I went into this knowing it would have too much explicit sex for my liking…and so I wasn't pissed off about that.  I also fast-forwarded through them some, and that helped, too.  I do have to give the narrator's props for reading these sex scenes out loud, because wow, they were raw.  Also some props for the Author, for always keeping it real with the way she writes her sex scenes.  (I suppose I can let it slide the couple times she referred to a vagina as a sex…serious pet-peeve of mine.) 

 

While I had some issues with the MC (Blair is one f'-ed up chic) and the believability of the story...I think, overall, I liked how different this story is…it wasn't cliched like a lot of New Adult/Contemporary Romance stories out these days.  The fate of the love triangle will leave you wondering just which direction it's going in, right up until the very end.

 

Will I read more from this Author? Maybe…

Reading progress update: I've read 85%.
Shiver - Brooke Blaine,Ella Frank

Pale faces…

Blank eyes…

A face devoid of any emotion because the one I took the journey with no longer lived and walked beside me with the darkest secret a soul could house.

That was what hell looked like. I knew because I’d been there before, only to emerge from it more broken than I’d been going in, and alone. I couldn’t forget that. The first and only other time it had happened, I had emerged from the most corrupt part of my being—alone.

 

Gaaaaaahhhh.  I fucking love this book!!!

Oh God, this is crazy… And even though I held the power to stop what was happening, there was no way I was uttering my safe word. I wanted to see how far he’d go, and he was trusting that I could handle it. I wouldn’t let him down, and what was more, I…wanted it. The pain. The pleasure I knew would eventually come. Use me

“Just remember, I told you before I’m no knight. I’m the Wolfe. I don’t want to save you or marry you. I don’t want to be your boyfriend. I want to eat you. Fuck you. Make you feel things you never have before, and most of all, I want you to beg me for more.”

This is a book that deals with some controversial subjects, that I feel, ultimately has its heart in the right place.  The MC, in the beginning, comes off as very immature and offensive with some of the comments she has about Muslim women.  But…I think it was done this way by the author for a purpose, so you could see her learn and relate and even grow as a person.  Which she does do, and she becomes a better person by the end. 

 

My only issue with this, was mainly just that it was slow; not much happens that excited me.  Mostly, just sightseeing and eating different kinds of food.  Then at about 85% mark something does happen, and yeah, you could totally see it coming…and then we're rushed into an ending and an epilogue…all very quickly done.  I did really like the Cedar Point references, (MC is from Sandusky, Ohio) because I do love Cedar Point.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  Yes, I would; I only ever read one other book by Trish Doller (Something Like Normal) and I really liked that one.
