escaping reality one book at a time
Okay, see, here's the thing. The minute I say something like "I don't squee" or "I don't fangirl" or "I don't do gifs", I find myself doing those things not long after. I should have known better when I said "I don't rate with half stars". Look up! Do you see what I've done? There are some books that just turn me into a big "liar, liar, pants on fire". This one is latest to join that club.
I was just torn. I liked this book, but I thought it was better than 3 stars, but 4 stars seemed to high. Eh, anyway.
This is definitely not a book you can just pick up for the hell of it. Reading the first in the series is a must and I don't think it will cost you anything but the couple of hours to read it. I believe its still free. Fair warning, though, if you do read the first one, you will either be all "WTF was that? And it just ends?" or you will be all "Did I really waste my time on this?"
I'll be honest, I was all, "WTF". I did have some issues with the first that were missing in #2, so YAY!
This is definitely not a work of fine literature, but it is funny as hell. Let me start by telling you what you can expect.
1. Millionaire man-whore with a penchant for women's underwear.
2. Millionaire brat sibling rivalry.
3. Stalker with a mental illness.
4. Wayward twenty-something girl with a verbally abusive mother.
5. Cougars with waiters in closets.
6. A pair of "zebra striped" undies.
This one picks up right where the last one stopped and Marissa's mindset has completely changed in a matter of hours. She had been in self-pity mode, singing the "woe is me" song, but all of a sudden she has a backbone and is taking up for herself. Personally, I think the thong laced with "skank juice" may have had something to do with it.
This time around the things that were coming out of Marissa's mouth were priceless.
Xander, Xander, Xander. He is like the love-able little mischief maker that no matter what he does, he always ends up in a precarious situation. You just can't get mad at him.
And we meet Liam. Whew! I was left wondering what his weird fetish would be.
And now, soon as I get my mess together, I'll be reading #3.
