A tiresome and unnecessary amount of sex and dirty talk. When I thought one sex scene was finally over, the next chapter had another. The main conflict between the main characters did not make any sense to me. They broke up suddenly and I really have no ideas why. And, the homophobic antagonists who are are the source of almost all the conflict are conveniently swept away with almost no explanation except a suggestion one character's father (who also appears suddenly) did something. A weak story.
I didn't really think I'd like this so much. The set up and story description sounded like it might have been a big pile of cliché. But the characters (main & others) are just memorable. I listened to the whole thing in one go.
A con job, swindle, & revenge story... A fast paced adventure with strong characters and a lot of twist and turns!
I don't mind light-hearted, instantly forgettable silliness.These are much better examples of the genre: Jane Carver of Waar, Space Captain Smith, My Sparkling Misforture. But this book and its characters... even if they are stereotypes and generic as they should be, are not memorable in any way. None of the characters exist to me, they make no impression and are like tools to propel the plot. And the plot is so unimportant (which in silly books is a given but this book isn't any fun.) It could have been constructed by a third grader during playtime.
The Book might be good but the production makes it sound like a mediocre podcast. And the narrator reminds me of an over-enthusiastic high school drama student.
Good. I needed to giggle like a little boy and this book was just the ticket.
John Keats, a compulsive rhymer and nitwit romantic, was a great sidekick and added some surreal dialogue.
He made the book for me. I'm not sure if I'd have found it so funny without his deadpan and hilarious performance.
The beginning was confusing but once I got passed the first chapter.
I really liked this book. It is an enjoyable screwball comedy.
Yes. The two main characters are funny and resourceful. I enjoyed them and fell in love with them.
The 11 year old girl, Tip and the alien, J-Lo are great for very different reasons.
Yes! and Yes again.
Listen to it.
The story is adequate but the dynamics of the two as depicted through this book & the three follow-ups is amazing. Two men with hang-ups and complicated personalities but who, despite their own intentions, are sexy as hell to each other and to the reader.
I haven't finished this book yet but I'm so excited to get more of this story. Book 1 was amazing and this book has the same narrator so I'm expecting a lot. I hope Book 3 comes online soon.
Not really. A lot of very traumatic events are solved by kinds words and sex. I found the relationship which solves the main characters problems to be almost abusive. A cop having sex with a victim [esp with the age difference] was kinda creepy and about the last thing needed by the rape victim/prostitute.
I can tell what wasn't my favorite. The cop seduces the teen victim by pretending to be a weird customer for his services in a dark motel room. There is just so much wrong with that.
