And now I'm f*cked. She's f*cked.
I'm trouble, that's all I am, and I brought that to her doorstep.
She's gonna hate me. But she's not leaving.
She tempted me; now she's mine.
Jesus, this was awful. I only made it through 7% of this story before my Kindle starting screaming for mercy. But that tiny little portion of the book gave me enough eye-rolls that I still have a headache. Here it goes (taking a deep breath):
Overall thoughts? I wouldn’t wish this one on my worst enemy.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Contributes! This one definitely perpetuated the myth that romance novels are unrealistic, all about sex, and badly written. This book is in immediate need of rehab! (Although I’m not entirely sure any amount of rehab can fix it)
Other reading suggestions
If you’re looking for a good, light and funny (and fairly clean) “hot guy next door” story, try Kristan Higgins’ Too Good to be True. For a little darker, sexier take on the bad boy next door neighbor, try Last Hit by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick. In new adult romance, I highly recommend Neighbor Dearest, by Penelope Ward, which is a great blend of angst, humor and sexy times.
