I liked the title of this book so much and when I saw the Evanovich name, I thought I'd give it a try. I wasn't expecting classic literature, but I REALLY wasn't expecting smut either.
Thirty minutes into the book, I turned it off. It. Was That. Bad. I just couldn't handle the longest sex scene in history any longer. A couple weeks later, I thought I'd try again, just in case. I mean, my Audible books are valuable to me! Made it another ten minutes before I pressed the button and turned it off for good.
Writing was very, very basic. Nothing special at all. Story line was non-existent. Characters made me cringe and want to run away.
This book has absolutely nothing, save its title, to recommend it. Save your Audible credit for something worthy.
What creativity from Edward Kelsey Moore! Loved the image (literal and figurative!) of Eleanor Roosevelt! The characters were quirky, fun and REAL. I felt like I could run into one of them on the street and know exactly who it was.
Story was interesting and pacing moved along well. It wasn't packed with action, but that totally worked for me since I adore character-based literature.
I'll definitely be looking for other works by Moore.
The story line has promise, but it just goes on and on and on. I'm well into the second half and I feel like the story should be getting somewhere. But the main character, Vivian, just goes through the same routine over and over again. She doesn't grow or learn, nor does she seem to want to. As a result, the reader must muddle through her agonizingly bad decisions. There's one single thread of the story that I'm interested in reading the conclusion, but I don't think I can bring myself to continue the story. It's. That. Painful.
