Q: What are you reading right now? How do you like it?
I am currently reading Rivals and Retribution (13 to Life #5) by Shannon Delany. I am not enjoy it at all! Pietr lost all of his appeal in book #4, and he still hasn't regained his personality or found his balls. Pietr and Jess are so lame as a couple right now that I don't even care if they are together. That makes me sad because I loved them in the first 3 books.
Book #5 (like book #4) changes POV between Jessie, Alexi, and Marlaena. My problems with this is that the POV changes almost every page, so it's hard to jump from one character to the next, and it makes the story very choppy. And I don't give a shit about Marlaena and her POV. She is a waste of time and space and I don't understand why she has become one of the main voices of the last 2 books. Also, Alexi was hotter than hot in book #4, but now his POV adds nothing to the story - his parts don't have any of the inner dialogue and turmoil that it did before. We get juicy bits like "We all stood around looking at each other" and "We all crammed in the car and I drove..." Downright compelling. Only NOT. It's filler.
I am past 200 pages currently and things aren't looking good for this book. Someone save me...
