(Pdf/E–book) The Godfathers Lover
Somato Respiratory Integration Workbook gS enough to detract from my enjoyment of it I ll leave it unrated for now I enjoyed this book but I think it would have benefitted from being longer The reader didn t reallyet to see the relationship between Jarod and Chris develop although about a year passed during the course of the book Had I seen of the interaction between the two men during this time period I think it would have been easier to believe in the decisions that Chris went on to make For a relatively simple book this is somewhat of a difficult review to write A large part of this is because of the potential this story had that failed to be realized I don t want to Reine Mädchensache give this book a rating as I think a low rating would be overly simplisticFor some reason when reading this book I kept thinking about a J2 fanfic I don t know why But that is the way it came across to me In fanfiction authors canet away with a lot of poor characterization because readers know exactly who you are talking about and their minds fill in the blanks and their love for the persons involved make them willing to forgive holes in plot etcBut in original works the
author does not have that luxury and has to flesh out the characters to make them appealing to the does not have that luxury and has to flesh out the characters to make them appealing to the And that was something that this book did not accomplish The characters were not as dull as some I have read but they did lack life At times their actions did not seem justified at all even when taken in context based on what the author told us of themAn example It is plainly stated that Jarod is a man ho with no shortage of hunks lining up to do him Repeatedly Jarod expresses disbelief at how deeply his feelings for Chris develop Well I was disbelieving too I mean that first meeting against the wall there was NOTHING shown in Chris to set him apart from all them other uys WHY exactly did Jarod see him any differentlyI found that the author tried to make us feel sympathetically for Jarod Bastard father poor mother who died etc But I just could not like the character It wasn t as if Jarod was forced into the clan life unwillingly and he just trying to do his duty through
coercion Jarod revels in his business and the book plainly says Jarod revels in his business and the book plainly says has murdered people etc And then talks about him being a man who respects honor etc I just didn t buy it and cannot empathize and like such a characterFurther Chris was unbelievable For someone who the author tries to cast in a poor me on low self esteem light etc Chris is an excellent manipulator Obviously since cast in a poor me on low self esteem light etc Chris is an excellent manipulator Obviously since priest father figure was killed by the same Clan Jarod belongs to he entered the FBI thing for revenge I found it so hard to believe that he could so easily throw away his desire for vengeance that he had simmering for YEARS I mean some of the men who did it could damn well be working for Jarod And even if it WAS Jarod s father and no Jarod running things at that time Chris was TOO logical and methodical T’s not like Chris Wilkinson’s job or life was oing anywhere Why wouldn’t he want to be the kept man of the most powerful mob boss in Los Angeles But Chris Wilkinson is than he appears and so is Jarod GreeneIn the City of Angels where every foundation I m DNFing this one at about 70% The dialogue is too stilted for me and the characters feel very unrealistic I am a fan of the mobstercop pairing but this one is just not working for me Hmmm so lots of bad ratings on this one but I have to say before the 90% mark I would have Offenders and Detainees given it four stars Maybe my standards are lower because the mm mob books I ve been subjected to lately have been so lacking but if I read a book where the male characters actually act like men instead of simpering teenageirls it s already ahead of the qasas-ul-quran game Sad but true But to address some of the complaints I LIKED Jarod and Chris first sexual encounter in the alley It was unapologetic and un sappy I can see where others would take issue with the logic of it but it didn t bother me and hey he used lube What is with all the dry fcking in books lately It is NOT sexy I LIKED the pacing of how they eventually became full time lovers I can see other people s issue with Chris abandoning his life to be with Jarod but again I rolled with it Yes Jarod doesn to around killing people etc but the book was 98 pages I never doubted that he was a crime boss it was all there in the way he carried himself expected to be obeyedhe was pure alpha male and I loved that I really liked Jarod s character both Jarod s and Chris actuallyUp until 90% the bigger issues for me were as followsI never really understood what faction of mob the Greene clan was Jarod was called The Godfather of Los Angeles but with a name like Jarod Greene I didn T Really Get They Were Italian Mafia Though Their really et that they were Italian mafia though their seemed be The author would also make reference to the clan so were they Irish KKK I jest But seriously I couldn t tell She would also refer to the members as brothers of the clan which made things even confusingWhat exactly did the Greene clan DO Ok they ran some nightclubsand that s it They were against drugs in the neighborhood so did they run uns Did they have a prostitution ring What was Jarod the odfather of exactly
The World Building There Needed world building there needed workStill as I always say I was willing to roll with itThen 90% happenedWHATTHEHELLAt times like this I am convinced that some authors either have no friends family beta readers editors or a publisher Clearly this was self edited and self published Ok so it wasn tbut anyone who read this and didn t say to the author ehhhhhh no failed and needs to be fired unfriended or never invited to holiday dinner again The ending totally ruined the book It was not only unrealistic to the point of being silly it didn t resolve anything My mind is in knots just trying to follow how and why the characters would know the things they supposedly knew and o on about their business like it was all ok and how things are supposed to work Hear the Wolves going forwardSighAt this rate I have no idea what rating toive the book I really really liked it up until the ending but the ending wa. Jarod Greene doesn’t know anything about love but that didn’t stop him from taking an IT intern from the FBI up against the wall in a moment of confusion and passion It certainly didn’t keep him from asking the wide eyed intern to be his kept lover And ,
