Backstories are repeated ad nauseam — except when key points are never explained at all, or other characters plop in with no prior histories whatsoever.
Minor devli are abruptly dropped when no longer needed.
And so, I present Boohoo, woe is me. I shall run away so none of these people can find me again. Is it too early to be gripped by a nebulous sense of doom? Because this prose is terrible.

Yay, I has a bestie! Go rot in a hole, you stupid bitch. I want to bone my wife. Alex would rather bone me, you know.
mmcbain For some reason I trust that your words are totally accurate. Boohoo, woe is me! But if I continue to pretend that I hate this man, perhaps he will reward me with everlasting true love.
Not the Big Mis. Several chapters later… ALEX: Someone has tried to kill you! Wtf are you doing here??
Just remember, on no account can you speak of any of this to anyone. My presence must remain a secret, especially from Alex. Yes, my husband is a devil. I hear he also hates women. A few days after… ALEX: You are boning this mystery man whose name is Ian! And I hate you too. Da fuck is wrong with you morons? Mariana was totally right. Look, your precious husband is injured!
My dear friend is in danger! Why are my parents so evil?!
Thank god somebody is on my side. Taste my pain, assholes! Not that anyone cares, since I only had, like, four lines. You are my nemesis that refuses to die! Burn in hell, you beauteous bitchwhore! I love you, David! Whatever your name is.
Nobody else will ever touch her, you wife-stealing bastard! My toys are my own! Laudie I love you. View all 51 comments. Feb 25, Eastofoz rated it it was ok Recommends it devkl Lovers of overly narrated pre bodice ripper romances. For the record, I really, really, really tried to like it but it was a no go. The hero is an ass. He’s totally into the “you are my chattle” thing and “you will obey me”.
You can have a hero like that but the heroine has to be his foil, well no such thing existed here. There were the odd moments when you thought he may be turning over a new leaf but then BAM! They hardly spent any real time together how can they be in love???? View all 21 comments. Feb 23, Karla rated it liked it Recommends it for: McBain fans, gothic fans.
