I want my money back. Not only does this protagonist TELL me all her wicked scars in the first 5 pages, this author relies on plot twists and basically the title page seems like it could give it away? I don't know, i only got to 24%.
One reason was Jake was a creeper, and that's not sexy. Hey, I'll follow a single girl, but she's got a gut feeling that is good about me, so it's fine. Well, she shouldn't. In a few pages, he gets pissed because she's dated a lot of guys. Upon getting called on it, he states "you're better than me."
And so please. We all know This may or may not be a spoiler. Clearly this guy is Leo post some surgery or something. I'm bored.
Jake kisses her when he picks her up for the date, and for some reason it's equally unsexy to everything else he's done. Did I mention he's following her because Leo asked? Well, he is. And yet, he doesn't know Leo that well. I don't know, couldn't Leo have like, called at any point? Leo also seems lame. Also, you know he's asked her to wait, so he's definitely lame.
Choppy, juvenile writing to go along with anemic plot and trauma porn? I'm out. Life's too short.
