Can they find the forever that they both want or has it all just gone… too far?

 

This series is beyond painful for me. I loved the first book but the writing and the storylines for the 2nd and 3rd books have been God awful. The characters are unrealistic and annoying, the writing is just painful, and the storylines are predictable and stupid. I’m honestly shocked at how popular this entire series seems to  be.

My problem started in book 2 when Blaire became pregnant. I didn’t like the message that Abbi Glines sent in this series, making a 19-year-old girl get pregnant and then married. It’s not something that I would want my kid to ever read about, and I was just personally offended that it was even taking place. Speaking of the pregnancy, I also have a really big problem with the cover of this 3rd book. Blaire is 9 months pregnant in this book, but she has a flat stomach on the cover. I think that’s a little misleading for anyone who is just starting out the series, and it just really confused me.

The characters in this book have grated on my nerves since the beginning. During the first book, I LOVED Rush, and I really liked Blaire. However, I didn’t care for any of the supporting characters. It was in book 2 that I realized that I didn’t like anyone anymore. Book 3 topped the cake. All of the characters sucked in this book. Not only that, but all of the characters (especially the male characters) were unrealistic. It was like Abbi Glines had her own definition of what SHE wanted a male to act and talk like. I gotta say, though, men don’t act like that! Men aren’t all about love and mushiness. Some are, yes, but for the most part, men don’t act or think like the men in this book. It was really off-putting because when I think of contemporary, I think of realistic fiction. This book was not realistic at all.

With New Adult books comes sex scenes. It’s going to happen in pretty much every New Adult book. I’m being completely honest, I was so grossed out in some of the sex scenes in this book that I started to gag. I don’t even know what to say to that. I thought that I was going to throw up. Not only did I not want to read about a 9-month pregnant lady getting her freak on, but some of the scenes………ew. Just…..ew. It was disturbing, unexpected, unappreciated, and just gross. I’m still recovering…

Overall, I did not like this book at all. I would not recommend this series to anyone, and I will never read anything by Abbi Glines ever again. I’m still not over the fact that I actually paid for these books. I know this sounds like a really harsh review, but it’s the truth! I didn’t even fully read this book, and I still wish I could get back all the hours that I wasted on this series. Live and learn, I guess.
