When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy they decide that as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the jobunbeknownst to RoryTyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory She’s I was beyond pleasantly surprised by this book I’ve read Erin McCarthy’s Fast track series and really enjoyed it However I’m always nervous when an author changes genres – even if it’s as simple as Contemporary Romance to New Young Adult I skimmed the blurb before reading and honestly expected the same ol’ same ol’ It seemed like an overdone New YA plotline college age virgin falls for bad boy And in the end I guess it was the same basic plot line I’ve read dozens of times except that this time the hero and heroine were differentI’ve gotta admit I ADORE Rory I mean I flat out love this girl I was worried in the beginning that her insecurities were going to drive me crazy but I got over that pretty uickly What I loved about her was that she was so utterly honest and logical Seriously this was not the hormonal angst ridden early twenties drama ueen that I’m so used to reading I think I’ve gotten so used to at least mildly disliking the heroine in a book that I almost didn’t know what to do with how much I liked Rory She is seriously left brained all the way She knows that sets her apart and even though she doesn’t want it to she’s also too honest with herself to think that she can really change something so basic She still craves connection though ”Rory you are one interesting chick”Interesting wasn’t exactly a riveting compliment but he hadn’t called me a freak which is how I felt sometimes As if I had been assembled in a different way altogether than everyone around me and while I like the end result everyone else was confused about how to interpret my very existence” There were several times that she met things that would have sent any other person into a balling heap on the floor with such amazing fortitude and stoicism I couldn’t help but admire her It also made it all that much impactful when she did finally break downI loved Tyler too He was so much than your average hot tatted up pierced bad boy You uickly get to see the guy behind all that hotness and everything you see demonstrates that he is a good man with a heart of gold whose first instinct is to protect those he cares about All of his other good ualities aside the thing I loved most about him was how he loved Rory He was just as honest with her as she was with him There was no bs love at first sight There was no overwhelming insta lust which had them fast forwarding through the get to know you stage – just real honest connection “I never stood a fucking chance did I You had me the minute I first saw you and I heard you telling the guy next to you that you were premed and that the Human Centipede movie is physically impossible” I liked that the story didn’t just focus on Rory and Tyler’s relationship and involved their relationships with their families and friends It certainly provided a believable framework for why they both were the way they were and really added to the depth of the storyMy one beef is the ending Don’t get me wrong this is certainly stand alone There won’t be any gnashing of teeth wondering what will happen to Rory and Tyler but certain things are set into motion view spoiler like what is Tyler going to do with his life now that he can’t be an EMT like he planned And what is going to happened to his youngest brother now that the mom is dead Would they let him stay with Tyler since he’s a felon now What happens to their house that is in foreclosure hide spoiler

Erin McCarthy ò True AUTHOR Erin McCarthy pdf

True AUTHOR Erin McCartSmart doctor smart while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back I will start by saying that I only read this because I got it for free and I wanted to be able to offer a counterpoint to what I saw as a determination to sweep the book's problematic elements under the rug and dismiss its critics as oversensitive I didn't start it with an open mind based on the first chapter posted at Dear Author I fully expected to not only dislike the book but to hate it In the end the book proved so unenjoyable for me that I couldn't finish itWhat made it so unenjoyable for me ended up not being all the problematic stereotypes although there were plenty of those believe you me it was the awkward writing McCarthy wrote some of the weirdest dialog and prose I've read in a while She had uestionable metaphors Fear flooded my mouth not uite similes She made those fuzzy circle scarves that were like an acrylic barrier between your skin and the wind and really mangled the whole first person narration thing For example there's this line shared in the middle of an account of her being sexually assaulted “I had long dark red hair which made it easy for him to entwine his fingers to control my head and my neck holding me so I couldn’t move” Unless red hair has extra grip than other colored hair and my heart goes out to gingers everywhere if it does the middle of a traumatic event is the wrong time to info dump about her hair colorIf you can hang with her writing your reward is a steaming pile of stereotypes about race and poverty The first chapter is lousy with it“It was too far to walk back to the dorms and it was the kind of off campus neighborhood that had my dad raising his eyebrows and suggesting I go to college in some cow town like Bowling Green where there were no dirty couches on sagging front porches and no residents’ smoking crack in full view of the streetSo walking back was not happening because I didn’t smoke crack and I was no risk taker At allYet sitting there alone with Grant while my roommates were off having a good time almost seemed riskier than strolling through the ghetto Because it was sort of like perching over a public toilet seat without actually touching anything It was difficult Awkward”I'm not totally sure what my favorite comparison was to be honest Using a racially charged word like ghetto along with the also fraught crack smoking was some primo shit but parallelling a poor neighborhood and a gross toilet seat was also pretty amazing Just in case you missed the POOR NEIGHBORHOOD IS FULL OF BLACK PEOPLE vibe the chapter closes out with a throwaway fried chicken reference I followed Tyler down the metal stairs the smell of fried foods strong in the hallway I don't think any of this was necessary to establish 1 that the heroine can't leave the apartment on her own or 2 that she's fairly sheltered and unaware of her privilege Seeing as how all the protagonists are white I don't see how any of the racial imagery was relevantAnd I'm gonna go ahead and say this in all caps SEXUAL ASSAULT ISN'T A MEET CUTE Seriously While she's in this apartment she can't leave on her own a friend of the hero's roommate tries to force fellatio on the heroine He's stopped by the hero swooping as her white knight It serves no purpose but to introduce the hero and heroine and make the hero look like a champion No one calls the cops although I get that as cops are almost useless with SA and the heroine doesn't seem to react to it much Directly after it she accepts a ride home alone from the hero who she doesn't know Makes perfect sense in Romance Logic since we know he's the hero but I found her willingness to trust her own character judgement so uickly just bizarre The would be rapist shows up again halfway through the book to sow some drama and that's about it It's a pretty superficial plot deviceI didn't finish it so I can't say from personal experience but I'm pretty sure there's a generous helping of ableism as well in the form of the hero's younger brother who has Down Syndrome I did notice everyone spoke to him like they would to a puppy but all the dialog was so forced that I'm wary of attributing to malice what can be explained by incompetence And don't even get me going on the portrayal of poverty The hero is trying to work his way out of poverty caused by his mother's drug addiction Because this is Romancelandia OF COURSE they're poor because their parents were lazy bad people who had the weak character to fall prey to addiction This one gets an F for fuck you
