At least it's not sweet thing or sweetness or sweetstuff or sweet googly moogly, so ... it could be worse?

Babe...ohmygod!!! 200 babe's would have sent me into a rage I am so over that term of endearment and even if it had been a catch phrase thing like sweetheart was in this book I probably would have ended up wanting to scratch my eyes out. I was surprise this one didn't make me crazy but like I said in my review he used it the as if it was he, she, hey you. It just didn't have that 'term of endearment' tone to it, if that makes any sense.

Babe's never bothered me like it does others. It's the sickly sweet ones that annoy me. Thankfully, you don't come across those often.

So it's like his "dude" then.

Babe never use to bother me but I've read some books where it's so over-used that it now just sends me around the bend and yes, sweetheart is totally the equivalent of 'dude' or 'bro' for Ricky.

From everything I've seen and read I'd have to say that for this author I don't think this was his best. I'm hoping to give him a second try at some point and see if it was a case of it's this book or this author and I just don't click. Just not sure when that'll happen.
