  9. DNF and returned to Audible So much of the beginning of this story just did not add up and was just silly.

  10. This is another one of those romances set in a small town where all of the residents are monstrous, and the book ends with the h finally getting accepted by a group of hypocrites.This book REALLY bugged me, because basically it boiled down to the h getting slut shamed, repeatedly, by EVERYONE The author made her wear sackcloth and ashes even as she was supposedly so feisty The H was the chief architect of her suffering after the OM, of course , and his tactics were loathsome No character in This is another one of those romances set in a small town where all of the residents are monstrous, and the book ends with the h finally getting accepted by a group of hypocrites.This book REALLY bugged me, because basically it boiled down to the h getting slut shamed, repeatedly, by EVERYONE The author made her wear sackcloth and ashes even as she was supposedly so feisty The H was the chief architect of her suffering after the OM, of course , and his tactics were loathsome No character in this ...
