I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Were She Belongs

Were She Belongs - Dixie Lynn Dwyer Well, I wish I could say that this was a book I could just plow through and love. But it was a chore to get through. It wasn't just the the characters are flat and blend together, it was also the heroine wasn't someone I was rooting for to get with the guys. I actually had hoped she'd escape these neanderthals. It was hard to sit through. They wanted her complete obedience, her submission and they wanted it on their terms. They wanted to do away with everything that made her strong and survive. Don't get me wrong, they admired that about her until -until- she was strong against them and not a woman who was willing to basically become a slave to do as she was told no matter what. I wish I could say the men were hunks and were enough to keep reading, but truth be told, they were the reason I wanted to throw the book through a window.

This could have been amazing. But for me it fell apart fast and had no chance of winning me over. There are very few instances where I wish I could get my money back. This is one of them, unfortunately.
