DNF at 45%. :(As a reader, you know, even before reaching 15% or 30% or whatever that what you're reading is great, good, mediocre or bad. You would know. And as a reader, there comes a time where you have to make a decision right there and then. I'm not going to rate this but I just can't do it. I'm throwing in the towel. If a book cannot hold my interest long enough that I keep on putting it off, putting it off and putting it off says it all. The fact that I am giving up on Julie Garwood book, probably one of my fave authors of all time, is really painful. This isn't really a bad book. It's not bad, it's mediocre. I can't think of anything much worse than that. At least with bad, you'll get a good laugh out of it but mediocre?For one, I didn't like Peyton. I don't care much for her. And Finn? Who the hell is Finn? Aside from his accomplishments that I keep reading on and on about the first half of the book, he does nothing for me. And I don't feel the chemistry between them. That's it.I wish, I could articulate it more but when it comes down to it, Hotshot isn't so hot at all. At least for me. This could work for other people. Hey, I've seen people giving this 4 to 5 stars, so maybe it's just me. But for such an expensive book, $15.85 for the hardcover and $9.99 for the Kindle Edition, I'm expecting to be blown away. I wasn't.So, DNF.Enough said.
