DNF, Viki's review

Viki’s review: Roommates with benefits by Nicole Williams

Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls wouldn’t mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.

We have nothing in common . . . except our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

My thoughts:

I really like Nicole Williams books, she is one of my auto-buy authors and this book has such a beautiful and inviting cover that I couldn’t skip it. Unfortunately this story falls into the rare case for me that I DNF-ed it.

This is going to be a short review because I only read a 100 or so pages from the books. So when you read this review take that into consideration, too.  Why I DNF-ed this book when I usually don’t do that? Well let’s see. First and foremost my problem was with Hayden. She just annoyed me to no ends and made it impossible for me to get into the story. She is so naïve and stupid, she lives in a fantasy world or something and makes a big deal out of the stupidest things.  I just couldn’t come to terms with her actions. Some instances I just wanted to shake her the hell up. So this was my main reason to skip the whole story.
Then there is Soren who has the potential to be great but I didn’t read enough to get to know him enough. At the point he was great but too sweet and sometimes acted more like a girl than a man.

The writing style is great as its usual from the author I just simply didn’t like the characters and didn’t have the patience to continue the book. Sorry I tried, really did but 95 pages in 5 days is when I say enough is enough.
