F*ck, she’s doing it to me again. And I love the way it feels, almost as
much as she does…
Ok. I normally devour and love everything Vivian Wood gives us, her books bring the romance ALIVE. I have a lot of mixed feeling about His Brother’s Fiancee. I may have misinterpreted the blurb or something because this book didn’t feel like it was the product of that blurb.
I would have enjoyed more background on King and Effie, and even Thorne, to get to know their story a little better. We got bits here and there but they’re not very enlightening. I couldn’t connect with these characters very well, King didn’t have too much going on in character development, all we know is he seems to have matured in his time away from home. King was very kind and sweet, when he got through all his issues with Effie, I loved him. I did like his character way more than Effie. Effie alone, with her inner dialogue is just…so immature/annoying. I mean she’s immature in general, her actions prove it, not calling her job for a week to say she is stuck in a snow storm, deciding to agree to date her ex’s brother because it will piss off her ex. I just thought for everything she has gone through in such a short amount of time we would get a stronger, more level headed heroine.
Now, those two together? Crazy sexy chemistry! Yes, there were a lot of sex scenes, whatever, I really don’t care. They were hot and yes, he was “shaming ” her during them, but she liked it and it turned her on so whatever again. I thoroughly enjoyed their scenes together.
As far as secondary characters go, I adored Ya Ya so much, she as the best character! She was old and sweet, spunky and knowledgable. And I liked her interactions with King a lot. Thorne and Clem (Effie’s mom) were the worst characters ever. Completely devious and self centered individuals with no redeemable qualities. And the apology from Clem, and the explanation into what made Thorne so evil felt super forced and out of place. It just all didn’t sit right with me.
Again, I love Vivian Wood books, this one just did not hit the spot for me. But we all think and feel differently, so maybe you’ll enjoy it.
