I'm a bookworm, hiker, warrior and tyrant. I read all genres of romance. When not reading, you can find me engaged in general acts of mischief, trolling museums and daydreaming.
Overall Rating - 4
Hero - 4 - basic good guy
Heroine - 4 - the trivial stuff that floated around in her head was a hoot
Laugh Factor - 4 - I had some laugh out loud moments
Sob Factor - 0 - no tears in this one
Angst Factor - 3 - heroine was back and forth on what she wanted quite a bit
Romance - 4 - slow build, not insta-love
Heat Level - 2 - talk of doing it, thoughts of doing it, all fade to black
Ending - 4 - not a cliffhanger - nice HEA

You know that saying that goes "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"?
That's me with Kristen Ashley books. I'm nuts.
I really liked the first couple of ones I read. Then they started turning into what felt like the same shit over and over again. Characters cut from the same mold. Guys saying "yeah" at the end of sentences. Mainly after "you feel me?" Yeah?
And I kept occasionally buying high rated ones thinking "THIS time, it will be different."
And I really bonked myself in the forehead with this one after the umpteenth time reading Tack talk about Tyra's greedy pussy. You feel me? Yeah?
DNF at 50%.

Man, oh man, how many times can people "damn" each other? Damn you! Damn you all! Damn it all to hell! Oh, and there is also the thinking of damning someone as in "Damn you!
