Under The Table by Stephanie Evanovich-DNF at 16%

DNF at 16%– I absolutely could not possibly read another page of this book. It took me three weeks of picking it up to read a chapter and finding more reason to delay reading more.

The main character is terrified of being in a major city like New York City and has to text her sister and her roommate when she has made it to destinations. Yet she is so city savvy that she is going to take on shy millionaire “geek” and teach him how to live in the tough city? Tristan is drop-dead gorgeous yet (OF COURSE) wears a bow tie and suspenders to a business dinner because we have to drill in the fact that he is a “geek”. It just seemed like the writing was so rushed that they took all of the brainstorms for a character and shoved it into the first two chapters in order to fill in a lack of a plot. I assume the ex-husband is supposed to be a villain character but instead he is also an over-the-top meathead. I also assume this is in order to contrast with “geek” Tristan to make him more perfect. It was excessive and I cannot force myself to go through any more of this so-called plot.

Please note: a physical ARC of this novel was generously provided by the publisher through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program-thank you for the opportunity!
