“I didn’t connect with this book.”
~ Under the Covers

I know there are a lot of people who enjoy this series and this author and while I did like one of the books in her other series, I haven’t been thrilled with the others as much. Kylie Scott writes stories that are often light-hearted and fun. You can expect a lot of shenanigans and humor riddled throughout and although I typically love stories like that, I am finding that these stories have become a little too uncontrolled. Sometimes I feel like events happen simply because the author things it would be funny or interesting and the scenes don’t always come across that way. At least for me.

The opening scene of this book completely turns me off from the characters. When the heroine approached the man who she believes she’s been emailing for months and learns that he wasn’t the guy at all but it was his brother, I really felt disappointed. I’m just not a fan of the premise or the heroine.

Joe seemed nice but I just couldn’t get on board with the jokes that were supposed to be funny but weren’t. I also would never in a million years see myself ever being friends with these characters in real life because I think they act really immature. That’s possibly the main reason why I didn’t connect with this book. Also, there’s not much conflict in the story. That being said, I think this will be my last Kylie Scott book.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Sorry you didn’t enjoy this one, Annie. It’s hard to let an author go when you’ve previously enjoyed their books.

If they’re that immature, I probably wouldn’t connect with them either.

I’ve felt that way about authors when the latest is a fail. I then again one more time and usually find the next book better. Thanks.

Immaturity is a fault of NA/YA and a reason I avoid the genre in general. I read the excerpt from the first chapter of Twist and wasn’t impressed either. Basically disliked the heroine from the get-go, a frequent finding for me of late and a reason I prefer M/M romances now. I received a free copy of Dirty as a book club read and so far have only read part of the first chapter. I’m not one for “sweet”, forced-funny, or light&fluffy, and for humor I go to Lynsay Sands. At least Sands’ books have interesting vampires in them. Thanks… Read more »
