Book Review: Dating Bender by Christina Julian

Goodreads Synopsis:

Here I am, on my knees in front of the Trevi Fountain, hoping like hell the legend is true. That the fountain gives you solace and love by a mere toss of a coin.

Why am I here, exactly? Let’s see…

It started with my parents telling me to get married. Of course, being the good Catholic girl I am, I did.

Needless to say, that marriage nosedived, and my parents weren’t exactly happy about it.

Newly ditched and shamefully disowned, I decided to follow the advice of Babs, a tart-of-a-mentor, who offered me a job in Colorado.

Her advice? Sex…and lots of it.

The temptation of freedom, to do whatever—whoever—I wanted was too damn strong for me to say no.

And that’s how it all started. The men, the sex, the journey…

The dating bender.

because everybody deserves a do-over

Chick and Brain Rating 1 out of 5

I honestly had high expectations when it came to this book. This is exactly my type of book, a little bit of drama, a sassy female lead, and hot steamy sex. However by about 20% of the way through the book, I had a feeling this book was not what I had hoped it would be.

For debut novel this had great potential, but the repetitive nature of the story line and the flat characters do not help the story develop in the way we would all hope.

By 50% of the way finished I was still unable to connect to the story or any of the characters. Feeling at this point I had given the book an honest shot, I chose to not complete it.

Because I did not finish the book, I can not give an honest recommendations to other readers. This book is more possibly just not my cup of tea, everyone should give it an honest shot before passing judgement

*I have received this ARC in exchange for an honest review*
