There's nothing I love more than a good book, the more angst the better for me. I received my first e-reader a little over two years ago and since then my reading habit increased 100x. The 1-click buy now option is now my dealer and I'm addicted. I read anywhere between 400-500 books a year of all genres but mostly the books that I read fall into the romance/erotica category. Until recently I avoided leaving written reviews for the books that I've read but recently I made the decision to try to review what I can. All reviews that I write are based solely on my own opinion. I am not swayed by other reviews or opinions and I could care less if my review is the only good or bad review left for a book. I'm honest to a fault when it comes to that. My reviews may not be popular but they are mine :)


Refuge (Book One) - N. G. Osborne


I am not going to give this book a star rating due to the fact that I had to dnf it at 50%.


OMG! I cannot STAND this heroine! There is nothing I hate more than a self righteous heroine. I find her even more disgusting since compared to 98% of the other females who live in refugee camps, she has had it EASY! She has made it to adulthood retaining her virtue (as far as I know), she has a job, she has HOPE for her future. While so many other's just exist! The fact that she is aware of her "righteous indignation" does not make her character tolerable in the least bit.


Charlie is a good man who deserves someone who has the ability to actually care for someone other than herself. It is his wonderful friendship with his driver that had made the first half worth reading.


The writing itself was decent despite the fact that even at the halfway point I still had no clue what Charlie looked like. He was tall, slim, and he had a 3 inch scar on his cheek was about all I knew.
