Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.
While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.
But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.
Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth.
I love K.A. books for the most part, but I could not even get halfway through this one. I HATED the Heroine - she was such a total bitch that I just felt like slapping her. And wow she did nothing but work, sleep, bitch and complain. No FUN at all. She seems to have lived 45 years in a bubble. I also do not understand her instant antagonism for him. He did nothing to her and said nothing to her to cause her to stand him up and berate him.
The Hero was so so but her hero's are starting to get a bit boring. They are exactly the same type every time. I love the alpha male, but each of her Hero's talk the same exact way, make up some stupid nickname for the woman (I mean Slick? come on what woman wants to be called Slick?), they move the same, and to be honest I am getting tired of the "chin lift" every time they come and go. Don't they ever just say hi or shake hands? And they seem to be perfect sex partners. They ALWAYS take care of the woman first and foremost (great fantasy but realistically that just does not happen each and every time).
Anyway I could not get into this one and I was so looking forward to getting lost in a K.A. book. Guess I will have to go back and read a Rock Chick book..now those were worth reading!
