***I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review***
Rating 2/5 stars
I usually know within the first few chapters whether a book is for me or not. The first few chapters of A Slippery Slope were interesting enough for me to keep reading, but shortly after the story sort of fell apart.
The story opens with Natalie Bloom throwing a surprise party for her boyfriend Matthew. Only later, while at that very party, does she catch him cheating on her. Matthew broke her heart and apparently took Natalie’s maturity with him. Although I didn’t like the MC, I floved Jackson Wirth. If you look up book boyfriend in the dictionary I just made up, his name is there in bright bold letters.
It’s hard to say exactly what I didn’t like about this book. Was it the juvenile writing? The overuse of ugh in the story. The annoying job Natalie had? And I don’t mean the coffee shop Holy Grounds, I mean selling lube. It felt like the author went out of her way to give her MC a unique job and in my opinion, it ruined what could have been a great romance.
A Slippery Slope wasn’t for me, but it might be exactly what you’re looking for. It’s a light, easy read.
