Sam's Reading: A Work in Progress

New to this...


Bombshell - C.D. Reiss This goes down as a big fat meh from me. For the first 50% I didn't understand the main characters, let alone the secondary ones. The second 50% suddenly they were just in love, and I had trouble separating the units. I guess that's largely what this book was about and that Brad's love for Cara grew because of her with his daughter, but I can't believe I read past her being humiliated and pushed time and again....
Can you say "hostile power dynamic?" The second 50% really complicated my feelings in the sense it was entertaining enough to keep me reading, but if someone asked in about 3 days about the book I'd have trouble accessing any details.

Ultimately, I'll just be left with the sense that Cara should have left at 15%, and that's also when I should've stopped reading.
