UGH poorly written
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2019
This was the worst! I hate that I spent money on this book based on so many great reviews. I don’t know what book the reviewers read, but this was trite, repetitive, overly simplistic BAD writing. The characters would wax poetical about their hopes and dreams and then say or do exactly the opposite, or they would go on and on in their thoughts about how great things were, then talk about what a horrible week it had been. Nobody seemed to have parents, but had one grandfather in the picture; the main character had his niece because his sister had died, but no mention was ever made of her having had a father. The story contradicted itself several times, and the characters acted like angsty teenagers! A dog ate a sock, had to have surgery, and then was running around happily within a couple of hours, despite supposedly having its stomach cut open, and was eating. People were constantly rolling around in the grass with the dog, but nobody ever accidentally rolled in poo. The main characters jumped into bed together by approximately their third date, but the female thought to herself that she was glad they “waited so long.” I have news - that’s not very long! The male lead was careful to use condoms whenever they had sex - but all of a sudden, some woman shows up with his baby, the product of a one night stand 3 years ago. Apparently his condoms were reserved for the woman he LOVED. OH, and this “baby” of over 2 years old evidently was unable to talk, and was “tiny” so that they passed him around like an infant. PLEASE don’t waste your money like I did!
