My Rating: 2 stars out of 5
Genre: New adult, erotica
I went in to this thinking it will be a better version of ‘Stepbrother Dearest’ but I think I was sort of disappointed as it didn’t exactly meet all it’s expectations. I’m all for taboo story lines but this was just so…. ‘meh’. It wasn’t bad but it didn’t exactly have me feeling ‘oh my God this book is so good.’ Like I said, it was very ‘meh’.
For one I think it lacked feeling. I was unable to connect with Katherine as much as I wished I could. All they do throughout the book is get at it like bunnies and it gets kinda boring you know? I mean I get it, they’re attracted to each other but gheez there’s more to attraction then just that. I would have liked more scenes which had deeper meaning to them. I honestly did not understand the attraction, expect for that it was just there.
The only thing I liked was Caulter and his banter. That man does not give a sh*t about saying whatever is on his mind. He will say the crudest things, sorry but it was highly entertaining and probably the only thing that I found entertaining. And their ‘I hate you’s’ and getting back at each other. Man the idea of it all was pretty brilliant, but then it just went down hill you know? I don’t know how to explain it any better.
It could have been made more taboo I reckon. More dramatic may be? More connection between Katherine and Caulter. Then it would have been something I would have loved. It’s a shame this didn’t work out for me but I’m just another reader with her own opinion right? I’m sure others out there will love it. Just not for me unfortunately.
