26 Hours in Paris, Demi Alex
Loved the sound of this but…one of those that just didn’t really cut it for me.
It felt rushed – OK there were only 26 hours in Paris ( that 24 hours from Tulsa keeps running through my head!) but somehow it felt as though Demi has tried to cram every second with something – sex, sex and yet more sex, that fast became dull for me rather than sensual and erotic. Kathryn must have had difficulty walking after all that happened..
Then Paris, Paris – the place she’s always wanted to visit and has a list of what she wants to see – and she does, but its a whirlwind tour it seems, crammed in between yet more sex.
Then when it went wrong – the drama and part I always love – it just felt odd, didn’t seem to me to be a decent or reasonable excuse for what happened. a real “storm in a teacup” – damn, yet more song lyrics! It just felt so unreal that for me this wasn’t a book that worked. Just too much of everything crammed in with no time to develop plots further. Romance,
Stars: Two, sorry one that didn’t work for me but has been great for many others. Usual stuff, not all book suit all readers, doesn’t mean this is a bad book,. just that its not to my taste. .
