Hungry for you?
on 4 October 2012
Okay, when I first heard about this book, it was on a review online and it told me how funny and sweet it was and how Id be swooning pretty much all the time... didn't happen.
The story is about Alex, the last sister yet to be mated and Cale, older than god immortal.
Sam, Alexs sister, has been trying to get her to meet her lifemate for months and when Marguriette says that she has a good feeling about Cale, she rushes to set something up.
When Alex's restaraunt has yet another emergency and can't make it, Sam lies and says that Cale is a chef and send him over so the two can meet. Cale can't stand food and has never cooked in his life, but after realising that Alex is his lifemate, he will do anything to hang around her.
There are some funny moments and sweet ones, but they just don't make the cut, which is dissapointing since I am a huge fan of the series.
What annoyed me is that whenever they ran into a problem with Alex, out came the mind control and, though Cale glared over it, he didn't stop it. Even after they slept together Bricker went into her mind and soothed her fears so she would be more open to the relationship. That's when I started to resent characters Id loved so much in earlier books. Even Marguriette who controlled Alex and wouldn't even let her stand up and one point!!
How could Alex ever really be choosing him when they were playing around in her head so much and be complete jackass' about it. Even bricker who is kind of friends with her.
Her sister, Sam, who I loved in her book, I wanted to slap. She lies about Cales cooking abilities, risking her sisters buisness, let's them run around controlling her and has been lying to her for months and then just shrugs it off as it was for her own good.
And who did I want to hit most of all? Alex.
After everything that has happened and the trautmatising way she discovered Cale's secret, she just takes a nap and suddenly she's okay with it and want's to be with him forever.... Yes, you read that right. Then when he leaves to go fight the bad guy (because that's what big strong men do) she just sweeps her anger and resentment for it under the rug. It was all written like a really bad cheesy romance novel and like she was just rushing through the story, which I have never read from her series before. Normally it is well written, funny and even with all of the unbelievable things happening around them, the characters reactions were believable.
This book was a let down, I had hoped it would be more from her past books.
