With strings attached by Kelly Jamieson

Pub.Date Jan. 22 2013
Rating 2/5 stars

One more book like that and I will start hating the book which contains threesomes in a romance novel!!!! I truly believe that and I hate to say it aloud.

A 2 star rating because:

A) The  plot wasn't good (It's better if you watch the movie No strings attached or Friends with Benefits).

I did not get what the author was trying to write about.3 people got together, 3 people got hurt and only 2 of them found their HEA. 1 was left hurt and alone to face his fears (name of the author) make a big mess. Unless she plans to write Dylan's story she has made a big fuck up. This is the story of 2 friends who have a no strings attached relationship and are completely satisfied with that get their lives complicated when Dylan arrives. Suddenly our couple realises that each has feelings for the other which is something I did not liked. Even though Matt is jealous he acts like nothing is bothering him and Corey doesn't realise her feelings about him until the end.They have no idea who they feel about the other until the last pages.It was kinda plotless.The book could be written with half the pages it has now and nothing could be missing.In fact it would be better.

B)The point of views were confusing.

Usually in a romance novel when we see different point of views are mostly of the people who will end up together.But here we have also Dylans POV and that was unsettling.He seemed liked a temporary thing but then we see his view.His catalytic role made him like him a little.Just a little.

C) It made me hate the threesomes in the book.

I love threeways you should know that.But not the ones when it gets in the way of a relationship. I like then when they happen between strangers, a couple which knows what they are getting into and when the 3 parts are in a relationship.But not like that.I ended up skipping the pages when Dylan, Corey and Matte were together.
