I like stuff with romantic elements and angst, usually YA, fantasy, paranormal/urban fantasy or variations thereof. Usually wrinkles nose at sci-fi due to unlikely tech. Straight girl who likes boys that like boys!

I don't know why I do this to myself!

A Life Without You - Erica Pike

This is bugging me no end. Jesse's innocent bumpkin act is not sweet and endearing, I'm not buying it, and he is A CHEATING ASSHOLE to his GF. I am so not seeing the attraction. Never trust a cheater; he could well do it again - TO YOU, Adam. He knows very well how Adam feels about him and is just stringing him along. His waffling over the GF is major lame, and he does not have a single measly vertebrae in his spine. Give it up, Adam. Seriously.


And really, if you take away Adam's Jesse obsession and there is *no*, absolutely NO personality left. It's all in his POV and I know almost nothing about him after 70 pages. NOTHING. Except that he is jonesing after Jesse real bad. Because he does that 110% of the time.


At least the present tense narrative is actually working so points to Ms. Pike there.


Total romance fail. I don’t know why I’m reading this. Oh, yeah, it was because I wanted to read the 3rd one - seemed like a fun rock star romance thing.
