Amanda @ Late Nights with Good Books - I’m not a huge fan of paranormal romance myself, but I do appreciate a good work of speculative fiction. Perhaps Jennifer Echols was just a bit out of her element here? I mean, it sounds like what she does best in her contemporary novels (the romance) is where you found this novel to really shine. I haven’t read anything by her myself, but, after reading your review, I think I’ll definitely look instead to trying one of her contemporaries instead.

Tara - Sigh. You know my thoughts on this one. I really wish I could have finished it but am looking forward to Dirty Little Secret and everything else she writes.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - When I read the description of this book I just think “why are there so many things happening?” I love Jennifer Echols SO MUCH, but her adult stuff just doesn’t work for me. I did read an egalley of Dirty Little Secret and it’s pretty much everything I love all at once. I practically died from happiness the entire time.

elena - Aw, I’m sorry this didn’t work out for you! I know it’s a bummer when you don’t like a fav author’s book. The dialogue sounds like it would be annoying. It’s jarring when characters seemingly don’t act their age and huh over a character always wearing bathing suit tops. Thanks for your honest review!

Daphne - i was kinda iffy with the description, but held out hope because it’s JE, but I think I will skip it. There are better JE books out there that I haven’t read yet, so I’ll just read those instead.

Allison (Allure of Books) - yeah, I’ve been hesitant about picking this one up. The plot sounds a little too bizarre for me! I am a Jennifer Echols fan though, so I’m sure I’ll pick it up eventually. At least I’ll have fairly low expectations going in!

April Books & Wine - This makes me sooooo sad. Boo. BOOOOOO.

I am really looking forward to this one, but oh well, at least Dirty Little Secret was great and I still have Such A Rush and Going Too Far and Major Crush to look forward to.

Sigh.

I think I need to read this soon, so that way I don’t review it during Jennifer Echols week if it’s not great.

Alexa Y. - It makes me a bit sad to hear that this book seems to have missed the mark! I’m a JE newbie, as you know, but I’ve enjoyed the two books I’ve read by her (both young adult). I’m always wary of paranormal these days, so I think I’ll pass on this one for now. Sad it didn’t end up being as good as you’d hoped!

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Ohhh that’s a bummer. I was really curious by the concept of this one… Sadly just not what I was hoping it would be, apparently!
