5/5/14 – Alessandra Torre – Still – 3.5 stars
Quote Love: “Meaning,” he growls, “that if I have you, you will be mine. You will not return to life as you know it. You will not flirt with men around the water cooler at work. You will bend for me, spread for me, allow me to have every inch of your surface, all while screaming my name and shuddering into my heart. That is what I mean.”
What I liked: I liked the main characters for the most part. I thought this was a really great set up for whatever is going to happen for these two down the road. It didn’t feel too short or like there wasn’t a conclusion to the novella. I liked the build up to tha massive explosion of hotness. As well as that alpha of a man! Yum!
What could have been better: Well… I’m kind of tired of the Sweet Home Alabama, hey y’all, I’m from the South thing. That’s just me though. I just think there is far more to the culture than is usually shown in the books. It makes Southerners look far less dynamic than they can be. I love a coma in my papers, it often gets me in trouble… but in a book I need you to commit to a period a little more. Also, it was quite repetitive at times.
