Little Miss Red by Robin Palmer

Alright… A review for this one. Now, I haven’t read this one in a while, so it might be rusty.

Ok, soooo, let’s start with Sophie Greene.
Good grades,
good reputation,
nice boyfriend.

I would say perfect, but she doesn’t really love him. Of course her family does. She thinks something’s wrong with her, because he does everything right. He shows up on time, he calls when he should call, he has great fashion sense (which is pretty rare with guys), doesn’t mind
shopping, and is always there when she needs him.

So what’s wrong? Why doesn’t she love him?

She doesn’t know, she just wants a change.

Oh, let’s not forget she’s also obsessed with some book series and the star of them, Devon Deveraux. She wants to be just like her.
Sophie is obviously a hopeless romantic. She wants her Prince Charming to come save her.

So when she goes to Florida to visit her Grandma, she meets this guy who looks exactly like her favorite guy in the books she’s reading. Apparently, he’s really hot & foxy (whatever that’s supposed to mean).

She swoons.

Next thing you know, they’re a couple.
I’m not spoiling it for you, but there are bumps in the road as Sophie has to make the choice between wild and safe.
(Isn’t that so intense?)

I did not enjoy this book.
If the point of it was to make girls cry and lose all faith in love, well then it did a great job.
(no I did not cry)
It sent the message:
DO NOT LOVE. DO NOT FALL IN LOVE. YOU’LL JUST BE IN PAIN. ALL LOVE IS FAKE. DON’T EVEN TRY. JUST GIVE UP NOW. JUST GIVE UP.

I am sure I’m not the only one who got that message.
Even if it did have a happy ending, it would be a waste of paper. Another little fluffy ending. Nothing more.
So, yeah. I did not like this book.
And unless you like books that tell you love will crush your soul, etc., don’t read it.

This book made me facepalm.

(Now, all respect to the author, because it was written very well. I just didn’t like the story)

I’ve decided to rate my books on from 1-5, using FACES now.

So this book gets……

*drumroll*

ONE!
