Crazy For Books

I'm a film/television producer and book scout. I'm always looking for book material to work with. I love film and television as well as reading. The best job in the world is being able to marry the two.

HARD TIME by Cara McKenna

Hard Time - Cara McKenna

ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley for an honest review. 


Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I didn't hate it, but I didn't like it at all. I just didn't feel the attraction between these two characters. I didn't feel why Annie responded to Eric over anyone else. I mean, it wasn't like he was someone who was in prison falsely. And the ending just ended. There were no repercussions for her choice with her parents or anyone else for that matter. I mean, she pretty successfully kept the fact that he was a felon from everyone she knew. 

I thought the sex was boring, with all the "what do you want?", etc. It just went on and on. I found myself skimming by the time I got to about 50% of the book.

The book has gotten some amazing reviews and I wonder if I read the same book as everyone else. I guess we can't all like everything, Right?!
