Don’t be deceived by the cover, I have no idea why a plus size women wouldn’t be the cover model, seeing that Justices, “abundant cures” are described and talked about, she is even called fat, she wears a size 18. This is just my personal opinion, if your going to put ppl on the cover then they need to at least resemble the characters in the story. And the ugly nose ring, ugh, Justice don’t even have one. The cover is so weird to me after reading the book, but I don’t hold that against the author at all but I hope next time, pick ppl that fit the description of the characters, got my imagination all messed up..
The story was interesting enough but the dialogue really kills this one for me. Along with much of the story that left me scratching my head and the lack of description, I thought that much of it wasn't all that believable. I loved the accent that came across when reading from Brody's perspective but there wasn't enough explained, like what certain words meant in regular plan ole English. That wouldn't have been so bad on its own, but then when reading the words he and Justice exchange, I don't know what the heck happened. Like how out of the conversation I'd read that they went from almost being intimate to Justice storming off. I read the words on the page but was baffled. The confusion this caused me wasn't due to a failure to get culturally different speech patterns and references but because the dialogue, like the story at times, jumps from A to C without carrying me there with words or impression. I thought the emotions were often lacking or didn't really add up and Justice's resistance to Brody's insistent, filthy mouthed propositions lasted like a day. Not a negative the filthy mouth but rolled my eyes at how Justice said she wasn't "easy" when the sentiment didn't outlast the flavor on fruit stripe gum.
Brody's family is wild, or perhaps better described, crazy. Off just a little bit and hard to understand in the context of family that I'm used to and used to reading about. Again, not a negative but more different. I liked them for the most part even when left puzzled over some things here and there. The family violence wasn't an issue for me but wasn't quite buying the mafia theme or their tough personas.
The absolute worst thing about this book though to me is that I really want to read Leith's and Chevelle's story but given as how I couldn't appreciate the writing in this book, I can't bring myself to pick up another one. And I'm often iffy at best when it comes to reading the stories of other characters in a series.
