DNF @ 45%:
Oh boy...this is the hardest review I've ever had to write. I literally have a stomach ache over it, but this book was just no bueno. I was driving the people around me insane as I continued to make comments and complain about the content...even my status updates are whiny. (For the record, I'm not a complainer at all) I just could not get into this book.
I am so sorry to the author, and I really wanted to like it. It just wasn't even close to believable for a contemporary piece. It was too fast forward and I just could not wrap my head around the "fairytale" of an HEA like this.
Maybe I'm off base and I look forward to reading reviews from others as it's released but this book was just not one I could sit through, I'm sorry.
Today, I finished Trust. Determined to not be a quitter (and I felt horrible that I did not give it at least a 50% chance), I have a little more to add.
First, it deserves another star; so I adjusted. It did get a little better, and I can see how the author wanted to the story to play out. I loved Annabelle in this story (but again, it felt like the timeline was off...they were too cozy too fast) and Megan & Mark became a little more believable...but when Rich comes in the picture, it just confused things and really hasn't gone anywhere. Maybe that is saved for a later story...
Second, L. Chapman, I just want to say; you are a very gracious and nice person. No doubt you have a heart of gold (your bio is a true test of your character--I love that you were a DJ). ;-). I do hope to read more from you and I commend on your courage for putting yourself out there, laid bare, for the world to see.
Third, please make sure you give Trust a try. Just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean someone else won't love it. I look forward to hearing others thoughts!
