If the narrator wasn’t as good as she was, I don’t know if I would have made it through true book.
This book is a great lesson of the importance of exposition. Because I had no idea what was going on at the beginning of the story, and I didn’t get any of who these characters were, I never really cared about them. Even a small scene of What’s His Name riding into town to the shock of Cat at the beginning would have done more to set up the tension . Even all through the many, many, MANY details and events, I still didn’t feel like I sympathized with the characters, particularly Cat. She is seriously unlikeable. I know it’s supposed to be a retelling of Taming if the Shrew, but c’mon. She wasn’t a shrew. She was downright bitchy for no good reason. And who was the villain? Morgan or Walker? I was about halfway through before I realized they were two different people.
This story was too long. And I’ve read Gone With the Wind. Just when you’re ready for the story to end, some skanky ex pops up and needs rescuing. What?! Just end already! The sex scenes weren’t bad, and the writing overall wasn’t bad, except for some seriously ridiculous lines (“a kiss meant to hurt” WTF?!) and I think, with some editing, it would be a decent story. Would I read something else by this author? Maybe.
this book was well written and performed fairly well. The characters were great and I look forward to hearing about them in more books to come. She wrapped up a story but left it open for more which is always great
