3.75 – 4 Stars
I was undecided on my rating for this for a bit, quite honestly.
Don’t get me wrong, I really did enjoy this book…
…just not as much as I thought I would, I suppose.
But being that book two in this series (Last Breath) is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES – you read that right:
(Them be some bold words right there, I know)
…It’s pretty unreasonable of me to expect book three to reach those epic proportions.
But I be but a human yo, so trying to separate this book from that one is difficult for me.
So there’s that.
Overall though, I really enjoyed this story.
I thought a great job was done with Naomi and her “Aspie” tendencies.
Also, Vasily was a great character and I enjoyed finally getting to know him better here.
Watching these two quirky people come together was a lot of fun to watch.
I have a serious confession to make.
This book really touched on a sensitive subject for me.
Something that has been a part of my life and affected me for as long as I can remember.
That’s right, I’m talking about you, GERMS.
I fucking hate you.
Like Naomi, I have bit of OCD, and a whole lotta of GERMAPHOBE in me.
That’s right, I am that annoying bitch who will wipe down my entire seating area when I get on a plane.
That crazy ass who will not sit on a toilet seat not located in my own house. Not even at my grandmother’s house – actually, especially at my grandmother’s house…
That asshole who will not shake a stranger’s hand, but insist on a fist bump.
I know, I know, I’m heinous.
So my secret is out.
I am a germaphobe and an asshole.
A germassphobe, if you will.
Sorry, but certain things just gross me the fuck out.
No I’m not.
So needless to say, reading a lot of these scenes through Naomi’s eyes made it a little…difficult for me to concentrate sometimes, as some of my own…issues would rear themselves.
So in scenes where they were about to get busy and Vasily had to “distract” her from the dirty mattress?
I was stuck on the dirty ass mattress.
Enough about my crazy.
I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to pre-sanitizing and reading the next one.
