    Would you try another book from Morgan Rice and/or Brianna Knickerbocker?

    I would possibly try purely out of curiousity. If Morgan Rice ended the book so abruptly just to get you to read the next, then kudos to her. Goal achieved. If the ending was suppose to be a "good stopping point" then I think she needs rethink her writing career.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Morgan Rice? Why or why not?

    Again, only out of curiousity, but I'm not in a hurry.


    Did Brianna Knickerbocker do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did an good enough job. Sometimes she could've picked up the speed of her narration, but otherwise I think she did good for the tone of the book.


    Did Turned inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, to write this review.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot wasn't all that bad, but the author tried so hard to make a mystery, that she forgot to also give us some answers in the same book. The main character got a bit irritating after a while, but the story ended before I truly got the urge to mentally b-slap her for being so stupid.

    Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom. But before his mother died, he promised her he’d grow up to be a good man, so he needs a stable career and a good husband, not a dead-end job and empty sex.

    What disappointed you about Special Delivery?

    The whole book. I had to deal with over 9 hours before the "falling in love" part finally showed up. It had so much angst and sluttiness that it just ended up pissing me off. I expected a romance, as the description implied.


    Has Special Delivery turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was probably the only thing I could stomach.
