Cranky Author Reviews : Double Dare by RL Mathewson

Spoilers
Although, I normally love her books this one flopped a bit for me...

It was still good but I feel like the focus was to much on the problems in their relationship and it lacked her normal light hearted romantic feel...

Darrin and Marybeth were cute and they loved each other for forever! But I feel like the diagnosis and the heart break was more important than the love they shared which made this book not as good as it could have been. It seemed that Marybeth's reaction was more that of a child than a grown woman. I get it I really do. Being a mother is a big part of being a woman for a lot of women.

Only it felt like the focus was always on that and not the love...I want to feel the pain but still know there is love with this one I felt that it was lacking. Marybeth didn't seem to love him as much as she loved the idea of being victim of her disease.

Yeah it sucked but if it's killing you then you need to fix the issue and move on even if it is depressing and breaks your heart you have a family and man who love you stop whining...Many women can't have children and yeah it's heartbreaking but somehow you have to let it go...

Right off on a tangent...I still loved this book even though I didn't like the reactions to this disease. I loved him telling the new man she was a hooker, I loved the way he knew her, and I loved that he was a typical Bradford and didn't see her flaws because he loved her...

so for me this was an SEPE or 4 star...only because of the focus shift at the end of the book that seemed to take over the story line...
