Rogue Chronicles Entry
*sigh* I'm so disappointed. I want to love her stories so much... because they are not your typical set-up, and especially the titles just strike a cord with me, I guess... but I just can't cope with Jenny Foor's style. It's not for me.
From most of her book blurbs, I expect heart-wrenchingly dramatic, soul-crushing, maybe even violent. My cruel streak demands it, but you need to get in sync with the characters for that, and Foor's style is just too pointy for that, all sharp lines and no emotional bubbles. That's also the reason I have aproblem with all the incredibly romantic make-up scenes I'm expecting, which are just not happening, either plotwise or because I can't get attached. Thus, the whole read becomes as enjoyable as a monotone screenplay.
General problems aside, I particulary could not make myself like Rachel. She was stubborn and childish and weepy, and I have no idea why Chad even started something with her. At first, I was adequately disgusted with Grayson, but I came to like him okay because he realized how big of a screw-up he was, and he got himself back on the right track 100%. I didn't feel like Rachel went through any kind of improvement. She annoyed me, and her behavior made everything so much worse, so I didn't like the overall plotline of this either.
Consequently, this will very likely be the last of Jennifer Foor's romances for me. I still consider reading Twinsequences, though. Maybe she's better with crazy than romantic, because I'm very intrigued by the concept!
