“The Naked Truth” by Vi Keeland ~ Book Review

The Naked TruthThe Naked Truth by Vi Keeland

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

MY RATING:
⭐️⭐️ 2-Stars (and that’s being generous, but I didn’t dnf it)

I almost DNF’d this one. I stopped half way through and it sat on my shelf for about a week until I, for some insane reason, made myself read it. I thought perhaps it was me just being in a funk and not the novel (considering I loved ‘Egomaniac’) but NOOOOOO it was definitely the novel and yet I finished it.

CONS:

☠️ – SOOOOOOOO drawn out! Ridiculously slow

☠️ – WAY overboard on the repetitive explanations of the emotion and situation at hand. It was like nails on a chalkboard through reading. How many times can the same emotion and circumstance be explained? Apparently eight thousand times with the assumption readers are dumbasses!

☠️ – Layla was a wet rag of a protagonist character

PROS:

🔥 / ☠️ – Good storyline, bad execution

BOTTOM LINE:

⭐️⭐️ – I really think ‘Egomaniac’ is an anomaly for Miss Keeland’s writing. I have read five of her novels and nothing is close to as enjoyable as that was. This one was a complete miss and not worth reading in my opinion, I think her name & marketing as a Goodread’s Choice Award author is what perpetuates her high ratings especially for this one. . .last work: SKIP IT, SERIOUSLY!
