I SMELL YET ANOTHER DIRTY GREAT BIG BLOGGING RAT...IT STINKS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breathless (Jesse Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This "book", (I use the term loosely) spent more time describing a sex scene with a one nightstand, (well technically half a blow job in a car), than it did the getting together of the 2 main characters. Not something that had me on the side of team Jesse. It then went on to blame his behaviour on a motorcross accident, which meant that he could no longer ride...boo hoo...I so felt for him...not. He apparently also has a split personality, as the same bloke who comes out with sick making lines such as, "Follow your heart, the past is history, and tomorrow, well tomorrow is just a mystery"...(get me a bucket)...also has the following oh so poetic lines and actions, when talking to the love of his life..." 'Last time I checked I had a dick. That's a girl's drink. Real men drink beer or Jack Daniels'...He grabbed his crotch and jiggled his hand as witness to his words"....
What an absolute charmer, and obviously made me think, gosh, he's a keeper, I do hope they get together! Seriously WTF?
These are just a very few examples of the intolerably ridiculous, immature phrases, dialogue and situations throughout the book...it's absolutely riddled with them.
Then there were the many instances of using half a page to describe something, making you think it must have some significance, for it then to be left completely. The most disturbing of these was when the main character imagines using a broken beer bottle to slit her wrists...for no apparent reason and with no explanation as to why...then it was left, as if the author had moved onto a different story in her head for a few minutes, then got back on track???
Added into the messy mix was the misuse of words, (please look up the meaning of words such as prosaic before trying and failing to use them in context, it's embarrassing), along with terrible grammar, over descriptive drawn out for the sake of it text and horrible editing.
As you have probably gathered, I absolutely hated it.
Yet another utterly abysmal book with an amazingly high number of 5 star reviews. Check out the 1 and 2 star reviews on amazon.com for a more realistic picture. Honestly the widespread and ridiculous practice of giving so many shiny 5 star reviews to what can only be described as complete sh***, is beyond getting on my nerves.
This is one of what has unfortunately become a long list of so called books that has been bigged up by bloggers, causing unsuspecting and genuine readers to waste their precious time, money and life on dross. It's beneath contempt to me now.
On the plus side it was free, on the minus side it's a part of my life I'll never get back...if you're an honest reader with scruples, self respect and a brain, just don't do it.
