Keira is the most needy, whining, constantly worrying, immature (while faking maturity) female character I've read so far by Ivy Smoak. How any female could possibly consider doing the ridiculous things she did to get Rory to notice her, already knowing he was a manwhore that she had basically just met, but although she's not a one night stand kind of girl she became a whore for him??!! Wait, what??? Come on, really??? Totally implausible. Totally not the real world of slam bam. No I'm not bitter, just realistic with my fiction. Seriously. For the majority of the book I couldn't wait for it to be over, please let it end. Rory and friends appear briefly in one of the books (great books!) with James and Penny Hunter and from that I had higher hopes (because I trust Penny's judgment and good taste you see), but no luck. Sorry Ms Smoak, this one was a disappointment but I still love you and will continue reading your books. Hopefully this was just an early practice novel that went to print after your bestsellers. Thanks for trying. Three stars for the final third of the book and Connor who was my favorite character in it.
Okay, so this story was well written, and Keira was so totally adorable, but I hate books when the male lead continues to hookup with other people after they've hooked up, while she is just pining over him. I was totally rooting for her and Connor, he was the real hero of the book.
Boy loves girl and all his friends get involved. It’s a no holds barred and poorly written there is no story line except the two main characters having sex in every room. I guess I just can’t relate to this genre as I’m just a little old fashioned and need the people to act there ages at 29! Not my genre and please don’t send this author again.
I normally a huge fan of Ivy Smoake’s books but this one wasn’t a favorite. Kiera (the heroine) is in need of a new roommate after losing another to marriage. Rory (the hero) answers her ad. After horrible interviews with all the women who answered she picks Rory to be her roomie even though she’s attracted to him. They make a pact to just be friends but Kiera immediately starts trying to get him to fall for her even though he’s told her he doesn’t want a relationship. There are some funny parts in the book & I think it was a good plot but Kiera is super annoying and immature. Rory in my opinion is just an attractive sleazeball having slept with over 100 women. The HEA was quite rushed. I would like to have seen more substance to both of the leads.
All while reading this book, it was impossible to stop comparing it to a movie where a girl tries to get a guy to break up with her and he tries to win her over. While this book was by no means identical to that and roles were reversed, the connection still seemed bedded within the subtext of the story.
The relationship between the heroine and Rory’s best friend seemed more genuine than the ones between the two leads. Reading the dialogue between them was easier and more enjoyable. It seemed like she had to stay with Rory because she was attracted to him first. The story might have been better if she let Rory go and went out with the best friend. Sometimes the nice or nicer guy is truly a better choice. The conversation between these characters was better developed along with their general relationship.
However, the novel came across a bit unpolished. It lacked refinery and read more like a rough draft that a final copy.
This book was in parts so let me break it down for you .... Part 1 started off good but somehow went into a downward spiral of cringy awkwardness, the h is completely in her head and overthinks EVERYTHING. I almost stopped reading but after looking at some other reviews I kept going as they promised it would get better......and it did about halfway through part 2. So you have half of part 2 and all of part 3 to make up for the cringe in part 1. The other thing I didn't really like was it was a sole POV you never have anything from H and I didn't really like that. Try and push through and you will end up with a pretty good story.
I liked the concept of this story, but the execution could have been better. It started out somewhat humorous, but slowly started to confuse me. There were times that Keira had my head spinning, so I know Rory's was. ++small spoiler-Like the time Rory is taking a shower behind a locked door. Keira finds a key and invades his shower, but when he reacts to her, she freaks out and makes it look like he is in the wrong++. Too many of these silly scenes. Only reason I gave this 3 stars is because the last 5 chapters. I liked how it ended.
For a romantic reading: 1 of 5 For an erotic reading: 3 of 5 For a "buffer" while reading heavy stuff: 3 of 5
The storyline gets over-the-top around half the book. I expected the sex scenes to sparse after they got together but it didnt, and I found that refreshing at least for my experience reading this kind of book. Overall the author impressed me with the erotic scenes and I can see myself reading more of them.. with buffering purposes of course :)
