2 I didn't like it Stars
Okay here is the deal... I just all around didn't like this book! I have read and liked plenty of Clean romances(meaning no sex) but I have never read a Amish romance. I thought I would give this book a try. Now I wish I hadn't. Right out the gate all the Amish language was annoying me. I had to try and figure out what each thing meant. Gott, Haus, Schweschder, Denke, Jah, Grossdaddi, Nee, Boppli, Vadder, Familye, Bruder, Wunderbaar, Fraa, Kinner, Gut, Dat, Mamm, Bu, Englischer, Mudder, Kaffe, Just to name a few. And of course there was no word key so my lazy butt had to look up all these words on google.
On top of that I knew going into this book it would be a slow burn and most likely clean but there was no romance at all. Just Anita telling her brother over and over that she doesn't want a husband because her husband just died. Simon and Anita maybe spend like 2% of the book together and the rest of the book is about Anita living with her jerk of a brother Amos. Man did I hate Amos. He was a bully jerk who was rude to his brother n law, rude to his wife and rude to his sister. He just made me want to rip my hair out. I felt bad for anyone that had to be around Amos! The book skipped around a lot and was very superficial. There was no meat to the hero, heroine, or the plot. Overall I was just bored and annoyed. So yet just not my cuppa!
