That’s the “mother of all insults?” PleaseI could introduce you to four letter words that would make your toes curl” To which I say Awesome Shoot me an email But firstlet me explain why the word “void” punches like Mike Tyson pre crazy trainVoid for this particular instance is defined as without contents emptyWell I don’t know about the rest of you but me personally? I’d like to believe I have at least an inkling of something significant going on inside whether it be happiness pain or disappointmentSo I started thinking About myself For the record I don’t advise thisit’s pretty scary and realized somethingmy coworker was right Smacks head At the end of the day I am one of the best listeners you will ever encounter Want to vent for eight hours straight? Knock your lights out I am a champion nodder But don’t expect me to reciprocate MY issues don’t leave the vault If I have a problem I can’t solve I’m going to bottle them up until I dissolve into tears on the bathroom floor THENI’m going to take that bathroom floor incident and shove it into the bottle with the original problem If you didn’t see me cry it never happened right? Treefalling in the forestblah blah blahI know probably than most that being externally “void” isn’t exactly healthy but when it comes to books? Denial and child like petulance make for cozy bed fellows Just ask Serena from “Love Me For Me” She makes me look like Dr PhilA fresh startIt’s been three years since Serena King learned to say no–no to the boys that were a desperate cry for help no to the extra weight she put on in self defense and most of all no to the abuse that has haunted her since she was fifteen Now a sopho in college all she wants is to be normal The last thing she expects is a guy who can make her want well everythingA new guyAlex Blackthorn is a bundle of contradictions a sexy dark haired badass who goes slow deliciously slow And despite the iron will that has gotten her through the last few years Serena finds herself unable to ignore the heat that sizzles between them whenever they’re togetherA dark pastSerena never thought she could be involved in a relationship but Alex makes her long for things she thought were out of her reach forever When he finds out her secret when he finds out what she did to keep herself sane will he still want her or he will treat her just like everyone else?And Alex has secrets of his ownWhen 50 Shades first came out I refused to read it Not because of its content I couldn’t have cared less about the BDSM but because everyone and their grandmother INSISTED I hop on the band wagon I don’t do well with mainstream pop culture throat shoving But after roughly 100 emails from followers asking for my “unfiltered opinion” I finally broke down and submitted pun intended to the masses Andafter a few days of marathon reading I finally had a response“The STORY is beautiful The WRITING needs to be doused with kerosene and lit on fire”Naturally this didn’t sit well with people“That doesn’t make any sense” “How is that even possible? Aren’t they the same thing?” “Are you sure you read the correct book?”All valid uestions except the last oneI mean really? I’m not that dumb And ones that I think I can finally after reading LMFM successfully answerLove Me For Me much like 50 Shades is about two tortured souls just trying to find a happy place in the world They both have secrets they both have communication issues Selena much than Alexadmittedly and they are both terrified of loving someone For one reason or another In Selena’s case it is insecurity of her past The story of how these two come together lean on each other and eventually trust each other is haunting thoughtful and beautiful The problem isthe writing conveying the story is less than stellarAs an imaginative person my mind is able to look past certain things like repetitiveness“The words were husky” said approx 20 times“This man who could have had any girl and yet seemed to have chosen me” said approx 10 times“My lids were at half mast” said approx 8 times“Startled a laugh out of him” said approx 8 times“This guy had me tied up in knots” said approx 5 timesBut to a casual reader nuances like these become a thorn Especially when a book has so few pages 146Also a problemunderestimating the readerThis genre has a formula and that formula usually involves some deep dark secret And while it’s ok to say it once “I won’t tell him my secret” It’s not necessary to reiterate it over and over We get it There is no need for the main character to continually repeat it To herself or out loud Doing this makes the reader feel small Like we aren’t smart enough to pick up on the “subtle” clues the author is throwing outBut here is where things get complicated The difference between “story” and “writing”If the bones aka plot of the story are strong enoughANY reader can overlook poor editing and less than spectacular writing and see what is meant to be seen And that is the feelings and intentions the STORY is trying to convey In the case of Selena and Alex and his perpetually gruffhusky voice – someone get that boy a glass of water the story was about forgiving and forgetting Letting go and moving forward Something I think all of us can relate to at one time or another The bumps in writing along the way DON’T change the STORY they just make it a little clumsy to get throughDoes that make sense? Let’s hope so because I’m not sure I can edit this post againOverall miles away from being the best book in this up and coming genre But a good starter book for a new author Let’s just hope she gets her sea legs soon because if she drowns due to technicalities it would be a shameTake it or leave it That’s my final verdictHappy Reading my fellow Kindle ites and remember Stories are what drives us not typos
