What a let down.

This is one of those books that pushed all my buttons. I'll admit I have a few pet peeves regarding some plot points, and this book has one of the big ones.

Pregnant Heroines:

I hate this cliche with a purple passion. What in the hell are these author’s thinking? Endless pages of pregnancy symptoms — from the meant to be funny food cravings to hormones that make the heroine feel like she’s in heat. Seriously? Is this supposed to be sexy? Inevitably, the hero starts acting like a caveman because she has a bun in the oven. And the woman is incapable of common sense, loses the ability to stand upright, and cannot exhibit any sense of self preservation —and because she’s overly emotional, she becomes a punchline. Often, she needs to be carried from room to room by the hero, just in case she forgets how to walk.

What’s most disappointing is how these cliches are old saws from 50’s sitcoms, originally written by MEN, come back to haunt us in the writing of WOMEN.

The truth is, pregnant women are fierce. My aerobic instructor lifted weights and taught classes until the week she delivered. Pregnancy does not render a woman stupid, helpless or infirm. If anything it makes us stronger. We are never more powerful than when we are bringing life into the world. But you’d never know it from reading some of the stupid things that WOMEN writers write about the experience of pregnancy in RH’s. Sorry about the rant.

Which brings me to this book. After loving the first three books (though less and less with each successive installment) this book is an epic fail. Within the first 3 chapters or so, an MC comes up preggers after an awful one night stand. LIGHT SPOILERS:

After that, we spend the rest of the book watching this train wreck unfold. The girl is sweet, naive, and in lurv with a one dimensional victim of arrested development. The guy is selfish. Period. And however much we are meant to believe he undergoes a change of heart before the HEA, the fact is, he’s a withholding A-hole, and I regret having spent time with him in any capacity. Don’t tell me how gorgeous the guy is, or how much she loves him — I don’t care. I don’t have any respect for either character given the situation they were in and how they behaved.

But the writer thinks this is a romance because she made the girl pregnant in the story. That somehow makes it okay that he banged her and then ran out on her, and only came back when he realized — and this is important — that he couldn’t get it up with any other woman. HUH. “My dick thinks you own it.” were his exact words. Therefore, “we need to give this a chance.”

Really? If you find that romantic, enjoy. There’s plenty more where that came from in this one.

Not recommended unless you’re a pregnancy fetishist.

High Expectations for Book 4

Although it was not as good as book 2 (which was by far my favorite), it was still excellent. Worth the wait. I agree with the other reviewers, it could have been longer, but I will listen to it again and isn't that the true test of a good book.If fact I would probably be going back to restart the series if there were not so many other good books released today too!
