A little much.

Ok, so I was getting very irritated with the way Jess was back and forth with Mason. Seemed like she was tempting him all the time, with trying to seduce him then turn around and tell him to stop. I know she was sexually abused by her evil step "uncle" but come on!!!! I don't see why she would pick this topic and then have an ancient angel have patience to put up with this. Grrr! Believe me, I get it because I was sexually abused when I was little but I don't want to read about it throughout the entire book! Almost stopped reading it but I want to know the end. Hopefully, this will not continue in the next book!! For the love of God.....please stop the abuse line and let Mason have his Jess without have blue balls constantly.

A Big Disappointment

The first book held out some promise as a sci-fi/fantasy novel. Alas, all that potential disintegrated into a sad and sloppy pile of pre-pubescent romantic drivel. Of the twenty+ chapters included in this novel, about four actually focus on the primary storyline, the others are little more than preteen romantic angst. Does he love me, do I love him, why is he mad, and on and on.
Poor and inadequate character development, story development, and sad plot mechanisms, rather than skilled storytelling.
Don’t waste your time, unless you’ve used your credits on real writing, and just need some filler until the next one drops.

Conflating premarital Sex, ...

...foul use of God’s name in vain, and invoking the hated-by-God org responsible for nearly 50Million unborn babies murdered, is the height of arrogance. No one should even unwittingly mingle Holy Scripture’s stories w/the willful disrespect of the One true God’s hatred of hands that shed innocent blood.

Just okay

The author missed the mark on this one. The stop go stop go wanna make love is so cliche at best, especially with all the flirting. The kissing scenes are just lame. Just remove all of the lame yearnings and cold showers. I am annoyed at the immaturity of the romance. The rest of the plot seems okay, but it was predicable to figure out what would happen next.

Lousy book, perfect narration..


So, I didn't like this book at all. The author filled the whole thing with Jess wanting to have sex with Mason and being afraid, all the freakin' time. There was nothing going on in this book except thoughts of sex and Mason's cold showers. And Jess getting her first kiss then spending the rest of the book kissing Mason. Jeez, the way they talk and act it reads like a 16 year old heroine and a 30 year old hero. It was reaching the point of stupidity.

Also, I really, really didn't get the purpose in what the author did to John Austin. That was uncalled for.

There was no swearing, but an overabundance of wanting and desire, page after page after page, that led nowhere. I hope the next book isn't anything like this one or I won't be finishing it.

As to the narration: Fabulous! Brittany Pressley gives everyone their own voice but the ones she gives to Faison and JoJo is just phenomenal.
