Linz Loves Romance

I've loved romance novels since...like forever. I read across most subgenres of romance. I also write fantasy/paranormal and new adult romance.

Reading progress update: I've read 102 out of 432 pages.

Beautiful Player - Christina Lauren

Sorry, but I'm DNF-ing this one. It's just not working for me. Part of it is the trope--younger sister likes older brother's friend--is not a favorite of mine. Part of it is I can't get a handle on the hero, Will. He's a biology Ph.D./financial whiz who has scheduled sex with women named Krissy and Kirby (or something like that). Brainiac-bro-sex-god, I guess.


Also, Will talks to the heroine's boobs. They are still just friends, but he talks to her boobs. As for the heroine, she's fine--kind of a lost kitten in grad school. Her childhood nickname is Ziggy. All I can picture is the cartoon character. So, I tried, but it just isn't hooking me. Plus, I'm 100 pages in and their physical relationship is still at zero.
