I'm always reading something, usually multiple books at a time.
Plot-driven story with some clunky writing and characters behaving in ways that actual humans probably would not. Two stars instead of one because the plot did hold my interest so that I wanted to find out how the story resolved itself. There were some twists I did not see coming.
I am not a "romance" kind of reader, and when I realized there's a romance angle in the plot, I braced myself. I find most sex scenes in novels to be cringe-worthy, laughable, or both. I did find myself cringe-laughing at some of the sex in this book. I am not making up this phrase: "The arrogant jut of his penis." A penis can have an arrogant jut? Also, the author does something I detest: referring to characters' genitalia as "his sex" or "her sex."
