This book just reiterated the fact that soft men don't appeal to me. It's even worse when you see one taking crap from a woman who doesn't necessarily deserve his nice-ness.
Jemistry (I dislike this name and I would mess up and think chemistry and dentistry in my head) is a woman who has been walked on, walked over, and beaten until the dust fell off. She's jaded, knows it, and can't seem to shake off the residue of past relationships gone wrong.
She's now "all about the sex" and it has its perks until she meets a man that says all the right things at the wrong time. He sees her pain and is willing to work with her if she'd just acknowledge that he's not a man from her past and to leave the baggage where it belongs.
I haven't read an urban erotica story in awhile and I found this read lacking in substance and story. Yes, there was an HEA, but there was no dramatic build up and I wasn't necessarily elated when they got together nor was I saddened during the "apart" moments.
This read was unreal to me, not absurdly so, with the whole roommate thing, the ring, how long they were separated, and his friend's drama.
Although this read was not for me, others will be sure to get the message that there are still some good men out there if you can just leave the past in the past.
