The sex is hot, so it gets 2 stars, but that's the last time I spend 9.99 on a Burton book.
In the beginning, I really liked both these characters--especially Ty. He was great--he wasn't ruled by his ego and he could be strong without being a cave man. Plus, I like a man who knows what he wants and doesn't play games.
But, for someone who was supposed to be a hard-ass who spoke her mind and "pushed back", Jenna was such a total wuss when it counted, that it pissed me off and my admiration for her took a nosedive.
Truthfully, I didn't know what Ty saw in her--besides the sex. ENDLESS, REPETITIVE sex, just like all the other novels in this series. Seriously, I never thought I'd say this, but, enough with the sex, already!!
How do these people have time to do anything else? How do these girls walk with straight legs? Also, some of the sex scenes could have been cut and pasted from the previous books in the series. When reading sex scenes, and these are decently written, they shouldn't become boring. But there were so many, and they were so similar...I found myself skimming a few.
I would have liked more story, less sex.
In addition, I was disappointed there wasn't better conflict between the characters. Jenna's issues were unrealistic given the dynamics of her family and her supposedly fierce personality.Read more ›
All in all, it wasn't a bad story, I just felt like both characters made too big of a deal out of some little things (Jenna doesn't date athletes. Tyler thinks she will judge him for coming from a broken home with a dad who he thinks is a jerk - I kind of wanted more of a story about his dad being a jerk than we got).
Good writing. Steamy scenes. Also, I listened to parts of it through audible and the narrator was once again wonderful.
Lucky for Janna she has Tara and Elizabeth to confide in and both woman really gave support. I think now by book 3 that Elizabeth had redeemed herself. Got to give Mrs Burton credit there, nobody who read the first book thought that Liz was worth redeeming or she had any compassion. So she showed she did and I loved that part of it.
So many funny parts too. Loved and adored Mick and Tara's wedding and well as the planning for Liz and Gavin. Certain times when the girls were together they would talk about the brothers and Jenna would just freak out. That made them all that much more real. The way that she spoke to Liz and Tara was much closer and called them her "sisters". So we saw Jenna evolve and show a whole person with different layers. Especially with the descriptions of her appearance, very rock chick with tattoos.
As for the Riley clan, Jimmy is back to normal and Kathleen is on a mission. The mission is to extract the truth from Jenna and explore the Ty relationship too. In the end you will find out what Jenna's reveal was and the way it plays out was great. This family dynamic is amazing.Read more ›
