I'm "overcome with desire" to put this book down and never read it again.
Reviewed in the United States on June 23, 2016
I REALLY don't understand why this is a best seller. INCREDIBLY slow, and the entire book is about 90% overly dramatic, descriptive language, and only 10% actual story. There is a ridiculous overabundance of phrases like "I was overcome by emotion", "emotion washed over me", "I gazed into his eyes", and "the emotion was so intense". Yeah, we get it, you're emotional. But taking five pages to tell us how he looked at you is over the top and I was bored very quickly. The male lead is one-dimensional and at no time did I feel any connection between them, because their interactions are limited to glances and short conversations, which the author continues to describe as "so intense". I'm 'overcome with the intense desire' to put this book down and never read it again.
