“…should it really be this hard to sit and enjoy a book? ”
~ Under the Covers

On paper this book has everything I think I want; action, sci fi, snarky heroine, hot ‘n heavy romance. In reality it took me weeks and weeks to get to 46% of the book and the thought of trying to wade through it just left me feeling a little depressed. Why didn’t I like it? My head was telling me I should, my heart was bored and begging me to just move on. By 46% I was listening to my heart and Wanted and Wired has now been relegated to my DNF pile.

There wasn’t anything inherently wrong with this book, unlike some DNFs or 1 star reviews I have nothing I want to rant about and point out as awful. I simply could not connect with either the characters or the story. I found the heroine’s hedonistic approach to life a little distasteful, although it didn’t make me dislike her, I just didn’t get her. The hero…was okay.

As for the storyline, there was both too little and not enough. I wasn’t entirely certain what they were running from, nor was I entirely sure of the factions that were mentioned in the book. It all seemed very scrambled and left me feeling the same way.

As much as I wanted to, I just didn’t like this book, I tried hard, but I kept thinking…should it really be this hard to sit and enjoy a book? The answer was no, so I decided it was the right time to put it down and move on.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I didn’t last as long as you did. I couldn’t get into the characters or the plot and I really wanted to b/c it sounded like a good story.
