Review: Your Favorite Girl by Steph Sweeney


I've been in a weird mood lately. I've been avoiding reading altogether because I'm tired of reading that same story over and over. I'm talking about those lovey dovey romance novels that make me want to slit my wrists with a dull razor blade. The author of this book messaged me that she had a free promo going on for this book and I thought "Hey, that would be perfect to read!" I decide to peek at the 1 star reviews...yes, I said 1 star...because they are always entertaining. When one reviewer said "To brutal and sadistic for my taste" I immediately one clicked this bitch! I LOVED this book! I just kept thinking "this is so sick and twisted...what just happened? damn, that's kinda hot. NO, that's totally fucked up. You shouldn't think that's hot. Ren, you're fucking sick in the head. BUT I CAN'T LOOK AWAY!"

Can you make sense of what I just said? It totally made sense in my head.

I came into this with an open mind. I always expect the worst when you read those disclaimers. Why these other reviewers didn't pay mind to that is beyond me. I can't even put into words how perfect this story was written. Almost every question I had was answered by the end of the story.(I'm assuming my main question will have to wait until book 2) I'm SO frickin happy that there wasn't an insta-love thing going on. Yes, there was that instant attraction between the two, but it wasn't acted on until late in the book. My only gripe was that Melissa, the main character, fell a little flat. This may just be me but she was kinda boring. She did have a bit of a mouth on her at times and I would have loved to see more of that.

The premise of the story was so interesting. Seriously, who thinks of this shit? It was brilliant! Genetically modified sex slaves? That's wicked! The author even goes into detail on how they are created. It gives it this sci-fi feel and makes the book edgier. If you are looking for a great erotica that doesn't skimp on the story then this is the read for you!

authorMe, Awkwardly Talking “About Me”

My name is Steph Sweeney, and I write novels.

Read a few blog posts and you’ll see I’m a college dropout-turned-waitress who lives alone (meaning yes, creepy dudes on Facebook, I’m single).  I don’t even have a cat.  Though I do possess a firearm, a faster draw speed than you, no hesitation to pull the trigger, and damn good accuracy. =)

I’ve been a passionate and devoted writer for 15 years.  It’s all I’ve ever been and all I’ve ever wanted to be.

And believe me, baby, that’s not a pick-up line.

I’m going to prove it to you the same way I would prove to the creepy Facebook pervert that he shouldn’t have paid me a visit:

I’m going to write books faster and better than everyone else.  I’m going to give you bad-ass, emotionally gripping, character-driven, fascinating plots.  I’m going to blow your mind, your lid, your load–your freakin’ leaves off the driveway if that’s what it takes.

The rest will take care of itself.
