Thia is prim and proper.
Bear is leather and lawless.
It will never work between them.
It's a lie they almost believe...
It is necessary to first read King and Tyrant to fully enjoy Lawless.
Let me just start by saying - I fucking hated it. I have DNF'd several books, and this book makes me want to go back, apologize, and re-write all my reviews. Amend all my 1 star ratings to a 2 or 3, and send a sorry message to those authors.
Because Jesus Christ, what is going on here?
So if I have to name one thing I loved, I guess it would be the premise of Bear. Not Bear as he is in this book, but the idea of Bear from the 2 books in the series before this one.
With one hand splayed under the hem of my shirt against my bare stomach he breathed into my ear, "Stop asking so many questions," he said, the tip of his tongue barely making contact with my skin but sending a flush of wetness between my legs.
"Just answer me why," I said. It came out as a whisper.
As a beg.
I didn't leave out any punctuation. The story came to me that way, and that sucked ass.
Also, the heroine was ridiculously stupid. From page 10 she was stupid, and she was still stupid at page whatever page this ended.
There is only three sets of prints...
And then, on top of the difficult writing and frustrating grammar, I had to deal with insta-love, a connection that made no sense to me as a reader, run on sentences, and misunderstandings.
All of that made me want to DNF, so when you add to that the totally unnecessary, gratuitous use of violence, anal rape (of very central characters) and torture that seemingly comes out of fucking nowhere, I just didn't get it.
The storyline was weak, the OTT violence was stupid and transparent and manipulative, the relationship between the hero and heroine wasn't believable, and the heroine was a moron.
The first time this couple hook up.
Seriously, I haven't hated a book this hard since ever. I actually should make this my second review of the year, because I don't want to start 2017 with a book I didn't like.
Incidentally, I unfollowed 7 of my favourite reviewers because they rated this one 5 stars. I feel like there is no way someone could rate this 5 stars for the editing and spelling alone. It made me sad.
