My Rating: No rating
It would be unfair for me to give this one a rating, when I couldn't even make it to the 30% mark.
- Koti was sexy, charming, playful and entertaining.
- All Blacks. This has All Blacks in it.
- The first chapter was intriguing. Not in-your-face-threatening, it had the anticipation of a threat down to a fine art.
- That heroine is a dickhead. I get she has backstory, but I prefer a character who has some joy and... spark! This one is negative, forces her opinions onto others (including her friends) vocally and openly when she has no idea what she's talking about, and puts her own toxic spin on everything around her. I couldn't stand her. The scene where she rips Koti a new one because he's on 'her beach'? Get this heroine out of my book!
And anyway, it is not her beach. We don't give our foreshore & seabed to tourists, lady... our government already took it off us, thankyouverymuch.
This book is not happening for me. Whatever happens in the next 180 pages, I hope it involves Koti finding a delightful, free spirited woman and having cute Koti babies because in my head, he looks like this, and thus - the world needs to carry on his genetic perfection.
