Hers by Dawn Robertson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I’m not going to waste too much time on this. If you saw my status updates you know how I feel. Firstly, it ended at the 90% mark the rest of the book is previews and what not, be warned!!! It was different and good for the first part of the book. Especially the strap-on action . That is usually not something you see even when the female character is dominant.
At some point though it just started to get really pedestrian. I’ve read this story a million times already, and I was really disappointed about it. There was so much potential with a character like Seven. I don’t know what I was expecting but I guess I just thought it would have more originality. I liked Levi a lot. Daniel was just strange to have such massive swings from one direction to another. I just don’t see his pansy pampered ass stooping to that level, and to mention that he has a Mom with mental health issues and not being surprised that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree just seemed like a low blow and an inadequate way to explain why he decided to go into left field so late in the game. Seven’s supposed “fucked up”-ness and issues read like a stereotypical uninformed persons view of PTSD!!! With absolutely no clear and valid antecedent!!! I absolutely guessed that Star was a pornstar it made sense but what didn’t make sense with that kind of career and not having any real family or anything the “blackmail” that Blue laid on her seemed absolutely ridiculous!!! If he told anyone she had a baby who would give a shit?!? Also, he was a grown ass man fucking a teenager… I’m pretty sure if he said anything his ass would have been in jail! It just didn’t make sense at all! I think this story had a really good beginning and premise and could have been a lot more than it was! I wouldn’t recommend it for the top of your reading list but I think a lot of people will like it and won’t be as persnickety as I am in regards to some of the details.
