There are some reviews that I saw on goodreads saying that this book is homophobic, now I, myself, don’t really see that. I do see that she could have written the gay character differently. She didn’t have to make that his one character quality that was mentioned every time he comes in.
I don’t know though, that’s just how I see it. If anyone thinks differently, I would really appreciate a different view of it. All they said on goodreads was that it was homophobic but not why so, I’m a little confused.
Also, I did not like how the author introduced the mystery element. The very first chapter was in the POV of someone who wasn’t mentioned at all in the teaser so, right off the bat, I’m confused and it felt like it was forced.
When the mystery is resolved, it felt anti-climatic and disappointing.
The writing was alright and the characters just seemed one-dimensional, not very developed.
It was…I really can’t think of a better description then eh.
The heroine, Sinclair Jeffries, agrees to play girlfriend for her gay friend Jesse during his parent's anniversary party. She then meets Reed, Jesse's brother, and of course, they have an instant attraction, which is immediately complicated by his witchy supermodel fiance. There's a couple of other things going on that but that's the main story. I think.
Pretty sure I got this for free, which was nice.
*blinks* yeah, some funny parts, and frustrated almost sex scenes.....hmmm. Oh and I read through it pretty quickly. There's a thread of a decent idea here, but the execution is definitely lacking.
Honestly having an issue thinking of what is good about this. It's like 3 different stories, all intersecting at this party, but it's really, just a holy hot mess.
There's a secondary (or is it the third plot?) where Sin's being stalked by crazy man that climaxes earlier than I thought and in a very unsatisfying way. It almost made me wonder why it was even thrown into this story, since there was enough going on between Sin and Reed's attraction, Jesse hiding his sexual orientation, Reed's skanky, cokewh*re of a fiance and his messed up mom and stepdad. The characters are so stereotypical, and there's a desperate need for some focus.
The Bottom Line
I didn't hate it. But I wouldn't recommend it.
