#27 Blow Me Down by Katie MacAlister

My Rating: 5 out of 10 stars

This was an okay read. The author often went a little too heavy on the quips and trite phrases, which she openly admitted to in the afterword, but it had me gagging at times. I remember her doing this in her vampire books too. I liked the idea of the virtual reality game based on pirates, but wish there was a little less love and romance in the book overall. This book reminded me why I don’t like romances that much. I think were it not for the pirate VR aspect of it, I’d have put it aside without finishing it… I’ve got a huge stack of other stuff to read and almost felt this wasn’t worth my time, but like I said, the pirate VR aspect made it more interesting and kept me reading.

BTW, the quiz on the web site said I was most like Joy from the Vampire series. Hmmmm… I always thought she was super annoying. I guess I’ll have to watch myself to make sure I really don’t become like her!
