“99 PERCENT MINE … just didn’t sit well with me.”
~ Under the Covers
It pains me to write this review. I went into 99 PERCENT MINE expecting to enjoy it because I liked THE HATING GAME. It wasn’t my favorite romance novel ever like it was for some people, but I liked the authors’ style and I couldn’t wait to get more. But as soon as I started 99 PERCENT MINE it just didn’t sit well with me.
I know we can’t always love all characters because there can be some variety in personalities in fiction and protagonists. But I can’t like a book if I don’t like the main character, or at least that character doesn’t grow on me. I seriously disliked Darcy, our main heroine. It started from the very beginning and it just didn’t change throughout. She was incredibly immature, self centered and unnecessarily emo. I had to feel bad about Tom because he’s actually a really sweet and nice guy and I feel for him having to end up dealing with Darcy forever and ever.
Aside from disliking the main character, the writing felt very choppy to me. The dialogue at times was over the top, the inner dialogue would drive me insane. I don’t want to get into some of the specifics of what bothered me because it would be a little spoilery. But I really didn’t find much to redeem this book in my opinion.
I guess all those things combined made for a reading experience that I couldn’t get into and even though I finished this book, hoping it would get better, it never got to a happy note for me.
