Plot overview: Almost lawyer Jess puts herself in danger and requires rescuing multiple times by Kane Bishop, a guy who is working for the city’s worst-of-the-worst criminal element.
First of all, let me just say that I kind of liked Bishop. He was a snarky, dirty-talking, bad boy, and I probably would’ve enjoyed reading about him with ANY heroine other than Jess.
I also enjoy the author’s writing voice and style. She’s talented. Truly. I don’t want what I’m about to say to be a reflection on her ability to...author. She’s good. No question.
But here are the ways in which I loathe Jess with an almost violent passion:
And the twist ending? I saw it coming a mile away. But I wouldn’t have taken a star away if Jess had been a halfway decent heroine. The one star I let this book kept belongs solely to Bishop.
So, long-story-short, the hero is a pretty decent dude, the author is a talented lady, and the heroine is a dumpster fire of epic proportions. May she never darken my Kindle ever again.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s not stigma-y. I just hate the heroine with a nearly unrivaled fiery passion.
