Better than expected

Bitter Sweet Love - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I’ll admit I wasn’t really pumped about reading this.  I’ve read most of Jennifer Armentrout’s series and I usual love them in the beginning and by then end of the series I’m more like, “meh”.  To be honest the description did not excite me.  I mean a sentence like, “Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again...” in the description makes my eyes roll so much I get a headache.  I was afraid I was in for a whine fest about the woes of teenage love.  While that was a larger part of the story I enjoyed the characters and the plot of the series that was trying hard to not be smothered by an adolescent love story.  Yes I will admit the love story was sweet.  The novella is a good start to the series.  JLA fans will be pleased.  I will probably read the full series.  I might not be counting the days until White Hot Kiss publishes but I will definitely add it to be TBR pile and read it eventually.  I hope to see more action and substantive plot in the coming novels over teenage love angst.  Don’t get me wrong, I love some swoony boys and sweet romance but needs more than just that in a book.
