I am currently trying to read this book. I am failing miserably. It's AWFUL. It's my first Kasey Michaels book and I was excited to read it. I love baseball, baseball players, and an unexpected pregnancy bringing a couple together. I also like a good plot, a well written story and realistic dialoug. This book has has none of the last three things.
It drags. It drags like you are pulling a semi truck up a hill at one of those strong man competitions. Only, you are not the strong man. I don't understand why Suzanna agreed to marry Tim. They don't seem compatible and I am not particulalry fond of them. But, I could get over that.
The thing that drives me absolutely NUTS about this book is THE DIALOUG. There is TOO MUCH TALKING. For example, Tim has a nightmare. The reader is told what the nightmare is while Tim is experiencing it. Then, Tim awakens and describes the nightmare to his roommate in painful detail that the reader was just given a few paragraphs ealier. It wasn't necessary. It added nothing. I got the picture the first time.
And if that weren't bad enough, the characters seriously, used the name of the person they were talking to EVERYTIME THEY SAID SOMETHING. For example, Tim and Suzanna are the only too people in the room. THE ONLY ONES. They are alone. And EVERYTIME one of them says something, they address it to the other. It would be like my husband and I were having dinner alone and I needed the salt. Were we talking as they do in the book, my husband would look at me and ask"Indigo, could you pass the salt?" and I would respond, "Why of course, Paul"
People DO NOT talk like that. And they don't just do it once either, it's EVERYTIME they talk. It's really obnoxious. The editor should have said something.
