Book Review: Spencer

by Kerry Heavens

@TheSpencerRyan exudes confidence,
I mean, have you seen him???
His dark good looks and tattooed muscled perfection are too much.
He's hot. Lickably hot.
And he has a way with words that leaves me breathless.
But cocky doesn't even cover it,
this guy is so arrogant you have to fight back.
But God he's so lickable!
The thing is though,
he looks like sex but he'll taste like jackass.

@OMGJazzyP is a sexy, annoying ball of rage in fuck-me heels
and she hates me.
Although her nipples would tend to disagree.
It's a deadly combination.
She’s a princess.
And when I say princess, I mean intolerable, spoiled brat with a tiara.
Sure she's got that curvaceous goddess thing going on,
but that mouth of hers...
God it needs something in it to shut it up.

This is not your average British romance.
It's a tale of high heels, hot tattooed bad boys and
sex oranges, all wrapped up in a coating of chocolate.
It's 'love' in a social media world,
where not everyone is who they seem
and where some people’s bios should carry a warning.

TeriLyn's thoughts: I feel really bad because so many of my GR friends loved this very much. I've been wanting to read it for a while now and I thought the cover was hot. Unfortunately, Spencer just wasn't for me. I could not get on board with Spencer Ryan Twitter antics. A man that self absorbed isn't a man that appeals to me. There's a difference between being an arrogant jerk and being a confident jerk. I liked the cocky manwhore he was outside of Twitter which was directly opposite of how the heroine Jazz felt giving me less of a kinship with her. She was way too back and forth for me. Throughout the entire book her feelings juggled between lust and hate making it seem unfathomable how one could continue on the same course of action with this man. The whole story felt juvenile and underdeveloped because of how they acted. Normally, stories of "I hate you/I like you/I need to bang you" are right up my alley but I couldn't connect with either character nor could I understand their connection especially for two people in their mid-twenties. The whole Twitter act throughout the entire story seemed very adolescent. The only silver lining for me was Mags and Will, each of the main characters friends.

There are a lot of hot sex scenes in Spencer where the writer did a great job with the passion. If she could have made their dialogue richer and more mature those scenes could have really hooked me, even the cyber ones. Her writing was fast and easy to follow just not powerful enough to hook me. I'd classify this as steamy NA and it's told from both characters points of view.
