Geez I was not expecting that cover when I clicked on your review! :lol2: I am not one to read romance novels, and it's a shame about the plot holes. Cliches in a romance don't really surprise me, but who am I to judge a genre I don't read? Thanks for the review!

I am into romance but the plot holes in this book make me hesitant to read it.

One gets the feeling that Bright is trying to fit ten gallons of water into a five gallon bucket.
That seems to be an extremely fitting description for this book. With the numerous editing errors added to the poor plot lines, I'll definitely be avoiding this one. Thanks for the heads up! :)

Well thank you for being honest in your review. I could still read a book with plot holes in it but with punctuation errors and poor editing. It's a NO for me.

I hate that feeling of wanting to get to the end of a book so I can move on to the next. There are way too many great books out there to waste hours on a mediocre one. I had a feeling from the synopsis this was not going to be worthy of my TBR list. Nicely balanced review. Definitely passing on this book.

At the beginning of the review, I really found myself rooting to add the book on my to-read list, but as I went down I became disappointed to discover that it has typos and grammatical errors. Thanks for your warning review. It's really superb.

The book has the markings of an exciting read. Too bad about the shoddy editing. Thanks for the great review!

Thanks for a detailed review. The errors make it a no for me. I trust the author would work on them after seeing this review. Steamy cover though.

This sounds like an interesting plot. Too bad the lack of editing makes it nearly unreadable.

Thank you for your well thought out review of this book. I'm glad I read your review. Plot holes and cliches are a significant reason to downgrade the rating of this book, so I can wholeheartedly agree with your rating of 2 out of 4 stars. I appreciate your constructive criticism. I'm usually not a fan of romance, so I'll only read the genre when it is particularly intriguing. I'll have to pass on this one.
