maybe it will prove to be therapeutic!
This book completely and totally wrecked me -- in the best of ways. I absolutely devoured it. If I had started it early in the day, I would have read it in one sitting. As it was, I started it in the evening and read well into the night. Eventually, pure exhaustion overtook me and I fell asleep with my iPad propped up on my chest. When it finally fell over and hit me in my face, all I could think about was getting right back to the story. It was that kind of book for me. The kind that consumes your every thought until you finish it...then continues to haunt you for days or weeks afterward.
Although this book has fast become my latest favorite, I will be honest about the fact that it will not appeal to many readers. In fact, I know that many of my friends will downright hate this book. Why? Well, it deals will some difficult and controversial subject matter. This book tackles topics like abuse, rape, addiction, mental illness, etc. If you require your books to be a "unicorns and rainbows" picture of perfection, then you should run far, far away from this one.
If you are like me though, and love it when a book can make you "feel" things that you may not even be comfortable feeling, then this book is exactly what you are looking for. This book made me feel conflicted, sad, angry, joyful, devastated. You name it and I felt it while reading this one. It has been a long time since I've read something that took me on that kind of an emotional rollercoaster ride. It blew me away!
There is nothing that I love more than an uber-a$$hole that may, or may not, be redeemable. I have a personal weakness for leading males that make you love them in spite of all reason. Devon Jackson is exactly that type of guy.
In real life, this is a guy that you should run from at all costs. However, for me, his character was fictional perfection. I could not get enough of this complex, damaged, guy. Oh, how I loved him...even as he broke my heart.
The heroine, Andi Bellingham, was Devon's polar opposite. She was naïve, sweet and strictly off-limits. The younger sister of Devon's best friend, Charlie, she is hired as Devon's personal assistant as a favor to her brother. Of course, she has spent years lusting after her older brother's best friend, but she knows that he's out of her league. If Andi ever had doubts, the weekly condom runs that he sends her on and his mid-day office trysts drive the message home.
When I started this book, I thought it would play out like a million other romantic comedy types. Devon was an ass, but I couldn't help but laugh at his outrageous antics. I was sure that I knew exactly how things would play out as he began to lose his internal struggle to hide his attraction to Andi. I kept thinking, "This is great, but I know where it's headed." I was wrong.
Then, about half-way through, there is a shift in the story. It took on a different tone. Again, I thought I had it pegged. Nope. I was still clueless. Nonetheless, I cruised along blissfully unaware of what Ms. Roberts had in store for me.
Suddenly, big things are happening. Huge, plot twists and revelations seem to spring up out of nowhere. My world was turned upside down as I looked back at all of the subtle warning signs and clues that were there all along. Ms. Roberts left a trail of crumbs, but I didn't want to see them. I was blinded by my own hopes and expectations. Then, she came along and pulled the rug out from under my feet.
It was absolutely brilliant! I don't want to give too much away, because this is a story that needs to be experienced. It is a story about obsession, love and forgiveness. It was painful, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have no doubt that this book is one that I will re-read, time and time again. I absolutely LOVED this book!
