Wow. Lorelei is really, sincerely, very annoying!! The whole bab
Wow. Lorelei is really, sincerely, very annoying!! The whole babbling about modern culture schtick? Wow. Talk about *obnoxious*! Blech. More than once, I legitimately wanted to stop reading. Or skip ahead about 20 pages to see whether it would get any better (but it never did! She only stopped talking during sex, so I found myself wanting Erik to throw her down and bang her...everywhere...all the time, if only so she'd shut up).Was this review helpful?

She's an emotional pendulum, and it boggles my mind how she managed to yank her head out of her ass long enough to look around and fall in love with the Viking who owns her. She's the most stubbornly obstinate, pig-headed, contentious, impossible woman ever, completely incapable of compromise!! I can't possibly imagine what Erik sees in her that's worth liking.
And boy, Harold and Erik sure climbed aboard the "I Believe You" train real quick there at the end...And boy, everyone took her (dis)appearance remarkably well...no one was worried at all!! Dane thought it perfectly reasonable that the arm band had whisked her away.
Perhaps I'm overstating; I really can't connect to the main character - I don't handle argumentative/contentious women well...especially when it's supposed to be seen as sexy.
I was hoping the storyline could be redeemed anyways, but nothing of real excitement happens (I mean that for me, it's missing an "AH!" climactic moment. Most of it travels at a steady and congenial "Mmm-hmm...Mmm-hmm..." pace).
And some of the main plot points were very rushed toward the end. I think the story would've benefited immeasurably if more focus had been spent on those major plot points instead of on Lorelei's shrill railings.
This just didn't do it for me -- I shall be returning it. ASAP.
