“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.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
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!
