Lists with This Book. Also it takes place in a laughably short amount of time three or four days, I believe and that made it very unbelievable that these two had gone from being adversaries to in love mqte.
View all 4 comments. Mar 18, Catcu rated it really liked vy. Este es el primer libro que leo de esta autora y la verdad es que me ha parecido muy entretenido. I have read quite a few of GS books, however I have got to say this is my least favourite of all of them. Although it isn’t a bad or unenjoyable book, it just isn’t very remarkable. I think my main annoyance with the book is the central couple, i just couldn’t see how they could come to a showaltet ending in such a short space of time, and also the arguing between them is descriped as like thier foreplay which I can totally be on board with, I just didn’t think it was particually realistic in this bo I have read quite a few of GS books, however I have got to say this is my least favourite of all of them.

Another annnoying thing is the over use of teh word nipple!
Although in the end it just made me laugh But I did like this book, I especially liked the substory of Georgia and Brents getting together. I thought it was sweet. Also the book is funny, so I warn you not to read it in a public place, laughing by yourself only gets you strange looks as I keep discovering!
Catch a mate / Gena Showalter. – Version details – Trove
In summary I enjoyed reading it, but am glad that I only borrowed it from the library rather then had bought it. View all 12 comments. This was just blah.
I wanted to take a break from the X series, hadn’t read a light-fluff contemporary romance book in a while. Just wanted a light fun easy read.
This was definitely easy but it just fell completely flat in all other areas. Sorry don’t buy it. It was rushed a This was just blah. It was rushed and not fully delved into IMO. I wish I could say I fell for the main couple and saw their chemistry, but I didn’t. I liked Marcus Brody, thought he was a witty and charming guy with mahe naughty sense of humor. I just didn’t believe or buy the whole “I’m falling for you and I’m completely turned on when you snarl at me” angle.
I’ve seen gnea a hundred times in CR books but in this I couldn’t buy it considering the short time span plus it came off cheesy as hell. They sleep together after meeting each other 2 or 3 days prior and then they are sharing ILY’s.
Jullian was just too jaded, bitter and bitchy for my tastes. And a little crazy as well. Girl needed to lighten up and let go of the ‘all men are pigs’ mind set and pull that stick out of her ass.
I understood where she was coming from but the constant ‘pig’ and ‘bastard’ snarky comments got really redundant and just annoying to read about after a while. I also thought the bickering between the two, especially from Jullian’s side was just overkill at times. The arguing and jabs at each other came off childish rather than funny.
That whole conference room meeting scene where she makes wise cracks at Marcus and talks back to him in front of everyone was so immature. Seriously if I ever talked to MY boss like that, no matter how sexy and yummy he is my ass would be fired in two seconds flat and oh yeah I would have at least felt a shred of embarrassment for making a complete ass out of myself.
Catch a Mate — All About Romance
The girl had no damn tact and lacked self-awareness completely. Another problem I had was Jullian’s knee jerk reaction to make Marcus pay whenever he did something ‘wrong’ or hurtful. That was just stupid to me. What are you twelve? Really lame and adolescent. The whole deer urine fiasco with the light bulbs yes you read that correctly was ggena last straw for me.
Who does something like that?!
It’s such a stupid childish psycho-ex thing to do. I’m sorry someone who does that kind of thing needs therapy pronto not a slap on the back and high five. She had a lot of issues and resentment which the author handled very lightly like it was a typical way to act. A grown adult who pulls stunts like that needs help not be enabled and cheered on.
Oh and a side note, having the first sex scene one of the only two be a piss-drunk screw on the couch is a total let down. And the ending was typical CR ending and so cliche and super cheesy. Or I should say worse. Oh g-d was she worse. I really wanted to sympathize with her considering how she was a shy nerdy awkward teen who transformed into a beautiful woman but her constant woah is me ‘It’s so hard being this beautiful I want a man to love me for me’ perception came off whiny, shallow and I’m sorry to say but just freaking pathetic.
I just couldn’t sympathize with her. Instead of feeling sorry for her I just kept getting irritated with her constant pity-party attitude and wishy washy actions. For someone who kept claiming she wanted a man to love her for her and was sick of being used, she came off really passive aggressive and just fickle in her actions.
Here we listen to her moan and whine about not being sure and how can she know if he loves her for her, instead of opening her mouth and talking to the guy or being an adult about it she stalls, doesn’t say anything, puts him through a ‘test’ where the guy ends up dumping her. She gets piss drunk over it crying cause the man had the nerve to dump her. The world is over!!! At this point I really didn’t care if she got together with Jullian’s brother Brent or not, the man she’s been secretly longing for and in love with since childhood.
And of course to top it off, he loves her back of course RME and is following her everywhere trying to talk her to reason.
Vatch, didn’t buy it. You supposedly love this woman but have spent pretty much most of your adult life brushing her off? As much as I would have liked to fall for their ‘secretly been in love with you for years’ history, I just couldn’t get into it. It just came off sad and lame rather than sweet.
Mostly because of Georgia and her deep insecurity where she’s convinced every man on the planet only likes her for her looks and x leave her once she gains a pound or g-d forbid gets one wrinkle.
It was just too much and fell flat for me. It’s crap like this that feeds the stereotypical view of all women being self-absorbed insecure ninny-heads. It’s not funny or cute but embarrassingly cringe-worthy. We all have our cray-cray moments but gna book was packed with too much ‘please call your shrink. Stat’ craziness for me. Damn, I thought I was jaded and cynical but I’ve got nothing on this chick! Jillian our leading lady has some serious man-hating issues.
Marcus, the leading man who gets to deal with this little ball of joy has his own issues. He so charmingly puts women into three categories: Be still my heart! So yeah these are the two main components that are suppose to come gna and create a wonderful love fest. Color me surprised when it didn Holy Bitter Betty! Now matte about one of those stories, any one I’m hella sure you’ve read them all because frankly who hasn’t, well except the side book about Cal’s bro.
I haven’t read that one but really it shouldn’t count as part of the series I say! Now while you are lost in awesome sexual tension land add all the hate, bitterness, and vitriol you can to the witty, fun, snarky conversations those leading characters had.
