I read this book about a year ago and even then when I wasn’t a blogger, nor was I even thinking about becoming an author, this book still fell flat to me. I’m not the kind of reader that believed in a HEA, nor am I the type of author to believe that I have to add a HEA at the end of my books so everyone is happy because…well, here’s the deal, I like to have my books relate to life. Because in like so we rarely get a HEA, I don’t believe it should be that way in books and movies because…it just makes it so much more UNRELATABLE.
And if it’s not relatable the WHAT THE HECK is the point of reading? Well, maybe there’s there’s a point for you guys but all I’m saying is it didn’t work for this one.
THAT ENDING…. and the CRAP LOAD OF CRAPTASTICAL CRAP (excuse my French) that happened in this book was just too much.
There were a lot of eye rolling moments in which I went from WTH, to OKAY..WTH, WHY. WHY??
I get the fact that Jude and Lucy need to have time apart because he’s this famous football player and all but….*snores*
2. The predictability.
New Adult and it’s darn predictability made it to where I could smell what was about to happen from like, I don’t know, one-hundred-gazillion miles away…. GRRR.
3. If there’s anything that I’m really starting to HATE about NA, it’s the amount of cliches and aggravating characters that come with it. So much so that it doesn’t even come to me as a surprise anymore….
For those of you that read Adult books, do you guys see any differences between these and NA? I’m kinda considering switching over for a little bit.♥
