The Beloved One by Danelle Harmon



DNF @ 7%

I was so excited for this book because I did a BR of the first book in the series, THE WILD ONE, with my friends, and we really enjoyed it. I couldn't wait to read further into the series and managed to convince my very good friend Heather to join me. God, just look at that original 90s cover. Doesn't the hero look like he's taken the heroine to a park for the express purpose of appreciating his man boob next to a scenic backdrop of Doric columns?

I'm sorry to say that this is the first Danelle Harmon I didn't like, however, so-bad-it's-good cover or no. I think there's actually a couple reasons of this. First, the original appears to be a tidy 360+ pages, whereas the Kindle edition I had (republished with a not so great cover) has 500+. It kind of seems like maybe this was rewritten and repackaged, but I'm not so sure it should have been because this feels overwritten in a way that some of the author's other novels didn't, and I hope she didn't do this to all of her books, because I actually thought some of her other ones were really, really great.

1 out of 5 stars
