Saturday, October 3, 2015

Prepare to feel my wrath for this book.

Wild (The Ivy Chronicles, #3)
Title: Wild (The Ivy Chronicles #3)
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Date of Publication: November 18, 2014
Genre: contemporary NA romance

A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.

Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she’s ready to change her image, and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?

In the shadowy den of the kink club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend’s little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light years ahead when it comes to sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!

Georgia is tired of having others define her. She’s going to teach Logan a lesson he won’t forget—one white hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she’s way in over her head, Georgia runs.

Only Logan won’t let her go. Everywhere she goes he’s there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other.

Review

My Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

The biggest regret that I have is that I bought this book with my ~hard-earned money~ and THIS IS WHAT I GET. I'm more irritated in that fact than anything else. I've read this book almost a year ago and I ended up being so irritated by it all that I was sure I won't be able to write a sensible review. So I let time pass by and I thought this time around I would be levelheaded enough to write it. But, nope. Seeing these tweets again made me remember how much I wanted to smack Georgia right in the face.

See my discussion with people who didn't love the book as well.



That was with Wendy. But I needed to let off steam more so I ranted away to Nick. 


So to summarize why I hated this book:
  • It's not believable. Even the characters and their actions are not believable. It's not like I'm judging them for making the wrong decisions. We all do that. But in a certain kind of logic, wrong decisions MAKE SENSE. Everything makes sense when you see the motivation. But in here, I don't get why Logan even likes Georgia. Why the characters do what they do. These characters aren't just flat, they don't make sense to me. T_T
  • There is supposed to be a kink club and NA-DA. We don't get that. We see a bit but if you use the fact that your book features a sex club in your marketing, be sure to deliver.
  • Things just happened so we'd have Events and Conflict and it was so blatantly obvious that the author doesn't know where to take the novel as well. Or well, if she really did want to take it there, WHY?
  • GEORGIA IS SO FUCKING ANNOYING. I hate to hate on a girl but good lord, I CANNOT DEAL WITH HER. She was fine at the start, I even felt for her and her being "vanilla" but goodness, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? You hated how your heart was broken and then you kept on stringing along Logan. UGH, JUST, UGH. I like Logan, I do, but he can't save Georgia and this book for me.
And I'm out. I thought this would be great because Sophie Jordan wrote this AMAZING short story about Hunter set in the universe that is this series but COME ON. This is SO FAR from Crash and  I am super annoyed to have bought this. OH WELL.
