I saw great reviews of this book and I had to read it. I must say I did like it, but I found it lacking in certain ways. My rating oscillates between a 3.5 and 4 stars.
The premise, plot and overall blurb get you hooked from the start. Matt is enigmatic, broken, sick, so-dependent, a total perv and a cheating bastard, Oh yes he is… but also he is reclusive, in need of affection and he needs to heal. I fell for him when I found out he had a pet and the pet was a ….. soooooo cute!
Matt is a reclusive writer, no one knows his identity and he meets Hannah on-line. We do not get to see interactions between them, before hooking up (on-line) so I couldn’t relate to the feelings they stirred upon each other. I also felt, throughout the book and as the story was developing that the relationship was based solely on a physical level, on sex, and sex, and more sex. And, that is mostly due to the aforementioned fact, the lack of deep interactions between them.
Nevertheless, the story was pretty intense, the steam factor was panty dropping, panty melting hot, super hot! Naughty. But…. As always… I get upset when a heroine doesn’t talk to the hero after finding out something ugly, a lie, a problem, when they don’t face things head-on and just decide to condemn and “move on” without even giving the other a chance to explain things.
The way Matt handled sadness, rejection, problems was just a show of his damaged personality and the need he has for true healing and I understand Hannah helped in the end and all, but I am a true believer that healing is a process and that he needs more than just his girl and sex to be healthy; otherwise they will just be co-dependent and that is worse.
About the Epilogue… jejeje a lot of questions arose but I am on to you M. Pierce…. I am on to you, hope I’m right when I read the second installment.
