Extreme Love Love to the Extreme #1 Into her life and expresses an interest in her Sure she's shed eighty pounds and her confidence is building but there's nothing spectacular about her Certainly not enough to hang onto a ripped babe magnet like Dante whose violent profession catty groupies and cruel competitors are already making her life a living hell Dante's light hearted pursuit I've said it before and I'll say it again Rarely does a heroine make a book for me but she can sure break one I'm afraid that Caitlyn was one of those break heroines She has recently lost a significant amount if weight Years of subtle bullying and negative self talk have brought her self confidence so low that even now when she has the outer appearance that she's been working for she can't let go of her insecurities In the beginning I liked this aspect of Caitlyn I think almost all women have something they are self conscience about That hot button issue whether it be you looks job family or something in your past I could easily put myself in her shoes Her hot button issue is her appearance and here she is thrown in with this uber hot guy I can completely see where this would throw your self doubt into hyperdrive I liked that the book was going to show her getting over her past and letting go of old hurts but for me it just took too long There were portions of the book where I felt like I was getting a lesson in sensitivity which I found off putting There was so much hand holding and so much revolved around her issues and insecurities that I found it hard to enjoy the relationship that was supposed to be building SHE wasn't enjoying it so I couldn't eitherShe does finally get past it but it was just shy of too late for me There were several times when I wondered why Dante was putting so much effort into it I mean how many times does a girl have to push you away before you decided it's not meant to be? I really really liked Dante He was my favorite kind of hero Strong and assertive without crossing that line into the uber alpha beat my chest cave man He certainly put in the effort with Caitlyn and did whatever he could to make things work with her He was sweet determined and protectiveI think my favorite character of the book was Caitlyn's friend Paul who was just awesomeand provided some much needed levity The story rebounded for me at the end leaving me with a nice HEA smile but it won't be on my re read list ARC courtesy of Entangled and Netgalley
