The Book Lovers Codex

I am a twenty-something, happily married, mother of one who loves books. I love reading them. I love looking at them. I love their smell. Libraries and bookstores are my holy places... No I'm not being blasphemous. Books are my religion and if you don't like that then you're probably reading the wrong blog I love ebooks too. I love how my Kindle can hold thousands of books and wherever I go in the world they can come with me. I love how the emergence of ebooks has resulted in more books being published than ever before - for better or for worse My love of books is the reason for this blog. I want to share it with other people who love books, I'm opinionated and passionate and I want to share those opinions with you and see what you think, do you agree or disagree? I want to hear your opinions and your recommendations... Basically I want to share the book love! I will pretty much read anything that is a romance but I mainly read paranormal romance, urban fantasy, new adult, young adult, and erotica... Plus the odd book here and there that is not a romance of any description! So that's what to expect from this blog. If you like what you see, please follow!

Come As You Are

Come As You Are - Theresa Weir * Review Copy granted from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Molly is a complete mess due to childhood sexual abuse on the part of her adoptive father. Throw in the revelation that her twisted "father" has a biological son (whom he abandoned as a baby) and the biological son - Ian - gets everything in the will and Molly is even more of a mess. I couldn't connect with Molly, there was no depth to her.

Ian is a relatively together guy, he's nice... But he was rather 2 dimensional too. I couldn't connect with Ian.

So basically we have a story about two people finding each other, a girl with a damaged past and the guy who is supposed to help her heal... In theory it should have been emotionally wrenching and Mr. nice guy should've made me swoon, but that just didn't happen. I didn't emotionally connect with the characters (they had no soul) and the story wasn't all that exciting.

I don't hate the book, I don't dislike the book, I just don't feel much of anything for this book at all.

It just doesn't stand out from the crowd.

It was a quick read and it'll probably fade from my memory very quickly too. In fact, the only thing I'll probably remember about this book - long term - is penis penis penis. Beautiful Penis. Penis penis penis. Yep, that's right, Molly's (semi)frequent internal blathering about Ian's beautiful penis is what I'm taking away from this book... That and the gorgeous cover.
