Confusing and aggravating
February 9, 2016
I am not sure I even liked what I just read enough to give this three stars. But there's something about this family of characters that is compelling enough to keep me reading.
This is the story of Charlotte, a 24 yr old virgin who is seemingly traumatized by the thought of having sex, so much so that it's the reason that she chose to break up with Christopher, who we met briefly in the last book.
Christopher is confused and surprised, dismayed, at Charlotte's breaking up with him that his dick continually leads him back to Ashley, his go-to woman for hot sex. She doesn't want a relationship or kids so she's "perfect." While I get that this is an erotic novel, it's supposed to be a romance and I hated reading his scenes with Ashley, whom he runs to and sleeps with whenever things go wrong with Charlotte. On the other hand, it's not surprising that he might do this. Charlotte is weirdly bipolar about the whole sex thing, has a temper like you wouldn't believe, jumps to conclusions and has major communication issues. We also find Christopher to have a temper like you wouldn't believe, and he acts impetuously and also seems to have major communication issues.
All of which drove me crazy, hence the three stars.
And there are the subplots that get introduced but go nowhere.... that seem to involve the doctors at the hospital and Julie's mother and one of the doctor's husbands. It's alluded to in a couple of paragraphs but then ignored. Poor Cathy hasn't found anyone yet.
