I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

God, I really used to like those kind of books...

Blaze - Suzanne  Wright

And now I don't any more.

 

There is mostly little things that just add up.

 

Like the competetiveness. All other women really want her guy, but she got him. The inherent message: She is better somehow than all the other whiny bitches.

Why is it always that women in books need to be better/prettier/thinner/more interesting/stronger/morally superior etc. than all the other women.

I hate this!!!

Why can't a guy just fall in love with you and like you for being you without you having to be cooler than anbody else?

 

So, a few other little niggles:

They go into restaurants for fine dining to eat steak there. Harper dresses in jeans because she is just so down to earth and doesn't like dressing up.

That's simply stupid. Why not go to a nice steak restaurantinstead? It's Vegas, US, there must be some! Then you don't have to dress up. Fancy dining is more than steak and if you don't like the whole experience leave to people who do!

 

The promise thing: Harper promises something, then does the opposite. When Knox points that out, he is an asshole. And gets bashed for it, and needs to apologize, because she had reasons - sorry, that doesn't fly in my book. That was such a bullshit. I really don't understand why the author did that as it didn't serve any purpose in the story.

 

Just nope.
