You have those reads where they are great–BUT! This book has a BUT in it, and I think it’s what doesn’t work for me.
Athena Vosh is an average nineteen-year-old girl struggling with things like her relationship with her girlfriend Nomi and getting her art displayed in a gallery. She treats her mother well, and she’s an exemplary citizen.
She hides the fact that she is fascinated with the idea of bringing back men; since most seem to believe that the Y-Fever was a good thing, and society is better for it now, as a sisterhood. Athena keeps her drawings of the male form from the eyes of everyone, including Nomi. That is until her dreams become enigmatic and prophetic and lead her to the Core, their world’s great processor of information and database–who leaves her with more questions than answers.
I want to give this an extra star for Demon the Cat, but I can’t honestly justify the indulgence–this is a solid three-star book.
Emily Baker’s life suuucks. She is one pizza delivery away from the end of a shift, and wouldn’t you know there is a cat out there just waiting to eff up her entire life.
Long, hard days at a veterinary practice aren’t the only reason Logan Price is grumpy; that quality is part of his disposition. Having a near-miss collision with a delivery scooter that almost wipes out a kitty cat is the last straw for today.
Yet after the altercation, Logan has no idea why the wrong-doer is turning him on, why he’s taking her back to his clinic with the cat, why he’s making the near cat killer a cat owner, or why he’s demanding she and the cat come back the following day. It has something to do with pheromones, or possibly he’s thinking with the wrong body part.
These two are an odd couple, and they are cute together. Emily is very whacky to Logan’s straight guy. Demon is further whacky to both of them. Oops, My Bad is a cute Rom-Com that has many chuckles. But one of the things it lacks is steam in its steamy parts. Those parts are rushed and read awkwardly. It feels like they are supposed to be dirty, but they are just dirty words instead.
Overall I did enjoy this read even though it has some clunky faults.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Neuroses. Vrinda Pendred has penned what is undoubtedly a controversial young adult narrative regarding a society built on its own mental unwellness. Welcome to Equilibria where your OCD is everyone’s primary concern.
Anna Nolon has many fears, but her most current are the empty chair next to her in Maths class and a chipped nail. While one of those is a quick fix, the other requires divine intervention for resolution, only what the Great Organiser delivers is a hot mess, in direct conflict with social norms. Anna isn’t sure if Aaron King is a hawk or a pig, but she wants to be a hawk with him.
