Great story. I just didn't like that too many rambling words.

I bought this eBook thinking that it would be a lovely story of a young woman picking up a stranded musician on the side of the road. In my mind, I assumed the two would become friends after Darla figures out that said musician is the lead singer of her favorite band. Trevor would go back home, or even go on tour, and leave Darla behind. Time would pass and eventually, for the sake of the plot, the two would run into each other...feelings would be felt...actions would be made...cue the Happy Ever After, et cetera, et cetera.

Was I correct? Heck no. Heck. No.

This book was a load of bull. Bull I know books are works of art and the author has complete control over what happens, but that is exactly where the disappointment set in. Instead of making this fictitious story as realistic as possible, the author decides to completely take it in a different direction. Let me tell you, I was not ready for where she was taking this story and I think I'm still scarred. 

First off, Darla gives a ride to a naked stranger who is using a guitar to cover his crotch. Seriously? Who in their right mind would do that? If you see a naked person on the side of the road, you call the police and wait for them to give him a blanket and a lift to the station. You don't pick him up! 

Secondly, WHERE ON THIS GOOD EARTH does this chick get the urge to have sex with this naked stranger? Okay, I understand that he is the drool-worthy lead singer of her favorite band, but still. This just threw me off immediately and I knew if they were having sex (or attempting to) within the first small chunk of the book, they would be doing it other times in the rest of the story. Boy, was I right.

Sex. Lets just talk about that. I am perfectly fine with reading books that get a little steamy, I mean, I have to live vicariously through these characters, right? I have not once read a book where a threesome pops up, and certainly not one that happened so easily. Just because Trevor shows interest towards Darla while around his friend Joe, that DOES NOT mean that Joe has to be like, "Oh wow, if Trevor likes this chick then there must be something special about her. Maybe I like her too." Honestly. So, [SPOILER ALERT] because of this sudden interest in his "friend's girl", they find that they cannot bare being separated from her and she stupidly follows them to their hotel where a threesome occurs. Great. Just...awesome. Was not expecting that. Well, I was expecting it but at the same time, I don't think any of this would have happened in real life. I KNOW IT IS FICTION AND FAKE AND ALL OF THAT STUFF, I KNOW. It's just...really? Out of all the creative stuff you could have pulled out of your rear, Ms. Kent, why this? I highly doubt that two friends are going to successfully do the same chick in one night, especially together. Nope. I'm not feeling it. Try again.

Speaking of trying again, I would certainly expect a second book. I mean, after all the hype Darla made about moving and leaving her mother and all that, we have to see what happens when she does leave! I really want to know what the job was that whats-her-face (I don't even remember her name...Josie?) was talking about that Darla would be perfect for. Though, after reading this book, I don't know if I have the patience to read the second. I do want to know what happens, just for the sake of knowing, but not if the sequel is going to be as painful as the first book. 

Overall, I was just dissatisfied with this book. I love books, I devour them, heck, I have a pile of books next to me that need reviews, but this book...this book was a waste of time. There, I said it. I have never said that about a book. Heck, if a book is horrible, I still don't dislike it. I praise the fact that the darn thing was written, whereas I'm sitting here doing nothing with my life. But honestly, if you want to read this book, go ahead. You might like it. You might not. I just wish I would have not taken a chance with this book. 

Sorry Ms. Kent.

    I wish you silly kids would take your stupid cat games somewhere else. This is a book review site, not a chat room, not a roleplaying site, not a blog site. Take your litter box elsewhere, it does not belong here.

    I can usually finish a 200 page book in about 4 hours. This book took me 5 days. I finished it because I hate not finishing books. But I am so thankful it was free and I did not spend money on this... whatever you want to call it.

    This book was offered as a free book, and based on a prior book

    This book was offered as a free book, and based on a prior book by Julia Kent I thought it might be a cute, light read. Sadly, I found the first two pages too offensive to even attempt to continue reading.  I do not consider myself a prude or normally bothered by some use of profanity, but I felt this was way excessive. Very trashy..  Not even worth getting it free.

    I can't believe I wasted my time on most of this book, the comedy was actually great, I stopped reading the book when I realized the threesome was gonna happen, I was hoping Darla had morals even if she thought she didn't... the story does continue but I won't be reading it.

    Sorry - like my romances a little more classy.

    Always looking for a new author but Kent's writing is definitely not my taste in romance. - I really want one character falling for ONE other character. Too unbelievable and made this reader too uncomforatable....

    Soooo not worth the $3.99 or the time spent reading. I followed through and finished the book because I had already spent the money..  Needless to say I was very very disappointed!!  Will not read any more of this authors books.
