To Have and to Hold by Jennifer Baker


DNF @ 30%

This is actually so bad it's almost funny. A middle grade book about two college-age kids who decide to get married but written in a language for preteens? What makes it extra weird is that it deals with stuff like sex and underage drinking... what wild and crazy times the 90s were!

I'm doing this project where I hunt down and reread old books from the 80s and 90s that have been rereleased and are available on Kindle Unlimited to see how well they hold up. Some of them do... but this one definitely does not. It feels like an after school special and it's just too cheesy and I'm not even sure who the target audience is.

That said, it isn't bad written and the heroine, Julie, seems nice enough. But the love interest, Matt, is kind of pathetic. That's him on the cover, I guess, leering through that cameo peephole. *shudders*

1.5 out of 5 stars
