The Author Wore Prejudice

A serial killer, rapist or a Republican? Exaggerate much?
At least it was in the first chapter.
I read to escape from political insanity, not to find out which party an author endorses.
Love that you class half America, both male and female, in with killers and rapists.
Sorry, in the current political climate, I don't think it's funny.

Why make the subject political

If I wanted to read a political novel I would have read one but in this politically charged time I wonder why she had to declare her as a liberal I wonder why an author would deliberately have less people buy her book because a conservative would have a problem with it. Or if an author stated the person was a conservative and a liberal was reading it doesn’t make sense

DNF

While I found some amusement occasionally in the dialogue, I got tired of the broad humor. I don't know why authors think it's funny to throw in a crass, sex crazed grandma... it's tiresome and wasn't funny to me in the first 20 times I read it in a book. Add to that the stereotype white trashy inlaws and a cartoonish boring fiancee , and I am done expecting depth or feeling from this book. Finally, the H who woos her comes off as smarmy to me. He constantly tries to seduce her, also trying to entice her to buy a overpriced wedding dress she can't afford while telling her he's not interested himself in a relationship. So, that leaves only one thing he's interested in if she's engaged to someone else and he doesn't want her , and it just comes across as creepy. I am already tired of her inner thoughts ....I'm engaged but why do I keep thinking of blah blah blah.... I am out at chapter 12.

Don’t like books involving cheating.

While I admit this particular plot is different than all the other romance books I’ve read, I don’t like books where cheating is made okay and and advised by a friend. I don’t know how anyone can trust a cheater. If Barry is wrong for her she needs to figure that out on her own without another man’s influence.

Sweet & Stupid

While sweet & mildly entertaining, this book about Candace, a supposedly intelligent business owner, was disappointing. She was ready to marry mamma's boy Barry until she meets sexy Michael. If Candace was that stupid and insecure, she deserved to be miserable.

Slow pace, stupid heroine, inconsistent narrator

Spoilers : the entire book was mainly people telling her not to marry this convenient man and in true stupid heroine fashion, ignores LITERALLY EVERYONE till the very last second. It was so beyond predictable not to mention her true love interest literally met her TWICE before buying her a wedding dress so that HE could marry her. Oh and the Troup of "women love chocolate omg lol haha". And to top it off the narrator kept forgetting to switch voices so she'll read the girl's voice deeper and the man's voice lighter. This is such a hard pass!

In the first chapter the she goes political agains Republicans. What an abhorrent use of a book .

I will never read this author. She shows her horrid political bias and brainwashed ideology. Cheap shots about politics in a romance novel is bad form

Nope.

Another trite, predictable story. I struggled to finish, and only succeeded after too much time.

Best ever

This was the best romance novel ever. Just the right amount of tension spiced with romance. Outstanding, outstanding. Narration was Okay a few of the characters were a bit overdone.
