Follow by J.A. Huss
I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it's always been.
Until I saw that filthy tweet.
@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue.#ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff
"FilthyBlueBird" thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn't be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She's wrong.
Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it's about to happen... now.
I've read one another book by J.A. Huss, Come. I loved it. I think I gave it five stars. Therefore, I went into Follow with very high expectations. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. In fact, it completely fell flat for me. I didn't like it at all.
The main characters drove me abso-freaking-lutely crazy. I couldn't stand either one of them. Vaughn Asher was such a jerk. He was very arrogant and egotistical, which annoys the hell out of me. For someone that supposedly has a lot of experience, he sucks as a dom. He's awkward when he is doing it, and he screws up multiple times. Even more annoying than Vaughn, was Grace's attitude. She put up with crap from him that no normal woman would have ever put up with, movie star or not. She also changed moods and decisions so quickly, I thought I was going to get whiplash. About twenty-five percent of the book was her deciding what to do. She was so wishy-washy. Just pick a freaking choice and stick with it already! Good Lord! It was so aggravating.
The other thing that really agitated me about Follow is that it is supposed to be a comedy. Maybe it's because the characters already ruined it for me, but I didn't find it funny at all. I don't think I even chuckled once while reading the book. The only thing I did like were the awesome hashtags at the beginning of each chapter. Some of them were incredibly creative.
Sadly, Follow just didn't do it for me. It's probably one of my least favorite books that I've read this year. However, I see a lot of people on Facebook that just love it. Everyone has different tastes.
I give Follow: 1/5.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
