Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 135
I expected this to be a read where I would laugh my ass off, and it was. I burst out laughing more then once, from both Cleo's and Adrian's PoV. Sadly, as fun as thoughts and dialogue were most of the time, it was hard to take the whole story serious. Even more so since Adrian was all shades of Christian Grey's money-careless, horny, and a few other things, but without any of the jaded parts -- too good to be true, even for a fictional story. I would've liked just a little of that darkness from his past, to make him actually human and not like some fairy tale prince. Cleo was okay for the most part, but then there came the point where she revealed she was even more naive than a five-year-old, and had no fight at all. I'm not saying superficial or spineless, but... a princess. So they actually made the perfect couple, it was positively all pink fluffy hearts.
You can't expect much from the plot, either. Even for a story that short, it was just once too often the same sexual up and down, and it just grew more absurd each time. Without plot, it just gets boring after a while, you know? This wasn't properly balanced at all. BUT it was fun, lots of wit and fun. At least.
