He succeeds, and Abby returns to the relationship. She must live with him. There was opportunity for the author to take a tough story and turn it into something responsible and this just didn't happen. His eyes were unfocused, and I could see he was incapable of rational conversation. I worried about his sanity.
Abby's quick to push him away because of his reputation, perception of his tattoos, and perceived sexual promiscuity. What begins as a genuine friendship slowly blooms into an all consuming, passionate, and frankly, obsessive and codependent relationship. She is committed to her laptop. However, there is a complete lack of authorial control over the contents of this book. . This book has caused many controversy and has earned some really nasty reviews, still, the book has an average rating of 4. It will rob you of your sleep! Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid.
No fucking one in the world should be allowed to force you into behaving like a child! And I'm also thinking about boys, they're not exactly the target audience but still; reading this must lead to wonder if this kind of behavior is what chicks like. I love a guy who is sure of who he loves, not afraid to defend them, and will try as hard as he can to prove himself. I know books aren't meant to be realistic, but I think they should be rooted with some truth. Books that glorify abusive relationships, especially if it's veiled abuse and doesn't give proper context nor knocks down the manipulative behavior, do not sit well with me. Travis had issues and scared the shit out of me, but his vulnerability and fears reached out to the part of me that wants to comfort hurting people. Which is very Freudian of her, but not a very pleasant thing to read about.
Now that I have officially joined the Kindle army, I felt that it was an appropriate time to start checking out the burgeoning e-book and self-published market. Travis has no respect for women, and almost every other woman in this book, no matter how fleeting their appearance, is described by the narrator Abby in the most derisive terms. Nothing really stands out about her other than she wears short dresses and gets drunk a lot. It took everything in me to get through the immature and emotionally abusive chapters which were never ending. She sits there listening to him giggling and moaning etc because she can't leave the bedroom without walking through the living room where his little threesome is going on.
How come no one in the cafeteria stands up and tries to stop this? Because everyone is fucking terrified to get hurt! I fell in love with how fiercely protective Travis was of Abby. He goes into the room where Abby is sleeping, fishes through his bedside table for some condoms and heads back out into the living room to have a threesome. But when he was letting her go and saying. I'm not going to sit still and pretend this book didn't horrify me. We're just all too blind to see them.
I liked him, I hated him, I liked him again. On one hand, I get it why authors might prefer to go down the self-publishing road. Now,I wish I could tell only good things but it won't be fair if I don't tell that he is also. So, well, you can just save your time with the comments. This is a book about an alpha male. It's not even halfway good. Be the Travis who never backs down from a challenge and say.
I recoiled at the thought of how many women had given themselves away against the fabric. I realize that one day I wont be able to control what they read or write about, but I can make sure they are educated and prepared. There is nothing endearing about his character at all. I've been in this relationship before. And they are still not perfect, because perfection does not exist. You're telling me that you still want to take this girl on a date even though she is living with another man and laying in bed with him every night no the pre-doc wasn't clueless to these acts?!?!?! After several incidents he would've been kicked out of the university, but don't worry about reality in this book.
Aside: book seems to spookily endorse tattooing other people's names and script related to other people's names on one's body. . I was braced to dislike her as the story progressed, fearing she would become little more than a doormat because of the codependent and obsessive relationship she had with Travis. He never backs down from a challenge. They are the most inconvenient, self-absorbed and antagonistic group of people who all need a good, solid kick in the pants. You act like you hate me one minute, and then need me the next.
Obviously, we won't get along and if you can't understand what I'm trying to say then it's fine, keep loving Eclipse and Blood Promise and Hush Hush, I mean, it's cool. You two are a disaster. I was easily transported into their world of college drama although, frankly, it felt more like High School. If not just for the events themselves i. The first one is a , written by author. But Abby is not ready to become yet another conquest. If that doesn't tell her how much I love her, I dunno what will.
