I don't like books that take 300 pages to get somewhat interesting.
I didn't connect with anything about this other than wondering what is going to happen to the rest of the characters in books 2 and 3. I already bought the 2nd and 3rd books, so I suppose I should read them. This is what I get for shopping on impulse just because it was a buy 3 get one free sale.
Okay fine, the guys are humorous because they think of creative outlets to express themselves such as cross stitching and painting, but so what? I was taught to knit by a man. It's not foreign to think men participate in those activities.
Then there was the forced funny and the forced masculinity of the guys that really made my stomach
turn and my brain ache with echoes of "when is this going to end."
The only thing keeping me from trading in the next 2 books is the hope that the first book is just an ice breaker and the kinks in the characters have been worked out so the next too books are a more enjoyable read than the first.
