The title of the book is eye roll worthy. I'll admit that I had many moments of wondering why in the hell I was continuing to read this book because of how utterly ridiculous it is and no it isn't ridiculous in the great way that Fear Street books are. I'm not going to go on and say no one should read this book because I'm not one of those people although maybe I should be after all they seem to have the posts that go viral while I'm left wondering whether or not anyone is even reading any of my posts because of the silence. Hard to know when people don't say anything. There was some confusion because two books claimed to be book one but I went with this one because it was written first.
It didn't take long for me to absolutely hate Selena. She decided to loudly talk about her friend Grace's lack of a sex life. Bitch it is none of your business and Grace never said she had a problem with not having sex. It isn't food. You can live without it. She was just so obsessed with getting her friend laid because gods forbid a person go without the sex. Of course Selena finds a book with some guy trapped inside that she wants Grace to have for a month of sex. Really? Really? Really? Did that really happen? Yes it did. There's no sign of Grace being desperate for sex. She just doesn't want to hop into bed with a guy. She wants it to mean something. What is wrong with that? Selena seems to be desperate enough for two people since she has Grace chant the spell or whatever that released Julian from the book. I do have to say that I liked Grace's dinner. Who doesn't love pizza? I do but not with wine.
I do appreciate that Grace didn't just jump into bed with Mr Full Of Himself. He was way too handsy. If someone was trying to lick my butt crack I'd be kicking him in the nuts. Everyone seems to fall under the spell of this guy and I just don't get the appeal. So what you have a lot of sex. Am I supposed to be impressed? Is that supposed to mean everyone is supposed to drop their panties and let you stick your spoon in her jam jar? Yeah something like that was said in this book. What the fuck am I reading? Keep your spoon to yourself dude. Also add in some idiot that decides to give Grace's phone number to a patient. Yes let's give that girl a raise.
I am 42% of the way in as I type this. I'm getting the feeling that this patient is going to stalk Grace. Oh goody at least that will detract from everyone wanting to just screw Julian. Seriously what is the appeal? There's a way to break the curse and oh goody Grace just so happens to have the right last name but it requires the two to not have sex until the last day of the thirty days and as a bonus the lack of sex will make Julian go insane. Really? So in this world not having sex makes you crazy. What the fuck? Seriously what the fuck? What the fuck am I reading? The writing is fine. It is the story that's making me shake my head in total bafflement. Why is this series so popular? I'm pretty damn sure I won't be continuing on with the next unless someone decides to sponsor my posts because I would need some incentive to do this. No Misty it has to be a real sponsored post which won't happen. I might not be the smartest person in the world but I'm not a total moron.
Bronze his tongue? Really? Can we bronze something else instead? Am I supposed to feel sorry for Julian? Sorry I can't do it. He was cursed because he screwed Penis's virgins. I can't spell the name and don't feel like checking for the spelling. Close enough. Oh great idea. You killed my wife so I'm going to screw one of your virgins. That's a fabulous idea. Eros and Psyche seem to enjoy being bikers. I don't understand why you'd carry a weapon that could kill you. Eros were you thinking when you thought that was a good idea? For Julian it doesn't matter because he can't be killed since he's doomed to be trapped in a book until he's summoned for thirty days of sex. He seems to enjoy the sex so why is he complaining? Except for the whole being trapped in a book thing isn't that a guy's dream come true?
Don't worry Julian ebooks will never replace books. Have you seen the prices of some ebooks? They are just as much and sometimes even more than a physical book. Gee guess which one I'd be getting if someone gave me a gift card or I hoarded enough gift cards I've earned? Duh the one in the flesh because an ebook doesn't totally seem like it belongs to me and going by the library it turns out that they have only so many reads before they go poof. Isn't that crazy? I just couldn't do it. I made it to 42.5% and decided to call it quits. I was going to stick it out but I've decided that I'd rather be reading something else.
