There were a few that had slow starts but once I got to the middle of the book, the story and pace picked up, leaving me satisfied at the end and glad I persevered. There have been a few that started well but kinda lost me somewhere afterward, but still, I read to the end. And there were one or two that started badly and stayed bad, but I kept reading, hoping the story would get better (they never did and I was left with the feeling that I had wasted my time).
I’ve only read one book that made me want to throw it at the wall, but perhaps it was me and the story just wasn’t what I was looking for at the time or perhaps, I had too much other stuff going on in my life that made it impossible for me to like that story.
Have you ever been disappointed in a romance novel? What was it about the story you didn’t like? Did it turn you off of that author? Or did you pick up his/her next release, hoping it was better than the last?
