On the review of "Twisted" the last installment of Kate and Drew, I couldn't write (and spoiler) a few things that annoyed me and made me a bit reluctant to read this one. Yet we had "Tamed" in the middle so I actually forgot how much I disliked "Twisted" and just HOW MUCH I should be worried of this one.
Lets start with a side note before I forget to mention it. Tattoos. I LOVE tattoos, they're great, they're sexy, they're fun (not during, naturally.. after they are done..), I have a few myself and I'm contemplating my next ones.. YET there is nothing more terrible than a name tattoo. In "Twisted" Drew got a tattoo of "Kate". REALLY? I'll ask that again Drew style - R-E-A-L-L-Y-?
So that's the way the book started for me, with a reminder of that stupid tattoo. But it continued and the WORST THING EVER happened and the thing I was worried THE MOST after "Twisted". It's like my family get together nowadays compared to 10 years ago. It's all about the freaking KIDS! In this one, it's all about the baby.. James.. If there is something I'm NOT interested in a romance is how to be a good parent. Especially as I listen to my neighbor's kids having a laugh and a cry in the house above my apartment. So I thought, well, this is about the wedding, the week in Vegas! Let's just skim through the first or maybe second chapter especially as they are also speaking of strippers in bachelor's parties and should they - yay or nay. I say NAY. There is nothing more disgusting than that. Sorry to be the party pooper. Just this weekend I had a conversation with a good friend about it. Why is this thing necessary really? and in this book specifically since except for one guy everyone is "coupled".. Uber disgusting! :/
Well, never mind, I said I'm moving on to the more interesting staff. OK, we're out of the apartment GREAT one step into going AWAY from any kid. WRONG. Another boring chapter of Alexandra's kids with the MAJOR HIGHLIGHT - There's a Great Dane in the picture! His name is Bear! :) Too bad he is a stupid Great Dane who isn't even house broken.. Well, at least while reading that MY Great Dane was snuggling unto me which he hardly ever does, at least not for long. So I told myself, lets see how long he stays (since I WON'T move if he is being so cute!) the plot will get interesting soon, right? wrong, AGAIN. Another family gathering, not interesting, babies/kiddies included.
Then, Eric, my Great Dane moved. He had enough and I felt like so did I. 31%. That was it for me. We haven't gotten to Vegas yet I needed a break.
This was a TOTAL bore for me. The first book was GREAT! the third of Matthew and Dee as well! But sadly both "Twisted" and this one didn't hold me, not at all. I feel like there was really no need for more books after the first one for Kate and Drew. The second one was all about the misunderstanding and them having a baby and this one I don't know what it's suppose to be about but I feel like a couple who is 4 years together doesn't need "more". They are an established couple and more misunderstandings, mistakes or whatever are simply not needed and adding kids to the mix doesn't make it a romance it makes it a family oriented I'm not even sure how to call it since I NEVER read anything of this kind.
I'm sure people who are into kiddies and love those books with misunderstandings which aren't really "angsty" (I mean, I don't think anyone will die.. from reading the previous ones..) will enjoy this one, but for me, this was a total miss.
