hi all i just found this book at my thrift store for $3. I heard the rave reviews and thought i'd check it out as it was suppossed to be very angsty. I can't get through it. It's contemporary which I don't like but even if you take that away I really didn't like her writing. She mentioned a bet between the two leading characters and after page 100 although it had been referred to I didn't know what the bet was. Whole days would pass between two pages and you only knew about it because someone mentioned that they went to sleep. I didn't like how the heroine kept eyeing the guys' tattoos and didn't really describe them. ALso I didn't like that the heroines' best friend is named america and everyone calls her mare.....like she's a horse. SO I got to page 100 and decided I would add it to my pile of books that I'm trying to sell. I wanted to see if anyone else experienced this with this book. Can anyone else think of a romance novel that was hyped up that they ended up hating? If anyone has any suggestions for angsty romances where the guy isn't too nice to the heroine let me know i love recommendations.
