Believe me; I have my reasons why this book is not even doorstop-worthy. I made it to Book Three of this particular series and decided that was enough torturing my eyeballs (I think the author is up to nine books). The story concept was fascinating and I even liked most of the little twists and turns the plot took. But its the main character that ended it for me. See, she is beautiful. Gorgeous, even. So much so, that every man (and the occasional woman) who meets her, desires her. And even though she's supposedly in a committed relationship (which she just ended in #3, so let the good times roll for the next book!), she gets all swoony over these guys, too. And there's the occasional "innocent and completely without repercussions" make-out/groping session with others characters. If this is how the beautiful people act in real life, then I will thank my average-looking stars!
While I enjoy my various roles as "nose wiper," "airhead in charge," and "meal burner," I'd like to add "published novelist" to the list. So let's consider this research for that future position. What do you hate most in fiction books? What traits/quirks/plot twists get your panties in a bunch? What makes you close a book?
